Tariffs for Long Distance Moving Services

When performing any type of move, and especially a long-distance move, the price is always going to be a factor to consider. Here at Long Distance Moving Companies we do everything possible to keep our prices as low as we can to help make it easy for you to move. It is impossible to get an exact quote without discussing how much you need moved, where you need it moved to, and a variety of other factors. On this page, however, we can give you some general pricing points from which you can get a good idea of how much it will cost to complete your move. You can also give us a call at 732-504-6618 to get a free, no obligation, estimate for your specific move.

Prices for Packing and Unpacking

If you would like us to pack up your things and unpack them as well, we will be more than happy to do this. Our team has access to high quality boxes and other shipping supplies. Our packing and unpacking services are charged by the hour, and you can see the hourly prices listed below. If you decide you want to do your own packing, we can also supply you with high quality shipping supplies to help ensure everything is safe throughout the move. These items can be purchased from us, and we can even deliver them right to your door. Delivery of packing materials costs $30 when it is within 20 miles of our offices.

Price Per Man Per Hour

Whether helping with packing, moving, driving, or performing any other work related to your move, we charge specific prices per hour for each person. The hourly rate is based primarily on the time of day and the day of the week that the work is being done, and is broken down as follows:

  • Regular Hours Worked – All regular hours, which are from 8AM-7PM Monday – Saturday are charged at $30 per hour.
  • Overtime Hours – All overtime hours, which are from 7PM-8AM Monday – Saturday are charged at $40 per hour.
  • Sunday & Holiday Hours – All Sunday & Holiday hours worked are charged at a rate of $50 per hour. Contact us for a full list of holidays.

Travel Time Charges

The charges for the time our movers are driving are calculated based on how many miles they need to travel. The initial charges are as follows:

  • 3-10 miles are charged at a rate of .5 hours.
  • 11-20 miles are charged at a rate of 1 hour.
  • 21-30 miles are charged at a rate of 1.5 hours.
  • 31-50 miles are charged at a rate of 2.5 hours.
  • Any travel time above 100 miles is charged at a rate of .5 hours per 20 miles.

Other Charges & Fees

Any other fees or charges will be explained to you before they are incurred. Things like tolls that may be charged for taking toll roads, for example. Our movers are trained to try to keep the total costs as low as possible, and will always work with you to help ensure you aren’t overpaying. For making payments, we accept cash, money order, certified check, and credit card. If you choose to pay with a visa or MasterCard, there is a 2% service fee. If you choose to pay with American Express or Discover, there is a 5% service fee. Contact us at 732-504-6618 with any questions or to get an estimate for your move.
