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

Your Jacksonville movers will cost you between $1,000 to $16,000 – sometimes more, and sometimes a little less. It’s a pretty big window, but the price of a long distance move really depends on how much you’re carrying, and far you’re going.

Long distance moving companies calculate your final price based on a number of different factors, but distance and volume are by far the most important. Moving a studio or one-bedroom apartment to Brunswick is going to be a lot cheaper than moving a five-bedroom McMansion all the way to Portland.

If you’re still on the fence about hiring movers, take a look at this chart to see how much you may end up spending:

Distance1 Bedroom2 – 3 Bedroom4 – 5 Bedroom
100 miles$1000 – $1500$1550 – $2000$2100 – $2500
250 miles$1600 – $2000$2100 – $4200$4500 – $6000
1000 miles+$2800 – $3000$2950 – $6500$4500 – $9000
2500 miles+$3500 – $7500$5000 – $8800$16000+

Jacksonville Long Distance Moving FAQs

The distance (in miles) and the amount of stuff being hauled (in pounds or cubic feet) are the two most important factors behind your final price, but there are a handful of other factors to keep in mind. Here are a few:

  • Packing and Extras: DIY packing is a huge pain, so hiring the pros to handle the whole process makes life a lot easier. Packing and other services (such as furniture disassembly, storage, etc.) all cost a bit of cash, but the benefits are worth it.
  • Insurance: Under federal law, movers have to provide a minimum level of insurance. Unfortunately, it’s only good for $0.60 per pound If you want to be reimbursed the full value of that laptop (instead of $2.40), you’ll have to pay extra for full value coverage.
  • Access Fees: Access fees apply to all those obstacles that come between your movers and your front door. If they need to deal with gates, long driveways, multiple flights of stairs, or elevators, you’ll be charged a little more for the extra hassle.
  • Shuttle Fees: Depending on the city, it might not be possible for your movers to park a giant semi truck on your street. Instead, they’ll have to park on the outskirts of town, and use a smaller truck to ferry stuff to and from your place. This costs money.
  • Gratuity: This isn’t included in your quote, but you should keep it in mind for moving day. Unless explicitly declined by your movers, tips are expected. 15% – 20% of the total cost of your move is a solid amount, to be divided up between all your movers.

The cheapest option for a long distance move is always going to be DIY, but is it really worth the savings? After paying for a truck rental, your gas, and food and lodging, you may be paying a lot more than you expected. And don’t forget those paychecks you’ll be missing if you have to take time off of work.

We’re not just saying this because we’re a moving company: Sometimes, it’s just easier and more efficient to hire the pros.

If you’re trying to save money on long distance movers, we recommend downsizing as much as possible. Less stuff to haul means a lower price tag – plus you won’t have to deal with unpacking all your old and unwanted items.

It’s also a good idea to try to book during a less-busy season. Summers are always the most popular for moving, as are any holiday weekends. If you’re flexible with your scheduling, you can save a load of dough.

There’s a ton of moving companies out there, but not so many of them offer custom moves. You’ll find you’ll often have to choose between moving plans that may not have everything you need – and the other guys won’t have that commitment to stress-free moving, either.

At Out of State Moving Companies, we really pride ourselves on our ability to take the stress out of moving day. Our team can handle every step of the operation, from planning to final furniture reassembly.

Combine it with our transparent pricing and à la carte services, and you can see what makes us unique in the moving industry.

A long distance move takes a lot of preparation, so we recommend booking your move between 2 and 3 months in advance. It may seem like a long time, but it’ll give you plenty of time to tie up loose ends before you move to your new place. As an added bonus, lots of moving companies offer some pretty sweet deals for flexible scheduling.

According to Zillow, the median home price in Jacksonville is about $300,000. However, you’ll probably have to pay a lot more than that if you want to live in a nice neighborhood. Jacksonville is getting a lot more expensive than it used to be, and more and more people are moving out to keep their cost of living down. Blame all those new Californians.

Long distance moves usually take between 1 and 21 days. Like your final price, this really depends on how far you’re going, and how much stuff you’re hauling. But unlike the final price, having less stuff may mean a longer wait.

Moving companies try to avoid sending half-empty trucks when they can avoid it. Instead, they’ll bundle several moves in the same truck or trailer (while keeping everything nice and separated, of course). This is better for efficiency, but you’ll have to wait longer while your movers deal with pickups and dropoffs along the way.
