These guys were awesome. I was really stressed about the move and all my plant babies (some 8-9ft tall) and we had zero casualties!! They even helped me put together a patio day bed that I had delivered to the new place… can’t say enough great things about them!! They also never stopped… 7am- 5pm no breaks and 3 flights of stairs at my new apartment I don’t know how they did it!! 11/10 best moving experience I’ve ever had THANK YOU

How Much Do Long-Distance Moves Cost?

Moving companies define long-distance moves as moves that cross state lines. This is why many people call long-distance moves state-to-state moves or interstate moves. Cross-country moves are also long-distance moves, though not all long-distance moves travel across the nation.

The cost of a long-distance move varies significantly based on many different factors. Moving across the country and moving one state over are going to have significantly different costs. Besides distance, the size of the home or office, the number and the weight of items all influence moving costs. According to MoveBuddha, “The typical cost for hiring movers in Sacramento, CA is $130 per hour with a total move cost ranging from $483 to $4,293, on average. If you’re moving out of California, the cost of hiring long-distance movers in Sacramento really depends on where you’re moving.” Because of this wide range, transparency in pricing is vital. This is why we recommend getting at least three different moving quotes. By doing this, you can save time and money by easily figuring out the best moving company for you.

What Services Are Included In Long-Distance Moves, and What Services Cost Extra?

Long-distance moves generally include services like loading and unloading, furniture disassembly and reassembly, and transportation. However, extra services such as packing, estate cleanout, and warehouse storage usually cost extra. Full-service movers normally provide all of these services and more. explains, “If it’s part of a move, your full service movers can take care of it for you.

How Do Sacramento Moving Companies Protect My Belongings During a Long-Distance Move? Can a Moving Company Pack and Unpack for Me?

Professional moving companies use padded moving vans and trucks, moving blankets and dollies, and carefully trained staff for loading and unloading. Most full-service moving companies offer packing and unpacking services, though they come at an additional cost. These precautions are essential to ensure that your belongings are not damaged during the move. Additionally, using professional packing services can significantly reduce the risk of items breaking or getting lost. adds, “Having a handful of trained packers means that your belongings get prepared for transport significantly faster than you could do on your own. “

What is Moving Valuation, and How Will It Cover Lost or Damaged Items?

In the moving industry, “valuation” refers to coverage for lost or damaged items, similar to insurance. Limited liability coverage compensates 60 cents per pound per item. On the other hand, full value protection provides more comprehensive coverage for the fair market value.

Limited liability comes at no extra cost, as mandated by federal law, but does not satisfy the needs of all customers. This is why most moving companies offer more valuation options at an additional cost. The most common valuation option provided in the industry is full value protection. The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration states, “Under Full Value Protection, your mover is responsible for the replacement value of lost or damaged goods in your entire shipment.” If an item is damaged or lost during the move, in this case, the moving company will repair, replace, or refund the fair market value of all affected items.

Yolo Transfer Moving & Storage offers limited liability coverage and full value protection, allowing customers to choose the best coverage that fits their needs. We believe in providing comprehensive options to ensure our customers’ peace of mind during their move. To learn more about moving valuation, check out Bekins Van Line’s Moving Protection and Valuation page. “Our goal is to provide you with the best coverage options to suit your specific needs and ensure a worry-free move,” assures our owner, Josh Tracy.

How Long Does a Long-Distance Move to or from Sacramento Typically Take? How Does a Moving Company Determine the Delivery Date?

Various factors determine the timeline of a long-distance move. These factors include the size of your home or office, the distance of the move, and the number of items. MoveBuddha states, “Unfortunately, there isn’t one simple answer. The reality is, the time it takes to move depends on how much stuff you have, where you’re going, and how you decide to move.” Depending on these factors, long-distance moves can span from two to three days to two to three weeks on average. To determine a delivery date, timely planning and coordination with the moving company can help ensure a smooth process.
