What is the Long Distance Moving Cost?

Long distance moves can easily cost a ton of money, especially if you choose to carry out the relocation on your own. Most movers will charge by the mile so that they can cover the cost of fuel and other expenses while on the road. If you chose to rent a truck, you would still be charged by the mile. In fact, you’d likely be charged more per mile just for the truck rental. When you hire a moving company for long distance relocation, you are getting much more for your money, plus the guarantee of a safe and timely relocation.

The cost of a long distance move can range drastically but assuming you’re charged around a $1.00 per mile along with the other charges included in your final cost for moving services, moving out of state will cost somewhere around $1,000 per room. Some movers will charge by the hour and in this case, expect to pay about $25 to $50 per hour of labor and add a few more hundred to that total to cover the other charges that will be included into your total.

About a Long Distance Mover’s Insurance Coverage

The insurance coverage provided by the mover is their way of assuring the safe delivery of all your belongings. Every state determines the amount of insurance required for moving companies to carry. In most cases, this is about $0.60 per pound of a customer’s things. This may not protect the entire value of your stuff but it is protection you wouldn’t otherwise have if you chose to move your belongings without professional assistance.

A-1 Auto Transport can help you move your household goods nationwide. Call 888-241-3110 to get a free, no obligation to buy price quote on interstate moving services.

Many movers will allow their customers to purchase additional insurance coverage. This is usually just a small charge and it is well worth it for anyone with long distance relocation ahead of them. Although accidents aren’t typical of an experienced long distance mover, it is wise to make sure that the value of your things is protected during the relocation process just in case.

Ways to Save

There are several ways to save money during your relocation. You can package your things on your own which will reduce the cost of your moving services. You can also take advantage of alternative packing materials such as linens, newspaper, recycled boxes (gather them from local shops), and other similar materials that will keep your belongings protected during the move.

Another way to save and earn money at the same time is by holding a garage sale. Sort through your things, before they are packed away by you or the mover. Gather the things you no longer want but that can still be of use to someone else. Hold a garage sale to try and rid of some of your stuff. This will put cash in your pocket and lighten the weight of your stuff that must be transported to the new location. If any of your things don’t sell, donate them.

There are a lot of options for auto transport these days, which surprisingly makes it harder to find a good company. I received more than 10 offers to ship my car, but I couldn’t decide on any of them... Fortunately, I made the right choice with A1 Auto Transport.
