Greg & Brett were awesome - Loved their attitude! They really made my move a breeze, while making sure that all my things were handled properly (not to mentioned they were super COVID-safe). Would highly recommend for anyone looking to move in NYC!

    Long Distance Moving

    Your long-distance moving questions, answered!

    The average time it takes to complete a long distance move is between 10 and 14 days. Long-distance movers drive about 400 - 500 miles per day, so they might be able to get the job done faster than imaginable if needed.

    The average cost to move across state lines to or from New York, NY is $6,000 with moves to some states even more expensive than others (e.g., Los Angeles, California at an estimated $8,500).

    When looking for a professional and trustworthy moving service in New York City, first make sure you understand the type of moving services you need (do you need interstate movers, or an international moving company?), check out the online reviews of various moving companies, and make sure they provide clear upfront rates without any hidden additional costs, as well as a pre-move walk through. High-quality, trustworthy, reliable movers will also be able to provide a customized move plan and stress-free moving experience. Also, check online reviews. Read the customer reviews on Google, Yelp, and Foursquare to see what kind of moving service experience their past long distance moving customers have had.

    You can find long distance moving in NYC in as little as one month before your move.

    One of the best ways to keep things organized during an upcoming long distance move is by hiring movers at least two months ahead of time, but if you're under tight deadlines and only have about four weeks, it's not too late. Long distance moving requires much more planning and preparation than local moves.

    Tips From Bellhop Long Distance Moving Company

    Long distance and interstate moving trips to or from NYC can be a monumental process, but with the right plan you'll have a successful transition. It's important to get organized and make sure you're prepared when moving. These tips are meant to help you get ready for a perfect, stress-free move!

    At Bellhops, we pride ourselves on being a reliable long distance relocation company in the NYC area. We take care of all the details and processes from packing up your belongings, loading them onto our trucks, unloading them at your destination and unpacking them in their designated rooms.

    We are experienced residential move experts who know how to handle delicate items with care, so they arrive safely at your new home.

    • Don't overpack! Cut down on the potential for injuries to yourself by keeping each box light enough to lift easily. Put fragile or seasonal items, household belongings, and non-perishable food items in separate boxes
    • Use smaller cardboard boxes, not big moving boxes. Smaller boxes will be easier to lift, move, and find storage for in your new home.
    • Pack a box per room or floor of your home. Label each one so it's easy to find what you're looking for in the chaos
    • Throw out any unwanted items or unneeded items before you start to pack. The fewer boxes you have, the less storage space you'll need to find as you get settled in your new home
    • Start packing soon after you get the keys to your new home
    • Organize boxes by room, then pack them according to which rooms they'll be in
    • If you have a lot of furniture, lots of valuable items, or other precious items, make sure the household movers come will come with equipment like dollies and pads
    • Research short-term and long-term storage options for any items you may not want to move right away or have the storage room for in your new home. Placing items into storage ahead of time will also cut down on moving day stress.

    -Cover furniture with tarps or plastic sheets

    -Keep boxes away from windows and anything that might be damaged by rain

    -Ask your moving team to come an hour or two in advance of the bad weather. If they can't, make sure you are prepared for them coming after it happens

    • Tidy up both your new and old home. Make sure to remove any trash that may have accumulated over the time you've lived in your old home.
    • Take down pictures and pack them
    • Clean bathroom, kitchen or living room sinks with bleach
    • Make sure all floors are vacuumed of dirt, hair and other debris
    • Prepare storage solutions for items ahead of time things that won't be needed immediately, rather than leaving them packed in boxes and left in a room.

    Now it’s your move.

    We understand that every move is unique, which is why you have the ability to tailor your services to best fit your needs. Let us unpack what you’re looking for.
