Long distance Virginia Beach, Virginia movers
When you start your search for a mover to handle the long distance move to or from Virginia Beach, Virginia, you may be uncertain of the best practices in choosing a vendor. Consider a visit to the FMCSA website. FMCSA is the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, the agency that oversees interstate moving companies.
They recommend that you obtain estimates from at least three reputable movers (check their site to ensure that each one is registered and licensed) and that the bids are based on a visual survey of the household goods you are shipping. The reason for this suggestion is that a visual inspection results in a more accurate estimate of the weight, and the weight forms the basis of the price, along with the mileage. When the mover comes to complete the in-person survey, you can discuss the move and ask questions about services like packing, crating, storage, and insurance.
Local moving companies in Virginia Beach, Virginia
In Virginia, the Department of Motor Vehicles oversees movers that operate entirely within the state. The DMV has a permit system for very short distance companies (working on moves of 30 miles or less) and a certificate requirement for intrastate moves of more than 30 miles. While movers offering these numbers should have up-to-date licenses and insurance coverage, it’s a good idea to ask the mover for proof of those items. Confirm that they have coverage to protect your household goods and protect you if one of their workers damages the property you are moving into or out of or if a worker is injured.
Even if you get a recommendation for a moving company from a friend or family member, ask the mover for recent customer references. Also, look on the Better Business Bureau website for positive or negative reviews placed by other customers.
How much will it cost to move to or from Virginia Beach, Virginia?
Local moving companies generally charge an hourly rate, and most have a two or four-hour minimum. When they submit an estimate, they will tell you how many hours they need to complete the work and what other fees are added to the hourly charge.
Long distance moves are priced according to the shipment’s weight and the distance. The accuracy of the survey is crucial in both types of job, so get several to compare.

Do Moving Companies Offer Same-day Services and How Far Ahead Should I Plan My Move?
We provide same-day service at Three Men And A Truck. However, just because same-day moving is possible does not guarantee it is the best option. It’s best to call us 2-4 weeks ahead of time for a local move and 4-6 weeks ahead of time for a long-distance move.
How Do I Know if My Move is Local or Long-distance?
Local moves are those that take place within a hundred miles of each other and are usually done within the same state. Long-distance moves are those that are more than 100 miles long and take place across multiple states or countries.
