What is the Long Distance Moving Companies’ Prices?

You’ll have some research to do before you find the right long distance moving company with the cheapest prices. It’s easiest to find the moving companies nearest you by using online resources. This will give you great insight on their reputation and services before you call in for a quote. Since you plan to relocate far away from your home now, make sure the movers specialize in long distance moves.

There are some optional services that are offered. These services make the move more convenient for you and lessen the amount of responsibilities on your plate.

For example, many movers will offer full service packing and insurance coverage during your move. Purchasing insurance is always very wise. Most movers will protect at least $0.60 per pound as stated by law. This helps protect your belongings during the move. If an accident happens or items are lost, the insurance company will have them repaired or replaced.

Full packing services are a wonderful service to take advantage of. The movers will come in and use the best packaging supplies to properly pack away everything to get it ready in time for moving day. A list of inventory will be made and all boxes will be labeled. They movers usually come in a few weeks before the moving date to start the packing process. Make sure the home is clean and ready for them to begin. They’ll pack away one room at a time, leaving all boxes in the room they were packed up in.

How the Movers Calculate the Cost of Moving

When the cost of your move is accurately calculated, the movers must take several things in to consideration including the current cost of fuel, the distance of travel, the services desired, the weight of your belongings, and other similar factors. To weigh your possessions, the movers first move the truck they plan to use. This is called the tare weight. Once all your items are loaded onto the truck, they’ll weigh it again to get the gross weight. They’ll then subtract the tare weight from the gross weight to get the net weight. The net weight is the exact weight of your belongings.

There are a lot of options for auto transport these days, which surprisingly makes it harder to find a good company. I received more than 10 offers to ship my car, but I couldn’t decide on any of them... Fortunately, I made the right choice with A1 Auto Transport.
