Understanding Long-Distance Estimates

Our affordable rates and quality customer services make us the ideal choice for your long-distance moving needs. When you contact our office, we will send out a representative to assess which of our services you require. You show us what you want us to move. Tell us to where and on what date you’d the move to occur and together, you and our representative will create a custom home estimate for your upcoming move. Below, we have listed factors that may determine your final moving price:

  • Weight of your belongings. The amount of items you need to move will affect two things: (1) load & unload time and (2) the size truck required to move your belongings.
  • Distance between origin & destination. Mileage between point A and B may affect the final price of a full-service move.
  • Labor costs. Oftentimes, an hourly labor rate may be applied, but this can vary from state-to-state. Interstate moves generally include the cost of labor in their estimate.
  • Packing costs. If you require assistance unpacking and packing your items, moving companies will include the cost of packing services on the estimate, as well as the cost to assemble and/or disassemble any furniture.
  • Liability and coverage costs. Movers should include valuation coverage options for any damaged or lost items, including reimbursement options. Talk to your movers for more information regarding these plans.
  • Warehouse storage. If you need a moving company to temporarily store your belongings before, during or after your move, this cost will be factored into your final moving price. Storage rates will vary, so be sure to ask your mover about their rates before you decide.

How Do I Choose the Best Long-Distance Movers?

With numerous moving companies to choose from, we know the decision to move can be a bit overwhelming. Fortunately, with our informative checklist below, you can be sure that the moving company you choose is both reliable and credible enough to assist you with your next move:

  1. Get Referrals: It’s easy to Google “long distance movers near me”, but you’ll receive more accurate results if you ask your friends and family whom they used for the most recent move. Additionally, check out a moving company’s Google reviews for more insight.
  2. Red Flag Warnings: Most reputable moving companies won’t ask for cash advancements before your move. If the movers seem too money-hungry, they may not be the right ones for you. Be sure to research your movers and ensure they have the proper accreditation and certificates to move others.
  3. Fully Licensed & Insured: Verify your mover’s license through FMCA’s www.protectyourmove.gov and request their US DOT number. Ours is: 70719
  4. Agents Nationwide: As a Wheaton World Wide Moving agent, we give you access to over 400 agents nationwide. You can be sure you’re in good hands.

How Do I Know Which Movers are Trustworthy?

With how big the moving industry is, it can be pretty difficult to determine what is the best moving company for you. Here are some of the key things to look for when researching a moving company:

  • Badges: Look to see if they have any certifications or if they are accredited by the BBB. These will also show you if they have won any recent “excellent-service” awards.
  • Experience: It’s wise to avoid movers that are relatively new. Experience is key to a stress-free move. If you go on the company “about us” page, you will find their company history and other important facts about their moving processes.
  • Reviews: Online reviews have become a top source for researching moving companies. Check specifically for customer feedback and company responses because you can get a good determination of how a moving company runs their business based on these review interactions. Avoid moving companies that have a 4-star or less average rating on their Google Reviews, there is most likely a reason why those ratings are not higher than other reputable moving companies.
  • Family-Owned and Operated: This is always a big indicator to how you will be treated during your relocation. Not only will this help you avoid shady moving companies, but it will also help you avoid ones that are too big to truly care about your move.

The only way to know is to do expansive research. As you narrow down your list, look more and more into these aspects of the company to find the best one for you.
