Top State To State Movers


Moving out of state is equally thrilling and nerve-wracking. On the one hand, you will begin a new chapter of your life and get an opportunity to meet new people, build new connections, and see the world from a different perspective. On the other hand, you have to leave behind your friends and colleagues and the place you called home for a long time.

And, as if moving out of state wasn’t hard enough, you also need to worry about transporting all your belongings to your destination.

If you’ve started planning your move, then you’ve probably realized that it’s better to let the professionals handle it for you. But, here’s the question: how do you find the best out-of-state moving companies?

Here are some tricks.

Ask for Referrals

Perhaps the easiest way to find a long-distance moving company that you can trust is to ask your friends, family, coworkers, or neighbors for recommendations. You can also use Facebook groups or forums to ask for recommendations. Be wary, however, of posts that seem to praise too much a company. If it sounds too good to be true, then it probably is.

Do Your Own Research

Now that you have a list with some of the best out of state moving companies, it’s time to start doing a bit of digging.

Use the American Moving & Storage Association’s ProMover program to see if the company you are considering is certified. Research the company on Google, Facebook, and directories like Angie’s List and read the reviews to see if other customers were satisfied with the services offered.

Make sure that the companies you are considering are licensed and legitimate. Interstate moving companies near you that travel across state lines must have a Department of Transportation number issued to them. You should be able to easily find this information on their website.

Contact a Few Moving Companies

By now, you should have a list of some professional interstate moving companies. The next step you should take is to schedule an appointment with each of them and ask for quotes for your out of state move.

If one or more companies claims that they can give you an accurate estimate without physically examining your belongings first, then that’s a major red flag. While it’s normal for moving companies to give you information about their rates via phone calls, a reputable mover will provide a quote only after walking through your home and making an inventory of the items you need to move.
