How much does it cost to move state to state?
The average move for an local move is estimated to be around $1,150 while the average long distance moving price is about $5,000. Keep in mind professional movers tend to charge by the mileage rather than the time. Variables used in long distance moves:
- Shipment weight
- Valuation and Insurance
- Add on service
Ex: Mark is relocating to Fort Lauderdale,Florida from Raleigh, NC. He has a 2 bed room apartment. The selected long distance moving company will take the tare weight and minus the weight of your shipment(at a weigh station). This determines shipment weight. Mark’s shipment weighs 4,500 lbs. The distance between the two states are 781 mi.
Let’s say the moving company choose to charge $76.80 per mile. 781 x 76.80= $3, 456.
Currently mileage rates for gas $0.65 x 1,562= $1,015.30 (this is fuel incurred leaving and returning back to company origin).
Total estimated cost: $4,471.30
This is only an estimate.
