A long distance move from Miami isn’t something you want to tackle alone. Sure, you could rent a truck and try it on your own, but long distance moving companies, like A-1 Fargo, have the needed experience to make sure that your move goes smoothly.
Full-service Moving Company Options
There is more to it then packing some boxes. You want to know that everything will arrive safely and that someone is there to help with some of the little unexpected things that can pop up.
Tips for Hiring a Long Distance Mover
When it comes to long distance moving, Miami residents have a lot to keep in mind. Here are a few tips that can help you make a smooth transition.
Research Moving Companies
You need a moving company with experience. We’ve been the top Miami long distance movers since 1949. We are fully licensed and insured, and have a number of qualifications that make us the best bet for your big move. Our qualifications include ProMover Status and membership in the American Moving and Storage Association.
Get In-Home Estimates
If a moving company tries to give you an estimate online or over the phone the keep in mind that the estimate could be way off, and you don’t need any unpleasant surprises like a much higher invoice. Instead, get an in-home estimate. This allows the moving company to provide an accurate estimate of all your moving costs.
Pack for the New House
Unless the layout of your new home is identical to your current home then pack for the new house. If something was in the bedroom at the old house, but will be in the family room at the new house, then pack it in a box labeled “family room." This will make the process of unpacking much easier.
Many people find that they need to store some of their items before or after a move. A local storage company may not be the best choice because you’ll have to figure out how to get your items to your new location. Instead, our long-distance movers – Miami’s best – have a convenient storage solution. Our portable containers can be packed at your old house and then safely stored in our secure facility for as long as you need. When you’re ready, your belongings will be shipped right to your new door.
Take This Chance to Downsize
If you’ve been thinking about getting rid of some things, a move is a great time to do it. As you’re packing, donate or toss things that you don’t use anymore. Downsizing will help you get a fresh start in your new home.
Consider the Season
Our Miami long distance moving company is there for you any time of year, but it’s important to consider the season when planning your move. A few things to consider are your children’s school schedule, the weather at the new location, and the cost of moving during the off-season vs. during the prime season.
