What to Expect When You Move From NY to LA

Moving from New York to Los Angeles is no small step. We understand this at Optimum Moving, and we do everything we can to make you feel comfortable and prepared. It all starts when you call us and speak to one of our knowledge team members.


We will send a consultant to your house to take inventory of your belongings and create a game plan. Our consultants want to make your move as easy as possible, so don’t hesitate to ask any questions. The real fun begins when you pick a moving date and we arrange for a safe, smooth, and fast pick-up. Of course, the move from NY to LA is a long journey, and that’s why we offer two long-distance shipping options.


The first option, LTL (less than a truckload) is the cheapest, but it doesn’t ensure your belongings show up quite as quickly. Our Guaranteed package is more expensive, but it ensures we will load a truck dedicated strictly to your belongings.


We want your belongings to get to your new LA home as quickly as possible. The delivery window we provide doesn’t include an ironclad day of arrival. However, we will stay in touch so there are no surprises.


On the pick-up day, our crew will protect your walls and floors as needed. We will also reserve the elevator if you live in a complex to make sure we can load the truck as efficiently as possible. Once we arrive in sunny LA, we will unload, unpack, and set up your belongings in the rooms you request. Now, you can unwind, get organized, and enjoy the next exciting chapter of your life.

Our Long Distance Moving Services

We love nothing more than to handle as much of your moving journey as possible. Our team will take care of all the heavy lifting, literally. Optimum Moving offers a wide range of services, and we will make sure we tailor your move to your every need.     


Full Packing and Unpacking

Nobody looks forward to packing their belongings for a long-distance move. That’s why we offer our Full Packing service, and it’s exactly as convenient as it sounds. With this package, we will pack all your belongings and unpack them when we get to your new home.


Our team will ask you for specific instructions to make sure each box gets unpacked in the right room. The price of the Full Packing service ultimately varies depending on the size of your home. Packing up a 3-bedroom typically runs $3,500 to $7,000.


However, it can cost as little as $1,500 to $3,000 to pack up a 1-bedroom apartment that doesn’t have a lot of furniture. We won’t leave you guessing, and we will provide a quote during the estimation.


Fragile Item Handling

Worrying about fragile items is the most nerve-wracking part of a long-distance move for many people. After all, the drive from New York to Los Angeles is over 40 hours long, so your items will stay packed up for quite a while. Luckily, we are no strangers to cross-coastal moves and our White Glove service exemplifies care and caution.


We will carefully pack your fragile items and load them onto the truck as if they’re our own. Between the foam, furniture pads, bubble wrap, and ratchet straps, your fragile items are in great hands.


Moving Insurance

Insurance is essential for long-distance moves, and that’s why we offer two options. Our Release Value liability is complimentary, and it covers $1 per pound for any damaged item. We also offer a Full Value Protection option that includes full compensation for item damage. Our team is skilled, trustworthy, and efficient, but the Full Value Protection plan is a great option to get some peace of mind.



Transportation is the most important part of the move from NY to LA. The Optimum Moving team has years of experience with the long journey, and it shows. We carefully route and plan the move to make it as smooth and efficient as possible. It’s more than simply driving your belongings; we pack, protect, and transport them carefully to avoid damage and get there on time.


Furniture and Trash Removal

It’s impossible to not accumulate some trash when moving. After all, we use lots of protective materials to pack and transport your belongings. Once we unpack, we will collect the trash and get rid of it for you so you don’t have to worry about it. We can also get rid of any old furniture you don’t want to bring from NY to LA.

How to Prepare for the Journey

Preparation is the key to success, and that’s especially true when moving. Everything you can do to get ready for the move will only save you stress and even money. Our team is here to encourage and help you get ready to start your new life in LA.


Research the Area

The first step of the exciting process is to research Los Angeles. Research neighborhoods in the city and suburbs to get the most comfortable and affordable home possible. Much like New York, Los Angeles is an expensive place to live, so it’s important to research the cost of living.


Contact local realtors who know the area and let them know what you’re looking for. Moving to LA from New York is a big adjustment, so it’s important to get the happy home you deserve.


Reach Out to Us

Reach out to us at Optimum Moving at least 2-3 months before moving. Once we get involved, one of our skilled consultants will go to your house and figure out what’s going to be best for you. We tailor the move to your needs, belongings, and budget.
