Long Distance

Our expertise at planning moves and managing logistics allows us to easily support clients moving anywhere within the U.S.
Move Plan interstate long distance movers. interstate long distance movers. interstate long distance movers.

We offer two special services for long distance moves:

A weekly shuttle to popular destinations. If you are moving to LA, San Francisco, Miami or Chiacgo, you can reserve space on one of our weekly shuttles and save money.

Non-stop service in an exclusive truck. Most long-distance moves are done in shared trucks that make several stops en route. If you are in a rush, or just want non-stop service, we can provide it.

Otherwise, our process for long distance moves is much like our process for local moves. It starts with an inventory and ends with you happily moved into your new home.

1. We create an inventory together
We start by working with you to create a thorough inventory of the goods you want moved. No detail is too small.

2. We add any extra services
We offer a range of optional services to make your move easy. You may never have thought of some of the services we offer. We have carpenters on staff for crating needs. Locksmiths, cleaning service, and IT experts can be called in to take care of details in your new home or old.

3. We issue a Move Plan with a Flat Rate price
Once we understand the details, we’ll issue a comprehensive move plan describing the move in detail–who, what, when, where and what. This document will lock in your flat rate price.

4. We pack or you do
If you are packing yourself, we can recommend the proper type and amount of materials and deliver them in advance. Or we can take care of the packing and unpacking for you. Some items are already accounted for in our flat rate:

  • lamps
  • artwork
  • hanging clothes
  • TVs and electronics

5. You take care of building details

Many buildings have specific requirements for insurance and the use of elevators and loading docks. These details are up to you. Make sure you contact building management well in advance of the move and let us know anything we need to know.

6. We start moving
Our team arrives at the scheduled time on your moving day and gets to work. They:

  • protect corners and floors
  • wrap and protect all listed furniture
  • disassemble any items that need it
  • pack electronics and art
  • load the truck

7. We meet you at your destination

When you’re ready for us, we’ll put your items where you tell us in your new home. We leave when you are completely satisfied.
