Long distance movers in Arlington, Virginia

If you are planning a long distance move, you may have a list of potential vendors to work with or rely on the results of an internet search. Possibly, you have referrals from family or friends, or you kept the business card from the great company you worked with on your last move. All of those are great places to start the selection process.

Keep in mind that movers may have experienced turnover, and businesses change. Check to be sure that the vendor you are considering is still registered with FMCSA. That’s the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, which oversees interstate moving companies, and up-to-date registration with FMCSA is the best credential for a mover. Also, request an onsite survey of your shipment, followed up by a written estimate. These steps will help you get the most accurate rate quote and establish that the mover you are hiring is reputable and honest.

Local Arlington, Virginia moving companies

The Virginia Department of Motor Vehicles regulates movers that work strictly inside the Commonwealth, although many local moves in the Arlington area cross over a state line and automatically fall under FMCSA jurisdiction. To verify the credentials of a local Virginia mover, check the DMV list of permits and certificates. To be on the list, movers must prove that they carry adequate cargo and liability insurance. They also file a bond and a copy of their tariff, listing their prices and fees.

If your vendor is on this list, that’s a good start. Also, check their customer references and make sure you get a written estimate before you engage them.

How much does it cost to move in Arlington, Virginia?

Short distance movers are typically quite reasonable, working on an hourly rate for local moves. Most will have a minimum, and they will disclose it when they submit the estimate if your job takes less time than the minimum requirement. Ask if things like the use of furniture dollies, blankets, pads, and straps are included in the price, and make sure you understand the cost of reasonable insurance.

Long distance moves cost more due to the travel, and the cost is based on the shipment’s weight and the mileage. Make sure that you know whether the estimate is binding or nonbinding.

Frequently Asked Question

When is the Best Time to Move to Arlington, Virginia?

It is common to select holiday seasons for your moving. So is also the plan of most movers in the county of Arlington. If you want to save a fortune from your moving, you will have to consider moving during fall or autumn. Rates at these times are lower because of low moving demands.

How Far Ahead Should I Plan My Move?

Company regulations stipulate that we serve our clients regardless of when they consult us. We offer moving services even on the same day of consultation. However, it does not mean that clients have to wait till moving day before contacting us. You can contact us for local moving between 2-4 weeks or between 4-6 weeks for long-distance moving.

How Can I Know if My Move is Local or Long-distance?

You can calculate the distance of your moving to determine if it is local or long-distance moving. If your calculations fall within 100 miles then it is a local distance moving. Calculations above 100 miles or across states and national borders are considered long-distance moving.

The Virginia Department of Motor Vehicles (VADMV) is responsible for regulating moving with Arlington because it is under the state of  Virginia.

Our warehouses are secure and can be used for your storage. You can store your items while you make preparations to move them.

Is There Anything That a Moving Company Won’t Accept to Load?

Some items are prohibited for transportation by state regulations. Moving them may lead to the withholding of your items by the authorities. Please confirm with your moving manager the list of prohibited items.

I Want to Add or Remove Some Services Before Moving Day. Is it Possible?

You can make changes to your services. Whether it is delivery location, list of items, address, etc. you can contact us to make changes. However, to ensure we easily adapt to your change, you are advised to make the changes before moving day.

Is it Necessary to be Present During the Move or at the Destination?

The signing of documentation by the mover before moving makes it mandatory for you to be present. You can delegate the receiving of your items at the final destination.

Can I Request Any Changes to My Original Moving Plan Before the Move?

We understand that plans change. As such, we are happy to accommodate any changes to your original plan as long as they are requested in time. While same-day changes to your moving project can be requested, they are not always possible due to lack of availability.
