An interstate move with Affordable Moving & Storage involves moving from State to State. We are conveniently located in Hickory, NC close to all major cities in NC. Whether you are moving to NC or moving out of NC, we can accommodate your move request within all 50 states.
Interstate moves are based on Interstate tariff rates that are calculated by weight and distance. With our owner having almost 20 years of moving experience in NC, Affordable Moving and Storage is equipped to handle all aspects of your interstate move from packing, unpacking, crating, temporary or permanent storage to just holding your contents on our trucks until you are ready to move in.
Since we pride ourselves as a “Dedicated Service Moving Company”, the same crew that packs and loads your belongings will be the same crew that unpacks and unloads your belongings. This means only one customer per job per crew and no splitting of loads.
