FAQs

  • Introduction

    If you're moving locally, or at least within the same state, you'll want to hire a reputable local moving company to get the job done safely. Interstate movers are registered with the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, but local moving companies often only have to comply with state regulations; it may be beneficial to learn the licensing process in your state in order to find a company you can trust. Another good way to ensure that your selected moving company is properly licensed is by looking through our top picks.

    If you're moving across state lines, you won't just have to verify that a company is licensed locally. They'll need to have the legal authority to operate in any of the states you'll be crossing. Many local moving companies partner with van lines to make sure they can pass regulatory hurdles and can facilitate your move smoothly, no matter the distance.
  • What is considered long-distance moving?

    Generally, if a move is over 400 miles, it's considered a long-distance move, but the definition varies between moving companies. Some consider a long-distance move to be one that takes the cargo across state or international borders. There are significant differences in cost and regulatory clearance between a long-distance move and a local move.

  • How far in advance should I hire movers?

    Hiring a mover at least four weeks in advance ensures that a variety of reputable options will be available. In some regions or during the summer when movers are busier, it's recommended that anyone looking for a licensed mover arrange the booking two to three months from the moving date.

  • Do you pay movers before or after?

    You may be asked to pay a small deposit before your move, but payment in full happens after the move is complete and your possessions are inside your new home. This ensures that the movers complete the job to your satisfaction before getting paid.

  • How much does a moving company cost?

    On average, the cost of a local move (intrastate or under 400 miles) is around $1,250. This includes labor, fuel, insurance, and several other factors. If a move is considered to be long-distance, it will likely be around $4,900, with a wider variance based on the specific demands involved.

  • How much do I tip movers?

    Based on the performance of the movers and the difficulty of the job, you should tip anywhere between 5% and 20% of the total cost of your move. Most people recommend tipping in cash at the end of the final day of the move.

  • How much is it to rent a moving van?

    The cost to rent a moving van without a crew to assist in the move depends on the size, the length of the rental, and the distance it is being driven. The average cost of renting a van ranges anywhere from $100 for a local move to $2,000 for long-distance.
