Long Distance Moving
You’re moving over a 100 miles and staying in New York? Let’s make it a breeze!
Empire State Moving Company is a full-service moving and storage company, and we’d love to help you with your California intrastate move (moves within California greater than 100 miles). If you’re moving less than 100 miles within California, you need information on California Local Moves.
We’ll work with you to help determine your exact moving needs.
Want to move like a movie star? We’ve got it covered. Already a packing pro? We can simply send out our movers and a truck to move your boxes and furniture. How much we do is up to you.
Here are a few ways we can help you customize your move:
Experience red carpet service with our Packing and/or Unpacking Services.
Get the star treatment with our Luxury Packages.
Not enough room in the new place? Combining two homes? Have a time delay between homes? We offer long- and short-term Storage Options.
Can’t bear to move that porcelain dog figurine collection you have set up just right? We can move those puppies with our Picture Perfect Moving Service. We’ll take pictures of your current set-up and arrange the pups in the exact same manner.
The cost of a California intrastate move depends on the distance you are moving and the weight of your shipment. Here’s how it works: we will weigh the moving truck with and without your shipment fully loaded at a government regulated weigh station. The difference between those two weights is the weight of your shipment. Unless you’re a weight-guessing pro (and you always win those jelly beans-in-a-jar counting contests), you probably don’t know the exact total weight of your belongings.
Empire State Company is able to provide low rates because we do something called consolidated shipping. Instead of sending a giant moving truck across the state with only your belongings on board, we consolidate your shipment with other clients’ shipments. This method allows you to receive a greatly reduced rate.
Our client loyalty team can explain every little detail that goes into determining the cost of your move.
Here are a few factors that may affect your moving budget:
How far are you moving?
How much stuff are you moving?
Will you pack yourself or would you like us to pack for you?
Will you have accessorial charges? This is moving lingo for charges due to obstacles that keep the door of the truck away from the door of your new or old home. This includes things like flights of stairs, elevators, long carries and the need to use a small shuttle vehicle. All moving companies are going to charge you for this, whether they tell you or not. We like to tell you.
Do you need storage?
Will you choose any additional valuation? This is insurance lingo. If you do not have coverage, then we recommend purchasing a policy from a third-party insurance company. We can walk you through this process; just give us a call at (212) 281-4300 prior to your scheduled move.
