Long distance movers in Bridgeport, Connecticut
If you are planning a long distance move to or from Bridgeport, Connecticut, you may be concerned by the reports of increased fraud in the moving industry. How can you be sure that the mover you choose isn’t going to hijack your shipment for an exorbitant payment or simply disappear? There are some signs to watch out for to help identify unscrupulous operators:
- If the mover doesn’t want to conduct an onsite, visual evaluation of your household goods before submitting an estimate—that’s a red flag. Federal regulations require this visual inspection, and it’s the best way for the moving company to craft an accurate assessment of the shipment’s weight, which forms the basis of the estimate.
- Offering only a verbal estimate instead of putting the price in writing is also a bad sign—the mover might be planning to raise the price when they load your goods or deliver them.
- If the mover demands a large deposit before the move, particularly if they want cash, you should be suspicious. Sometimes a moving company will take a deposit and not show up to do the work. If you pay cash, you can’t dispute the charge like you can with a credit card transaction.
Local Bridgeport, Connecticut moving companies
When you are hiring a mover in Bridgeport to assist with your local relocation, you may have referrals from friends or family who have moved. That’s a great place to start. Most movers agree that personal recommendations are their best advertising.
But make sure you do some checking to verify that the company is legitimate. Ask for a copy of their business license and proof of adequate corporate insurance. Get a written estimate, even for a small job, and check that the bid indicates whether it is binding or nonbinding. A nonbinding estimate isn’t a firm price, so ask the mover what it’s based on and how much it can increase.
How much will it cost to move to or from Bridgeport, Connecticut?
Every move is different, but each one is priced based on the shipment’s weight and the trip’s distance. A local job can often be completed for under $1,000, while a long distance relocation averages near $4,500. It’s best to compare quotes from several movers before choosing one.

Frequently Asked Questions
Is My Move Local or Long-Distance?
Generally speaking, if your move is within 100 miles, it is a local move. If it exceeds 100 miles, this move is considered as a long-distance one. Interstate moves are categorized as long-distance.
How Far in Advance Should I Plan?
We highly recommend that customers contact the moving company two to six weeks in advance, depending on whether your move is local or long-distance.
During this period, it is best to start planning your move. Your moving manager will help you throughout this process.
When Should I Move To Bridgeport?
It is best to move to the historic seaport city of Bridgeport in April. The month of April in Bridgeport has pleasant weather that will make your move less stressful. This is also one of the less busy months for movers.
I Don’t Have Boxes To Pack My Things. Where Can I Find Cardboard Boxes In Bridgeport?
This depends on where you are. An alternative you can try is to check out Craigslist and Facebook Marketplace. If you need a box right away, grocery stores, book stores, and recycle drop-off points might be selling some.
Can I Add/Remove Services?
The services you avail of are personalized to your needs and wants. You can entirely customize your moving process, which is why it’s crucial to coordinate with your moving manager. We recommend that you finalize your plans beforehand. We can accommodate last-minute changes, but it will depend on the agreement between you and the moving company.
What Items Will Not Be Loaded by The Moving Crew?
Plants, animals, chemicals, and flammable materials are some items that the moving crew will not load.
For more information regarding this, we recommend that you check out the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) website.
How Long Does It Take For The Moving Crew To Clear Out A House?
Clearing out a house will depend on the number of your items, the size of your house, and the services you chose. If everything’s good to go, the crew can do the job in an hour or less. However, if you availed of the complete moving services, the team will need to mark and pack your items before loading. The job can take around 1-2 hours, depending on the number of items and the specifics of the moving process.
Should I Be Worried About Packing My Own Things?
That depends if you want to do the packing yourself or if you want to leave everything for the moving crew. If you decide to avail of the complete moving service, we’ll take care of packing your items. If you choose to do it yourself, we’d be happy to oblige with this request.
It’s best to start your packing a month before moving day. You should start with packing items you need less such as seasonal items.
Do You Offer Free Insurance?
As a fully licensed company, we are bound by the law to provide insurance for our customers. We provide two types of insurance – basic insurance and complete protection. Basic insurance is free for all customers, but it doesn’t cover all of the items you have. If you want to be fully protected, we recommend you get complete protection as an additional service.
Is It Possible That I Have To Pay More Than The Initial Estimate?
Only if you refuse a physical inspection of the premises. In that case, the estimate given will be solely based on information shared during the initial consultation call. While the estimate can be fairly accurate, there are instances where the information given by the customer is inaccurate. On moving day, the moving company may discover that you have more items or a larger house than what was in the plans. The moving company could charge extra in instances like these.
I Have A Complaint. Who Should I Contact?
If you have complaints regarding your moving company, you should contact the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) at 1-800-832-5660.
