Need Some Interstate Movers?
Dumbo Moving and Storage is one of the largest moving companies in New York. But that does not just mean we are limited to the tristate area; we will move your belongings to whatever state they need to go: California, Florida, Maine etc. Interstate moving (Moving from one state to another) is just as easy as moving across the street with Dumbo Moving. In this article, we are going to shed some light on interstate moving and hope to make it seem like less of a daunting.
Interstate moves begin exactly the same as local moves, with a moving quote. We recommend that that if you are having an interstate move that you take advantage of our free in-home estimate for your move provided by one of our moving consultants. One problem for interstate moves can have is making sure the timing of your items to your new house or apartment arrives when you will be able to be at their new home. So a moving consultant will help make sure the timing of everything is lined up correctly and that you will have a bed to sleep on when you arrive at your new place.
Dumbo Moving Solves Your Interstate Moving Concerns
One way we ensure that your items arrive at the same time you do is with complimentary storage. All customers with interstate moves will receive one month of free storage at our storage facility. By holding the customer’s items in storage, we can make sure that our interstate movers do not get to the destination before the customer does or vice versa. Also it allows customers to have their items and furniture packed at their own convenience, our movers can pack items or move furniture that are nonessential to the customer (then return at a later date to finish the job) and send them to storage. Or customers could drop off items at the storage facility themselves at their own convenience. Some customers, like to empty out their house bit by bit and others all our once, however you want to move your belongings and is easiest for you, is how we will plan your move.
Another problem that customers could run into for interstate movers is pricing. Rest assured that just like our local moves our interstate moves are a fixed price and you will not be charged by the hour for them. No reputable moving company would charge an interstate move by the hour, so if that is how your current long distance moved is priced, switch moving companies. Also another red flag is if your moving company charges by the weight of the items rather than how much space it takes up in their truck.
Your Items Are Safe on Your Interstate Move
Customers and potential customers also worry about the safety of the items. Depending on where the client is moving to, it may take one week to two weeks for their items and furniture to arrive at their new destination. It is commonly believed that the more time items are spending on the truck, the more likely they will get damaged. Well this isn’t the case. Furniture and items are very secured in our moving trucks and aren’t bouncing up and down at every pot hole or moving side to side at every turn. All furniture is wrapped and secured in the truck and all moving boxes are stacked and supported so they are unmovable. Since boxes are stacked, the integrity of the boxes used in interstate moves are important because you don’t want the weight of a box to crush the box below it because the box was flimsy. So we recommend that either we pack your items for you and use our own boxes or that you buy boxes from us because they are able to support a lot of weight. If you prefer to get your boxes from other sources make sure you that your boxes aren’t damp, torn or dirty.
Lastly, If you aren’t going to have an interstate move with our company but you know someone planning on relocating to another state, you can still refer people who have interstate moves. As long as they haven’t used our company before you will still receive a commission. Unlike local moves whose commission is 7%, the commission for interstate moves is 5% off their move.
