Average Cost of Moving Out of New Jersey
We pride ourselves on the cost transparency we offer. You’ll never have to guess how much you’ll spend with us. Costs vary based on how many pieces of furniture you’ll want to take and how far we haul it for you. To make it easy to understand, here are two ways we price jobs for customers moving out of New Jersey.
LTL (Less Than Truckload)
Here at Optimum Moving, we offer two options: LTL and Guaranteed. Most of the long-distance moves we make for our customers are LTL, and that’s the cheaper option because of cost-savings.
For example, an average 2-bedroom apartment move from NJ to FL can cost anywhere from $1,500 to $10,000. Keep in mind that some 2-bedroom apartments are scarcely furnished, whereas others can be packed to the gills with furniture belongings.
Understand that every move is unique, which is why we send a dedicated moving consultant to your home. This way, you don’t have to guess the cost, and our consultant will be able to give you a guaranteed flat rate, following the survey.
Guaranteed is the other option, and that’s where we send a dedicated truck just for you. Granted, this comes at an extra premium and can end up costing $10,000 or more for a move. However, we understand it may be required when you must be at your destination by a certain date. Our sales team can advise on the best options during the consultation process.
Also, keep in mind that moving scams have sadly become all too common in the past decade. That’s why we believe in absolute honesty with our customers. Not every moving company is as transparent with pricing.
Especially with long-distance moves, where some movers quote a low amount, only to add bogus and upcharges later. Here at Optimum, we work on a flat-rate, guaranteed pricing method, so you never have to worry about getting overcharged.

Moving is as exciting as it is stressful, but our comprehensive service alleviates stress from the start. We communicate every step of the way to give our customers a stress-free move. First, we send a skilled consultant to take inventory of your belongings and give you a thoughtful cost estimate. We then offer a flat rate that leaves nothing to the imagination.

Moving With Optimum Vs. Doing it Yourself
We wouldn’t have done as many long-distance moves as we have if moving by yourself was easy. Not only is moving by yourself difficult, but it’s also far from cost-effective. Unfortunately, you cannot avoid expensive rental and transportation costs when you move long-distance without help.
Moving truck rental companies charge quite a bit. They typically charge a minimum base price of $700-$2,100, and that’s just for the trip rate. This doesn’t include your cost for mileage, tolls, gas, boxes, dollies, and more.
Keep in mind that you may also have to spend a fortune on plane tickets. Your entire family won’t fit in the moving truck, so you’ll have to set aside money to make sure they get to your new home. We work hard to eliminate all this stress and provide an honest cost breakdown.
Your Insurance Coverage Options
We are committed to handling your belongings with care. That said, we understand that our customers are worried about their sentimental and valuable items. We couldn’t be more careful, but we still recommend you consider insurance coverage in case something happens.
The customer comes first, and that’s why each long-distance move comes with complimentary Release Value liability. This option covers $1 per pound for each item we move, but it doesn’t cover the market value. For example, we would compensate you $100 for a 100-pound item that gets damaged.
Full Value Protection is our second, more comprehensive plan. This plan isn’t free, but it covers the full market value of any item that is lost or damaged. We will reimburse you for the item or replace it depending on what it is and what you would like.
Tips to Prepare Before You Move Out of the Garden State
Preparation is the roadmap to success when you move out of the Garden State. Make a list of everything you must do and focus on one task at a time. We encourage you to research your new destination as much as possible so you can adapt quickly. Look up look schools, stores, restaurants, and medical providers to find the best fit for you.
It’s also a great idea to start organizing at least 2-3 months before you move. Research the cost of living at your new destination to create a budget that will give you some wiggle room. Start your job search as early as possible to slide into a career that will provide and make you happy.
You may also want to visit your new hometown a few times before you move. This will help you fall in love with your new town and provide useful insight. Next, simply reach out to Optimum Moving so we can be a part of your exciting life change.
