If until recently moving across the country caused a lot of questions and not every company could provide long-distance movers, today, we have you covered.
Do not be mistaken to think that the task of long distance movers is only to take the furniture out of the room, load it into the truck, and on arrival at your destination just unload the shipment. Our expert long-distance movers provide a much wider range of services, in fact, completely entrusting themselves with all the hassle of organizing and conducting the cross province or cross border move.
One of the most important tasks when moving across the country is the transportation of bulky and valuable items. Long-distance moving companies provide packing and unpacking services for their clients for an extra fee. Movers will ensure that during the dismantling process, each piece of furniture is labeled and packed into the heavy duty moving blankets. Items that cannot be disassembled will also be carefully packed in bubble wrap and put in the box. Thus, the risk of damage is minimized.
Cross-border moving involves numerous kinds of belongings that are too fragile or extremely expensive. In case stretch wrap and traditional moving boxes are not suitable with the needs, moving companies will provide custom crating services. Any odd-shaped, fragile, and special belongings will be carefully wrapped and kept safe and sound from water, humidity, heat and damage. You should expect strong wooden boxes that are weather resistant securely delivered to your new home.
Clients no longer need to worry about how they can cope with the assembly and disassembly of a cumbersome sofa, dining table or kitchen equipment - for them everything will be done by professionals upon arrival.

Long-distance movers will assemble and disassemble any large and bulky items eliminating waste of time and stress improving moving experience.
Crucial part of long-distance moving is loading and unloading your belongings.Unprofessionalism here can lead to irreparable consequences. Skilled movers will use special equipment as moving straps, rubber bands, and dollies to safely move items from your home to the truck. In addition, some buildings do not have freight elevators, so you have to load and unload items, including bulky ones, down the stairs. Another thing to look at is the distance from a truck to the apartment or a house entrance. Usually, long distance moving projects are priced by weight and not the hourly rate, you may give the Long Walking Distance Surcharge, it’s usually a small fee which covers the additional time needed for unloading or loading
When the origin or destination is in a difficult to access area, long-distance movers may offer the shuttle service. Tractor trailer trucks can not easily move around some neighbourhoods; thus, movers would deliver items with the shuttle - a smaller truck that could go though. The shuttle allows the crew to safely load and unload possessions to any building.
