Moving is expensive. I wonder how much it will cost to move 1 bedroom full of furniture from NY to Baltimore?

Get a uHaul and buy some friends some pizza and beer for their help.

We just moved from Raleigh, NC to Portland, OR. Our move was just under $11,000 for a 3 bedroom, 2100 sq ft home with a 8 x 10 shed that was pretty well stuffed with tools, etc. It figured out to be $1.00 a pound. We were told if we could wait until the end of August it would be cheaper, but we didn't want to wait. We used United, and have done so for our last 3 moves. The other 2 times we were relocated by the companies my husband was going to work for and they coordinated and paid for most everything including packing. This time around it was all on us, and we packed everything except our TV, a couple guitars, a mirror and some large oil paintings. Had to arrange transport of 2 cars as well to the tune of almost $3,000. Needless to say, this has been an expensive move!

Good job Mike.....

Just one suggestion.

The OP inquired six years ago, so is not likely to be a good candidate for your sales pitch.

Bravo for your effort. Find 'em where you can. I like your enthusiasm.

Default Need an estimate!!

You are going to have to talk to someone and if you do it right you will want to talk with at least 3 moving companies. I recommend have three companies do in home estimates all in one day with 2 hours allotted for each company. Make sure you know what your taking because the estimate is based on weight for out of state moves. A general rule of thumb is a 1,000 lbs per room. At Excel Carrier we recommend that you access the pamphlet Your Rights and Responsibilities When You Move you will be better informed and ready to get the needed estimates.

Your sales pitch is a dead link.

For what its worth, anyone monitoring this old thread, Your estimator(s) are required by law to provide you with a physical copy of "Your Rights and Responsibilities When You Move". Definitely do get a few estimates - but don't base your judgement alone on costs. The Bigger Van Lines cost more because they have a much larger network of resources.

Stay away from Brokers, because if and when something screws up on your move, You'll have a difficult time finding out who you're supposed to be yelling at. Working with a Van Line, Your Estimator is also your move coordinator. They'll be with you from beginning to end.
