Household Moving & Shipping Options

If you are moving household goods long distance or need faster delivery, our Full Service Expedited shipping service is often the best option. If you are only shipping a small load (such as a few pieces of furniture) our shipping experts may recommend the White Glove Consolidated moving service. To ship packed boxes only (no furniture), our Box-And-Ship program may be the most cost-effective choice. The exact cost of your household move will depend on the size and number of items you’re shipping, the distance they will travel, and any special considerations such as glass or delicate components.

Household Shipping and Moving FAQs

How far in advance should I schedule movers?

Household moves should be scheduled as far in advance as possible—ideally at least 2 months in advance to secure a moving truck and a lower rate. Some household movers and shippers will be able to accommodate shorter timelines if needed, though additional fees may apply. Remember that the busy season for movers is typically May - September, so availability can be more limited. Companies like TSI with access to multiple carriers nationally do not usually have those limitations.

How much does it cost to move to a 3 bedroom house?

It can cost between $800-$8,000 to move a 3-bedroom house. The exact cost of moving a 3-bedroom house depends on how far you are moving, how much stuff you have to move, and what kind of mover you work with.

Will a moving company move one piece of furniture?

Not many companies will move one or few pieces of furniture. TSI is one of the few small load movers with a national presence and specializes in moves that do not require a full truck. Some household movers will not move a single piece of furniture locally, but there may be specialized single-item movers in your area if you’re moving a single piece of furniture within the same city.

What is the best moving company for long distance moves?

The best moving company for long distance moves ultimately depends on your budget and timeline, your physical ability, and the amount of stuff you have to move. 

For small load long distance moves, the best option is to work with a company like TSI that has options for consolidated shipping. Large van lines typically have weight minimums that only make sense if you are moving a whole home. Professional cross-country household movers and shippers like TSI will prepare and load furniture and may offer packing services for boxes. TSI offers extra services such as on-site crating (if needed) and can even help you pack, organize and declutter, and more. Request a household moving and shipping quote to learn more.

I found TSI on-line and read the reviews, which were positive. That is why I decided to send my favorite piece of furniture from Indiana to California. We were totally satisfied and Transit Systems lived up to its reputation.
