Long distance moving companies in Portsmouth, Virginia
There is a lot to think about when you are getting ready for a long distance move to or from Portsmouth, Virginia. Finding the right moving company is one of the big ones but protecting yourself from accidents is also essential. Even with a great moving company, sometimes things go wrong, and you can save a lot of anxiety by carefully considering the moving liability protection you choose.
When you review estimates from the movers, you will see that in each case, you have a choice: Basic protection included with the cost of the move and full value (often called replacement coverage) at an extra charge. You may be tempted to select the “free” coverage because moving is already expensive. Consider that if something breaks, the reimbursement from the basic coverage isn’t going to pay enough to replace it.
The limits for repayment (set by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, not by your mover) are sixty cents per pound, which, unfortunately, isn’t going to go far. For example, if you have a thirty-pound flat-screen television, the reimbursement of $18.00 is laughable. You may want to review and consider the more comprehensive coverage. Talk to your mover about the details.

Insurance is important when choosing a local moving company too. Not only should you consider protecting your shipment (which some consumers skip because of the short distance), but you should also check that the moving company has adequate corporate liability and workers’ compensation coverage. Local movers in Virginia must maintain proof of insurance with the Department of Motor Vehicles. Still, you may want to ask the company representative to share it with you as well.
How much does it cost to move in Portsmouth, Virginia?
Local move prices are calculated on an hourly basis, depending on how much time the mover needs to do the work. Suppose the mover estimates your job will take six hours, and the hourly rate is $150. That cost is $900, plus any extra fees for material, fuel, or insurance. Ask what’s included when you get the estimate.
A long distance estimate will be based on the shipment’s weight and the distance, and the mover will provide you with their tariff, which explains any other costs, such as stair carries. You should compare several estimates before choosing.

Frequently Asked Questions
Which Governing Body Regulates Moving Companies in Portsmouth City, Virginia?
The Virginia Department of Motor Vehicles is the organization that regulates moving companies in the city of Portsmouth. The department oversees moves in the whole state of Virginia and keeps a register of licensed companies. For companies that operate between states as well, the United States Department of Transportation is the regulator.
When Is Peak Moving Period in Portsmouth, Virginia and when Should I Begin Planning My Move?
The peak moving period in the city is the summer. This is because an academic session has ended, many people are on holiday from work, and the weather is warm and comfortable. However, because of this, the cost of moving goes up and moving companies are less available for quick moves. If you plan on moving in the summer, you should already contact a moving company at the beginning of the year.
