Long distance movers Delaware
Choosing a professional Delaware moving company for long distance moves is a crucial part of the relocation process. Fortunately, long distance moving companies or interstate movers are regulated by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (known as FMCSA).
FMCSA develops rules to protects customer interests. The agency requires moving companies to register, so you guys can validate their compliance on its website. While you’re on the agency’s website, you can easily review the safety record and any customer complaints related to all the Delaware movers.
FMCSA has created a number of rules to safeguard consumers. One such rule, a key consideration, pertains to moving homes. This rule requires interstate movers to visit your house and conduct onsite inspections of the household goods you plan to move. After a complete inspection, the representative will calculate the moving costs and submit the quote in writing.
In short, it’s not just about getting a free quote; expect professional Delaware moving services to comply with this rule. Some Delaware moving companies may ask you to waive one or both of these stipulations, but it isn’t in your best interest. The mover will do a better job on the rate quoted if they visually survey your shipment, and a written estimate is better for customer protection.
Some Delaware movers also offer a free quote too. And if you’re looking for popular services in Delaware or its surrounding areas, contact Three Men And A Truck via call or online form and get your free estimate.
Local movers Delaware
Planning your local move within the city? Are you in search of a Delaware moving company – the one that won’t raise your stress level? For a hassle free relocation from one street to another street – or town, here’s an important aspect of local moving businesses you should keep in mind.
Local Delaware movers are not regulated, so you need to verify that the mover you choose is efficient enough to handle the job. You can select a mover that also works on interstate jobs besides moving across the city. In this case, you can still review their performance on the FMCSA site.
If you hire a smaller, independent service for local moves, consider these steps:
- Get referrals from someone you know or a professional – like your realtor or rental agent.
- Ask for the mover’s business license and how long they have been operating.
- Confirm insurance coverage, including adequate corporate liability, cargo protection, and workers’ compensation.
- Get references for recent customers who can provide feedback on their work ethic, and overall service.
How much will it cost to move to or from Delaware?
Finding out how much your upcoming move will cost is best achieved by requesting written estimates from several reputable movers. Local jobs will be priced hourly, depending on how much time the mover needs to get the work done. Long distance pricing depends on the shipment’s weight, the moving storage, the trip’s length, and other factors that influence labor requirements.

Frequently Asked Questions
Are your initial estimates accurate?
During the initial consultation call, our team member will ask some questions to determine what services you’ll be needing. Based on your answers, we can already give a general estimate that is around 90% accurate. However, this estimate becomes more accurate after the physical inspection of your house. Our written estimates are usually 99% accurate.
Will you provide me a written copy of my estimate?
Yes. The estimate given to you during the call is non-binding, and fully registered moving companies are not allowed to provide written estimates to their customers until a physical inspection is done. During the physical walkthrough, we will take inventory of your items and the list will be included in your written estimate. We advise against transacting with any company that refuses to provide a written estimate.
The Delaware moving company is asking for a moving deposit. Is this legal?
Yes, moving companies are allowed to ask for a moving deposit for several reasons. For one, it protects them against people who book but don’t follow through on their moves. It also allows them to verify that the payment information given by the client is correct. If you are having second thoughts, check if the company is certified and registered to see if they’re legit.
How far ahead should I start planning my move?
For moves within the state of Delaware, you should start preparing for your move around 2-4 weeks before the moving date. This means you should start booking moving services around that time to give both you and the moving company enough time to prepare. For a long-distance move, advance notice of 4-6 weeks is recommended.
Is it proper to ask Delaware movers for legal documentation?
If you want to confirm if they are a legitimate business with the proper permits, it is within your rights to do so. Your moving company should be able to show you their business permit, and any certifications they have with the proper government agencies in Delaware. Any moving service that becomes defensive when asked for these should be avoided.
The moving company told me that my estimate is non-binding. What is this?
This means that the estimate they gave you at the beginning may change on moving day. Movers usually give non-binding estimates for long-distance moves because there are a lot of unknowns that come with moving great distances. Ask your company if they have a limit in excess of the original estimate. Having a limit means that there is a limit to how much the company can add to your bill from the original estimate they gave.
I live in a studio apartment. How much will moving within Delaware cost me?
Studio-sized moves usually cost around $100 to $200 for moves less than 50 miles. This general estimate doesn’t take into consideration seasonality, insurance, and additional moving services.
Do I need to help the crew with packing and loading?
If you paid for packing and loading, you don’t need to help the movers with this step. You can watch and supervise them as they pack and load your items into the truck. Some Delaware moving companies will forbid you from helping out because this will invalidate your insurance coverage. Insurance covers all services done by the moving company, so if you did some of the packing yourself, they are not liable for any damages sustained by items that you handled on your own.
Someone called me claiming to be my moving manager. Who is that?
The moving company usually assigns a liaison who will supervise the moving process, from the calculation of costs to the delivery of the items. Your moving manager will contact you regularly to help prepare for the big day. There’s a lot to go over, from the many services you can get to make the moving process stress free, to the paperwork that needs to be looked over and signed.
Is my presence needed during the entire move?
Not necessarily. However, it does help if you’re there during pickup. There’s a lot of paperwork to sign and the team will be there to receive any last-minute instructions from you. This will prevent items from being missed or misplaced. You don’t have to accompany the moving crew during the transportation of the items. If you can be present during delivery, all the better. However, if you’re busy, you can always ask someone else to be there to receive the items.
I don’t know how to get rid of all the packing materials used for the move. Can you help clear and dispose of them?
If you paid for our complete moving services, this will include packing and unpacking. Since we packed the items for you, we will also take care of unpacking them at your new house. Once we’re done, we’ll clear away any packing materials to prevent cluttering up your new home.
I have to leave some of my stuff behind. Do you offer storage services to keep them?
We have secure storage facilities in Delaware and all over the US to accommodate requests like yours. If you can’t take all your belongings with you to your new house, you can keep them in our moving storage facilities for a short term.
What happens if my belongings are damaged in transit?
As a certified moving company, we offer insurance for all our customers. We have basic insurance, which gives customers coverage of up to $0.60 per pound. This coverage is free, but if you want 100% insurance coverage, it comes as an added cost. Also, keep in mind that we only provide coverage for services rendered. This means that if your items were damaged while you were packing them, the company is not liable for that.
What happens during the delivery phase of the move?
Once the truck arrives at your new home, you or a representative should be present to receive the delivery. If you paid for full moving services, our crew will unload and unpack your items for you. Before the move, you should have received a written inventory of items from your moving manager. Before paying your balance for the entire move, go through the list to ensure that all items are accounted for.
My last moving company was horrible. Where do I file a complaint or leave negative feedback to warn others?
If you had a negative experience with a moving company, the first step you should take is to contact your moving manager to give your feedback. In many cases, the main office is usually unaware of any bad service delivered by its crew, so your feedback is valuable. They may try to solve things with a refund or a discount, so try to negotiate with them. If this fails, you can always leave a complaint on sites like the Better Business Bureau or the FMCSA.
