Long distance Chesapeake, Virginia movers
Long distance moves are big life changes. There is a lot involved with moving, and the distance adds to the complexity. Choosing the right mover makes everything more manageable and lowers your stress level. Three Men and a Truck suggests that you consider these tips from the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) when you are working to identify a long distance moving company:
- Limit your search to movers that register with FMCSA, which is required. These companies comply with federal licensing standards and agree to follow the rules FMCSA has established to protect consumers. You can find out more about the requirements on the FMCSA site.
- Always ask for a written estimate based on a visual survey of the household goods you are shipping. Never sign an agreement with blank spaces where the price should be or missing portions. A good mover will present a complete, legible contract for you. The quote must tell you if it is binding (fixed price) or nonbinding (can change). Ask questions about what’s included.
- Ask about the mover’s arbitration program. All interstate moving companies must have one and offer you information about it. A reputable company won’t be reluctant to share the details with you.
Local moving companies in Chesapeake, Virginia
There are a couple of significant differences between a local move and a long distance relocation. With a local project, you can often move some things on your own, perhaps over a few days. Since the distance is typically short, you don’t have the burden of loading everything into a truck and watching it take off for the new destination.
This situation allows you some flexibility with the moving company if you want to do some of the packing and moving on your own, and hire a mover to manage the tough stuff (heavy furniture, hard-to-maneuver items, etc.) But when you are talking to the local movers, make sure you ask about their full service pricing. You may be surprised at the reasonable cost of a short distance move, and it may make sense to turn over more of the hard work to the professionals.
How much does it cost to move in Chesapeake, Virginia?
The average long distance move for a small family is about $4,300, while you can often complete a local transfer for under $1,000 in Chesapeake. But it’s best to get estimates based on your situation for the most accurate results.
