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.

Frequently Asked Questions
When Is the Best Time of The Year to Move to Minnesota?
Any convenient time is usually the best time to move. However, if you are considering your finances, you should avoid moving during summer. This is when moving rates are high due to the high number of movers at the time.
How Far Ahead Should I Plan My Move?
The possibility of same-day moving does not mean it is the best strategy. It’s advisable to contact us from 2-4 weeks before your local distance move, and 4-6 weeks before your long-distance move.
How Do I Know If My Move Is Local or Long Distance?
Local moving refers to moves within a hundred miles and usually takes place inside the state. Long-distance moves are those that are above one hundred miles and usually across states or countries.
Who Regulates Moving Companies in Minnesota?
A company check is important to ensure you work with the right people. Moving regulations in Minnesota are controlled by the Minnesota Department of Transportation (MNDOT). You can confirm our credibility or file a moving complaint by contacting them through the link or call (651) 215-6330.
Where Can I Find Moving Boxes in Minnesota?
The right question should be, do you want to take time out from your busy schedule to start looking for boxes? Mind you, you will also look for tapes, bubble wraps, markers, etc. Why not pay a little extra for our full moving service? You could then sit back with a smile and watch us work. We will not just help you with the boxing but also with your packing, loading, and setting up of your home or office.
If you are still set on finding the boxes, you could check out your local supermarket chain or retailer. They are usually happy to do away with them.
How Accurate Are Your Moving Estimates and Are They Considered Final?
Initial consultation estimates made over the phone are considered to be 90% correct. Good enough you say? Our final and reliable estimate can only be gotten after an on-site inspection. This is highly recommended by Three Men And A Truck.
Who Offers Moving Storage Space in Minnesota?
Sometimes your new location may not be adequate for your items, or you may want to store your items until they are ready for movement. You can choose to use our storage facility for a fee. Mind you, Minnesota laws have special conditions for storage that will exceed 90 days.
Is There Anything That a Moving Company Won’t Accept to Load?
The storage of perishables is not allowed for now. Transportation of guns, plants, animals, and combustible items, is also prohibited. You can get a full list of the unacceptable items from your moving manager.
I Want to Add or Remove Some Services Before Moving Day. Is It Possible?
Forgetting to add an item or deciding to remove an item from the list is a common feature, but it is advisable to make changes before moving day. Moving day changes are possible but difficult to achieve.
Do I Have to Be Present During the Move or At the Destination?
You must be present during the start of relocation since you will need to give and sign certain documents. You can choose not to be present at the destination, so long as you are represented.
