Long distance New Jersey moving companies
When you hire the right mover, it makes moving much simpler. But if you don’t move frequently, you may not know what to look for. Here are some tips from the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) to help you find a great moving company:
- Ask for recommendations from friends and family.
- Make sure the mover is registered with FMCSA and has a motor carrier number.
- Check with the Better Business Bureau regarding their reputation.
- Ask about the mover’s dispute settlement program.
- Obtain written estimates from at least three movers.
- Find out how you will contact the mover during the transit.
- Don’t trust a mover that demands a cash deposit in advance.
It’s a best practice in the industry for the mover to base the estimate on an in-person inspection of what you are moving. That step is the most accurate method of determining the shipment’s weight, which is what the move’s cost is based on. Three Men and a Truck will gladly schedule an in-home estimate, and we will review the quote with you and answer any questions.
New Jersey local movers
A local move can be completed within a day, does not cross a state line, and is often a distance of under 100 miles. In New Jersey, these moves are under the New Jersey Division of Consumer Affairs jurisdiction, which requires that movers file a tariff (a description of their pricing plans) but allows them to charge by the hour, by a flat rate, or by mileage.
Local New Jersey moving companies must display a license number on their vehicles. State regulations also require that the movers provide written estimates, based on a visual inspection of the household items to be moved, similar to the FMCSA rules.
