Long Distance Residential Movers
Long Distance Movers – Anywhere in the US
If you are planning a long-distance/interstate move, your first order of business is contacting Craig Van Lines for a comprehensive and accurate estimate of cost. We’ll gladly send a relocation counselor to your home to craft a thorough, in-home estimate. Our counselors will survey all your rooms and make a detailed inventory of all the items to be moved. He or she will ensure that all your closets, basements, attics, crawl spaces, and garden sheds, garages and even patio furniture will be accounted for. We will leave no piece of furniture unturned!
Need Packing Services?
Our moving pros can pack all your belongings and properly store them in boxes and customized crates for your long distance move. Please note that whether you choose to not use our comprehensive packing services, all your items need to be packed and ready for relocation by moving day.
Moving Process & Procedures
Once your moving tech has noted and verified all your items to be moved, he or she can then calculate the final weight of the interstate and/or long distance move. Unlike a local move, your move will be determined by weight and is also subject to state tariffs. Don’t worry though; you will only pay for the actual weight of the shipment as our truck gets weighed in before and after loading. We welcome you to be present for this process or you can receive copies of the weight documents.
We are required by law to provide you with a “Rights and Responsibilities” booklet, which is quite informative for you, the consumer. We will then discuss the availability of moving days and times, whatever promotions or discounts might be available, and the determination of the delivery date to your new home. We will also discuss logistics regarding accessibility for our equipment and truck rigs at both the starting point and the destination of your move. If any location cannot accommodate one of our rigs, a shuttle service, (usually a smaller truck), may be added as needed. Please also note that some rural locations may have approaches that are too steep or narrow to allow our larger rigs access, in which case a shuttle service will also be necessary.
On your move day our long distance moving techs will inventory and then label each item as they are loaded onto the truck. We then will drive to a weigh station to have the shipment weight determined. Our interstate driver will then communicate with you should there be any delivery date changes. He or she will also provide a 24-hour notice of their arrival within a one-hour window.
Finally, as the items are unloaded at your new destination, they will be checked off the inventory list and you will be assured then of all your items arriving safely and accounted for. Additionally, the driver will give a walk-through to ensure that all your belongings are correctly positioned in the appropriate rooms.
