Hello and thanks for visiting! We'd be glad to help you find a company that will perform an in-house estimate of your items in Chico, Ca.

Long-Distance Movers

Because you're moving across state lines, you'll need to find a long-distance moving company. A long-distance move is any move that is more than 2,000 miles or that crosses state lines. Many companies specialize in long-distance moves, making them better equipped to handle your move.

When choosing a long-distance moving company be sure to ask them about:

  • Pricing - Are there any extra fees you'll have to pay during your move? Extra fees might include charges for stair carries, long carries, packing services, packing materials, furniture assembly/disassembly, etc.
  • Licensing - One of the ways to tell if a company is reputable is to check that it is properly licensed and that all of their licenses are valid and current.
  • Experience - How long have they been operating? Are they accredited by the Better Business Bureau? Can they provide you with references from previous customers?
  • Insurance - What kind of insurance do they offer? How much is covered?

In-home Estimates

When collecting quotes for your move, an in-home estimate is important. The pricing of your long-distance move is generally based on the volume of your items and the only way to get a good estimate is if the company sees your items first-hand. You won't receive a final price until the day of your move.

Also it's important to be sure that you request quotes from at least three different moving companies before deciding on hiring one. Do not just choose the company that offers you the lowest quote as they might not provide the best service.
