Long Distance Movers
As far as moving is concerned, long-distance moving is surely one of the more difficult types. From a logistics perspective, there is a lot more planning that needs to be done and hence this option proves to be more costly. At Salt Lake Moving Pros we consider moving to be a personal experience, even more so when you are moving across the country. Seeing that moving can often be a bag of mixed emotions, we strive to make sure that our customers have the best experience possible. So if you are planning a long-distance move, then let us help you make that the best experience that it can be.
What is Considered Long Distance?
Many people enquire as to what is considered long distance moving. Moving locally is considered a short distance within the same city or metropolitan. When moving intrastate, that can still be considered a short or a long-distance move, as some states are absolutely massive. Generally, however, long distance moving entails crossing state lines. If you are moving cross country, then you are in for one hell of a ride. Luckily for you, that is a ride that Salt Lake Moving Pros have done time and time again, so you, your family, and your belongings are in good hands.
The Long Haul
Moving interstate is the terminology used to describe crossing state lines. Interstate moves, by definition, of course, cost more money. This means that the intricate nature of your move will be broken down into various surcharges. Fuel cost is based on the number of miles that are traveled. Line haul charges will be determined by the weight of all your belongings. In this scenario, the empty moving truck is weighed and subtracted from the weight of your belongings. This is how the price is determined. It is important to understand how these surcharges are broken down so that you know exactly what you are paying for.
Planning Your Move
When moving intrastate or interstate, we find that the most important thing you can do during this period is to plan accordingly. We suggest starting with a packing checklist. The reality is that it is difficult to cross state lines again because you forgot your favorite pair of shoes. We also recommend that you do a 'first night at the new place checklist.' Getting to your new destination is a tiring act, and the last thing you need is to have to look for your toothbrush and deodorant. These two simple checklists will just make the overall experience of moving a little better.
