Long distance movers in Wilmington, Delaware
Planning a long distance move to or from Wilmington, Delaware, can be stressful. If you don’t move frequently, you may be uncertain how to evaluate moving companies. Three Men and a Truck suggests that you consider these tips:
- Limit your search to movers that are registered with FMCSA. That’s the abbreviation for the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, the agency that regulates interstate moving companies. Movers must register, but be careful not to engage a rogue company that isn’t in compliance. FMCSA has a search tool on their database that you can use to verify registration and review a mover’s safety record and complaint history.
- Always ask for a written estimate of the charges and ensure that the mover first completes a visual survey of your shipment. These steps are also part of the FMCSA rules, but some movers may ask you to forgo the requirement.
- Compare estimates from at least three reputable movers before you decide. Note whether the bids are binding (fixed price) or nonbinding (the price may change.)
Local Wilmington, Delaware moving companies
Moving locally is often both easier and less costly than arranging a long distance move. In Wilmington, you can choose from many moving companies, some of which are the local representatives of major chains. Others are small, independent companies. Both can be a good choice. In the case of a small company that works only on intrastate jobs, it is up to you to verify that the mover is qualified since there is no external oversight. Make sure you check for an up-to-date business license and adequate insurance coverage, including workers’ compensation.
How much will it cost to move to or from Wilmington, Delaware?
Local moves are typically much cheaper than long distance jobs and are often priced under $1,000. The cost depends mainly on the shipment size and the distance. Other factors that impact the price include service level (packing adds to the cost, for example) and logistics. Long distance projects have a wide range of costs, with the average to move to contents of a medium-sized home around $4,500.
