What is considered a long-distance move in Boston?

Thumbtack Editors

The general threshold of a long-distance move is 100 or 400 miles, depending on the moving company. Moving from Boston to New York City might be considered long-distance because it’s a distance of 200-plus miles.

Moving to the following cities and states are generally considered long-distance moves if you live in Boston:

  • Moving to California 
  • Moving to Atlanta 
  • Moving to Seattle 
  • Moving to Texas
