Everyone knows that a long distance move can be stressful. However, many people are surprised to find out that the stress doesn’t start on move day…it starts trying to find the right long distance moving companies. With so many to choose from, many struggle to find one worthy of their business.
Fortunately, it is possible to pick the right long distance moving company. No matter how far away your new home is, keeping a few key tips in mind will allow you the insight you need to make a solid final choice that reduces stress, not enhances it.
When choosing long distance moving companies, look for:
Free Estimate – Reputable long distance moving companies will never charge for an initial estimate. Instead, a rep will contact you to discuss your schedule and pinpoint a convenient time for your consultation. The team will arrive prepared to evaluate the scope of the move as well as provide a written estimate of what the job will entail and (most importantly) cost.
Innovative Moving Plans – Leading long distance moving companies will never offer a one-size-fits-all moving solution. Instead, they will create an innovative plan customized to your specific move. The team will offer a wide range of services, including professionally packing your items. Additionally, they will map out the route they will take to get you from point A to point B as quickly as possible.
Storage & Delayed Delivery – Moving far away often means not knowing what you can and cannot bring with you right away. Some movers require everything be transported at the same time. However, quality movers will also offer services for storage and delayed delivery. Referred to as "container service" these businesses will carefully store your personal effects for you in your own container so they aren’t handled again until you are ready for them. Delayed delivery can have a set time limit, so be sure to ask your provider how long they will store your items for you.
