Coast to Coast Moving
When a coast to coast move is in your near future, you may consider conducting the move on your own. However, this could end up being more expensive and more stressful than you could’ve ever imagined. By hiring a coast to coast or cross country mover, you can expect that they will do the manual labor involved in the moving process. They will bring the truck, the help and the right moving equipment. You can even take advantage of full service packaging so that you don’t have to worry about purchasing packing supplies and spending time trying to get everything packed away in time for moving day.
On the Day of the Cross Country Move…
If you’re not ready, moving day can become quite chaotic rather easily. Everything should be packed away securely in the right packaging materials. Each packed box should be clearly labeled and some of the furniture might have to be disassembled and wrapped in blankets for loading. The movers you hired should have all of the tools to disassemble and reassemble large furniture pieces for you. They are trained to handle large furniture such as sofas, pool tables, appliances and office equipment. The proper care of these items is essential in a coast to coast move.

Be sure that all entryways are free from any mess that may cause one of the movers to harm themselves or your belongings on the day they come to load the truck. Make sure that they also have somewhere close by the door of the home to park. This could be the street, driveway or other level ground. If the movers have to park in the street, it is your job to obtain a permit from the city before they arrive.
Some coast to coast moves require a transfer. This is when your belongings are moved from one truck to another truck somewhere along the route. You can ask if this is something you will go through and request that it doesn’t happen. However, most moving companies have satellite tracking services so their customers can keep track of their stuff. Insurance coverage is also there to help protect the value of your items if they come up missing or broken due to the relocation.
