Do you know how often the average American moves throughout their lifetime? Recent statistics point to 12 moves. But with recent changes in the job landscape this number is about to go above 20. So that means that on average you should be moving every few years. And in fact, even though that is quite a common life event, most people fail to prepare for it.
You too know all about it. It comes with stress, frustration, overthinking, headaches and a plethora of other issues. You want to avoid them, but you just don’t know how. And that was just a local move. Now that you have to consider moving long distance, what should you do? The stress piles up and if this is your first major move, you may feel extremely nervous about it. Don’t worry, we are here to help you with it. As a Chicago moving company, we from A1 Movers have tons of experience in the field, so you don’t need to worry at all.
What Is Long Distance Moving?
This is an umbrella term that covers a lot of different moving situations, although not everyone agrees on what it means exactly. While some want to differentiate it from cross-country moves, we believe these fall under long distance as well. So here is what our idea of long distance moving is – if you are moving outside the state to a place that is beyond the suburbs, that falls within the long distance scope.
Of course, this is pretty vague, as you may be moving 200 miles from your current location, but that may be 2000 miles just as well. That is why it is absolutely necessary to contact the movers of your choice and request a free quote, in order to be able to calculate how much this move is going to cost you, as prices can vary from mover to mover and from place to place.
Do You Need A Chicago Moving Company For That Job?
While you can probably pull off a local move by yourself with the help of a couple of friends, this is nearly impossible for a long distance one. Sure, you may handle the packing, but driving a truck for that long a trip is probably not feasible to you. Also, you may not even be allowed to drive a big truck, so there is that.
Plus with professional A1 Movers everything is much easier, quick and without any trouble. You won’t have to worry about the safety of your items and about doing everything on time. Leave that to us – you can just sit back and relax. Or you can go to your new place and wait us there!
