Moving to North Dakota?

North Dakota is a state along the Canadian border that is considered as the geographic center of North America. It is officially nicknamed the Peace Garden State because of the presence of the International Peace Garden that lies on the frontier of North Dakota and the Canadian Province of Manitoba. The state is known by other nicknames such as the Flickertail State, due to the abundance of flickertail squirrels. Etymologically, the name Dakota originated from a Siouan language which means “a friend or an ally.”

North Dakota was inhabited by Native American tribes such as the Sioux, Mandan, Arikara, and Chippewa. The Spanish and the French were among the earliest European settlers. State officials, in their earnestness to attract immigrants, promoted the “Myth of North Dakota.”

Moving Tips & Guides
Look into Company Policies
Familiarize yourself with company policies. Not all companies have the same rules and policies – one company may be equipped to move antiques, while another may not. Also make sure that you are familiar with each individual aspect of your move ahead of time. It will save you headaches later on down the road.
The Meaning of US DOT Numbers
US DOT numbers are an important piece of information that will let you in on a moving company’s prior history and let you know where the company is legally allowed to operate, as well as if they company is legitimate and reputable. These numbers are important and can help you in your decision of whether or not to hire a moving company.
Phone Estimate vs. In-House ...
When you set out into the wide world of moving companies competing for your business, you’re most likely going to come across more than one who stands out among all the rest. Making tough decisions is an integral part of the moving process, and one of those decisions that you’ll have to make along the way is choosing a moving company. In the process of choosing a moving company you will be comparing estimates from several movers and you may receive those estimates one of two ways: over the phone
What to Ask Your Moving Company
Don’t forget to ask your moving company some of these questions: How long have they been operating? Ask for references. Ask for their license and insurance information. Ask them about any other charges that your move might incur. What’s important is that you choose a company that you feel comfortable with.
Moving During the School Year

Excellent relocation crew
Long Distance Vanlines
Excellent relocation crew. Perfect services. Diligent and timely in service delivery. The list is endless. I seem to love everything about Long Distance Van Lines. They are just incredible. When their crew came over to help me relocate, there were so many lovely things I learnt about them. Everything I saw was perfect. They possessed nearly all the traits I wanted for a perfect service provider. I will always live to appreciate their efforts in ensuring that I relocated safely and peacefully.

King Of The Road Transport, Inc
It was done on time and he did a really good job. Yea he did [give me a price quote and] yes [that's what I paid]. He was a good guy to work with. He called when he was an hour away from me. At one point when he got there he called me to let me know he's almost there. He called my brother=in-law to let him know so he did a good job.

They did what they promised.
It was like - they provided the boxes. The service was very good. They delivered within five working days which they promised. Everything was fine. The night the movers at Gilbert unpacked and put it back into my house. Yes pricing was what they did they have done it. They didn't charge anything extra. It was fast and the time they promised me to do it. Everything was fine. The pricing was fine. Yes I did received all the services that I requested. What they promised me they provided. The crew was okay. What they provided me for two two boxes. When I requested them to do the third one. They did it without any extra charge. So it was fine. The experience was fine. It was a very good experience. They can improve it if they provide some packing material like they can provide me with - I did bought my own blankets. If it is very helpful if they provide me with the blankets also and take that blanket with them once the job is done. They don't provide any packing materials like blankets or any such thing. U-Haul guys do provide all these blankets with the boxes. They take it away after unloading again. If we lose the blanket they charge it. If we don't lose anything then they don't charge anything. I think they can provide me the blankets and stuff - at least 12 to 15 blankets in a box. That would be very very helpful. Much more better than that. Yes definitely I would suggest this company to future customers. Everything was perfectly okay. Most of the company which I talked to them. They were telling me that it would take around seven working days. Some said that 12 working days but they promised me it would reach me within five working days. Definitely on the fifth working day the luggage was there. Those companies were charging much much more as compared to this company. Even U-haul was little bit cheaper but they were taking more time - like they were taking around 12 to 15 days altogether. But these people took only five six days as a whole. Everything was fine.
