It is important to do your research when selecting a provider for any move, but when planning for a long distance moving company, you’ll want to make sure you select a mover that is experienced and can help get your family into their new home with minimal headaches and hold ups. Not sure where to begin? Here are some tips about what to look for in a long distance mover!
Ask for Referrals
Ask family and friends if they have any recommendations. They will be honest about their experience and most people you know have moved at least once.
Another great resource when moving far away can be to ask your Realtor. They will be familiar with the area and any local options. Recommendations and referrals don’t always have to be from people you know, you can also read online reviews.
Get Multiple Estimates
Getting estimates from multiple sources can help you determine if they are reasonable for your move. Don’t forget to take benefits and add-on services into consideration. Things like number of crew members, type of insurance, supplies and specialty equipment can impact the price, so make sure that these line items are compared across your estimates to ensure they are truly quoting the same type of move. ADSI Moving Systems offers in-home and virtual estimates. Use these tips to help compare moving estimates.
Ask About Valuation Protection
Moving companies should offer standard valuation protection at no extra charge. The basic level of protection means your goods are covered at $0.60 per pound. If your mover doesn’t offer this, or something similar, you may want to consider other options. In addition, many full-service relocation companies offer full-valuation coverage options or special coverage for high-value inventory items. Make sure you’re familiar with all your options before making a decision about which type of moving protection is right for you.

Many moving companies offer multiple moving service options. Simple moves can include just moving boxes from one home to another, while a full service move includes much more. Think services like
- In-home estimates
- Dedicated moving coordinators
- Packing services
- Local, regional, national and international transportation
- Furniture placement
- Flat surface unpack
- Debris haul away
ADSI Moving Systems offers many residential moving services for local, long distance, international, and corporate employee relocations.
