Moving long distance is complex and can take a long time, especially if done by yourself. Relocation companies exist to help anyone looking to move and change their lifestyle because having trustworthy and professional assistance is priceless. If there’s anything you feel to be overwhelming or difficult, don’t hesitate to contact us and get help from trained movers.
There are a few essential parts of relocation that are free and go into the standard relocation option. The main factor that dictates the cost is the household inventory list that you provide to the customer support team.
Other factors that can determine the cost of relocation are distance, season, and any extra service you choose that can be booked for an additional fee. Of course, as soon as you contact our customer support and talk to someone who can give you more detailed information, you’ll also know which cost to expect.
The one guarantee we can provide is that nothing besides the item list can determine the standard relocation price. This list can be altered before relocation day, and the price will adjust accordingly.
As mentioned above, we provide services for an additional cost and others that go into the standard relocation package. Our cross-country moving policy is to be transparent and open about everything that comes for a fee, but if you’re more interested in the free services, you’ll be happy to know the list is long enough to put a smile on your face.
The first and probably the most important service that falls under standard relocation is handling the basic furniture and appliances – from the couch and chairs to the washer and dryer. Long-distance moving services may include packing all items you put on the household inventory list, but getting all the essentials packed and unpacked is a fundamental part of relocating.
When you arrive at the new home, our movers will unload and unpack the very same furniture and appliances and even put them in the appropriate rooms. This is great because otherwise, you have packing options that are charged according to the amount, but no matter what, at least you’ll have your essentials right where they belong.
We all know that there is no relocation without a relocation truck, so this service is also part of the standard relocation package. Of course, there has to be something to transport, so everything you add to the inventory list will end up in the truck.
Loading the truck can be a more complicated matter than it seems. It isn’t just about placing boxes into a storage trailer. Arranging the furniture and boxes to fit perfectly, without colliding during transport, is the kind of thing we train our relocation crews for.
Before you send us your quote request, we are sure you have more questions about our company and how we go about our business. Since we can’t tell you how much it costs to move a three-bedroom house before you fill out a quote and send us your inventory list, here are some FAQs that should show you the way around the often mysterious world of long-distance relocations.
We strive to do our business transparently. Therefore, we always point out that we form our prices based on the inventory list provided by our clients. We offer guaranteed prices that aren’t susceptible to any hidden expenses. And we respect ourselves and our clients too much to low-ball them and charge more than we agreed. Once you get our offer for your list, you can add or remove things from the list up to one day before the moving day.
When it comes to this, keep in mind that a local move is a relocation within a 50-mile radius in the same state. Therefore interstate moves can also be considered local, but everything on a distance above 50-100 miles is considered a long-distance move. If you’re not sure what your relocation classifies as, give us a call and we’ll explain in more detail.
A lot of our clients are hesitant at first about whether or not they want to use storage. Perhaps you have not found your ideal home yet, or it is not ready for you to move in? You want to do some painting and remodeling before all the boxes get in? Then this is the perfect service for you. The use of our local storage is free of charge for the first 30 days, without any obligation to continue using it and pay anything after that.
There are some items that not just us, but any other moving company out there won’t transport, and it is important to be aware of that to avoid any inconveniences on your moving day. This includes, among other things, hazardous materials, chemicals, explosives, living organisms, and flammable things. If you are not sure if something falls into these categories, feel free to contact our sales representatives and be on the safe side.
The ideal inventory list would contain all the items you want our movers to move, including their rough measurements, which are very helpful, especially for bulky items. In case some of your items require custom crating, we also offer those services.
Flat Price provides all the necessary supplies such as bubble wrap, boxes, mattress covers, wrapping and packing papers, but they are available only as a part of our partial or full packing service; we do not sell or rent them separately.
We are aware that, when paying for relocation services, our client wants to feel secure that their belongings will be handled with care, and that their items will be insured in case of any mishap. Whether you are moving furniture or transporting your car, your items are covered.
In some instances, when a client has a large amount of stuff, we will send our representative to help compile a precise inventory list and perform an in-home estimate. However, our company is currently able to offer this service only in Los Angeles, San Francisco, and New York. Our clients in other cities can perform a video estimate with the help of their smartphone.
