How do I choose the right movers for my family?

Getting referrals from friends, family members, and coworkers you trust is a time-tested way to create a short list of residential movers to consider. In other words, you can collect word-of-mouth recommendations. Find out what they like about their moving company and ask about their reliability.

After collecting personal recommendations and doing a Google search to create a list of movers, check the online presence of each one of interest. Ask yourself:

→ Do they have an established website?
→ Are there online reviews you can review?
→ Is the moving company active and engaged with positive reviews?

Make sure that the company can show you the following documents:

→ Department of Transportation (DOT) license (this verifies that the moving company is insured, among other things)
→ Licensing by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Association (FMCSA)
→ Pro-Mover Certification from the American Moving and Storage Association (AMSA)

Ideally, the movers will proactively show you their licensing and certifications without having to be asked. In addition, you can check the relocation company’s ratings at the Better Business Bureau and the AMSA.

When you reach out for a quote, see how efficiently and professionally the company handles the request. If they don’t want to put the quote in writing, are vague about costs or processes, or seem uncomfortable with answering questions, these are all red flags.

What’s considered a local move in Texas? What does intrastate move mean?

A local move is typically defined as one where the distance between the two locations is fifty miles or less. Our local movers are available in (but are not limited to) these service areas:

Fort Worth
San Antonio

An intrastate move, meanwhile, takes place within the same state—for example, Texas—but is more than 50 miles. An interstate move, meanwhile, means that someone is moving to a different state and likely requires long distance movers. Daryl Flood handles local moves as well as intrastate ones and interstate ones in the 48 states in the U.S. mainland. Besides being local movers and long-distance movers, we are also international movers.

How much should I plan for moving costs?

No two moves are ever exactly the same, but here are issues to consider:

→ How far you’re moving: With our local moving service, the pricing depends upon the weight of goods being moved. Our in-home estimator will carefully take this into account when giving you a quote for our local movers. Decluttering before a move, then, can lower the moving costs. With long distance moving, how far you’re moving is a factor.
→ Amount of moving services desired: You may, for example, want a convenient, time-saving full-service move or you may want to move, DIY. When you’re using a moving company, you can get an estimate. With a DIY move, you can gather costs for truck rentals, fuel, and any help you’ll need with the physical labor.
→ Specialty items: If you have extra large items, like a grand piano, or especially delicate ones (such as antique glassware), this can affect the cost of your move.
→ If you’ll do your own packing, price the boxes, packing material, scissors, tape, and labeling supplies.

Besides costs associated with the actual move, also factor in:

→ Real estate or rental expenses: When buying and selling a home, this can include a real estate commission, down payment, closing costs, and so forth. When renting, this can include a security deposit.
→ Utility deposits at your new place; it’s also possible that you’ll face early cancellation fees for services you’ll stop at your former address
→ Cleaning products or professional cleaning services at the place you’re moving from; if selling a home, you may pay someone to stage the home for an optimal sale
Storage costs if you’ll need short- or long-term storage of your belongings
→ Driver’s license fees and vehicle registration costs if moving to a different state
→ Additional furniture, especially if you’re moving to a larger dwelling

Add up these costs and consider any factors that are unique to your move. To get an estimate for our residential moving services, just fill out the form at the top of this page.

How does company relocation work?

When an employee is relocating and will work for their company at another location, many times, the employer offers a relocation package. As part of this package, they will allocate funds to pay for long distance movers or international movers.

Companies often reach out to professionals for relocation management services. Daryl Flood’s sister company, Sterling Lexicon, offers personalized packages for companies, nationally and internationally. We also offer commercial moving services when you need to relocate your business.

How far in advance should you plan to move? When should you schedule moving services?

If you know that you’ll move but aren’t 100% sure of the date, it makes sense to investigate and choose a moving company. Then, when you get a better sense of your timeline, this is one less item on your to-do list. Then, as soon as you know when you’ll move, you should book your moving company. Note that May through September is typically the prime moving season. So, if you expect to move during that time, schedule your moving company at least four to six weeks in advance.

There are plenty of things you can do ahead of time to reduce stress and streamline the process. For example, as soon as you know you’ll move, declutter. Throw out items that you clearly don’t need and won’t benefit anyone else.

Go room by room, deciding what you don’t need that someone else might. Then you can hold a rummage sale to put extra cash in your pocket or give away items to friends and family or donate to charities.

You can use professional moving services to pack your belongings or DIY. At Daryl Flood, we offer both full service and partial moving services, ones that will fit your budget. If you’ll do your own packing, get enough boxes, bubble wrap, packing tape, labeling supplies, and more. Create a labeling strategy. You could, for example, assign each room a color and label each box accordingly. Or you can write the room’s name on each box. No matter what you decide, label each side of the box. If items in a particular box are especially important, mark those appropriately.

Consider what to take with you during your move. This can include important personal documents, medications, purses and wallets, laptops, and so forth.
