Best Minnesota Long Distance & Interstate Moving Companies
Is there anything more frustrating than relocation? It is almost always a nightmare. Not only do you have to remember to transfer medical and school records, turn off the utilities, leave a forwarding address with the post office and all the other things that go into living in a new place, you also have to actually haul all of your stuff from one house to another. It can be a ton of work, and all but impossible to do by yourself. You can try and ask your friends to help you, but it always seems that they conveniently have something else to do. Don’t worry. You don’t have to do it alone. You could hire a professional moving company to help you. Whether it is across the country or across town, hiring a moving company can take a lot of stress out of the process (but you will still have to remember to call the utility companies on your own!)
Choosing Your Minnesota Long Distance Movers
Don’t just hire anyone to do your move. Make sure you are dealing with a reputable and trustworthy mover from Minnesota.
- How many years of experience does this company have: Don’t skimp on the experience. A company that has been around for a long time has seen it all. They know how to handle problems, and aren’t a fly by night operation that is going to load up your stuff and disappear.
- Are they registered with the Department of Transportation: The law states that interstate movers must be registered with the Federal government and have a U.S. DOT number. You should make sure that they are registered before doing business with them.
- Look for testimonials and reviews: The internet is a wonderful resource for determining the trustworthiness and professionalism of a company. Sites like YELP and Google reviews have made it easy to make sure a company has a reputation for excellence. Look closely for reviews that explain how problems were solved.
- Does the company have insurance for the entire value of your belongings: The law requires insurance to cover only $0.60 per pound. Some companies go further than that and provide insurance on the full replacement value or depreciated value of the items. You need to know which the company you are working with is offering.
- Additional services: What additional services does a moving company offer? Will they offer packing and unpacking services? How much do these add ons cost?
- Consider using a local company: This helps guarantee that you will be able to reach the company if there are any problems.

How Much Will It Cost To Hire My Minnesota Long Distance Movers?
There are a number of factors that can affect the cost of your move. It will obviously be cheaper to move from an efficiency apartment across town than it will be to move a house with 3 bedrooms worth of stuff to another state. Other things that can affect the cost are additional services like packing and unpacking, the cost of fuel, and if you are moving during a peak season.
Before Signing Away
- Ensure that any services you are using and their associated costs are included in the contract.
- Double check on the addresses listed. The last thing you want is for your belongings to end up at the wrong house due to a typo.
- Find out what the policy is on damages and lost items. Will the company cover replacement costs or only the minimum $0.60 per pound they are required to cover.
Things to Remember
- Don’t stack all boxes together in one area. Leave them in their individual rooms for the movers to pick up on moving day.
- Keep your jewelry and other valuable belongings with you.
- Request a copy of the mover’s inventory list for your records.
- Check your homeowner’s insurance policy. It may cover items damaged during a move as well.
