Frequently Asked Question's (FAQ'S)

What's Considered A Long Distance Move?

A long distance move is generally a move that is over 400 miles away. This can include moves across state lines, as well as moves within the same state but a long distance apart.

Why is Long Distance Moving So Expensive?

Many factors determine the costs of your out-of-state movers in California. But there are ways to save money, and we have several solutions to keep your prices down.

Here are some reasons why moving from California is expensive, and tips you can use:

  • Company Brand: Every long distance moving company has different supply and demand, as well as their own rates. Just because one business is expensive does not mean other movers are.

  • Inventory: When determining your moving costs, note that haulers calculate your quote by the volume of your furniture. Consider downsizing a bit so that you save money on your shipment.

  • Distance: Moves going further distances, such as a coast to coast move, is more expensive. Consider a shared truckload with American National Movers to keep your costs below $6,000.

  • Packing Materials: state to state movers in California charge a lot of money for boxes and packing services. Consider doing some of the packing yourself to save money on labor.

  • High cost of living: The high cost of living in California also drives up the cost of moving. American National Movers commits to providing affordable moving services, even in this expensive state.

How to Save Money on Moving?

  • Pack yourself: As mentioned above, packing materials and services can be expensive. Save money by packing as much of your belongings as you can yourself. Just be sure to use high-quality packing materials and pack your belongings carefully to avoid damage.

  • Use a shared truckload: Shared truckloads are a great way to save money on your long distance move. American National Movers screens all its shared load partners carefully to ensure that your belongings will be safe and secure.

What are the cheapest ways to move out of California?

Here are three of the cheapest ways to move out of the West Coast:

  • Sharing a truck with another customer: This is the most affordable option for hiring movers when you have a limited budget.

  • Truck Rentals: This is another option if you're not interested in a shared truckload. However, the price for renting a U-Haul for a cross-country move is similar to the costs of sharing your load.

  • Negotiating with movers: You can try to negotiate with movers, especially during the off-season. Many times you can lower the cost of your long haul by $1,000 or more when you negotiate.

Why Are So Many People Moving From California to Texas?

California's state income tax and the high cost of living are the main factors of people relocating from CA to TX. The after-effect of COVID-19 has changed almost everyone's budget. While living in Cali is preferred, consumers are making sacrifices to save money.


  • California has the highest state income tax in the country, at 13.3%.

  • The median home price in California is $833,500, while the median home price in Texas is $326,100.
