Long Distance Moving

L

Moving further than just across town? You probably think you have to go it alone. No company is going to help with a cross-country, long distance move, right?

Wrong!


TDY Moving and Storage are the NYC movers that help clients with long distance moving jobs all the time! If you are planning a big move to New York City, call us to schedule pickup and delivery! Or, if you are moving from here to someplace else, we can help you with that, too.

You have enough to think about when you begin your new adventure in a different part of the country, or even just a few states away. There’s no reason you should also have to rent a moving van (or a few), pack it up, and drive it yourself to your destination…especially if you have a family to think about.

Your move will most likely be a very big event in your life, and while these big moments can be very special, they are also sometimes very stressful. As a NYC moving service, we make every effort to take the stress off of you so that you can concentrate on how exciting your move really is!

Skeptical clients are amazed to learn that TDY routinely handle moves to or from anywhere in the country. If you are moving anywhere along the East Coast, we can handle all the details so that you don’t have to worry about a thing. And if you’re moving all the way to sunny LA, that’s not a problem, either!

How It Works

We can help you coordinate every aspect of your move, from packing to transporting all your belongings to moving your cars, boats or other vehicles. While we don’t actually do the ‘door-to-door’ delivery, we have ways to ensure that your move goes smoothly, no matter where you’re going!

In some situations, we will do your long distance move ourselves. This is the case if your move is to (or from) a nearby state. You will still have full access to our other services, including packing and storage services.

Other times, we will coordinate with partner companies to complete your long distance move. This requires organization on our part, but you don’t have to do a thing. We’ll arrange everything, and we’ll be sure to update you about every detail of your long distance move using a partner company. We only work with top-rated moving companies that are as professional as we are, so we guarantee that you will have a pleasant experience.

The little details that we effortlessly take care of are one reason that customers come to us for their long distance moves. For example, we can advise you about which items to let us haul and which ones you should keep with you so that they will be handy upon your arrival at your new home.

Also, because we collaborate with sister companies to get your belongings moved thousands of miles, it’s likely that your boxes and other items will be loaded and unloaded two or more times. They could also tip over or get placed on the wrong side when a new crew loads them into a different truck. That’s why we make sure from the very beginning that everything is packed up securely.

It’s things like these that keep our clients’ belongings safe and sound during interstate moves.

Cost of Long Distance Moving

As you would expect, long distance moves can be costly, especially if you choose the wrong company. You should check out several different companies when you are preparing for a long distance move by looking at their online reviews and their web site. You can even call them up and ask a few questions. At this point, it might be helpful to create a spreadsheet where you can plug in information about each company. The spreadsheet idea seems excessive to some people, but when you consider what an undertaking an interstate move is, it really is a good idea.

From all of your original choices, narrow the field to 2 or 3 NYC movers. You should request an estimate from the companies on your short list, then compare the quotes and see how they match up. The most important thing about getting quotes is that you see what charges are included and which ones are possible. You could rack up a huge bill with a company that gives a low estimate but then sneaks in hidden charges after you have signed a binding contract with them.

Examine all parts of the estimates carefully. When it’s all said and done, it is entirely possible that the company you choose will not be the lowest priced. You have a lot of factors to consider, and finding the right fit for your long distance move is paramount.

Your final estimate should take into account how far you are moving, how much you have to move, and the weight of your items. Every single possession won’t be put on a scale, obviously, but if you have a grand piano, for example, prepare to pay a little extra.

As reputable NYC Movers, we strive to keep our prices as low as possible, but we also push the limits of customer service higher with each job, taking feedback from clients and improving in any area we can. We are constantly looking for new ways to serve our customers, and we only hire skilled, experienced movers and staff in order to provide you with the very best service possible. In addition to an excellent staff, we also have clean, dependable equipment that you won’t think twice about packing your belongings in for the long ride.

You’ll find that, with us, you get the perfect combination of great prices and great service.

3. Honest Estimates

There’s nothing worse than a commercial moving company that runs up the bill after they’ve given you a bargain-basement estimate. (We don’t think so, anyway!)

Because we believe it’s unfair and unethical to give an inaccurate estimate, this NYC moving company will never do that to you. We’ll give you what’s called a ‘binding quote.’ In our business – and other service-oriented businesses as well – a binding quote is a maximum price that we will charge you to complete your commercial move.

The final cost could (and probably will) be less than this quote, but it gives us some wiggle room just in case issues come up during the move that we nor you could have anticipated, but the quote also protects you, the customer, from getting an outrageous bill that you never expected when the move is all said and done.

At TDY Moving and Storage, we do the best we can to give you an honest estimate only after we’ve visited your current location to see exactly what items will need to be moved. We can not only tell you how much we think it will cost, but we can also give you a good idea of the time frame needed to do your commercial move.

Other Things to Look For in a Moving Company

Another reason that we are your best choice for long distance moving to or from the New York area is that we are fully insured. Insurance is the only way to make sure that you, the client, are protected from incurring fees – even lawsuits – in the case of an accident. Our insurance covers the entire long distance move, from start to finish. You’ll never be liable for an accident that occurs during the moving process.

We have insurance to cover every move that we do, but it’s even more valuable to you if you are moving cross-country or even a few states away.

TDY as your NYC movers should be your long distance moving company for many reasons. Here are just a few:

  • We’re reliable.
    We stick to a tight schedule so that you will always know when your belongings will be arriving. If a moving company makes a promise, they should keep it. A company that doesn’t make good on its guarantees will soon earn a negative reputation very quickly.
    TDY Moving and Storage has an excellent reputation among our previous clients because we do what we say, every time. Reliability is probably the number one factor to consider in a long distance move.
  • We’re honest.
    The estimate that you receive will be the one that we stick to. No surprises and no running up expenses at the last minute.
    Our honesty extends to other areas besides financial ones. If, by some chance, we don’t provide a service that you need, we will tell you up front. We’ll never attempt to move an item that we don’t feel qualified to move.
    This behavior is not only dishonest, but it is dangerous. Other NYC movers might tell you that they can move anything, only to ruin a valuable item because they really didn’t have the experience necessary to get the job done.
  • We are experienced.
    We can handle your long distance move no matter where you are going and regardless of what time of year it is. Believe it or not, the time of year can greatly affect your move. Peak travel times include summer months and weekends, as you would imagine.
    The first and last of the month are common times for clients to request our services, since most leases begin and end at these times. Additionally, the presence of snow, ice and storms can slow travel down and make your move almost impossible.
    Our experience stretches over decades and dozens of faithful employees who know that doing a job well is the best way to get repeat business through word of mouth referrals.

What does all this information amount to? It should tell you that we are very good at what we do!

If you live on Staten Island, in the Bronx, Queens, Brooklyn, or in downtown Manhattan – and you’re looking to make a long distance move, we can help! Similarly, if you are preparing for an exciting move to one of these exciting suburbs of the most famous city in the whole world, we’re here for you, too!

Long distance moves don’t have to be traumatic experiences that you spend months recovering from! On the contrary, your move can be one more part of your thrilling new journey in your brand new home and city.
