Long-Distance Moving Estimate
After you agree to the terms of your estimate and get connected with your moving specialist, you will be provided with an Order for Service document detailing the specifics of your move. On the day of your move, the movers will carefully load your belongings into the moving truck and provide you with a Bill of Lading. A Bill of Lading is a legal document serving as an agreement and contract for the transported items. As your belongings are being unloaded from the truck, the movers will individually check off the Bill of Lading. Once everything is unloaded and in place, the movers will conduct a final walkthrough where you can address any remaining questions or concerns about the move.

In the moving industry, the most reliable way to obtain an accurate estimate from your mover is by scheduling an in-home or virtual estimate. In-home and virtual estimates allow the moving company to accurately assess your belongings and understand the specific requirements of your move. According to our research, the average cost of a long-distance move from Tacoma, Washington, can range from $3,000 to $10,000. However, it’s important to note that your specific move might fall outside this range, depending on the distance, amount of items, and the total weight of the items.
Choosing a moving company that provides honest and precise estimates without hidden fees can save customers from unexpected costs. Before finalizing on a moving company, it’s recommended to get at least three different estimates from three different companies, so that you can choose the best moving company for you.

Long-distance moving services include loading, furniture disassembly and reassembly, transportation, and unloading. Additional services like packing and unpacking and estate cleanouts generally cost extra.
Not all moving companies provide packing services, so it’s a good idea to confirm with the company beforehand. Additionally, the cost of packing services can fluctuate based on the value, quantity, and size of your belongings. To prevent any unexpected expenses, we suggest obtaining a packing services estimate in advance. This way, you can be well-informed and prepared for the costs associated with your move.

On average, a long-distance move typically takes anywhere from 10 to 14 days. However, the delivery date can vary depending on several factors, including distance, size of the move, and the moving company’s schedule. It’s a good idea to discuss the estimated timeline with your moving specialist to get a better understanding of the expected duration of your move.

Proper experience and training is crucial in the moving industry. It’s common for moving companies to hire seasonal movers during peak seasons. Seasonal movers are essentially temporary workers who are hired to support the moving team during periods of increased relocation demands. It’s highly recommended to avoid companies that have a history of relying on temporary movers, as they may lack experience and expertise in handling your belongings with care.
Our team here at Mountain Moving & Storage consists of experienced permanent employees who are professionally trained and background-checked. Our commitment to safety and quality service is reflected in our rigorous training programs for our moving team, which include proper handling techniques, secure packing methods, and efficient loading and unloading procedures.
In the unfortunate event that your items are damaged or lost during your move, you should file a claim immediately. The Bill of Lading usually specifies the time a customer has to file a claim after the move date. After you have filled out a valuation claim form, the next step is to contact the main office of the company to inform them of the damage and to get information on how to proceed from there.
At Mountain Moving & Storage, we make the valuation process easy with clear guidelines and responsive support. In the unlikely event of damaged or lost items, we highly encourage our customers to call us at (253) 581-2414. Your dedicated moving specialist will guide you through the valuation process.

You can confirm their USDOT license using the Federal Mover’s Database Lookup.
