How to compare Seattle moving companies for long distance trips


From Advertiser Puget Sound Moving:

Planning for your move makes for an exciting time. Especially when it comes to long distance residential moves, the idea of starting a new life in a faraway place is an attractive one. However, in order to start that new life off on the right foot, you want to carefully choose a Seattle moving company that can take care of the move in a trustworthy, professional manner.

When you’re shopping for long distance movers, you want to take some time to compare the businesses that offer this service and decide which one represents the best value for your needs. Not all movers are made equally, as anyone who has ever lost a valuable possession or heirloom when moving can tell you.

When choosing a mover for a long-haul trip, pay attention to the following factors:

  • Do They Share Trucks? Truck sharing saves money for moving companies. However, it also introduces the potential for misplacing customers’ possessions into the process. The longer the distance is to your destination, the more stops and starts there will be on the way and the greater the chance is that at some point one of your belongings will accidentally be left at someone else’s new home.
  • Does Each Move Have One Moving Team? When one moving team takes care of loading, transporting and unloading your belongings, the risk of damage or item misplacement is very low. When multiple teams coordinate to make the move happen, there is a much greater chance that one of the hand-off team members accidentally damages an item or forgets about it because none of them actually packed or loaded anything.
  • Is Transport Direct or With En Route Drop-offs and Pick-ups? A highly professional moving company will insist on direct, non-stop transport. Just like truck sharing saves money without offering any value to the customer, so does route-sharing.
  • Is A Specific Delivery Date Guaranteed? Many van line services offer a range of dates for delivery, generally within a 5-day period. When planning a move into a new city, it really helps to know that your belongings are going to show up exactly when you expect them.
  • Who Do You Call When Things Go Wrong? Delivery date missed? Item damaged? Simply wondering where your items are and want someone to tell you? Choose a moving company that delegates a single office for your entire move so that you always have one point of contact for your concerns—don’t get caught up in a bureaucratic turnaround calling three or four different offices all around the country to get a single question answered.

These are just some of the concerns you should bring up when choosing a reliable moving company in Seattle, WA. You can learn more about the subject by clicking here and seeing how Puget Sound Moving compares to your typical van line service.
