Long distance New Mexico movers
Finding the right mover for your long distance relocation to or from New Mexico may feel intimidating, particularly if you haven’t moved recently. Most of us aren’t sure how to evaluate moving companies and choose the best one for our needs. If you are unsure, consider these tips from FMCSA—that’s the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, the agency that oversees long distance moving companies:
- Only hire a mover that is registered with FMCSA and has a Motor carrier ID number. You can check the FMCSA site to be sure. The site has a database of interstate moving companies and information about their safety records and any customer complaints that have been filed.
- Don’t accept a verbal quote from a mover. The federal rules require movers to complete a visual survey of your shipment and submit a detailed written estimate, including a comprehensive inventory of what you need to move. Then review this information with each mover as you evaluate their offer. The estimate should include the shipment’s weight plus anything that adds to the cost (optional services you request and conditions that increase the labor required.)
Local moving companies in New Mexico
A local move in New Mexico is usually less than 100 miles and can be completed in a day. If the mover isn’t crossing a state line, it isn’t regulated by FMCSA. Instead, they file a tariff with the New Mexico Public Regulation Commission. A tariff is a list of the mover’s services and fees.
As a potential customer, it’s up to you to evaluate whether the price is reasonable and the mover is qualified. That makes it essential for you to meet the company’s representative and get a written estimate before hiring them. Ask for references from recent customers as well.
How much will it cost to move to or from New Mexico?
The most accurate way to determine how much your upcoming move will cost is to gather estimates from several reputable movers and compare them. Note whether the bids include a similar service level and check which offer a binding versus nonbinding price. Local moves are almost always less expensive than long distance due to the proximity, but there are other factors to be considered.
