It should be safe to say that long distance moving provides its fair share of challenges. With all the complexities of a local move, long distance moving also involves the delivery of your valuables across much wider distances. This means extra care must be paid to packing and securing your valuables, longer delivery times must be accounted for and extra tools and equipment may be necessary.

Our moving experts provide comprehensive services — such as helping you coordinate a customized plan and providing full-service packing, fragile-only packing and all supplies necessary to ensure your belongings are safe and secure for the big journey ahead.

Planning for youe Long Distance Moving

Planning a long distance move and have some questions regarding the process? Here are a few of our most frequently asked questions.

How far in advance should I plan my long distance move?

We believe that the sooner you can plan, the better! The sooner we know about your moving plans, the better we can accommodate your availability and desired moving date. 

We also advise that you take into account that availability will narrow during peak months (for example, June, July and August are the months where we are more likely to be booked to capacity).

What’s the best way to pack for a long distance move?

While our moving experts will usually decide which materials are best-suited for each of your belongings, we usually make use of the following supplies:

  • Sturdy moving boxes filled with packing paper, to keep items secure
  • Moving dollies for transporting heavy items
  • Packing tape to ensure all boxes are sealed shut
  • Labels to ensure all items are properly identifiable (and marked as fragile, if necessary)
  • Packing paper and bubble wrap to protect fragile items
Are there items you are unable to pack during a long distance move?

Yes — unfortunately, some items are not safe to transport across large distances and cannot be included in your move. Prohibited items include propane cylinders, aerosols, perishables and more. As safety is one of our key priorities in all of our provided services, we do not move any items that pose a risk to our staff or our customers.
