While asking friends and family can work for a local move, it becomes more practical to hire professionals for the long-distance moves. Finding a reputable moving company is important for long-distance moves, since they will be in control of your belongings for awhile. If possible, ask friends, relatives and co-workers for any recommendations they may have regarding moving companies they have used. If you can’t get any references for providers, you can find many companies to compare by doing an Internet search. If you choose a company that is affiliated with a well-known van line, you may feel somewhat at ease about the safety of your belongings. Many people are not aware however that more than one moving company could handle your things when using a van line to move. Moving a household across the country can take some time, which can prevent a moving company’s truck and staff from other moves. Instead a van line agent may serve as the ‘origin agent’, which typically means that pack up your things and put them into a truck. Once the truck is loaded, the van line will have its own drivers that perform the task of driving the loaded truck to its new destination. When the truck arrives at your new home, the van line can have a ‘destination agent’ unload your things.
