Get the Best Moving Services with iMoving

 

Finding a reliable and affordable mover is a key part of the moving process. It has become so easy for movers to create a website, advertise moving services and legitimize their business. But many of these movers offer a sub-par, overpriced service riddled with issues. It is why iMoving offers individuals, couples and families a real alternative.

 

The iMoving referral service is the best way to connect with the most reputable local and long-distance movers in your area. We also help you receive other services related to relocation, such as storage, car transport and more.

 

Offering a quality moving service entails a lot more than buying a few trucks and hiring people who can lift heavy objects. Reputable movers are properly licensed and insured. Movers within the iMoving network have at least two years of experience and very positive feedback from previous customers.

The moving and storage industry in the United States is one of the oldest and most complex. There are so many different companies within the industry, ranging from multi-million dollar corporations to a few people operating a moving service out of their home.

 

Whether you are moving locally, a state away or across the country, it is crucial to find a reputable moving service provider that offers the services you need. But most people do not have extensive experience about how to identify the best movers, and you may not want to spend days researching different companies, their reputations and the services they offer.

 

iMoving makes everything a lot simpler. Our referral service takes care of the legwork. We vet the most reliable providers of moving, storage and auto transport services, allowing you to select the provider offering the best price on the services that you need.

 

Services

  • Local Moving Services

    The moving company you pick to handle your upcoming move will depend heavily on whether you are moving locally or long distance. While some movers are equipped to handle both types of moves, many companies only offer local moving services.

     

    They are unable to handle a move over a certain distance. Movers within the iMoving network will specify whether they offer local and/or long-distance moving services.

  • Long Distance Moving

    If you are moving across the United States, or simply from one state to another, you will need to hire a long-distance moving company to handle the move.

     

    By understanding the nature of the long-distance moving process, you can get a sense of the logistics and cost associated with such a move. The iMoving referral service can help you find a reputable long-distance mover in your area.

  • Truck Rental

    Planning for a move takes time and effort – and you want to be sure that you’re doing whatever is necessary in order to save time and money on it.

     

    A truck rental is just one of many things that you may be considering as a part of your move – but what does it entail and how much does it cost? Let’s take a look.

  • Packing and Unpacking

    Packing and unpacking are two of the biggest things that you need to work out as you’re looking at your move and what it is that you need to do during it.

     

    There’s a lot to be taken care of and, as you explore what it is that you need to work out, you may find it easier and more time-efficient to go ahead and hire movers that can take care of your packing and unpacking services easily.

  • Storage Services

    Renting a storage unit for the first time? Hoping to store your possessions temporarily until you finalize living arrangements in a new city? We can help you find the ideal solution for your needs.

     

    Storage units are so helpful when you are trying to downsize your living situation, reduce clutter, move to another city or store seasonal supplies. iMoving can connect you with companies that offer storage solutions.

  • Special Handling

    Everyone who is preparing for a move has concerns about the large and fragile items that are going to be packed in the moving van or truck. How can you be sure that these items are going to arrive in the way that you want them to? Are there options that make it easier for you to have peace of mind?

     

    Many of the companies at iMoving offer what are known as special handling services. What are these, why do they matter, and how can you be sure that you’re doing what is necessary in order to get things done in a way that you’re happy with?

  • Commercial Moving

    It is not every day that you need to move your business. Whether you are moving into a bigger office, shifting to a nearby city or moving temporarily, there is a lot that must get done to ensure a smooth transition.


    Hiring a reliable commercial moving company can make all the difference. These companies have the experience, tools and skills necessary to ensure your office move is handled with precision and care. And iMoving can help put you in touch with them.

  • Moving Labor

    Not every type of residential move requires a full moving service. Some individuals, couples or families may not even want to pay professional moving companies for the use of their moving trucks. A small or local move may only require the assistance of moving labor. And iMoving can help you connect with the most reliable moving labor in your area.

  • Auto Transport

    Depending on the distance involved in your upcoming move, driving your car to your new home may not be the best idea. Long-distance or cross-country moves put a lot of wear and tear on a car, not to mention the time and effort of driving the distance yourself. And, the situation could be complicated by the need to move multiple vehicles. iMoving can help you connect with a reputable long-distance moving company that offers auto transport services.

  • Assembly and Disassembly

    One of the most difficult parts of your move is trying to sort out what it is that you need in order to get your large items where you need them to go. How can you be sure that you’re able to get them moved? Are you going to keep them together or are you going to take them apart before the move?

     

    There are many large items that you may want to disassemble as a part of your moving process. But, what needs to be taken apart? Should you do it yourself or is it better for you to get your movers to do it for you? Let’s take a look at some of the most common questions that get asked in regards to disassembly and assembly of your large items during the move.

  • Disposal Services

    During the move out process, you will find that you have a lot of stuff that you just don’t want to take with you. Whether it’s broken, unusable, torn, or just in your way, you will find that there are likely piles of junk that you won’t be sure how to deal with in a proper fashion. Will you need to take multiple trips to your local dump or recycling center to make it happen?

     

    If you’re looking at the options that you have available for dealing with your junk, you may be looking at your local waste removal service or trash pickup. But, many times they won’t take items in bulk at all. What are you supposed to do at that point? That’s where disposal services can give you a hand. Let’s take a look at disposal services and what they can do to help you with everything that you need to

  • Piano Services

    Those of us who appreciate music may have been brought up to play an instrument from a young age. While instruments like trumpets and guitars are easy to take to a new home, you have a bit more planning involved when you’re trying to deal with a large instrument like a piano.

     

    Specialized piano moving services are an important thing that you’re going to want to consider when looking at getting prepared for your move, and there are a few details that you’ll definitely need to work out. Let’s take a look at a few of the details involved here.

  • Wood Crate – Art & Antique

    You are what we would call a collector. You own valuable, one-of-a-kind pieces of fine art or antique furniture that will add a truly unique look to your new home.  

     

    During a move, items like this can become very stressful for you. Their delicate nature and age make them more vulnerable to serious damage and the memories, feelings and sentiment attached simply make them irreplaceable. Their value typically is priceless, which is why iMoving only works with high-quality movers who care about your valuables as if they were their own.

     

    For delicate or high value items, wrapping them in bubble wrap, tissue paper or old clothes and fabric may not be enough. Antiques and artwork deserve special consideration when moving.

  • International Moving

    Extreme excitement and anxiety are probably your best friends right now. This is a big life change and starting off on the right foot with a decent moving experience would go a long way in making your move easier. Making sure it goes right feels like the set up for whether you will start your life in that new country off right.

     

    iMoving knows how difficult an international move can be and partners with some of the best movers in the US and abroad to help create seamless moving experiences for brave travelers like yourself.

What to Do When Moving Out of State? | iMoving

What to Do When Moving Out of State?

Living in a place where everything is unfamiliar and strange may not be appealing to some, but this change can be exciting and memorable. Whether you’re moving for a new job opportunity, to go to your dream college, or simply for a change of scenery, a long-distance move should be considered carefully before committing.

 

If you’ve set your mind on moving, get ready for the experience of a lifetime. It can seem daunting to move to an entirely new state, but using these tips for long-distance moving, you can ensure that you’re prepared and ready to go on your big day. Let’s explore some of the things you can do to get ready for your moving day and have an excellent moving experience.

 

The moving out of state checklist:

 

  • Research the state
  • Look for homes
  • Clear out items
  • Start packing
  • Hire movers

 

Research Your New State

 

Sometimes, it’s possible to choose your new state of residence. However, there are times when you don’t have a say in where you move, such as when moving for a job, so doing an ample amount of research is necessary to get prepared for your new home. Find out about state taxes, seasonal temperature changes, school districts, and more. You’re going to be packing up your entire household, so it’s a good idea to know exactly what you can expect moving into a new state.

 

Look for Homes

 

You can look for a home without knowing anything about the state you’re going to be living in, but this keeps you from having all of the information necessary to make the best decision for your household. Use your research to find a home that fits your needs – you may even find an affordable home that you like more than your current home. You shouldn’t start actually planning your move until you know where you’re going to be living, though you may contact movers ahead of time to secure your booking.

 

Purge Your Belongings

 

As homeowners, it’s easy to hold onto items that you no longer need, want, or use simply because they may come in handy down the line. However, a new home is not the place for old or outdated items, so consider purging the home before you begin packing up things that will just take up space. Clear out old electronics, outdated equipment, and junk that you no longer use.

 

If you don’t want to throw anything out, donate items that are in good condition or have a yard sale and get rid of them, putting a little cash in your pocket. Items can also be given to family members and friends, though you should make sure they can or will actually enjoy or use them – otherwise, you’re just gifting them with junk. Anything that is left behind can be tossed or recycled, so your new home is free of aimless clutter.

 

Begin Packing

 

It’s likely that not everything is going to go onto the moving truck, so the first thing you should do when you begin packing – aside from purging – is to pack items that you plan to keep close to you during the move. If you’ll be driving to your new home or renting a vehicle, make sure that you have enough space for everything that will need to be transported.

 

If you will be flying or getting to your new home through another mode of transportation, you may not be able to take as much with you. Try to keep essentials on hand – toiletries, extra clothing, credit cards, money, important documents, sentimental or valuable items, etc. You may also consider shipping items, though you should arrange delivery times so that you can pick up items or they arrive on the same day you and the movers do.

 

Hire a Moving Company

 

While many people choose to tackle local moves with a few friends and moving truck rental, long-distance moves require a bit more organization and professional assistance. If you’re going to be moving to an entirely different state, you may consider working with a reputable moving company that can make sure items get to their new home in one piece.

 

Moving companies provide you with a team of professionals that can pack items properly, wrap them, and load them onto the truck in the most efficient and least risky manner possible. They are also covered by insurance, so if anything goes wrong all you have to do is file a claim with the moving company and it will be taken care of.

 

Frequently Asked Questions

 

  1. When should I contact a long-distance moving company?

 

As a rule of thumb, you should start searching for a good moving company as soon as you know you’ll be moving to a new home, even if you’re not sure where exactly you’ll be living.

 

In spring and summer, generally, you should give 2 months of notice before the day of your move can ensure that a team is reserved, and you are scheduled on the day you most prefer. During the winter, you may be able to push off calling movers for another month, as companies aren’t as busy.

 

  1. How much does it really cost to hire movers?

 

The total costs that you will pay to work with moving professionals will vary significantly depending on several factors, such as how much movers will be transporting, the distance movers will be traveling, the level of protection you choose for your items, and additional services such as packing and storage.

 

Equipment and supplies may also be added to your costs, like boxes, packing tape, and other materials that come with a price as well.

 

Final Thoughts

 

Though it can seem like a forbidding and stressful process, a long-distance move can be completed smoothly with as little stress as possible by going over a few items and getting organized before your movers arrive.

 

You can go through the above checklist or make your own to ensure that all bases are covered and you’re ready for your long-distance journey.
