||Moving Tips & Guides|
Keep your movers happy |
There are some things you simply shouldn’t say to your movers on moving day. Your movers are sometimes hired laborers who have little to do with the moving company so complaining about other aspects of the move will not help you. Keep this in mind when dealing with them. Also, be sure to give them plenty of space, but still supervise and direct them as needed. Happy movers are more likely to do a better job.
What are Long Carries? |
A long carry is a charge that may appear on your bill if the movers have a long distance to carry things from your home to the truck, or vice versa. They can be anticipated, but not always avoided. The moving company will have a set distance that they will carry items with no additional charge. It is measured from the rear of the truck or van to the entrance of the residence. Let's say that a mover has a maximum carry distance of 100 feet as company policy. If they end up having to carry your th
Finding a Reliable Moving Company |
When you’re putting all of your worldly possessions and precious belongings into the hands of a moving company, you’re going to want to make sure that it’s a reliable and reputable company that can be trusted. Since finding a reliable mover is the most important part of your move, we’ll tell you what to look for and how to find the perfect moving company that will take care of your things.
Multiple Quotes are Better |
When looking for a moving company, one isn’t enough. Be sure to get multiple quotes from at least three different moving companies. Don’t just choose the company that offers the lowest rate for your move -- the quality may match the price. Instead, get a few to choose from and ask a lot of questions. Make your decision based on price and services.
Long Distance Moves |
A long distance move is defined by any move that is greater than 50 miles. Long distance moves require a lot of patience and even more careful planning than a local move. You can help yourself out by making sure you’re well prepared for the challenges that come along with a long distance move.

First Class Moving-TX
|I built a cherry desk from rough lumber for my son. It took me 2 years. Shipping it from Virginia to California had me worried. I gave the move of the desk, 2 antique sowing machines, and an old Victrola to Erik Fowler. I was tremendously reassured as he prepared the desk for transport. It was internally braced, padded, wrapped, and rewrapped, and shrink-wrapped. It could have survived a drop from low earth orbit. It arrived in California in perfect condition. I am very impressed and grateful.|

American Relocation LLC
|American Relocation are the worst movers I've ever had, and I've moved LOTS of time. They quoted me $1078 to pack and move my one bedroom house 14 miles away. They ended up charging me over $2400! I gave them a detailed inventory of my things, they quoted 6 hours and took 12. They quoted me one hour of drive time, but it was 3 hours, at $140/hour. They charged another $250 because my dining table was heavy...They didn't need any extra tools or people to transport it, I have no idea how they justified that. The movers were exceptionally slow and sloppy at packing my things. Some items were broken (haven't made it through the claims process yet), and I'm quite certain that my nicest earrings (diamond hoops) were stolen. When they finished packing, they tried to talk me into coming back the next day for delivery because they were tired and had families at home. I had nowhere to go that night with my dogs and couldn't pay for 3 more hours of drive time, so I asked that they finish the job that night. They then tried to drop everything in my living room in the interest of time, but I had to explain to them that I can't move the furniture up and down stairs by myself. They complained about it repeatedly and threatened that if bulky items were unable to fit around the stairs, they wouldn't be able to get them out again. I had to pay them before they would unload the truck, but I contacted them after the move to explain what had happened and that I would never have booked this company if I had known the true cost. They ultimately told me there was nothing they could do. I really could not afford the amount they charged me, there were cheaper estimates but I thought that I would get a good company based on the reviews on this site (now I see that there are bad reviews on other sites). I have never written a review before, but I wanted to make sure that everyone is warned before they have an awful experience like I did. Also be careful with Green Line Relocation, I got quotes from both and when I tried to confirm, I learned that they are the same company. It is deplorable to charge someone over twice the estimate when nothing has changed, I feel completely taken advantage of and am still trying to recover.|

|They were awful and made us lose ...|
Interstate Relocation Systems
|Well, they gave me a price, they quoted me a price and then they just kept adding money to it until, I think the original price to be paid was $1000 which I did and then $502 twice. On Pick up and delivery, then there was a question about the money at the pick up and they said they didn't need it, that they had a card on file. So they jacked the price up again to $600-something then they jacked it up again to $902 to be paid twice. And it was supposed to be delivered to Illinois. We went to Illinois and it never showed up, we found out they had it stored in a little storage place in Philadelphia which caused us to lose the apartment that we'd already paid for. So we left, came to Georgia, And I told them to send the stuff to Georgia, and they informed me that they were going to charge $450 more to reroute the truck and about 11 or 12 days later the driver called and said he had our stuff. And we met him at a storage unit that I had to rent and pay for and he said that I asked him where it came from, he said he was in Delaware, he left New Jersey with our furnishings, our stuff had never left the east coast, broke 3 legs off of a large TV stand and I ended up paying these people $3391.|

Moving to Virginia?
One of the original 13 American colonies and commonly referred to as the “Old Dominion,” Virginia is a state rich with diverse landscapes and a wealth of history and tradition. Located in the mid-to-southern Atlantic region bordering Delaware and West Virginia to the south and North Carolina to the north, the state’s official name is the Commonwealth of Virginia and is the birthplace of eight former U.S. presidents, which is the most of any state.
Sandwiched between the Blue Ridge Mountains in the western portion of the state and the Chesapeake Bay and Atlantic Ocean in the eastern portion of the state, Virginia has landscapes that range from beautiful mountain valleys to bustling coastal towns and major cities like Richmond and Alexandria.
If you’re moving to Illinois, there are a lot of things you’re going to need to know. Luckily, you’ve come to the right place.
Things to Know When Moving to Virginia
- Virginia’s vastly differentiating landscapes offer seasonal changes that vary from region to region in regards to average temperatures. In the northwestern portion of the state, the winters tend to be quite cold with average temperatures reaching as low as 26 degrees Fahrenheit and many snowstorms common to the region. In the summer, the southern and eastern portions of the state tend to be very hot and humid with average temperatures regularly reaching the high-80s to low-90s. The Beltway area around Baltimore and Washington D.C. near the northeastern part of the state gets especially humid during the summer months and can often be the site of many thunderstorms. (Helpful Link: Virginia Weather)
- Registering your Car: Upon your arrival in Virginia after moving to the state permanently, you have a total of 30 days to update your registration and have your vehicle registered in the state before you may be required to pay a penalty. The state law in Virginia also requires you to title the car in Virginia prior to having it registered. When this process is completed, you will receive new Virginia license plates for your car. (Helpful Link: Virginia DMV)
- Obtaining a Virginia Driver’s License: A Virginia Driver’s License can be obtained at any Virginia DMV location. The state requires new Virginia residents aged 19 or older (unless you are a member of the military or a student) to update their license from their previous state to a Virginia driver’s license within 60 days of moving. If you fail to update your driver’s license within this 60-day window, you may have to pay a fine.
- Real Estate: The average listing price for homes in Illinois is $352,845, while the median sales price is just over $329,900. The Virginia Association of Realtors is the official real estate resource for the state of Virginia.
- Moving and Storage: If you are looking for a moving company or storage facility to help you with anything, you should check to make sure the company is registered with the United States Department of Transportation or with the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration. Everything you need to know about moving to the Commonwealth of Virginia can be found at the following link. (Helpful Link: Virginia State Moving Resource Page)
- Virginia schools consistently rank very highly among the nation’s school systems. The United States Department of Education’s National Assessment of Educational Progress ranks the Virginia school system in the top 10 of all states. In the Commonwealth of Virginia schools are typically run by the individual towns and counties that they are a part of, and not by the state as a whole, which is different from how most states operate their school systems. Virginia high schools have a high graduation rate and many students stay in-state to attend one of the many great universities in Virginia such as the University of Virginia, The College of William & Mary, Virginia Commonwealth University, Richmond University, James Madison University and George Mason University, among many others. (Helpful Link: Virginia Schools)
As of 2011, Virginia was ranked 7th out of 50 states in violent crime, with a total of less than 10 violent crimes for every 100,000 people in the state.

In one area, there is employment to be found in various government and military sectors, being that both Army and Navy bases are located in Virginia, as well as the headquarters of the CIA and the FBI. Also, Virginia is a leader in technology, being one of the top exporters of computer chips in the nation.
As of early 2012, the state of Virginia had a relatively low unemployment rate of 5.7 percent, compared to other states with much higher unemployment rates.
