Moving Tips

Here is what you need to know about moving and hiring movers

Local vs. Long Distance Moving

A Local move is a move that does not cross state lines. Local moves are also referred to as "Intrastate" moves. A Long Distance move is a move that crosses state lines. Long Distance moves are also referred to as "Interstate" moves. Some moving companies only provide Local moves and some only provide Long Distance moves, and then there are some that can do both. Know what type of move you are making so you can select the appropriate type of mover.

Mover Licenses

Local movers are regulated by the state they operate in. To find out if your Local mover has the necessary licensing, check with your states' moving authority. Long Distance movers are regulated by the FMCSA (Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration). Check their website to ensure your Long Distance mover has the necessary licensing. And remember, never use a mover who is not properly licensed.

Moving Insurance

There are 3 main types of moving insurance. "Released Value" is the most basic type and is offered to you by your mover. It is free, but is extremely limited in what it covers - you are only guaranteed 60 cents per pound on lost or damaged items. "Full Value" gives you full protection on your belongings and is offered to you by your mover. This plan naturally comes with a higher expense. Make sure to ask your mover if they have any limitations on this plan, as some may limit their liability on expensive items. "Third Party" is insurance you can get from an outside insurance company. The coverage can range from limited to extensive, and can cost you a little to a lot.

Beware of Moving Brokers

A Moving Broker is not a mover, rather, they outsource your move to a real moving company. The risks of using a Moving Broker is that you do not always know beforehand which mover will be moving you. This presents obvious problems - Moving Brokers may book your move with an unlicensed mover, an inexperienced mover, and/or an unprofessional mover. When moving day comes you don't want to be surprised with a mover like this.

Types of Moving Estimates

With Long Distance movers there are 3 main types of moving estimates. With"Non-binding" estimates you may be required to pay no more than 10% above the initial estimate, but you can also pay less if the by the end of the move your movers see the initial estimate was too high. "Binding" estimates require you to pay exactly the amount provided in the initial estimate, even if the price should have been higher or lower. Then there are "Not-To-Exceed" estimates which caps your payment at a maximum amount, but you still could pay less if the final cost comes below the maximum amount.
