How to Find the Best Long-Distance Moving Company in Dallas
You’ll be trusting your chosen long-distance moving company to transport your household goods safely and on time, so it’s important that you make the right choice. Here are several things to consider to help you make the right decision:
Their Moving Experience
The length of time a moving company has been in business can be a good indicator of its stability and reliability. Long-distance moving comes with a particular set of challenges, so look for a company that has deep experience in moving households over great distances.
The Mover’s Reputation
The internet has made it easier than ever to find reviews of businesses. Browsing first-hand online reviews should give you some idea of the quality of service they provide and how much they care about their customers’ satisfaction. You should also ask people you know about any recent experience they may have had with a cross-country mover in Dallas.
The Moving Company’s Certifications and Awards
You will want to be sure that any interstate or long-distance moving company you’re considering working with has a required U.S. Department of Transportation (USDOT) number. You can look for the USDOT number on the department’s website. If you are making an intrastate long-distance move within Texas, the mover must have a Texas Department of Motor Vehicles number.
Also look for certification from moving industry trade associations, such as the American Moving & Storage Association (AMSA).
You may not think that whether a long-distance mover requires payments from its customers would be a factor in vetting the company, but it’s an important indicator of a moving company’s business practices.
Fly-by-night or disreputable moving companies are known to ask customers for large deposits before they will provide any services. This is not standard practice, so if a moving company asks you to make a deposit in order to get a place on its schedule, you probably shouldn’t work with it.
The level of trust involved with having moving crew members in your home and handling all of your belongings is significant.
It’s essential to get the details on how a long-distance or cross-country moving company vets and trains its employees. Ask each company you’re considering whether they screen for drug use, conduct thorough background checks, and provide training on how to pack and transport their customers’ goods.
Moving Estimate Accuracy
Ask prospective moving companies if their moving quotes include every cost so that you can be sure that you won’t be unpleasantly surprised by additional costs or hidden fees when your belongings are being delivered to their destination.
Also ask about the costs of any third-party services that may be used for services such as crating and uncrating or packing specialty or fragile items. Be aware that there is more than one type of estimate for a long-distance move, such as binding estimates, not-to-exceed estimates, and non-bound estimates.

Long-Distance Dallas Moving Company FAQ
Flexibility is key to a great long-distance move experience, so we give our customers the choice of a full or partial packing service. We recommend that you leave the packing of your most fragile items to our professional packing crew, as well as any disassembly or crating services you may need for large, heavy or fragile items such as chandeliers or grandfather clocks.
Partial packing may be best if budget is one of your top concerns, while full packing is recommended when you will have a large shipment. Even with the full packing service, you have the option to do the packing yourself and leave the rest to us.
Your final, accurate estimate will depend on several things, including:
- The distance that you are moving
- The weight of your household goods
- The extent of the services you would like us to provide; we offer both partial and full-service moving
- The types of specialty items you may need moved, such as antiques, art, and pianos
- Any special packing needs you may have, such as a need for custom-built crates
The estimating process at Daryl Flood includes a free, in-home quote that we guarantee will be accurate, plus there are never any additional, hidden fees. If the scope of your move doesn't change, neither will our original moving quote.
We recommend that you get at least three estimates from long-distance movers in Dallas. To help you make a side-by-side comparison of each company's services and fees, use our convenient mover comparison chart.
