What is considered a long-distance move in San Francisco?

A long-distance move is generally a move that’s more than 100 or 400 miles, depending on the moving company. Based on these thresholds, the following moves are often considered long-distance:

  • Moving from San Francisco to New York 
  • Moving from San Francisco to Seattle 
  • Moving from San Francisco to Denver
  • Moving from San Francisco to Portland 

If you’re moving within California, some moves may be considered long-distance or local. For example, moving from San Francisco to Los Angeles (a distance of about 380 miles) may be considered a long-distance move, and moving from San Francisco to Sacramento (a distance of about 90 miles) will likely be considered a local move.
