Comparing moving company prices
One of the easiest ways to compare moving service rates is to compare prices from real moving companies. To get an idea of how much a long-distance move can cost, take a look at a 1,850-mile move from Pittsburgh, PA to Salt Lake City, UT. Prices are based on the space or equipment each company recommends for a three-bedroom home.

State to state movers
Since the completion of the Interstate Highway System, crossing state lines hasn’t seemed like a big deal. We pass through as many states as possible on road trips and visit spots like the Four Corners area of Utah, Arizona, New Mexico and Colorado so we can stand in four states at once. But when it comes to moving cross country, crossing state lines can be a big deal. There’s a lot to consider before packing up and moving long distance like what interstate moving company you should use and how to know if they’re qualified. It’s a good idea to research different state to state movers to find the best fit for your move.
