Moving to a new part of the state, out of state or even across the country is an exciting time for most people. It is a chance to experience a new location or perhaps return to a familiar place. There is the opportunity to have a new home, a new job or maybe to retire to a warm location or near family and friends.
Regardless of the reason for a long distance move, having the right moving company to do the job is critical. When you trust the movers you have selected, you can relax through the moving process and trust your possessions are in caring, safe and professional hands.
Look for Local Offices with National Networks
Some of the top long distance movers are comprised of family owned and operated local offices that are part of a network of national agents. This is an ideal situation for long distance moves. The local office is in your own community, so it is easy to find out information on the performance and professionalism of the movers.
With the national network of offices, you can also expect the same quality of services for unloading and even unpacking at your destination location. This is essential as some movers hired day labor at the destination, which can put your items at greater risk for theft, damage or breakage.
Get the Help You Need
There is a lot more work in moving than most people anticipate. Packing can become a real challenge for busy professionals, people with kids or for anyone with a busy lifestyle.
One very easy way to find peace of mind with your move is to hire a moving company offering professional packing services. This will involve a trained crew or team of professional packers and movers providing full home or partial packing services.
Full home packing will wrap, protect, box and pack all of the items in your home. This is typically done a few days before the move date. Partial packing can include specific rooms of the home or specific items such as breakables, electronics, computers, antiques or any combination of packing needs.
Additionally, if you aren’t ready to move into a new home quite yet or if the new place isn’t ready, a moving company offering storage services also makes your move simple and stress-free. They can pack the home, move things to storage and then when you are ready, they can have them moved to your new location with just a phone call.
