Here are some common frequent questions for hiring long distance movers;
Are you licensed for interstate moving? Moving companies MUST be licensed to move belongings across state lines.
How does your long distance move pricing work? Long distance pricing is typically a bing estimate.
Do you verify inventory? For long distance moves (or any larger move) inventory is typically verified by an in person or video survey.
Who is my point of contact? Typically, you will have a point of contact in the office and then a point of contact during the transport period.
Are there undisclosed / hidden fees? Your moving estimate should clearly state what is and is not included!
Do I have a set delivery day and time or a window? This is a major point. A delivery window typically means that you are using a broker or freight forwarder. A specific delivery day and time is ideal.
What is your security protocol during transport? All trucks should be secured and parked in safe areas.
What are your long distance employee/driver standards? Distance drivers are required to pass rigorous screening and training.
Are there subcontractors involved? Verification is necessary to ensure you know who is in possession of your belongings at all times.
Do you require a downpayment? Downpayment may be common in the days leading up to your move, given the nature of a long distance move. Cash downpayment requirements are always a red flag.
