Moving is hectic, no matter the distance. Whether you are moving within Kansas or outside the state, moving can become easier with help from a moving company like Three Men And A Truck.
Long Distance Moving in Kansas
Most people assume that a long-distance move is one you move thousands of miles away. Any move over a 100-mile radius qualifies as a long-distance move. Such a move needs careful planning, and for the best experience, enlisting a reputable moving company to help with the logistics. Ask the moving company if it is registered with FMCSA (Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration) and whether it holds a valid USDOT registration number. The moving company should also be appropriately insured, which means your belongings are insured against any damage while in transit.
Local Moving in Kansas
A local move is one under 100 miles, but that does not make it less critical. As long as your valuable belongings are in transit, it does not matter the distance. They have to be correctly loaded and unloaded by experienced movers to prevent damage.
Many items like pianos, Television sets, or fine art pieces often get damaged when inexperienced people attempt to move without a professional. Three Men And A Truck provides comprehensive services for your move to avoid these losses, ensuring your items get to their destination in one piece.
Services Offered by Three Men And A Truck in Kansas
Residents of Kansas enjoy professional services from Three Men And A Truck such as:
When you move from one residential space to another, be it an apartment, home, or condo, it’s classified as a residential move. The residential move could be long-distance, local, International, or cross-country.
When business entities change premises from one building to another, regardless of where to, that is a commercial move. Three Men And A Truck have the expertise and many years of experience with commercial moving.
In the Military, transfers and moving are the norms. Typically, the Military facilitates the moves by having pre-determined moving companies that their staff uses. However, should the staff decide to use other experienced third-party companies, they still get support. Moving companies like Three Men And A Truck have special packages designed for Military men and women and have many years of experience with Military moving.
Three Men And A Truck realize that sometimes, your belongings may get to their destination before you do. Sometimes you may travel right before a move, and you had already vacated your home. In these situations, your belongings need storage before you get back on your feet and organize your home occupation.
At Three Men And A Truck, we have storage facilities to offer you bundled services to avoid using different companies. If we cannot provide company storage, we liaise with trusted storage facilities to ensure your items stay safe for as long as you need them to remain in storage.
Three Men And A Truck provide you with packing and crating your belongings before a move. We help in crating delicate items like paintings, antiques, and other fragile items. If you own very fragile and valuable items, you may want to pay for White Glove services for additional protection for your items.

Frequently Asked Questions
How Accurate Are Your Moving Estimates and Are They Considered Final?
During the initial inquiry call, our representative will ask you some questions to identify what services you need from us. Depending on your responses, we can provide a rough estimate that is around 90% correct.
After the on-site inspection, we can then give a more precise estimate that’s 99% accurate.
What’s the Best Time to Move in Kansas, and How Far Ahead Should I Plan My Move?
The best time to move to Kansas depends on your plan and budget. Many people prefer moving to Kansas during the summer. But since other people are also moving, the prices of real estate properties will go up.
Moving is a difficult process so make sure to plan it months ahead. Call a moving firm 2-4 weeks for a local move or 4-6 weeks in advance for a long-distance move.
Is There Anything That a Moving Crew Won’t Accept to Load?
Many moving companies will refuse to load items like pets, plants, chemicals, and flammable items. Loading them to their trucks or containers is a clear violation of the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration’s (FMCSA) interstate relocation regulations.
Who Regulates Moving Companies in Kansas and Where Can I Verify a Movers’ License?
The Transportation Division supervises moving firms in Kansas in order to protect the public interest and promote safety. If you are planning a local or local-distance move inside the state of Kansas, be sure to check if your moving business has the necessary permits from the Kansas Corporation Commission (KCC Operating Authority). You may check the Commission’s website to see if your potential movers are licensed.
I Had an Emergency and Now I Need a Last-Minute Move. Is That Possible?
Yes, it’s possible to move right away. Many moving companies are now offering same-day moves. In this type of moving service, the moving crew will immediately start packing and loading your stuff after giving details to the moving company.
Though keep in mind that the same-day move is not always available. If the moving firm has a full schedule on your chosen day, then you have to wait for availability.
I Don’t Have Enough Boxes to Package Up My Belongings. Where Can I Find Moving Boxes in Kansas?
You can buy moving boxes online, such as on Craigslist or eBay. But if you need the boxes right away, we can provide them for you through our packing services.
What Documents Do I Need to Have on Me on the Day of the Move?
Make sure that your personal documents, as well as the files provided by the moving firm, are readily available on the day of the move. In some cases, the moving crew may ask for the estimate, bill, insurance certificate, and inventory list before they begin packing and loading your things. Your moving manager can help you manage the documentation that you’ll need.
I Want to Add/Remove Some Services Before Moving Day. Is That Possible?
Yes, you can add or remove services prior to the move date. Most movers will agree to it as long as it does not disrupt most of the moving procedures. If you ask for same-day changes, the moving company may not approve it.
Do I Have to Be Present During the Move or At the Destination?
No, not always. However, it’s best to present during the moving date because there will be a lot of paperwork to sign, and the team will be waiting for any last-minute instructions from you.
Your presence during the delivery is not always necessary. But it’s better if you’re at the location to check if everything is shipped.
I’m not ready to move all my items to the destination yet. Who provides storage services in Kansas?
Many moving firms provide storage options. If your new house is not yet ready for unpacking, you can ask us to retain your items in our storage space.
A Moving Company Defrauded Me! How Can I File a Complaint in Kansas?
Report the incident to the Kansas Corporation Commission, Transportation Division. But be sure to contact the moving firm before you formally file your complaint. Check your contract if the moving company violates any of your agreements.
