Long Distance Moving Options

When you move with Great Guys, you have access to the best full-service long-distance moving companies. These movers provide unparalleled moving services, including:

Packing/Unpacking Services

Packing for a move and then unpacking after the move can be two sources of unneeded stress in your life. Many individuals and families across the country choose to leave these tedious tasks to professionals that specialize in packing valuables in a manner that ensures safe delivery from one home to the next. Professional packing can be especially beneficial for long-distance moves, during which items travel for extended periods of time over long stretches of road. The same movers who box up your belongings can also help unload and unpack your items, helping you settle into your new home faster, so you aren’t left facing a mountain of boxes for weeks to come. Great Guys Long Distance Movers can help make sure your belongings arrive in the same condition they left in by connecting you with multiple movers that offer full-service moving, including packing and unpacking services.

Furniture Moving

At first glance, you may think that moving furniture is simply an issue of having enough people to lift the heaviest items. However, if you’ve ever moved from state-to-state or across the country before, you know that there is much more to consider than simply picking the piece up and putting it on a moving truck. Besides ensuring that you do not damage the furniture or the walls of your old or new home trying to manhandle the piece around tight corners, you also need to disassemble pieces, wrap them in moving blankets, and make sure they are secured in the moving vehicle. Furthermore, during a long-distance move, it can be difficult finding friends or family that are available for the entire move. Are your loved ones willing to driving hundreds of miles with you to help you unload your dressers and credenzas? Using the services of Great Guys Long Distance Movers, you can rest assured that the moving company you pick to handle your furniture is properly vetted, insured, and licensed for interstate moving. They’ll ensure safe delivery of your furniture to your new place without you lifting a finger!

Small Moves

The moving companies that we partner with accommodate any size move, no matter how large or how small. Even if you liquidate most of your belongings, as many people do before a long-distance move, you undoubtedly have some cherished belongings that you just can’t part with. Even if you only have a small number of items that you need moved, hiring a professional mover may still be the right option for you to ensure that these invaluable items make it safely in one piece. Hiring a pro moving company can be just as important with these small moves as they are necessary for a large-scale, whole house move.

Piano Moves

Moving your cherished and expensive piano requires professionals with the right equipment. This is even more applicable if you are moving over a long distance versus just down the street. If you’re the owner of a massive, heavy piano, the last thing you want to do is try to maneuver it yourself after a long and tiresome journey. Hiring a professional mover that has the experience and proper equipment necessary to relocate your instrument will remove a large portion of stress from an already stressful long-distance relocation.

Moving Supplies

Do you need boxes, tape, furniture covers, dollies, or other moving supplies and equipment?  Unless you recently moved, it’s very unlikely that you have these items laying around your house. Instead of buying them separately, our partner relocation specialists have everything you’ll need to keep your belongings from suffering any damage during your next move. Don’t cut corners when it comes to protecting your most valued possessions.  Instead, allow Great Guys Long Distance Movers to connect you with a previously vetted, insured, and bonded moving company that always stocks the needed supplies and who can accommodate even the most unique moving requirements.

Auto/Motorcycle Shipping

Many individuals and families leave the packing and moving of their households to professional movers while they catch a plane to their new hometown. If you want to complete your move without having to drive hundreds or thousands of miles yourself, leave it to one of our auto shipping companies to get your car or motorcycle to your new home worry-free! Our partners have the equipment needed to transport your vehicle or bike safely without putting miles on it.

Apartment & Household Moves

If you are not selling or donating your belongings prior to a long-distance move, you will have a variety of furniture, small possessions, appliances, boxes, and other belongings to pack and move from one location to the other. Whether you have a studio apartment or a large household to move, Great Guys Long Distance Movers can help! All the companies that we partner with are fully equipped to provide full-service long-distance moving services, no matter how large or small the job!

Appliance Shipping

Many times, if you find yourself moving state-to-state, it can be more affordable to simply sell your appliances and replace them when you get to your new location. However, you may want to bring certain appliances, such as high-end refrigerators or washer/dryer units, with you. In this case, having a relocation specialist that can offer you affordable appliance shipping options, is very important to ensure that your move stays within the budget you have set. Our partners alo have the appropriate equipment to move heavy appliances, maneuver them into their new space, and set them up for you. Get a free quote today to see how much you can save using a professional mover to move your hard-to-replace appliances.

Art Transport & Storage

The logistics, preparation, and care that must be taken to move one-of-a-kind, expensive works of art is something that you cannot afford to take shortcuts with. During transit, one should take care to ensure that items are adequately protected from the elements and other items on the truck. Leaving the transport of important works of art to a less-than-competent mover can be devastating. Using our network of relocation companies, you can have peace of mind knowing that your art is protected from the moment the journey begins until it is delivered in its final location.

Storage

Often, people moving a long distance might need to place items in storage for a period. The need for temporary storage could be due to many different circumstances, such as the new home not being ready for immediate move-in. If you find yourself in this situation, it is important to work with a logistics specialist that maintains climate-controlled, secure storage facilities so your belongings are safe and sound until you need them. Our partner moving companies are individually vetted to ensure that they meet these high standards and hold the proper insurance necessary to replace your items if they are damaged or vandalized.  If you need storage options, get a free quote today to see how affordable it can really be!

Long Distance Movers Near Me

If you are moving long-distance, no matter if it is intrastate, interstate, or across the country, there are quite a few things to consider that make the option of hiring a professional mover more attractive.

1. Your Employer Might Pay for It

Why are you moving? The type of move matters a great deal when weighing whether to hire a mover. For instance, if you are moving due to a change or promotion in your career, you may find that managing your move while settling into a new office is too overwhelming. If your employer is paying for or reimbursing your move, you should consider hiring a professional to hammer out the complicated logistics for you.

2. Reduces the Risk of Damage to your Possessions

The nature of moving cross-country or even hours away in the same state creates the potential for damage to occur. There are also many logistical concerns when it comes to moving long distances such as the how to pack the moving truck or where to find a safe place to park the truck overnight. Hiring a professional mover to transport your possessions places these concerns in the hands of certified, insured, and bonded professionals that make it their business to ensure safe delivery of your valuable and cherished belongings.

3. They Have Necessary Equipment and Supplies

If you hire a professional relocation service to manage your move, you won’t have to worry about buying proper equipment, a breakdown while on the road, or damage to your belongings from improper packing. Plus, you won’t have to deal with the often, nerve-wracking prospect of driving a big, bulky moving truck on busy interstate roads.

4. It Reduces the Risk of Accident

Statistically speaking, the longer you are on the road, the more prone you are to have an accident.  Our partner companies comply with all state and federal DOT guidelines to ensure safety on the road and prompt and efficient delivery of your valuables. They drive large moving trucks hundreds of miles every day, so they have the expertise to safely deliver items to your new home. In the unlikely event that an accident does occur, out partner companies carry the proper insurance to reimburse you for any damage.

5. It Reduces the Stress of Your Move

Moving on your own is massively stressful. Successfully completing a long-distance move by yourself means thoroughly thinking through every detail of the transition, while you still juggle everything else in your life. Hiring a pro mover will allow you to relax and have peace of mind knowing that the only thing you need to worry about is getting yourself to your new home. You can leave the rest to the professionals.

Don’t leave it to chance.  If you are faced with an out-of-town or across-the-country relocation, get a quote from our properly vetted, licensed, bonded, and insured professional moving specialists and make sure everything from your home makes it where it needs to go!

Cheapest Long-Distance Moving Options

You have several options when it comes to choosing how to move across the country:

  1. Sell Most of Your Possessions

Many people moving long distances, especially those moving across the country or out of the country, choose to sell most of their belongings before the move. This saves on time, the cost of renting a truck or hiring movers, and can put extra cash in your pocket for unexpected expenses along the way. Then, when you arrive at your destination, you have the flexibility to examine your environment and buy what you need for your new space instead of trying to make old belongings fit in a new location. The downside to selling your belongings is that you may not get your asking price. Additionally, more than likely, you will not receive the true value for your goods, especially if you get rid of items in a hurry. When considering this option, make sure to consider how much you’ll be able to get for your current items and how much you can expect to pay to replace them after the move.

  1. Rent a Truck

If you’ve ever moved in your life, you are likely familiar with renting a moving truck. There are a few nationwide companies that rent out long-distance moving trucks for DIY moves. While this might seem like the most affordable option for transporting your stuff, what you probably don’t know is that it can literally cost you thousands of dollars by the time you have paid for the truck fee, mileage, and fuel to move your belongings out of state. Furthermore, if you are doing all the work on your own, you must contend with stops along the way, plus food, supplies, and equipment rentals. While renting a moving truck for in-town moves can be a very affordable option, you may find it just as costly as hiring a professional mover for a cross-country relocation. Additionally, you may not have anyone to help you unload when you get to your new home. These factors, along with not having to deal with the stress of a DIY move, can make hiring a pro the more attractive option.

  1. Rent a Cargo Trailer

A cargo trailer attaches to your personal vehicle via a tow hitch. This is a great option if you don’t mind driving long distances in your personal vehicle or you plan on driving to your new home anyway. You may want to consider renting a cargo trailer for your long-distance move if you need to save money, you don’t have much stuff or if your belongings do not need to be handled with extreme care. However, be aware that towing a trailer does pose the danger of “jackknifing” if you are not familiar with driving with an attached trailer or if road conditions are dangerous. If you are looking for a cheap moving solution and don’t mind the risks of towing a trailer, then renting a cargo trailer just may be what you are looking for.

  1. Rent a Moving Container

Renting a moving container is a relatively inexpensive and reliable method for moving long distance. It is an especially convenient moving solution when you need temporary storage during the move. Moving container companies typically allow customers to have a storage container dropped off at their residence on demand. Then, you can pack it at your leisure, request pick-up, and have it stored in a climate-controlled facility until you are ready to have it delivered to you. This may cost less than a full-service move and is sometimes cheaper than renting a truck. The one major downside of renting a moving container is that you’re still responsible for loading and unloading it. Just as with a rental truck, finding people to help you unload a truck hundreds of miles away from your new home can be challenging.

5. Hire Movers

If you have a long-distance move ahead of you, hiring a professional relocation service may be your best option. In addition to eliminating the headaches associated with the logistics of moving a household from one state to another, hiring a professional can ensure that your belongings are safe and secure during the moving process. Additionally, legitimate moving companies are licensed and insured, which means they assume full responsibility for your things if something does go wrong. After you consider the costs associated with other methods of moving, you might be surprised at the relative affordability of hiring a full-service moving company.

It never hurts to explore all your options when tackling a relocation of this magnitude. Price out your options, so you can choose the most affordable and convenient solution for you! Great Guys Long Distance Movers allows you to request free moving quotes from licensed and insured interstate moving companies. We can also help you get quotes on renting moving containers or auto transport services. With this information, you can make an informed decision about your method of moving.

How to Save Money When Moving Long Distance

During a long-distance move, there are many ways to save money, depending on how you choose to make the move. Each move is different, and you may require certain services that other people may not.  For instance, you may find a professional mover that is able to offer you a package price on a full-service move that is cheaper than many of the other options available. However, if you are not looking for a full-service option, consider the following strategies to trim expenses off the total cost of your move:

1. Shop around

This advice applies whether you are renting a truck, storing your goods, or hiring a full-service professional mover. By getting competing quotes from multiple services, you can compare prices, services offered, equipment used, insurance, and every other facet that is important during a move. Great Guys Long Distance Movers can help you save money on your move by providing you with multiple quotes from professional movers, all of which provide multiple levels of service and options, including full-service moves, storage rentals, and more.

2. Pack on your own

If you are hiring a moving company, consider packing your belongings yourself instead of opting for a full-service move. If you are not familiar with the best practices for packing for long-distance transit, you can find free tutorials online to ensure that your items are packed in a manner that will keep them safe during the move. Packing yourself can save you hundreds of dollars!

3. Reuse boxes

Not only can reusing boxes save you money; it is also environmentally-friendly. It takes heavy machinery and lots of resources to manufacture the cardboard used for boxes, even when recycled products are used to make them. If a box is not damaged, and the corners are intact, you can reuse a cardboard box many times over before it loses its integrity. If you are a price-conscious and green consumer, consider asking friends and family for their used boxes or sourcing your boxes from businesses that discard boxes from shipments.

4. Tow your car to save gas

If you are renting a truck to move, you can also rent a “vehicle dolly” to tow your personal vehicle. Not only does this save you potentially hundreds of dollars in fuel costs but is also prevents adding unwanted wear-and-tear to your car or truck. Even if you are hiring a professional mover, many companies offer vehicle towing as an option as well, in case you wish to use alternative means of travel, such as flying, to reach your destination while your belongings are in transit.

5. Move during the slow season

Moving companies are typically slammed during the summer months. Starting in May, as the weather warms up and kids get out of school, the moving season ramps up and doesn’t slow back down until October. During this hectic time, not only are moving services priced at a premium, but it may be difficult to find movers who can work on your schedule. If possible, try to book your move during the slow season from October through April.

6. Get rid of stuff you don’t need

Most of us have unwanted or unused items stockpiled in closets or lurking in the back of cabinets and drawers. Not only do these things clutter your home, but they cost money to move! If you have items you’ve been hanging onto that you no longer use, now is the time to get rid of them. Have a garage sale, post stuff on Craigslist, or donate to a local thrift shop. It doesn’t matter how you choose to dispose of these items, discarding them now will save you money on your move!
