Best Alabama Long Distance & Interstate Moving Companies
The right moving company can reduce the time it takes to relocate. They’ll also relieve a lot of the stress whether you’re moving to a nearby state or cross country. To get the job done at a price you can afford, hiring a moving company is the best way. Trying to move the contents of an entire house or building on your own is much too difficult and not worth the stress. Hire local or out of state movers that you can trust. You’ll find their help invaluable.

How Much Will It Cost to Hire My Alabama Long Distance Movers?
The cost of moving is dependent on many varying factors. Fuel costs, the rates carried by the moving company, the services you choose, the distance to be traveled, and the weight of your possessions are some of the factors that will determine the cost of your relocation services. When you provide certain information to the mover, they will present you with a free estimate for their services.
A lot of moving companies will have an online calculator that will provide quick estimates for those looking for the most affordable moving services. To receive more honest estimates, it is best to call in. Never hire a mover with astronomical rates. The cost of professional moving services shouldn’t exceed your financial circumstances. Before hiring moving help, search the Internet and gather several quotes to compare from local movers.
Signing a Contract with an Alabama Mover
Before blindly signing a contract, make sure everything you require is included in the documentation.
- All services you want should be listed with the appropriate rates.
- Make sure all information is correct such as addresses and personal information including several phone numbers for the movers to reach you at.
- Make sure the small print accurately includes everything told to you by the professionals.
Before signing, check with your homeowners’ insurance policy to see if your possessions are covered during the relocation. If not, make sure the moving company carriers insurance and that is mentioned in the contract. Your belongings should always be protected for their full value during a local, coast to coast, or international move. The distance or type of move has no bearing on whether or not you have insurance coverage.
Your Responsibility during Relocation
Although the Alabama movers will take care of most the labor, there may be some things left to your responsibility. Taking some responsibilities into your own hands only assures a smoother relocation.
- Have all boxes packed properly and clearly labeled by room. Never stack all boxes in one area. Leave them in the rooms they were packed up in for the movers to grab on moving day.
- Take all valuables such as jewelry with you instead packing it up for the movers to take with them.
- To cut cost and time, pack all less valuable items on your own. These items may include clothes, linens, knickknacks, etc.
- Create an inventory list. Count all boxes and pieces of furniture before the movers load them up. Most moving companies will create their own list of inventory too. Get a copy for your records.
The moving company is also held liable for the move. They must provide adequate insurance coverage, including motor vehicle coverage if necessary. The movers by law are required to protect every item at a rate no less than $.60 per pound.
