    Hey Sue, when contacting your long distance movers, ask for in-house cost estimate. Mind that for long distance moves, moving companies charge per lbs.

    Hi Sue! For a long distance moving like from Chicago to Boston you can expect to pay on an average about $8600 for moving a 3 bedroom house. Good luck with your moving!
