Hi, thanks for visiting Movers.com! If you're looking for a reliable mover to handle your move from Baldwin, PA to Las Vegas, NV, then you've definitely come to the right place. The move that you describe would cover roughly 2,100 miles, which will classify it as a long distance move. By definition, a long distance move is any move that covers more than 100 total miles. Since your move will be classified as a long distance one, your moving costs will be dependent on the weight of your shipment and you will not be charged per hour, as you would for a local move.

Also, you have approximately 50 boxes to move, which would also suggest that your move will be around the same size as a typical 3-4 bedroom move, just judging by the amount of moving boxes you have. The total weight of your moving shipment will likely be around 10,000 pounds. While you may very well have more items to move than the standard 10,000-pound average for a three-bedroom house, or you may have fewer items to move, this number is an average weight and is only being used to estimate your total costs. For a 10,000-pound shipment being moved around 300 miles, the average cost breaks down to around $3,000 at the low end for a standard move without any extra services added.

As you add additional things like packing services and moving insurance, your move will get more expensive. For example, adding packing services to your move will add roughly another $500-600 to your total costs and adding moving insurance will add another $100-200. At the high end of the cost spectrum would be a complete full-service move, which includes everything from packing and loading to unpacking and unloading, along with moving insurance, and will likely set you back anywhere from $4,000-$5,000.
