Get the Best Moving Services with iMoving

 

Finding a reliable and affordable mover is a key part of the moving process. It has become so easy for movers to create a website, advertise moving services and legitimize their business. But many of these movers offer a sub-par, overpriced service riddled with issues. It is why iMoving offers individuals, couples and families a real alternative.

 

The iMoving referral service is the best way to connect with the most reputable local and long-distance movers in your area. We also help you receive other services related to relocation, such as storage, car transport and more.

 

Offering a quality moving service entails a lot more than buying a few trucks and hiring people who can lift heavy objects. Reputable movers are properly licensed and insured. Movers within the iMoving network have at least two years of experience and very positive feedback from previous customers.

The moving and storage industry in the United States is one of the oldest and most complex. There are so many different companies within the industry, ranging from multi-million dollar corporations to a few people operating a moving service out of their home.

 

Whether you are moving locally, a state away or across the country, it is crucial to find a reputable moving service provider that offers the services you need. But most people do not have extensive experience about how to identify the best movers, and you may not want to spend days researching different companies, their reputations and the services they offer.

 

iMoving makes everything a lot simpler. Our referral service takes care of the legwork. We vet the most reliable providers of moving, storage and auto transport services, allowing you to select the provider offering the best price on the services that you need.

 

Services

  • Local Moving Services

    The moving company you pick to handle your upcoming move will depend heavily on whether you are moving locally or long distance. While some movers are equipped to handle both types of moves, many companies only offer local moving services.

     

    They are unable to handle a move over a certain distance. Movers within the iMoving network will specify whether they offer local and/or long-distance moving services.

  • Long Distance Moving

    If you are moving across the United States, or simply from one state to another, you will need to hire a long-distance moving company to handle the move.

     

    By understanding the nature of the long-distance moving process, you can get a sense of the logistics and cost associated with such a move. The iMoving referral service can help you find a reputable long-distance mover in your area.

  • Truck Rental

    Planning for a move takes time and effort – and you want to be sure that you’re doing whatever is necessary in order to save time and money on it.

     

    A truck rental is just one of many things that you may be considering as a part of your move – but what does it entail and how much does it cost? Let’s take a look.

  • Packing and Unpacking

    Packing and unpacking are two of the biggest things that you need to work out as you’re looking at your move and what it is that you need to do during it.

     

    There’s a lot to be taken care of and, as you explore what it is that you need to work out, you may find it easier and more time-efficient to go ahead and hire movers that can take care of your packing and unpacking services easily.

  • Storage Services

    Renting a storage unit for the first time? Hoping to store your possessions temporarily until you finalize living arrangements in a new city? We can help you find the ideal solution for your needs.

     

    Storage units are so helpful when you are trying to downsize your living situation, reduce clutter, move to another city or store seasonal supplies. iMoving can connect you with companies that offer storage solutions.

  • special handling

    Special Handling

    Everyone who is preparing for a move has concerns about the large and fragile items that are going to be packed in the moving van or truck. How can you be sure that these items are going to arrive in the way that you want them to? Are there options that make it easier for you to have peace of mind?

     

    Many of the companies at iMoving offer what are known as special handling services. What are these, why do they matter, and how can you be sure that you’re doing what is necessary in order to get things done in a way that you’re happy with?

  • Commercial Moving

    It is not every day that you need to move your business. Whether you are moving into a bigger office, shifting to a nearby city or moving temporarily, there is a lot that must get done to ensure a smooth transition.


    Hiring a reliable commercial moving company can make all the difference. These companies have the experience, tools and skills necessary to ensure your office move is handled with precision and care. And iMoving can help put you in touch with them.

  • Moving Labor

    Not every type of residential move requires a full moving service. Some individuals, couples or families may not even want to pay professional moving companies for the use of their moving trucks. A small or local move may only require the assistance of moving labor. And iMoving can help you connect with the most reliable moving labor in your area.

  • Auto Transport

    Depending on the distance involved in your upcoming move, driving your car to your new home may not be the best idea. Long-distance or cross-country moves put a lot of wear and tear on a car, not to mention the time and effort of driving the distance yourself. And, the situation could be complicated by the need to move multiple vehicles. iMoving can help you connect with a reputable long-distance moving company that offers auto transport services.

  • Assembly and Disassembly

    One of the most difficult parts of your move is trying to sort out what it is that you need in order to get your large items where you need them to go. How can you be sure that you’re able to get them moved? Are you going to keep them together or are you going to take them apart before the move?

     

    There are many large items that you may want to disassemble as a part of your moving process. But, what needs to be taken apart? Should you do it yourself or is it better for you to get your movers to do it for you? Let’s take a look at some of the most common questions that get asked in regards to disassembly and assembly of your large items during the move.

  • Disposal Services

    During the move out process, you will find that you have a lot of stuff that you just don’t want to take with you. Whether it’s broken, unusable, torn, or just in your way, you will find that there are likely piles of junk that you won’t be sure how to deal with in a proper fashion. Will you need to take multiple trips to your local dump or recycling center to make it happen?

     

    If you’re looking at the options that you have available for dealing with your junk, you may be looking at your local waste removal service or trash pickup. But, many times they won’t take items in bulk at all. What are you supposed to do at that point? That’s where disposal services can give you a hand. Let’s take a look at disposal services and what they can do to help you with everything that you need to

  • Piano Services

    Piano Services

    Those of us who appreciate music may have been brought up to play an instrument from a young age. While instruments like trumpets and guitars are easy to take to a new home, you have a bit more planning involved when you’re trying to deal with a large instrument like a piano.

     

    Specialized piano moving services are an important thing that you’re going to want to consider when looking at getting prepared for your move, and there are a few details that you’ll definitely need to work out. Let’s take a look at a few of the details involved here.

  • Wood Crate – Art & Antique

    You are what we would call a collector. You own valuable, one-of-a-kind pieces of fine art or antique furniture that will add a truly unique look to your new home.  

     

    During a move, items like this can become very stressful for you. Their delicate nature and age make them more vulnerable to serious damage and the memories, feelings and sentiment attached simply make them irreplaceable. Their value typically is priceless, which is why iMoving only works with high-quality movers who care about your valuables as if they were their own.

     

    For delicate or high value items, wrapping them in bubble wrap, tissue paper or old clothes and fabric may not be enough. Antiques and artwork deserve special consideration when moving.

  • International Moving

    Extreme excitement and anxiety are probably your best friends right now. This is a big life change and starting off on the right foot with a decent moving experience would go a long way in making your move easier. Making sure it goes right feels like the set up for whether you will start your life in that new country off right.

     

    iMoving knows how difficult an international move can be and partners with some of the best movers in the US and abroad to help create seamless moving experiences for brave travelers like yourself.

     

    Whatever you choose to do, just know we miss you already and good luck with the move!

5 Things To Look For Before Hiring Local Movers In Your City

Moving day is on the way and you need to be sure that you have everything set up and ready to go. You need to explore everything and put all your ducks in a row so that you can get it all accomplished. What comes first?

 

Before you even start looking for local moving companies, you want to have a few things in order and sorted out. Here’s our look at the 5 most important things that you need to look for before you hire local movers.

 

Getting together moving supplies

 

Moving supplies are the first thing that you need to start thinking about. You can’t move effectively if you aren’t able to pack up everything in your home. So, you need to start exploring what it is that you’re going to need and start putting together that to-do list so that you can start gathering everything up.

 

Moving supplies can include boxes, tape, labels, writing utensils, and whatever else that you may need in order to ensure that you do everything correctly. While it’s not a simple process to figure out, you will notice that there are a lot of different ways to get everything.

 

Now, obviously, this isn’t going to matter if your moving company offers packing services and you’ve made the choice to go ahead and hire them to take care of such things for you. If that’s the case, then you can just forgo this and go on to one of the other things that we’ve suggested on this list.

 

How much is the budget you have for your move?

 

The budget you have for your move is a big part of what you need to know before you hire a moving company. Why? Because you need to be sure that you’ll actually be able to afford whatever quote it is that you get from the company itself.

 

There are a lot of unknowns that may come up when you’re looking to hire a company that can deal with your move. You will want to make sure that you can get the things that you need and that you’re happy with the services that you are going to get from them.

 

So, if you sit down ahead of time and look at how much you want to spend and how much you are going to be able to afford overall, you’ll have a much easier time actually determining whether or not you’re getting the best in terms of value.

 

Be reasonable about the budget that you’re putting together, however. You are going to have to spend at least $100 on local movers, but it’s likely that you’re spending closer to $500 or even $1000, depending on your home and stuff. The more flexibility you have, the easier it will be for you to take care of everything and afford what is best.

 

You also want to know what sorts of extra services that you want to get your hands on, as well. Extra services will cost extra money, but they could really help you to feel a lot less stressed out when it comes to moving day.

 

Sorting and packing – do you know what you’re getting rid of and what you’re taking with you?

 

One of the biggest processes that you need to consider here is packing. You need to start packing before you hire a moving company because you want to get an accurate estimate for your move in the first place. Why? There are a few reasons that this makes a lot of sense.

 

When you’re packing to move, you want to take a little bit of time to make sure that you’re sorting out what you’re taking with you and what it is that you don’t need to worry about. Many people take the time to purge things that they don’t need and to make sure that they don’t end up taking a bunch of stuff that will just sit in boxes.

 

If you sort things out while packing, you can also end up saving a little bit of money on the move itself. You’ll have fewer things to take with you, which will mean that it’ll take less time for your movers to sort out everything. It really is that simple!

 

On top of that, if you start packing before you make the decision to go ahead and hire a moving company, you’re a lot less likely to procrastinate. It’ll be easier for you to get things done and you won’t end up feeling like you don’t have a way forward with what you want to do.

 

How are you going to deal with kids and pets?

 

Kids and pets can cause some unique issues when it comes to getting everything accomplished on moving day. Younger children can make it hard for you to figure out what is best in your situation because they could get underfoot or make it hard to stay ahead of everything. Pets can do the same thing.

 

So, because of that, you need to figure out what is going to make the most sense for caring for your kids and pets in these situations. If you have a friend or family member that can help you to watch your kids or pets, that’s probably the best way to keep everyone as safe as they possibly can be.

 

Another consideration is sending the kids ahead with a friend or family member so that they can be ready for the movers to arrive there. They can check out the new place and have fun with their loved ones, and then stay out of the way when they get there. Maybe they can play in the yard or enjoy some other activity while the movers are getting items inside.

 

Pets are a little more complex. Large pets like dogs and cats may be better off getting sent ahead and placed in a room, sent to the home of someone they know and trust, or taken to a pet daycare for the day. That way, you don’t need to worry about them getting out when they shouldn’t, and they stay safe and away from everyone as they’re moving things.

 

Looking for the best moving company in your area

 

Now it’s time to start searching for the best movers in your area. More often than not, you are going to want to go ahead and do some research while you’re taking care of everything else that we’ve listed here. That way, when it’s time for you to actually hire them, you already have a list of who you want to contact.

 

You want to find a company that has a good reputation and that is going to be able to help you with everything that you need for your move. What services do they offer? Are they known for being friendly and professional? And how do you make sure that they are going to be affordable? These are big questions that you’ll need to answer in order to ensure that you get the best movers.

 

Find a few that you want to choose from and be sure to compare as much as you can about them and how they do things. More often than not, you’ll have several good choices and you just need to work out which one is going to be the best for you and what you need to do.

 

Frequently Asked Questions

Should I ever just take care of the move myself?

 

Sometimes, you’ll find that you’re in a better position if you go ahead and do it on your own. Maybe you don’t have a lot of items, or you have several days in which you can work things out. In those cases, you may find yourself much better off financially and time-wise if you do it yourself.

 

How much time should I put aside for a local move?

 

Local moves typically take less than a day to take care of. But, you’ll want to give yourself wiggle room after you move in so that you’re better able to organize your home and take care of everything in the best way possible.

 

Why do you need to differentiate between local moves and long-distance ones?

 

Long distance moves and local moves are actually calculated differently. Typically, local moves are going to be calculated by how many people you need and how many hours it takes to complete everything. But, long distance moves are going to be calculated by weight and distance. Typically, the “break point” is 100 miles – if it’s 100 miles or less, it’s “local;” if it’s more than 100 miles, it’s “long distance.”
