Long distance Allentown, Pennsylvania movers
Choosing a mover is a big step in preparing for your long distance move to or from Allentown, Pennsylvania. You may have heard stories about the increasing incidence of fraud in the industry. If you are wondering how to avoid becoming a victim, Three Men and a Truck has some tips for you. Be on the lookout for these red flags that can signal the mover is planning a scam:
- Be suspicious if the mover won’t complete a visual survey of your shipment but offers you a great price over the phone. Sometimes these companies give you a low “teaser” rate, and then when they come to load the truck, they tell you that you have a lot more stuff than expected—and they raise the price a LOT.
- It’s also sketchy if the mover wants a heft deposit to “reserve” your move, especially if they only take cash. Typically, movers get paid when they deliver the shipment, not before they do any work. If you pay in advance, they may not show up, or they might load your belongings in their truck and then disappear. If you gave them cash, you can’t dispute the charges; that money is just gone with your possessions.
Local moving companies in Allentown, Pennsylvania
With local movers, you don’t have fraud to worry about as much, but be careful to check out the qualifications of the company you hire. If a mover is not engaged in interstate work, it isn’t regulated as closely. So, it’s up to you to verify that the mover has a valid business license and adequate insurance. Cargo, liability, and workers’ compensation protection are crucial for a moving company, so ask to see documentation of their coverage.
How much will it cost to move to or from Allentown, Pennsylvania?
The best way to find out what your upcoming move will cost is to gather written estimates from several reputable movers for comparison. Note whether the bids are binding (that’s a fixed price) or nonbinding (the price could change if the mover miscalculated the shipment size) so that you are comparing the same type of quote. Also, make sure that each covers a similar service level.

Frequently Asked Questions
Do Three Men And A Truck Offer Same-day Move to Allentown, PA?
It’s probable that you’ll have to make last-minute plans to move to Allentown, Pennsylvania. Not all relocation firms can offer such a quick turnaround. However, we do respond to same-day moving services that are provided quickly to your new place. Reservations made at the last minute, on the other hand, should be avoided. Please schedule your appointments in advance, since we may not be available at all times.
How Far Ahead Should I Plan My Move?
Planning your relocation ahead of time allows you to be more organized and pay attention to every detail. It also allows us enough time to attend to your needs and choose the most convenient day for you. Customers are advised to plan based on the type of move they are making. Long-distance movers must tell us at least 4-6 weeks prior to their planned move. Local movers should contact us within 2-4 weeks before their planned relocation. You can tell us in shorter time frames, and we will accommodate your moving demands and provide our services. Keep in mind that same-day services are contingent on service availability.
Where Can I Find Moving Boxes in Allentown, PA?
Are you sure that you want to pack and move your items yourself? Why not pay a little extra for our full moving service and you don’t even need to leave your pick-up location. Our professionals will get the job done without extra charges. However, if you want to do it yourself, you can get moving boxes from Craigslist or your friends and relatives.
How Accurate Are Your Moving Estimates and Are They Considered Final?
When it comes to offering a moving estimate over the phone or over the internet, we’re usually accurate. However, they are merely guesses, and we all make mistakes now and then. As a result, we recommend that you allow an on-site inspection to assess the extent of the project so that we can provide you with an accurate quote.
When is the Best Time to Plan My Move to Allentown, PA?
The further you travel, the more extensive planning you’ll need, and the earlier you should start planning. Long-distance moves are more complicated, therefore they should be planned and organized well ahead of time – at least a few months before the moving date.
Start planning three to four months ahead of time if you’re relocating during peak season (usually from May to September), as moving services are in great demand.
Can I Add or Remove Some Services Before Moving Day?
When you notify us before moving day, we can easily accommodate your change of plans. It may be tough to change plans on moving day because it is so close to the scheduled time.
Is Moving to Allentown, PA Considered a Local Move or a Long-distance Move?
Distance computations are used to determine moving types. Local distance movement occurs inside a 100-mile radius, and long-distance moving occurs beyond that radius. You can figure out how much it will cost to move by looking at the distance between your pick-up and destination locations.
What Are the Factors That Determine the Total Cost of My Move?
There are several considerations to consider while relocating to Allentown, Pennsylvania. The overall distance traveled, the services provided by the bill of lading, the number of items in your possession that require special handling, the time of year, and a range of other circumstances could all play a role.
Do Three Men And A Truck Offer Storage Services?
We understand that some of our customers may not want to move all their stuff at once. Hence, they’ll need a storage space to keep them until they’re ready. This is why we made sure that we offer storage services in every state in the country.
