What is residential freight shipping?

There are actually a couple of different answers to that question because the term “residential freight shipping” is used interchangeably. It typically either means shipping freight directly to your residence, or shipping your household goods on a freight trailer.

Let’s go over some options for both of these cases.

Moving Company Prices

The price you’ll pay to move varies based on the type of moving service you choose, how much you’re moving and when you’re moving. On average, full-service movers are the pricier option – which makes sense when you consider that you’re paying for both labor and transportation. “You pack, we drive” services normally offer lower moving costs, and in return you do some of the work (the packing and loading).

How do movers charge?

There are a variety of ways that movers charge including shipment weight, truck size, crew size, or even mileage. If you’re moving long distance, the biggest factor will be your mileage. When movers charge by the mile, it can end up costing you extra money.

I’m moving long distance. What are the best moving companies for the job?

“You pack, we drive” moving companies rank high at the top of the list. I may be a little biased, but I wouldn’t say it if I didn’t wholeheartedly mean it. But to be fair, how about you be the judge. Here’s a helpful comparison of some of the leading types of long-distance moving companies.

You be the judge!

First are the traditional do-it-yourself moving companies, otherwise known as truck rental. I can definitely see why a lot of people moving long-distance are attracted to renting a truck and driving it themselves. The price usually starts out low. But add fuel, taxes, and damage protection and it starts to lose its appeal rather quickly.

What are you looking for in an out-of-state moving company?

Outside of truck rental, you basically have two options when it comes to moving out of state: full-service or “you pack, we drive” companies.

So, can you guess what customers tell us matters most when it comes to selecting the company they’ll go with?

You guessed it. PRICE. 

At the same time, people also want to know that their stuff is cared for and that the moving company will do what they say they’ll do. Unwanted surprises are never good. And that’s why so many people use social media and online reviews to read about and compare out-of-state moving companies before making a decision (which is smart).

If price is a main concern, and you have the ability to do some of the work on your own, the natural choice would be a “you pack, we drive” service like U-Pack.

I’m on a budget, so I’m looking for the most affordable moving companies.

You’re not alone, my friend. Most people moving to a new state are on a budget too, so finding an affordable moving company is top priority. I think you’ll find when you start researching and comparing your options, the “affordability” factor will lie with do-it-yourself moving companies rather than full-service movers. So that’s where we’ll focus in on.
