Long distance Richmond, Virginia moving companies

Choosing a mover to assist with your long distance move to or from Richmond, Virginia, can be stressful. Movers throw out a lot of unfamiliar terms and phrases like “tariff,” “valuation,” and “bill of lading.” How do you choose the best mover for your project?

Three Men and a Truck suggests that you consider the advice from the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (aka FMCSA), which oversees interstate moving companies. FMCSA offers the following recommendations for choosing a moving company:

  1. Limit your search to companies that register with FMCSA (as required by the federal regulations) and maintain appropriate licensing and insurance. You can verify the mover’s DOT status on FMCSA’s SAFER search tool.
  2. Always get a written estimate based on a visual inspection of the goods you want to ship. Don’t accept a verbal bid from a mover. The quote will be more accurate if the company inspects the shipment to evaluate the weight.
  3. Check references and look for reviews at the Better Business Bureau If too many customers have complaints about the mover, consider looking elsewhere.
Long Distance Movers In Richmond and Virginia

Local movers in Richmond, Virginia

If you are moving a short distance and not crossing a state line, the mover you engage may not be registered with FMCSA, which oversees interstate jobs. In Virginia, these projects fall under the Department of Motor Vehicles jurisdiction, which has a permit and certificate system for moving companies. Impacted companies must file a tariff with the DMV that details the rates and policies they use to charge their customers. They must also maintain insurance and keep a bond or letter of credit on file.

Ask local movers for the following:

  • Their Virginia permit or certificate
  • Proof of liability insurance
  • How long they have been operating
  • Local references from recent customers

The mover should be willing and able to provide each of these and give you a written estimate for the job.

How much will it cost to move to or from Richmond, Virginia?

Local moves are typically priced at an hourly rate and can often be completed for less than $1,000. If you have a substantial home or are seeking a full service move, the cost may be more. Long distance jobs are more expensive due to the distance, and the price is calculated according to the shipment’s weight and the mileage. The best approach is to get estimates from several reputable vendors and compare them.
