Long distance Virginia moving companies

When you plan a long distance move to or from Virginia, it’s helpful to know that interstate moves are under the jurisdiction of the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, commonly referred to as FMCSA. The agency works to improve highway safety and to protect consumers from fraudulent moving company practices.

If you limit your search to movers that register with FMCSA, you have some assurance that the company you choose is aboveboard and honest. You can check that the mover is up to date with their compliance by looking for their name on FMCSA’s SAFER search tool. Also, review the mover’s safety record and customer complaint history.

The FMCSA site also offers you some informative resources about moving and what to look for in the mover’s estimate, tariff, agreement, and other relevant documents. One crucial suggestion is to always get a written estimate and contract from the chosen vendor. These precautions will help you in case any conflict over price or service level comes up.

Local movers in Virginia

Local movers in Virginia must get a certificate or a permit from the Virginia Department of Motor Vehicles (which depends on whether they work just on very short distance moves or longer moves but intrastate only). The movers are required to maintain satisfactory insurance levels, but you should not assume that they do. Ask for documentation of the insurance coverage and their business license when you are interviewing movers for your local move.

It’s a great idea to get a written estimate for your local move within Virginia, just as you would for a cross country move. Ask the mover to conduct an onsite survey of the goods you are shipping. This step will result in a more accurate bid and allow you to meet them in person and ask questions.

How much does it cost to move in Virginia?

Local moves are generally less costly than long distance projects, but every move price is determined chiefly by the size of the shipment and the distance it is being transported. The local vendor will usually offer a price quote based on an hourly charge, while the interstate estimate is based on the weight and distance. It’s a good idea to obtain bids from several movers and compare them.
