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

Long distance movers in Sacramento will cost you anywhere from $800 to $15,000, but we’ve seen the odd move that was a little cheaper or pricier. It all comes down to how far you’re traveling, and how much you have to transport.

When long distance movers do the math, they always look at your distance and volume. The distance is usually in miles, and the volume can be either pounds or cubic feet. While you can’t change the distance between two places, you can save big by cutting down on all your stuff.

Aside from stress-free moving, we’re all about transparency. You’ll need a quote to get an exact figure, but here are some ballpark estimates so you know what you’ll be getting into:

Distance1 Bedroom2 – 3 Bedroom4 – 5 Bedroom
100 miles$800 – $1000$1200 – $1800$2000 – $3000
250 miles$1000 – $1500$1800 – $2500$3000 – $3400
1000 miles+$2000 – $3000$3500 – $5000$6000 – $8000
2500 miles+$3500 – $5500$6000 – $8500$15000+


Sacramento Long Distance Moving FAQs

Aside from the distance and weight/volume of all your stuff, there are a few other factors that impact the cost of your move. Some of the more common are as follows:

  • Access fees: If your place has extra staircases, long hallways or driveways (over 75 feet) elevators, or any other kind of obstacle for your moving team, expect to pay a little extra. It’s a good idea to communicate ahead of time so there aren’t any unpleasant surprises.
  • Packing services: Packing services are a lifesaver, but they usually cost a little money – anywhere from a couple hundred to a couple thou, depending on how much stuff you have to move. Still, it’s the best way to make your move completely stress-free.
  • Storage fees: Storage gives you a lot of extra breathing room, but it also costs a bit of money. Be on the lookout for some sweet deals, since some moving companies will throw in a free month of storage.
  • Shuttles: This is region-specific, but some cities don’t let movers park their big semi trucks in the more built-up areas. Instead, your movers will have to park the main truck on the outskirts, and use a smaller shuttle truck to ferry your stuff back and forth.
  • Insurance: Movers are required to provide basic insurance, but it’s only good for $0.60 per pound of lost, damaged, or destroyed items. If you want to be extra safe – and you want to be paid the full value of your stuff – pay extra for full-value coverage.
The cheapest way to move long distances is to DIY, but it’s not as cheap as you’d expect. Sure, on paper, it’s a lower figure – but after you rent a truck, pay for gas, and shell out for food and lodging, your savings can dry up pretty quickly. And if you’re taking time off from work to do the packing, loading, and hauling… maybe you’ll be better off with the pros.

If you’re moving over 100 miles or across state lines, it counts as a long distance move. Anything under 100 miles (and within the same state) is a local move.Local movers charge per mover, per hour. On the other hand, long distance movers charge by the distance traveled, and the amount of stuff they have to transport.

It’s also worth mentioning that long distance movers need extra certification. Look for an FMCSA (Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration) and DOT (Department of Transportation) number to make sure they’re legit.

Downsize. Getting rid of all your old, unwanted, and unused stuff means you won’t have to unpack it again after your move, and it also means your long distance movers won’t have to include it in your estimate. Aside from trimming down the excess, it’s a good idea to book your move during a low-demand period: avoid scheduling a summer move at all costs.

We’re always growing, and we’re providing stress-free moves to more and more cities every day. Aside from you fine folks on the west coast (Sacramento, San Jose, Los Angeles, and San Diego), we’re also expanding our presence on the east coast. Look for us all over Florida, from Gainesville to Miami. Heck, we’re even taking care of moves in Las Vegas.

We recommend booking your Sacramento movers at least 2-3 months in advance. It may seem like a lot of time, but believe us – it takes a lot of time to get everything in order before the big day. Between tying up loose ends at work, transferring your utilities, and telling everyone you care about where they can find you next, you’ll be thankful for the long window.

As an added bonus, your movers may throw in a sweet discount for your flexibility if you schedule far enough in advance!

A long distance move will take anywhere from 2 to 21 days. Like the cost of your move, it really depends on how much stuff you’re carrying and how far you have to travel.

Under federal law, movers can’t clock more than 400 miles of interstate travel per day. But aside from rules and regulations, movers also need to steer clear of sending half-empty trucks all over the place. It’s inefficient, and wasted space is wasted money.

If you’ve got a small move – say, a studio or a one-bedroom apartment – your movers will bundle it in the same truck with several other moves. This cuts down on wasted space, but it means more delays for pickups and dropoffs along the way. (Don’t worry, they’ll still keep everything separated and secure.)
