Oftentimes you’ll find that long distance movers are a better option for you than using pods are. Regardless of the way in which you go about moving your household’s items, you’re bound to discover that it’s at least somewhat stressful for everyone who’s involved in the moving process. If you’re going to hire some long distance movers to help you with your move, then it may be a little less stressful but it’s vital that you know how to properly budget for them.
The estimates that you receive from professional long distance movers are based upon things like:
1. How far you’ll be moving, hence how far they’ll be traveling. Typically they expect to travel at least 100 miles and cross at least one state line while doing so.
2. How much labor will be required on each end of the move
3. How much stuff you’ll be moving
4. How much your stuff weighs
5. What time of the year it is.
Whenever you call a moving company to get an estimate, the following things will need to be taken into consideration:
1. Is this a full service move, meaning will they be packing your stuff, loading it onto their truck, transporting it to your new home, then unloading and unpacking it there?
2. Do you have any discounts through such places as AAA?
3. Do you need insurance? Typically you can expect to pay approximately $7.50 per $1,000 worth of items.
Regardless of how you decide to go about making your move, it’s important for you to take some time to check out the long distance movers’ track record before you ever actually hire them. This is really easy to do today thanks to the Internet. Simply go online to the Better Business Bureau’s website and you’ll find out everything that you need to know about your moving company. This is something well worth doing since you don’t want anything to go wrong along the way.
