What is considered a long-distance move in Houston?

Thumbtack Editors

A long-distance move is generally a move of a least 100 miles, though some companies may classify long-distance moves as 400 miles or more.

Many out-of-state moves are considered long-distance moves, but it’s possible to move long-distance within one state — especially Texas because of its size. Some examples of long-distance moves from Houston are: 

  • Moving from Houston to Dallas
  • Moving from Houston to Austin
  • Moving from Houston to San Antonio

Moving to popular, out-of-state cities like Chicago, Seattle, Atlanta, New York and Denver are also considered long-distance moves.

For more information about what qualifies as a long-distance move, contact the top movers in Houston.
