Why hire a moving company?
- Affordability: Moving companies are more affordable compared to a do-it-yourself (DIY) move. This is because they apply extra care to avoid damage of items and any injuries. They also have the advantage to handle huge volumes which enables them to reduce their costs of operation. They make long distance moves in a single trip using large trucks and sometimes combine loads moving in the same direction which results in a reduction of the total moving charge.
- Storage: When making a long distance move, you may need a place to store your items as you seek better housing. Moving companies have warehouses located across most cities in the state. They are well-equipped to hold all sorts of items and clients get to choose the storage options that suit them.
- Packing: Moving companies undertake packing regularly and know the different techniques to apply. They also come equipped with adequate and quality packing material to ensure safe and ideal packing of items. This saves you from all the hassle that packing is revered for.

Find the best mover in Ramsey
Get a directory of moving companies from the American Movers and Storage Association. It is the largest moving association in the country with over 3,500 members. They thoroughly check every moving company that wants to join the association. They should have:
- Zero pending violations.
- A satisfactory safety rating.
- Little or no consumer complaints.
- Professional moving training.
You can also look for moving companies in review websites such as Yelp. Simply type the word “moving companies” on the search bar and tens of options will appear. Opt for the company with positive reviews. Ensure all the reviews analyzed are logical since some customers may have an agenda against the company.
The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Association is mandated by the United States Department of Transport to regulate commercial vehicles in the country. This includes moving, storage, and vehicle shipping companies. Their main objectives are to promote road safety and to protect moving customers.
Ask for several cost estimates from different companies. Compare the rates charged, delivery windows and the types of services offered. A reliable moving company provides a 10% binding estimate with:
- An order of service
- Bill of lading
- A fixed delivery window
- Hidden costs
Simple steps for an easy move
- Understand the type of move you require. Read the `Your rights and responsibilities when you move’ booklet from the FMCSA to understand how long distance moves work and how to deal with moving companies.
- Give yourself at least 2-3 months to prepare for the long distance move. Long distance moves get complicated as the distance increases. You need adequate time to travel, acquaint yourself with the surroundings and recover.
- Determine your moving budget. Ask the company for the in-house estimate and learn the average prices of moving services. It also helps you reduce your expenses by getting rid of unnecessary items.
- Update your address weeks before moving out. Inform the Postal office and all other relevant parties.
- Cancel deliveries a week before moving out. It helps save unnecessary expenses. Remember to cancel any subscriptions and utilities that are in your name before moving out.
- Label all boxes when packing. Label them along the sides with your name, items and destination. Use the top and other remaining sides for special instructions such as `this side up.’
