Interstate Moving: Everything You Need to Know

Moving to another state or across the country is a completely different experience from moving across town. There are far more issues to consider like where you will buy a house or rent an apartment, where your children will go to school, how you will get your valuable belongings to this state safely, and where you will store items you may not have space for anymore. Luckily, with full-service moving professionals like Armstrong – Huntsville, you can focus less on the details of how your things will be moved and more on the exciting new milestones ahead of you!

Below, we’ve answered questions to help you know what to expect when moving out of state with an experienced interstate mover.

When should I book my move?

As soon as possible! We can’t stress enough how important it is to get your team and your moving plan nailed down quickly. Moving peak season, May through September, is when most people want to take advantage of summer break and good weather to make their big move. Because of that, many of the best moving teams are snatched up quickly. Getting your professional full-service movers committed and scheduled as soon as you know your ideal move date will help you secure your desired date and move service, not ending up with a less than ideal moving experience.

How do I get a move estimate?

In order to get a move estimate, your reputable moving team should first conduct an in-home or virtual move survey. For an in-home survey, one of our PPE-equipped team members will visit your home to assess the space and take a detailed inventory of what needs to be moved. With our virtual move survey option, an Armstrong team member will connect with you through video chat so you can give a guided tour of your home and discuss all the details to make sure you’re getting the exact services and specifications that you need.

Every home is unique, but every move needs the same questions answered–What are you moving? What is the location and size of your origin and destination? What services and materials do you need from us? Once your home is evaluated and these questions are answered, we’ll know just what services you’ll need and be able to provide you with an accurate move estimate.

Is full-service packing available?

One of the best benefits of having a professional interstate moving team is not having to worry about the risks of undertaking a long-distance move alone which can include accidents, unforeseen expenditures and stressful unpredictability. This includes packing your own belongings. Full-service packing means no stress for you and your belongings are safely packed by professionals.

With Armstrong, we will carefully assess, pack, wrap and protect all of your household goods in preparation for their time in the moving truck. Armstrong has decades of experience in the moving industry from packing and moving entire warehouses to moving families state-to-state. We have the tools and experience to take care of your belongings like they were our own.

You’re home, now what? 

Moving in is the best part! Once you and all of your belongings make it to the final destination, your professional move team will bring all of your things into your space, place furniture and boxes in the rooms in which they belong, and set you up for success in your new home! No more lugging sofas out of trucks dangerously or wondering where the box containing all of your dishes and towels went—you can find your things the second you need them and get ready to feel at home faster than ever!

What about storage?

Do you have important, large or valuable items that you need stored safely in your new state? Armstrong has the storage solutions for you! If you’re planning to downsize your living space or relocate any items you currently have in storage, you’ll need to arrange storage services at your new location.
