When researching moving companies, you will usually find the most cost effective way to move your possessions out of state is to get a large national company to do the move for you.
Larger moving companies may have cheaper prices because they usually combine moves by putting a few loads on the same truck. The more loads on the truck the more people to help absorb the cost of fuel and travel time.
The downside of using a larger moving company to transport your items long distance is that since there are several loads on the same truck, delivery to your new location may take up to a month in travel time, and some items may get mixed up with other loads, so mark your boxes properly.
