How Does Long Distance Moving Work?
Whether you are moving the whole family or just yourself, moving is a lot of work and can be extremely stressful. To make a long distance move, you have to pack up your belongings, decide what is not worth bringing to the new home, and find a moving company available to help you move. Similar to our local moving services, our team of friendly, efficient movers are available to be there for you every step of the way for your out of state move. To ensure your move is stress-free and runs smoothly, we provide the following moving services for all long distance moves:
- Packing/Unpacking: It doesn’t matter if you need the whole house packed away, or just the kitchen, our highly trained packers can get your belongings packed away safely and ready for transport in one day. Our packing services include our team bringing the packing materials needed to complete the packing, such as boxes, scissors, and tape as well as labels to ensure all boxes are labeled properly and clearly. When unpacking everything in your new house, our team will dispose of and recycle all boxes and packing supplies.
- Loading/Unloading: When relocating, leave the hard labor to the pros. Our professional residential movers are trained and experienced when it comes to moving items of all sizes, including furniture and home appliances. We will strategically load or unload the moving truck to ensure everything fits and will be transported safely. Our team will also help with any disassembly that is required to move large household goods such as beds and tables.
- Moving Service: While your household items, valuables, and personal belongings are in transit from your old home, we will take all precautions to get them to your new home with no damages. If you have any concerns during the move, you will have direct access to our team. Additionally, our team will provide you with updates throughout the route so there are no surprises.
- Storage & Moving Supplies: If you are not taking everything you own with you, we can help you store what it is staying behind safely in our Greensboro, NC storage facility. We offer short-term and long-term storage options to accommodate those who are moving a long distance temporarily. For those who would rather do the packing themselves, we sell all packing supplies at great rates to help keep your move affordable.
Long Distance Moving Services FAQ
How far do you travel for long distance moves?
Though we are located in Greensboro, NC, our professional moving team can help you move anywhere in the southeast.
Do you offer insurance for long distance moves?
Movers are not insurance agents. Unfortunately, we cannot sell insurance. However, unlike some other moving companies, Marathon Moving Company is fully licensed and insured. We provide customers with a couple of different protection packages.
Types of Value Protection include:
- Basic Value Protection – This comes standard with the move and values your furniture at 60 cents per pound if anything becomes damaged.
- Full Value Protection – With FVP, the client will state the value of their load at the start of the move. This type of protection protects you against a total loss and makes sure that all damaged items will be eligible for full replacement value.
Are there items that cannot be packed for interstate moves?
Regardless if your move is a local or a long distance move, the following items can never be packed:
- Flammables, combustibles, or any other hazmat type material
- Guns and ammunition
- All liquids must be used or poured out before transport to prevent spillage
How far in advance do you recommend customers book their move?
We ask customers to book their move at least 2 weeks in advance, especially for long distance moves as there is more planning and staff involved. However, we do our best to accommodate last minute emergency moves.
Will customers have access to shipment tracking?
At Marathon Moving Company, we believe in good old fashion communication. The same moving crew that packs and loads the truck for the move is the same crew that will unload and unpack once everything arrives. Additionally, our moving truck drivers always exchange their phone number so that you can contact them at any time throughout the moving process.
