The first step for any successful move, the new guide explains, is advance planning.

The information will be shared with 7 of the top companies in the local area, so they can estimate the cost, provide additional details, or offer suggestions to optimize the process.
While individual results will vary, the report suggests that by booking a move up to 6 months in advance, users can often reduce their rates by up to 25%. Scheduling in advance also offers several other benefits, such as allowing users to sell any unwanted items in a garage sale, rather than paying to have them relocated.
The report also covers several other steps users can take in advance, to limit the amount of work needed on the day of the move, and to eliminate additional fees. These include methods for collecting boxes and packing materials, strategies for efficient packing, and steps that can be taken in advance to simplify any potential insurance claims.
Though professional movers are recommended for most clients, the report also suggests several ways that individuals can reduce their rates by completing more of the work themselves. These include options for truck rentals, portable storage units, and moving certain items in advance.
A spokesperson for Movers.com explained, “How much does it cost to move long distance? The average price can be anywhere from $1,500 to $10,000 — depending on the size of your home, amount of belongings, distance of your move, and method you choose.”
