Long distance moving companies in Kent, Washington
Finding the right mover to assist with your long distance move to or from Kent, Washington, can be intimidating. Most people don’t move frequently, and you may not know how to evaluate the company’s credentials. Three Men and a Truck suggests that you consider the advice from the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (known as FMCSA), which is the agency that oversees interstate movers.
- Limit your search to moving companies that register with FMCSA (as required by federal regulations.) The mover will have an ID number issued by the DOT, and you can check their safety record and customer complaint history online.
- Always get written estimates that the mover has created based on a visual review of the shipment. Some movers will ask you to waive the onsite inspection, but you will get a more accurate rate quote if they do the walkthrough.
- Don’t assume the basic insurance is adequate for your needs. Every estimate will have two options for protecting your goods, so carefully consider which one is right for you.
Local Kent, Washington movers
When you are looking for a local company to handle your move in Kent, you may have recommendations from family or friends to get you started. That’s always helpful, but make sure you also check the mover’s credentials. Ask for their business license and stop by their local facility. Request documentation of their insurance coverage, including both liability and workers’ compensation. Get references for recent customers who you can ask about their service. Taking these steps and comparing written estimates will help you choose the best mover for the job.
How much will my move to or from Kent, Washington, cost?
Moving costs vary according to the amount of stuff being moved and the distance. Local jobs are typically less costly, and yours might be completed for under $1,000 if you have an average sized home. Long distance relocation prices are higher, and the average is around $4,500. The best way to get an idea of what your particular move will cost is to ask several reputable moving companies to provide an estimate.

Frequently Asked Questions
How Accurate Are Your Moving Estimates and Are They Considered Final?
The reliability of the free quotations gathered via phone or web forms is 90% accurate. Still, the moving company can only provide the final written statement and ask for a down payment once they have already conducted an on-site inspection in your area. If they haven’t and they started asking for a pre-service fee, then feel free to drop the transaction because they’re possibly a company that practices fraudulent acts.
What’s The Best Time to Move in Kent, Washington? How Far Should I Plan?
Try to avoid moving to Kent, Washington during March, June, and July. This is the peak period in the city so if you want to stay away from the rush of the crowd and expensive costs due to the transportation demands, move to Kent, Washington, in December. Tourists are less likely to visit the city, so you’ll have more free space to walk around Kent, and your transportation costs are cheaper.
The recommended times to contact a moving company are:
● 2-4 weeks for local moves
● 3-6 weeks for long-distance moves
Who Regulates Moving Companies in Kent, Washington? Where Can I Verify a Movers’ License?
In Washington, The Utilities and Transport Commission is the department that regulates moving companies. The state law requires applicants to have a current UTC permit and to provide you with specific documents for every move, such as:
● An accurate list of items to move
● Written and signed estimate
● Bill of Lading. This is the most important document you must keep because this serves as your contract and receipt. This includes the services they will perform and the amount they will charge.
If a moving company is already asking for a pre-service fee without an on-site inspection and showing the specified requirements, don’t hesitate to contact the FMCSA through their website.
How Do I Know If My Move Is Local or Long-Distance?
A move is considered local if the distance is within a 50 to 100-miles radius. On the other hand, long-distance moves exceed a 100-mile radius, and they’re usually outside the state or in the far end of the city.
I Want to Add/Remove Some Services Before Moving Day. Is That Possible?
Yes, it’s possible to add and remove several services before your moving day, but you should also consider the distance and types of items you want to be moved.
A Moving Company Defrauded Me! How Can I File a Complaint in Kent, Washington?
If you still decided to go through with the transaction with a moving company even if they didn’t show you the required documents, you got defrauded.
