Long distance moving company in Connecticut
We know that you don’t want to take any risks and are looking for one of the best Connecticut moving companies for a long distance move.
Hiring a mover to support your long distance move to or from Connecticut is an important decision. However, it’s a big challenge to find the right mover for the job while staying within budget.
One great way to start is by reviewing information on the website set up by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, or FMCSA. That’s the agency that oversees interstate movers, including CT moving companies, and helps consumers avoid moving industry fraud.
They recommend the following precautions:
- Limit your search to Connecticut moving companies that register with FMCSA. This registration is required for any moving company working across state lines, and you can verify compliance on the FMCSA site. You can also review movers’ safety records and any customer complaints.
- Get written estimates of the entire moving process based on visual inspections of the entire home. Instead of a verbal offer, ask the movers to visit your home and see what you need to move before they provide a free quote, and then ask them to put it in writing.
Making it easier for you, Three Men And A Truck is among the best moving companies, serving moving families across the country. We offer stress free long distance moving and storage services at economical prices.
Since we are registered movers, we cover the entire state, no matter where you’re planning to relocate.
Local Connecticut movers
Choosing a local moving company for your local move in Connecticut requires some work on your part to verify that the company is qualified. While FMCSA regulates interstate movers, CT moving companies that operate exclusively within Connecticut don’t receive the same oversight level. It’s up to you to ask for their business license and proof of insurance.
You may want to request a copy of their corporate liability coverage, plus evidence of workers’ compensation protection. Also, consider asking for references. A good quality mover will gladly share contact information of some recent customers that you can ask about their experience.

How much Do Local Movers Charge in Connecticut?
The best way to determine the moving costs for your upcoming move is to obtain estimates from at least three reputable moving companies and compare them. Each move is different, but all are priced according to the shipment size and the move distance.
Local projects typically cost much less than long distance jobs. Adding services like packing and storage will increase the cost of any move.

Frequently Asked Questions
It depends on the mover’s definition of long-distance. For most professional movers, any move that is more than 100 miles is already considered long-distance. Moves that are out of state are also regarded as long-distance, even if the mileage is below 100 miles.
Yes. For local moves, we recommend planning it 2-4 weeks in advance, especially if you want to move on a weekend. For long-distance moves, we recommend you plan your move 4-6 weeks in advance. This ensures that you can book the moving date and time that is most convenient for you.
We get a general idea of how many items you have and how far away the destination is during the consultation call. However, any estimate given during the consultation call is just a general estimate. While some companies are experienced enough to provide an accurate first estimate, nothing is set in stone until the physical walkthrough is made.
Yes, if you want an accurate estimate for your move, a physical walkthrough is critical. Moving companies should not give a written estimate without a physical inspection. As a customer, you should protect yourself and ask for a written estimate as verbal estimates are not legally binding.
First, we compute the distance from point A to point B. Then we take an inventory of all belongings that need to be loaded and moved to the new location. We then calculate how many hours the entire move will take and if special tools and equipment need to be used during the move. These are the factors that affect the cost of your move.
Although written estimates are pretty accurate, moving homes or offices is never without unforeseen circumstances. Even with careful planning, delays sometimes happen, so there’s a chance you may have to pay more at the end of the move. However, it is illegal for any moving company to charge more than 110% of what is written on the bill of lading.
Local moves that are less than 50 miles away usually cost $200 to $600 for studio and 1-bedroom apartments. If you own a 3-bedroom apartment, the total cost may go up to $700 to $1,500.
It depends on the number of items you have and if you have items that require special care. Typically, for a crew of 3 movers, it only takes up to a couple of hours to clear a house if no problems are encountered in the process.
Of course, we have secure storage all over Connecticut as well as other states. You can choose to store your items there temporarily while you figure out your new living conditions.
Fully registered moving companies are required by law to offer insurance to all their customers. We provide free insurance for all moves, although this won’t cover 100% of your items. If you want, you can avail of our complete protection insurance as an add-on for your moving services.
The amount of preparation needed on your part depends on what services you paid for. If you requested our complete moving package, this includes everything from packing, loading to unpack and unloading. This means you don’t need to prepare for anything, and you can simply wait for the moving crew to arrive and let them take care of everything. If you don’t feel comfortable not preparing for anything, you can always unplug your appliances or disassemble your computer to ready them for packing.
Not necessarily. The important part is that you are present to receive the moving team and give them instructions. If you don’t have a car and need to get to your new home, you can always ride with the truck provided there’s extra space.
The agent assigned to you during your consultation call will become your moving manager. Your manager will be there to supervise the move from the planning to the delivery stage. They will perform the inspection, give you the necessary documents, and will be there to manage the move and receive your payment. If you have any questions or details that you want to be changed, you can talk to your moving manager about it.
Delays are normal and there are factors outside of our control that can cause problems during the move, such as the weather. We take responsibility for any delays caused by our team or our vehicles. However, if the move was delayed because you forgot to pack your belongings or did not pay for a parking permit, you have to pay for the extra time if you are on an hourly rate.
I Paid For Basic Moving Services, But Now I’ve Discovered That I Don’t Have Enough Time To Pack. Can I Just Add Packing To My List Of Services On The Moving Date Itself?
Any changes on your bill of lading or contract should be made beforehand. This gives us time to prepare for any changes and update your bill before the actual moving date. We can always add packing to your list of services, but if you don’t inform the moving crew beforehand, they may not have enough packing materials on the truck and may need to go back to the office to get some more, which will result in delays.
