Long-distance moves involve moving across state lines whereas local moves involve moving within a metro area within the same state. Additionally, an intrastate move involves moving within the same state, though, not always within the same metro area.
If you are in need of a long-distance mover, your search is over. As a licensed, carrier, Born to Move NYC offers long-distance moving services from coast to coast that you can trust. We strive to operate transparently to provide peace of mind to all clients regardless of the size of their move or the distance of their move.
The Cost of Moving From NYC
When you are searching for the right moving company to get your possessions from NYC to your next destination, one of the biggest considerations is cost. Depending on the weight of the move and the distance traveled, Born to Move NYC can provide you with a flat rate. The following are some examples of our starting rates for long-distance moves.
- NYC to New Hampshire - starting at $1,800
- NYC to Washington, D.C - starting at $2,000

- NYC to Denver, Colorado - starting at $8,000
- NYC to Austin, TX - starting at $9,000

The cost of your long-distance move can also vary based on the weight of items for your move. The more belongings you are moving, the more expensive the move is likely going to be.
Packing Costs for Long Distance Moving
Moving can be a stressful endeavor. Having a professional moving company pack your belongings may be considered a luxury to some but Born to Move NYC views our services as a necessity that can help individuals and families limit the amount of downtime spent on moving, so they can refocus their energy on acclimating the new home, school, and/or workplace.
Some competitors have elaborate charts and tables that break down the cost by item, per item, by flights of stairs, and packing materials available for purchase. Born to Move NYC wants to take the guesswork out of calculating your quote and provide a flat rate for your move. The best part is, packing materials are included in your flat rate.
As a general rule of thumb, consumers should be wary of lowball bids for their business. Lowball prices are generally a hassle in the long run. They may hook unsuspecting people into bait and switch schemes and may come with hidden fees.
How to Choose The Right Long-Distance Mover
Choosing the right moving company to help you uproot your life and safely deliver it in a brand new space can be daunting. To make sure your moving process is as smooth and possible, it is important to keep the following information in consideration.
Difference Between Movers and Brokers
Born to Move NYC is a full-service moving company, which means that we are an actual moving company. When you are planning a long-distance move, it is important to distinguish between brokers and carriers in the business. A moving broker does not handle any of the physical aspects of your move. The broker gets paid to broker the deal between you and a company that is actually moving your things. In a lot of cases, if anything is broken during the move the broker is actually not held liable and you may be stuck with additional expenses for your damages.
Moving Insurance for Your Valuables
Born to Move NYC makes it a priority to ensure that your property is insured for any accidents or damages (up to $10,000). This assurance is rolled into your flat rate for moving.
Born to Move also simplifies the process of insurance claims in the event of an accident or damage to your property. A qualified and reputable moving company will freely provide information, remediation, and/or compensation in the event of lost or damaged property.
You are already paying to move your items to your next destination. It would be counter-intuitive to have to shell out additional expenses to pay for damages or to replace your items. Before you choose your moving company, verify that they are insured.
Experienced and Compliant Movers
Apart from ensuring that your moving company is licensed, insured, and not a moving broker, you want to make sure that you choose a company experienced with moving long-distance.
Born to Move NYC adheres to various DOT orders and FMCSA regulations during the transportation of belongings. Moving companies need to operate appropriately for the FMCSA to grant authorizations to move long distances. If you have to move across state lines, we recommend working with a trusted moving company such as Born to Move so that you do not have to deal with the headache of paperwork or documentation.
Companies with experience moving people long-distance have the processes, systems, and technology in place to keep you in the loop throughout the process of your move.
