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 Colorado Springs to Cincinnati will cover roughly 1,175 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.
Figuring out the cost of your move
While I'll be able to provide you with a range of prices that you can expect to pay for your move, I wo not 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 have not 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 1,100-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.

Finding a mover
To find some movers in your area that can assist you with your move, simply visit the front page of and fill out our free and easy-to-use quote form at the top of the page. You'll then be contacted by up to 7 moving companies that will provide you with a no-obligation estimate for your move.
Here are some moving tips to consider for next time as well:
  • Always try to plan your move as far in advance as possible. You'll find that you get the best results if you book your movers as soon as you make the decision to move, at least 2 to 3 months prior to when you plan on moving. Trying to book moving labor only a few days in advance will leave you with fewer options to choose from, so the earlier you get the ball rolling, the easier your move will be for you.
  • Compare quotes from at least three different moving companies. To get the best deal possible on your move, it's usually best to get estimates from at least three different movers before you make your choice. This will help you to compare the prices and the services offered by each company and will allow you to make the best decision for your move and your budget.
