Interstate Moving FAQs

What is an interstate move?

An interstate move is when you move from one state to another. It is regulated primarily by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA).

How much does an interstate move cost?

The best way to find out how much to budget for your interstate move is to get a quote. That’s because a lot of factors go into how much a move will cost. How much of the packing you opt to do yourself, whether you need storage, and how many other services you need -- all these and more go into moving quotes. North American offers everything from fragile-only packing to full service packing, as well as the best packing materials so you can do your own packing if you choose. With lots of interstate moving services and options to choose from, you can tailor your move to your budget and needs.

How long can I expect my interstate move to take?

Like the cost of your interstate move, the duration can also vary. Generally, though, it will take 2-5 business days to move your household belongings across the country.

Are your interstate moving services available anywhere in the country?

Yes! Not only do we have moving agents throughout the U.S. who can help with your interstate move, but we also work with trusted third parties when necessary. You’ll always have local movers to help you with the process of an interstate relocation when you choose North American.

Why is North American Van Lines the Only Choice for Interstate Moving?

What are the cheapest ways to move between states?

5 Tips for a Successful Interstate Move

Choosing the moving company and services you want to use for your interstate move is just part of the picture. To make your move go more smoothly, use these tips:

    • Declutter. It costs money to move things, so cut down on the number of things that need moving! Donate or sell items you no longer use, and consider using Craigslist for furniture and other large items you don’t want to take. This tip not only lowers your cost of moving, but might make you some cash that will come in handy during your interstate move.
    • Itemize and organize. About 6-8 weeks before your interstate relocation, go ahead and pack up items you won’t need until after the move -- such as photo albums, off-season clothes, books and decorative items. Label each box well with the room and contents. This activity will give you a better idea of which additional packing boxes and materials you’ll need, so go ahead and order them at this point.

  • Prepare for your new home and clean the old one. Four weeks or so before moving day, arrange to have the utilities and cable turned off at your old home and turned on at your new home. If you rent, do some deep cleaning as you pack so you have your best chance at getting your deposit back.
  • Close accounts, transfer mail and service the car. A week or two before moving day is a good time to cancel your local gym membership and other local accounts and memberships. You can also go ahead and fill out the mail forwarding form at the post office or online. And if you’ll be driving your car during your interstate move, be sure it’s ready by getting it serviced and checked.
  • Pack valuables and necessary items for the move. If an item is small, fragile or very valuable, we recommend that you transport it to your new home. Pack your jewelry and antiques and plan to take them in the car with you if possible, as well as suitcases packed with what your family will need while on the road.

An interstate move is no time to leave tasks until the last minute, and these tips will help you prepare for your move in a more manageable and systematic way. Need more help? Our Moving Resources page offers many checklists, how-to’s and more that can make your interstate move -- or any move -- much less stressful.

How to Pick an Interstate Moving Company

Moving across state lines can be stressful, but choosing the right interstate moving company makes all the difference. Here are some tips to make sure you pick the best interstate mover for your needs.

  1. Ask for References

    Before hiring interstate movers, ask for references. Check reviews online and call around to find out what past customers think of the service.

  2. Do Research

    Check out reviews online and call local moving companies to learn about customer experiences. Look for things like cleanliness, punctuality, professionalism, and overall value.

  3. Consider Insurance

    Ask your interstate mover for proof of insurance before signing a contract. You may also want to look into auto liability coverage.

  4. Be Aware of Hidden Costs

    Make sure you understand all costs involved in your move. Don't sign a contract until you know everything included in the price.

  5. Know What to Expect

    Know what type of packing materials your interstate mover uses and what kind of equipment they use to pack items. Also, be prepared for delays during peak times.
