What Is an Atlanta Long Distance Move?
The most general definition of a long-distance move in Atlanta is a relocation of more than 50-100 miles. It can also refer to even a short-distance move over state lines. You’ll see a few common terms used to describe these moves that vary slightly in meaning. An interstate move is a relocation that crosses state lines. Cross country moving companies in Atlanta handle moves across several state lines. If your relocation will take you over state lines, even if you’re only moving 10 miles, you’ll need a moving company capable of performing interstate moves.
What’s prompting your need to hire a long distance moving company in Atlanta? Interstate moves are often done for family-related reasons. You may be ready to start your own household, maybe you’ve had a change in marital status, or you’re relocating to be near your family. Many households undergo a long-distance move for employment. Perhaps you’ve been transferred to a new city, received a job offer, or have finally retired.
Our Atlanta interstate movers also serve families who are moving for housing reasons. Maybe you’re leaving the city for more affordable housing, better amenities, or to buy your first home? Maybe you’ve been accepted to school out of state or you just want a different climate!
No matter your reason for moving, Wirks Moving & Storage is proud to be one of the best interstate moving and storage companies in Atlanta.

Atlanta Long Distance Moving Quotes | How Much Do Atlanta Long Distance Movers Cost?
Want some help with your long-distance move without breaking the budget? Interstate moving costs in Atlanta aren’t as high as you may think! There are many factors that affect cross country movers rates so understanding these factors can help you figure out how to move interstate on a budget.
You can’t control all of the factors affecting rates with Atlanta long distance moving companies, such as the distance or season, but many factors are within your control. Changing your moving dates slightly, donating or selling items before your move, or changing the level of service you receive can all reduce your moving cost.
The following are the biggest factors that affect Atlanta interstate moving company rates:
- Moving dates. Weekends are usually more expensive than weekday moves.
- Weight or volume of belongings. Long-distance movers in Atlanta consider the weight of your belongings to create a flat-rate cost.
- Level of service. Do you need specialty item moving? Packing services? Appliance disconnection?
- Storage. Choosing an interstate moving company with storage options is more affordable than opting for self-storage separately, but storage will increase your cost.
