Long distance Minnesota movers

Choosing a moving company for your long distance move to or from Minnesota can be stressful. If you don’t move frequently, you may be unsure of what to look for in a long distance moving company. You have a lot on your to-do list, and Three Men and a Truck would like to help with some tips for choosing a reliable mover.

First, visit the FMCSA website. FMCSA is the abbreviation for the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, which oversees interstate commerce, including moving companies. Every mover that conducts moves that cross a state line must register with FMCSA and display a Motor Carrier ID, along with following the rules established to protect consumers. You can verify a company’s compliance with the registration by checking the website, and while you are there, review their safety record and any customer claims that have been filed.

The rules for movers include the requirement that they submit a written estimate based on a visual survey of your household goods shipment. If you hire a registered mover following those two steps, you will most likely find a suitable one. However, it’s wise to compare bids from several reputable companies before you select one.

Local moving companies in Minnesota  

The Minnesota Department of Transportation regulates moving companies and requires that they have a valid license and insurance. Movers within the state typically charge by the hour and must inform the state DOT of their tariff (charges) details. Ask movers to provide you with a copy of their fees as well, and make sure you compare estimates from more than one licensed mover before choosing.

How much will it cost to move to or from Minnesota?

The primary variables in determining the cost of a move are the shipment size and the distance from start to finish. Local jobs are typically less costly than long distance projects since they can usually be completed within a day. When you compare estimates from vendors, check that each is for a similar service level.
