Trying to figure out an estimated cost of your upcoming move so that you can prepare your moving budget and start planning? I'd be glad to help you out! Your move from Amsterdam, NY to Lumberton, NC will cover roughly 775 miles, putting it squarely in the category of a long distance move. The main difference between long distance moves and local moves is that long distance moves are priced according to the total weight of your moving shipment, rather than by hour.
Now, while I'll be able to provide you with a range of prices that you can expect to pay for your move, I won't be able to pinpoint an exact cost because the total cost of your move will be dependent on several factors and pieces of information that you haven't made available in your question. For example, since long distance moves are priced based on the weight of your shipment, I'll need to know approximately how big your move is going to be.
Are you moving a three-bedroom house, a four-bedroom house or a two-bedroom apartment? Details are key when it comes to determining the price of the move. I'll also need to know what kind of moving services you were looking to avail. Do you need to transport your car as well? Will there be any stair carries or long carries involved in your move? Will you be moving any specialty items?
Although these details will be important in helping to determine a ballpark estimate for the cost of your move, I can still provide you with a range of costs that you could be looking at based on the information that I do have. For a 775-mile long distance move, you can expect to pay at least $2,100. That is the average standard cost for a move of that distance for a 1-2 bedroom apartment. However, as you increase the size of the shipment weight and add any additional packing services or moving insurance, the cost will increase. At the highest end of the cost spectrum is $11,200, which would be the average cost to move a 5-bedroom house along with moving insurance and packing services.
