Why you should hire a moving company
Long distance moving expenses need to be controlled to prevent them from overrunning your budget. Moving companies plan for long distance moves months in advance. They consider all moving expenses such as:
- Packing, loading and transport charges
- Unforeseen circumstances
- Hidden costs
This is very efficient since it ensures the customer does not incur any additional expenses during the entire move.
Professional movers know how a move should proceed from beginning to end. They have dealt with different types of moves and the experience enables them to coordinate the entire move smoothly. They use professionally trained personnel and proper moving equipment to handle all the activities involved.
Time to handle other activities
You might have work related or personal activities that you need to attend to during the moving period. Movers are in a position to take care of all your moving tasks as you take care of your personal matters.

Steps to find a professional moving company
Ask for recommendations from friends and family who have moved in the past. You can also enquire from real estate agents since they deal with moving companies as part of their job. Note down their recommendations and conduct a rigorous research about the companies.
When looking for a moving company, check how previous customers rate the company. Customer reviews enable you to determine the level of services a mover provides. Reliable movers no doubt have positive reviews while substandard movers have regular consumer complaints. Avoid movers who do not bother responding to complaints.
Deal with moving companies who are members of the American Movers and Storage Association. They are put through strict background checks before being registered. They also have to undergo the Promover programme training to ensure they provide quality services.
Make sure that you deal with moving companies that are registered and licensed by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Association. State to state moving companies should have a USDOT number that allows them to handle household items.
Get a moving quote from the moving company and check it against templates from moving associations or government departments. A proper moving quote should be affordable, have insurance and a fixed delivery window.
Do not trust low moving quotes since some companies are known to use them to hook customers and later take them through a roller-coaster of additional expenses.
How to make a flawless move to Princeton
- Craft a moving plan. Note down what you need moved and when you should move. Make contact with an experienced mover at least two months to your moving date.
- Let the company send a representative to perform an in-house estimate. This helps you determine how much the move will cost and how to reduce your expenses.
- Downsize your load by selling items you no longer use. Keep in mind, the more you carry the higher the moving charge.
- Set up your change of address at the United States Postal Services at least three weeks before moving day.
- Cancel deliveries and subscriptions 2 weeks before moving out. Also, apply for utilities in your new house as soon as you sign the lease agreement.
- Start packing weeks ahead. Pack you items strategically moving room by room. Use boxes of a similar color to pack items from the same room. Label them along the sides with the contents and the room they are destined for.
- On moving day, be around until all your items have been loaded.
