Long Distance Moving Estimate
The long-distance moving process begins with receiving a quote after a detailed survey of all items to be moved. This is followed by being assigned a moving specialist who will guide you through the entire process and help tailor the services to your needs. If opting for packing services, professional packers will come a couple of days before the move to meticulously pack all your belongings. On moving day, a skilled crew will arrive to load the items into the truck, ensuring that everything is secure for transport. Your belongings are then transported to the new home, and the unloading process is carefully overseen. Throughout the move, vital documents such as the Order of Service and the Bill of Lading will be provided, keeping a clear record of all services and costs. Finally, the move is concluded with a final walkthrough and confirmation with the team leader, making sure that everything is in place and that all terms of the moving agreement have been met.

Long-distance moves can vary significantly in cost based on factors such as distance, the weight of the items being moved, how far you are moving, and any extra services required.

Generally, an out-of-state move includes the transportation of your belongings, loading and unloading, and basic liability coverage. Extra services like packing and unpacking, special handling for fragile or difficult-to-move items, storage solutions, and extra valuation coverage are usually considered add-ons and cost extra.

Packing supplies play a crucial role in protecting belongings during a long-distance move. Your packers should be expertly trained, as well as making use of specialized boxes and moving blankets, wrapping up your items carefully. Your movers should use a dolly for careful loading and unloading, as well as a professional moving truck with the right padding to keep your belongings protected.
Turner Moving & Storage takes extra care with belongings, offering packing and unpacking services that use quality packing supplies. This ensures the highest level of protection for items, whether they are precious family heirlooms or essential everyday household goods.
In accordance with government regulation, all moving companies must provide valuation coverage at 60 cents per pound per item. There are generally two types of valuation for a move: Limited Liability Coverage, which is the minimum required by law, and Full Value Protection, which provides more comprehensive coverage with full reimbursement, repair, or replacement for all damaged items. Not all movers offer Full Value Protection, but most do, as they realize that this is not enough coverage for many people moving.
Turner Moving & Storage complies with these regulations, offering both Limited Liability Coverage and Full Value Protection options. You can also declare your high-value belongings as Items of Extraordinary Value, which are items worth over $100 per pound per item. Be sure to speak with your dedicated moving specialist about this.
An out-of-state move can take varying amounts of time, depending on factors like distance and load size. You can expect your long-distance move to take about 3-14 days. For an especially far move, such as one over 1700 miles, you can expect it to take up to three weeks. However, this can vary quite a bit, so be sure to communicate with your movers about how long the move is expected to take.

Long-distance moves often have rules and restrictions relating to items that cannot be transported, timing, and legal requirements. This includes restrictions on transporting perishable goods, hazardous materials, cosmetics, and other interstate regulations based on your destination state. For licensing, it is required that your movers, or their van line, holds a USDOT license. Depending on what state you are moving to, they may also need an MC license.
