“I was terrified!” Tara stood in front of her small Spokane home, arms crossed. “You hear all these horror stories about long distance moving services, but I must have lucked out! These guys are great!”
There was more than luck at play in Tara’s move. Like many contemplating a cross-country move, she decided to use a long distance moving service. Unlike many, however, she didn’t pick her company based on price alone. Tara did her research.
“Sure!” she said. “I must have called twenty long distance moving services. I had all these questions. I wanted to know what type of insurance did the company have. Would our homeowner’s insurance supplement the long distance moving services’ coverage? Did the long distance moving services have all the required licenses?” Long distance moving services are regulated by the US DOT, state DOTs, and other authorities. “I wanted references, lots of references.”
References are often the best way to determine how well a long distance moving service will perform for you. Bear in mind that long distance moving services, like any business, are most likely to pass along favorable references. You’ll want to go a step further and search online rating sites and the Better Business Bureau. If a long distance moving service has a long string of complaints filed with the Better Business Bureau, they’re not the long distance moving service you want.
“Finally,” Tara said, “I had each long distance moving service spell out for me exactly what they did, and how much it cost. I knew what I was getting into and what to expect.” This step also allowed Tara to save money by doing some tasks herself, and to take steps her long distance moving service recommended. “I never would have thought of a complete household inventory,” she said, “But now that I’m here, I’m glad I have one. It’s just one more thing the long distance moving service did to make life easier.”
