Interstate Movers

Posted in: I'm Moving, Long Distance Moving

An interstate move involves moving from state to state. When it comes to interstates moves, here is are a few things to remember.

Ask about forms of payment beforehand and what the moving company’s insurance covers. Ask how the cost is calculated. Look into who you are hiring and make sure you are getting a company that meets your needs.

Here are just a few to choose from:
Mayflower– Moving families local and long distance for over 75 years.
Allied Van Lines– Allied is set up to be able to handle small or large moves.
Atlas Van Lines– North America’s second largest household goods mover.
Bekins– Over 600 trucks ready for any move.
North American Van Lines– Over 75 years of experience and an array of services from packing to storage.
United Van Lines– America’s #1 moving company

If you just decide to rent the truck yourself, make sure to rent your truck at a location that allows for one-way moves, so that you can return it at your new destination. You can hire a local company at your starting location to load it for you and then hire a different company at your destination to unload it for you. Alternatives to renting a truck include Portable On Demand Storage (PODS), Movex interstate trucking, or ABF U-Pack. With these options, you can have your items delivered to your new destination without having to worry about driving a large rental truck across country. And then, all you have to do is hire movers to load and unload it when the truck/container arrives at your door.

Interstate moves may require a bit more research and planning. As you can see, there are a lot of interstate movers to choose from. You may want to get a couple price quotes from different companies so you can compare which rates are best. Check out information about the company you are hiring and ask questions ahead of time so there are no surprises on your moving date.
