Jordan River Moving & Storage knows that a long distance move can be an exciting, yet sometimes overwhelming experience. Jordan River would like to help you understand how cross country move charges are determined. For your convenience, we have put together this explanation of our long distance charging policy to prevent any confusion about our pricing method. This will ensure that you will not be surprised during selection of a moving company or during the day of the actual move itself. We want to help you get an accurate estimate so there are no surprises on your move day. If you have any questions before, during, or after the estimate, don’t hesitate to give us a call.
There are many more considerations involved in pricing a long distance move. Long distance charges are based on weight and distance. To determine the net weight of your shipment, the mover weighs the empty vehicle prior to loading and then reweighs it after loading your belongings into the truck. With a free visual estimate you will receive either a binding, non-binding, or not-to-exceed estimate. Your initial estimate will remain the same if the original itemized list of goods does not change on the day of the move. It is the customer’s responsibility to check that all items to be moved are included on this estimate of cost. Please make sure you carefully look over the itemized list of all estimates. If there is a change in the number of boxes or items prior to your move or on the move day itself, make sure to bring this to the attention of your relocation coordinator, so they can adjust your estimate appropriately and make proper arrangements for your move. For a long distance move, packing services are charged per box, depending on the type of box. Various companies charge differently for packing. At Jordan River, we include the furniture wrapping, using moving blankets and tape as a part of our services, at no additional cost. Make sure to ask your moving company how they charge. For any questions you may have regarding the preparation of your long distance move, please call us at any time.
Our goal is to always provide you with personalized service on your moving day. Jordan River can be trusted to handle your move quickly, efficiently, safely and economically! Whether we are moving a few items, an apartment, or a mansion-full of furniture, we are anxious to show you the pride that goes into every long distance move!
