It is a well-known fact that long-distance moving is an often-complex process. Selecting a reputable moving company and familiarizing yourself with long-distance moving terms will help in lowering your relocation costs and in reducing stress levels. This Alpha Moving and Storage article concentrates on some of the most important tips and advice our relocation experts have to offer.
Beginning your Moving Preparations
Most experts will tell you to start preparing for your move at least six weeks in advance. Don’t wait for the very last moment to contact movers. Reputable service providers are likely to be booked solid at least two weeks in advance.
For lowering your relocation costs, we highly advise that you pack non-breakables, such as books and files, on your own. You can contact your Alpha Moving and storage representative to check for box delivery options and specials.
Searching for Moving Companies
You don’t have to search for your movers online. Sometimes, good old-fashioned referrals are the best way to go. Ask your family, friends, and neighbors if they can recommend a moving service provider.
If you are searching online, be sure to search for local moving service providers in your area and to verify each and every mover’s reputation.
Understanding how Long Distance Moving Works
Long-distance moving is charged either by weight or space, as customers need to pay for the relative part of the delivery trailer their shipment will occupy. We recommend that you call our Alpha Moving and Storage sales and service center for an in-depth explanation regarding long-distance basic charge units, additional costs, and storage options.
