The right moving company can take a stressful and time-consuming process and turn it into one that is enjoyable and relaxing. A long distance move can be both exciting and daunting all at the same time. If you’re feeling overwhelmed and/or need a little help, a long distance mover can help get you and your belongings from Point A to Point B without the frustration.
Of course we’re a little biased (ok a lot biased). But that doesn’t mean that we can’t help you find the right long-distance mover for you and your family. We hope it’s us, but if not, we want to make sure you choose the next best alternative.
Although not everyone needs a ‘full service’ moving package, if you do, you’ll want to ask the right questions to ensure your needs are met. Full-service distance movers take care of everything, from inventory and organizing belongings, to providing packaging and boxes, ensuring your items are carefully wrapped and protected for the move.
Local moving companies understand the area’s unique weather conditions as well as the optimal traveling routes in and out of the state. They also take greater pride in serving the community they also live and work in, and often offer better deals and service than an ‘out of town’ mover would.
You wouldn’t trust your belongings blindly to a stranger, would you? A little research goes a long way here. Ask about the company’s experience, employee training, insurance, and business license. You want a mover that knows what they’re doing, and that has a track record of getting the job done right.
Don’t be afraid to ask for references, and to dig a little deeper online to see what others are saying about the distance mover’s service. Read the good along with the bad and see what applies most to your situation.
Ideally, you’ll want to hire a long-distance mover with a solid performance record and lots of satisfied customers.
Anyone with a truck and some muscles can claim to be a ‘mover’. Do yourself a favor and hire those with proper safety equipment, moving equipment and trucks.
We’ve all heard the stories of contractors and movers asking for a big check upfront only to disappear like Houdini when it comes time to do the work. Most movers require a reasonable deposit to lock in your service and ensure movers, trucks and materials are set aside for your move date, but they shouldn’t be pressuring you for a 100% deposit upfront.
