How much do moving containers cost for a long-distance move? So if you’re moving out of state or moving a long ways away, you want to plan your budget accordingly. Obviously, this also involves transporting your moving container from your first location to your destination. So how much will that cost you? First of all, let’s define what long distance means. So, long distance generally is considered to be for a distance of over 100 miles. For some companies, they will even consider it if it’s over 50 miles or if it’s between states. Then you’re talking about a long distance move as opposed to a local move. Obviously, when it comes to transportation, it always depends on the exact distance. So, depending on the amount of miles traveled, they will adjust the price accordingly. When it comes to a coast-to-coast move, you can expect to pay anywhere between $2 ,500 and $5 ,000 just for moving the container. No other services included at all. So, of course, if you want to use professional movers to help you pack or load, you can expect to pay around $1 ,500 to $2 ,500 extra bucks. So be prepared for that as well if you know you’re going to need some help. In conclusion, the price of long distance moves can really range very widely between one company to another. Obviously also depends on how much distance you’re traveling, the size of the container, and other things that might add up. So before booking a moving container, I really suggest that you shop around, check different companies, get different price quotes, and no less important, be sure that you check your reviews because it won’t help you to have a cheaper mover if they’re not going to treat your stuff with respect and deliver it as intended.
