How Much Does it Cost to Hire Long Distance Movers in Gainesville?

A Gainesville long distance move will set you back between $1,000 and $7,000. We’ve seen some moves that are cheaper, and some moves that are more expensive, but that $1,000 and $7,000 window covers the majority.

Moves can steeply fluctuate in price. There are a lot of different factors at play, depending on what level of service you need, the time of year, and even the price of boxes. But, the most important factors behind the price of your long distance move are distance and volume.

Distance makes a huge difference when you’re shopping for moving quotes. More miles means more dollars and cents. Unfortunately, you can’t do much about the space between your origin and destination. Fortunately, you can do something about how much you’re hauling.

We always recommend downsizing as much as possible if you want to save big on your long distance move. Get rid of all your old and unwanted stuff, and it’ll really pay off when your Gainesville movers math out the overall volume (or weight) of your move.

Distance1 Bedroom2 – 3 Bedroom4 – 5 Bedroom
100 miles$1000 – $1500$1550 – $2000$2100 – $2500
250 miles$1600 – $2000$2100 – $2500$2600 – $3000
1000 miles+$2800 – $3000$3100 – $3500$3600 – $7000
2500 miles+$3100 – $3500$3600 – $4500$7000+

Gainesville Long Distance Moving FAQs

The biggest factors behind the price of your long distance move are the distance you’re traveling, and the amount of stuff you’re hauling. Aside from miles and pounds/cubic feet, some of the other major factors include:

  • Packing services: Paying for packing means a higher price, but it’s definitely worth it for the stress factor alone.
  • Full value insurance: The bare minimum insurance only provides $0.60 per pound of items lost or damaged. If you want full value coverage, you’ll have to pay extra.
  • Access fees: Long hallways, elevators, extra flights of stairs, the list goes on. Every challenge for your moving team can net an extra fee.
  • Gratuities: These aren’t usually included in your quote, but you should include it in your budget. 15% – 20% of your total price, to be divided between your whole moving team.

The cheapest option for a long distance move is always the DIY option, but only at first glance. Unfortunately, if you have to rent a truck, pay for gas, and shell out extra for hotels along the way, your savings will dry up pretty quickly. And if you’re taking time off work to deal with your move, that’s paychecks right out of your wallet. Pro movers are worth the extra few bucks.

Anything under 100 miles and within the same state counts as a local move. Anything over 100 miles or across state lines counts as a long distance move. If your Gainesville movers are dealing with long distance moves, they need federal licensing and certifications. Look for a Department of Transportation (DOT) number and a Federal Motor Carrier Safety Association (FMCSA) number.

At Out of State Moving Companies, we try to be as transparent as possible when we send you your quote. We’ll base your estimate on the amount of stuff you’re transporting, and the distance you have to travel. Extra services such as packing and storage will net you extra fees, but those will all be clearly displayed on your quote.

Every city is different. Gainesville has plenty to see, including the Florida Museum of Natural History, the Florida Gators, ACTUAL Florida gators, and tons more. As for the move itself, we’ll give you some advice that applies to every city: Book early, avoid a summer move, downsize before you get your quote, and let the pros handle the heavy lifting.

We recommend booking your movers 2 – 3 months in advance. That’s MONTHS, not WEEKS. A long distance move is a long process, and you’ll have to deal with a lot of planning and prep.

If you give yourself a few months to get everything in order before moving day, that’s less stress on your end. Plus, you can snag some sweet discounts with flexible scheduling.

A long distance move will generally take between 2 and 21 days. Just like the price, there’s a number of factors at play when it comes to the overall duration. Under federal law, trucks can’t clock over 400 miles of interstate travel per day.

Additionally, it’s common for movers to combine smaller loads on the same truck so there’s no empty (read: wasted) space. It’s better for efficiency, but it does mean there’ll be delays for dropoffs and deliveries along the way.
