Three questions to ask when selecting a long-distance mover

author avatar Written by Aaron Steed

Packing up and moving a long distance can be a stressful process, but it doesn’t have to be! Here at Meathead Movers, we are changing the way that long-distance moves are traditionally handled. We have heard the endless horror stories of long-distance moves that result in lost items, broken items, hidden charges and late arrivals. In our quest to revolutionize the entire moving industry, we knew we had to offer a premier long-distance moving service that was completely different from the van lines.

We always encourage our customers to do their own research, so we want to equip you with the tools you need to ensure that you’re making an informed decision. Make sure you ask your potential long-distance movers these three critical questions:

Is everyone on my move employees of your company, or are they sub-contractors and/or temp laborers?

Many long-distance movers will bring on sub-contractors or temp laborers to complete your move. Oftentimes, the people who pack your items into the truck are not the people who will be unloading those items at your final destination. This leads to confusion, missed items, and a disconnection with the customer. It’s extremely important to us at Meathead Movers to ensure the best customer experience. In order to do that, we employee clean-cut, drug-free, background-checked athletes to complete your job from start to finish.

At any point in time, will anyone else’s items be in my shipment?

Many times, long-distance movers won’t disclose the fact that your items will actually be joined by another movers’ goods. When this happens, it usually leads to delivery dates being pushed and items getting lost. Here at Meathead Movers, your belongings will always be alone and delivered in the same truck, by the same crew, on time.

What is every potential way that the cost of the move could increase?

Almost all traditional long-distance movers will charge you based on the weight of your items. It is extremely difficult for a customer to measure the weight of the items beforehand, leading to many unexpected charges. As with all of our moves, we decide on a not-to-exceed price before beginning any job. We will tell you how much your long-distance move could cost and we will not charge you a dollar more. Sometimes, it even costs you less!

Let us help you with your long-distance move to, from, or within California. With our 100% satisfaction guarantee, you won’t have to worry about any of the struggles that a traditional long-distance mover might cause.
