Moving out of State movers
Moving out of state on a tight budget can seem overwhelming…impossible even! I know how it goes…believe me. Lucky for you I happen to have a lot of experience moving people state-to-state and I continually update this post to help people just like you everyday! You are not alone and this will not be the end of the world (unless the aliens are landing)! This post will show you the cheap ways to move out of state along with the information you need to make your decision. Learn the pros and cons associated with each moving method and rest easy knowing you are making the right choice for your budget.
Your First Step Is To Downsize As Much As Possible!
Before you decide how you are going to move, you need to decide what you are going to move. It should come as no surprise that the more stuff you need to move, the higher the cost is going to be to get it done. Remember that almost all of your moving costs, no matter the method, will be determined based on the size and distance of your move. Since you don’t have control over the distance, you will need to take as much control over the size as possible in order to make your move cheaper.
If you are not attached to your bulky furniture, large electronics, etc and can manage to fit your move into a few boxes, you can open up out of state moving options that will cost less than 0! (See Bus/Train section below for more information about moving with no furniture)
Next Step Is To Get Free Out Of State Moving Quotes

Sometimes one of these companies will be running a special or discount that simply blows the rest out of the water and leaves you with a deal that is too good to pass up. On rare occasions users have reported finding out of state movers for as low as $500!
While deals that good don’t happen all the time, they do happen! At the very least, by getting your free quotes, you will know the price you have to beat when choosing other ways to move. Don’t let a golden opportunity potentially pass you by because you didn’t take 30 seconds of your time to check for deals….for free!
Choosing The Cheapest Out-Of-State Moving Option
What’s the best and cheapest way to move out of state?
Well the answer to that question all depends on perspective. Every method of out of state transport has its pros and cons. After you have your free moving quotes, you will have a bottom-line price to beat by other methods. For example, if the cheapest moving quote you received was 9, then you will use that figure to compare to the moving methods listed below (along with associated costs) to figure out what will be cheaper. Next I will break down these alternative moving options for you.
Rental Truck or Trailer
This is the usually the cheapest way to move furniture out of state. That being said, it is also the most exhausting and accident-prone way of moving your valuable furniture and bulky possessions.. If you have a lot of furniture and belongings to move and you don’t have the money to hire state to state movers, then this is probably going to be your cheapest option. My personal recommendation and favorite of the 3 is Budget due to their cheap truck rental rates, discount specials, nationwide locations, and quality. All 3 moving truck rental companies are highly trusted though!
Portable Moving Containers / “You Pack, They Drive”
This is an amazing way to move nowadays. If you are willing to do the heavy lifting, packing, and loading but don’t want to drive everything out of state yourself, then this is the cheapest way to do it! Basically a company will drop off a portable moving container to your address and you will load it up. They will come pick it up and drop it off at your new home on the date you specify. If you have an extra small load you can share a container with someone else for even more savings. I recommend U-Pack out of the companies below due to their amazing USA state coverage, cheap prices (often comparable to rental trucks), and well-established roots in the business.
