Long distance Colorado moving companies

Finding the right moving company for your long distance relocation to or from Colorado will make a complex project proceed more smoothly. Planning a move is a big job, and finding a great vendor makes it manageable. Three Men and a Truck offers you some tips for identifying an excellent mover:

  1. Limit your candidates to those movers that register with FMCSA, as required by Department of Transportation regulations. You can check a mover’s registration status at the FMCSA site and review their safety record and any customer complaints.
  2. Meet the mover’s representative when they come to conduct a visual survey of your shipment and submit a written estimate. These steps, which the FMCSA regulations also require, will result in a more accurate forecast of the move’s cost. Written estimates include an explanation of the options for insurance coverage and a complete inventory of the items you are shipping. Make sure you check that the description of the condition of items on the list is correct.
  3. The estimate will also contain a list of additional charges you may encounter, such as long carries, stair charges, and waiting time due to parking constraints. Discuss these with the mover to be sure you clearly understand when they would apply to your move.

Long Distance Movers In Colorado

Local movers in Colorado

Local moving companies in Colorado aren’t subject to regulation by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration if the move is staying inside the state. That means it’s your responsibility to verify that the company you select for your job is qualified. You can start by getting referrals from friends or family (or a professional like your realtor or rental agent) and ask the mover for some recent customer references to validate their reliability. Ask the mover for documentation of their business license and insurance coverage as well.

How much will it cost to move to or from Colorado?

Estimating moving costs is best left to the movers. To determine your upcoming move price, ask for rate quotes from at least three reputable companies. Keep in mind that local projects will typically be less expensive and may be under $1,000 in many cases. Long distance relocation averages around $4,500 for a family but varies considerably according to the shipment size and length of the trip.

Frequently Asked Questions

What’s the Difference Between a Local and a Long-Distance move?

A relocation is classified as long-distance if it surpasses 100 miles. On the other hand, local moves cover a shorter distance, such as 100 or 50 miles.

What’s the best time to move in Aurora, Colorado, and how far ahead should I plan my move?

We recommend that you relocate to Aurora in the fall. This is the best time to visit because the weather will be pleasant.
Make sure you plan everything out a few months ahead of time. Also, the right time to book a moving firm depends on the type of move (2-4 weeks for local and 4-6 weeks for long-distance).

Is There Anything That a Moving Crew Won’t Accept to Load?

Pets, plants, chemicals, and combustibles are not allowed in our trucks. These items are prohibited to move according to the regulations by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration.

How Accurate Are Your Moving Estimates and Are They Considered Final?

After a phone or web consultation, we can assure you that our estimate is 90% accurate.
But keep in mind, that is just an estimate. You can get your final cost after we do a physical inspection at your place.
You would either receive the final estimate via email or personally from your moving manager.

Who Regulates Moving Companies in Aurora, Colorado, and Where Can I Verify a Movers’ License?

The Colorado Public Utilities Commission regulates intrastate movers in the state (PUC). To be able to transport home items, each mover must have a PUC permission number. The PUC advises consumers who are going to relocate to check with the PUC to ensure that the moving business they are considering employing is licensed in Colorado. You may check the PUC website to see if the moving business is licensed.

I Need to File a Complaint for My Last Moving Company. How Can Do That in Aurora, Colorado?

If a moving company defrauded you, make sure to document the incident. Once done, contact the PUC Transportation Safety and Compliance Unit. They can guide you on how to formally file a complaint against a moving company.

I Had an Emergency and Now I Need a Last-Minute Move. Is That Possible?

Yes. Moving firms with same-day move services can help you relocate anytime you want. However, keep in mind that availability is not always guaranteed.

What Documents Do I Need to Have on Me on the Day of the Move?

You need the written estimate, bill, insurance certificate, inventory list, and other documents provided by the moving company.
In some cases, you also need to present your personal documents, like IDs or passports. Some moving crews ask for them to verify the person they are working for.
To get all the information you need about the documents or anything about the moving process, make sure to contact your moving manager.

Can I Add or Remove Services Before the Move?

The moving company sometimes approves changes that are requested days or weeks before the actual move date. They can do it, especially if these are just minor adjustments. On the moving date, however, it’s impossible to ask for any changes because the crews are working on a timed schedule.

I Don’t Have Enough Boxes to Package Up My Belongings. Where Can I Find Moving Boxes in Aurora?

You can buy moving boxes in any retail establishment. But if you don’t want the hassle, we can provide the moving boxes for your stuff as part of our packing services.

Do I Have to Be Present During the Move or At the Destination?

No, it’s not always necessary because the moving manager can oversee and manage the whole moving process for you. However, it’s practical to be on-site because you’re going to sign a couple of papers from the moving firm.
The same thing applies to the destination of your items. You can let the moving manager handle the unpacking, but it’s better if you are present to ensure everything is in order.

I’m Not Ready to Move All My Items to the Destination Yet. Who Provides Storage Services in Aurora?

We can provide storage services. You can ask your moving manager to temporarily keep your belongings at our facility near Aurora if your new place is not ready yet.
