Three Options for Out of State Moves: From Least to Most Expensive
Option 1: Renting a Moving Truck
One of the most common and affordable ways to move out of state is by renting your own moving truck. Companies such as U-Haul and Penske offer moving trucks in a variety of sizes, and you can choose to drive the truck yourself and hire movers to pack, load and unload it for you. This option is often straightforward and cost-effective, especially if you are willing to do the driving yourself. However, it does require that you schedule movers at both your starting location and destination, which can take some coordination. As well as supply the necessary materials, so that we can make sure your load gets there safely.
Option 2: Using Freight Moving Companies
Another popular option for out of state moves is using freight moving companies such as an ABF trailer, U-Pack, or Old Dominion. These companies offer a “you-pack, we-drive” model, where you hire movers to pack your belongings into a freight semi-trailer and the company picks it up and drives it to your new location. This option is often more expensive than renting a moving truck but less expensive than hiring a full-service moving company. The benefit here is that you don't have to worry about driving your belongings yourself, and you can save tens of thousands of dollars compared to a full-service moving company, without doing any of the heavy lifting yourself.

Option 2: Full-Service Interstate Moving Companies
The most expensive option for out of state moves is hiring a full-service moving company to take care of everything for you. This includes packing, loading, driving, unloading, and unpacking your belongings. While this option can be convenient, it comes with a hefty price tag, often costing thousands of dollars. However, if you're short on time or you simply don't have the energy to manage the move yourself, a full-service moving company can take care of all the details and help relieve your stress. Bend Brothers Moving is happy to provide referrals for interstate movers, so that your move is protected with a reputable company who won't scam you on move day.
