Jacksonville long distance moving FAQs
When it comes to moving long distance or cross country, starting as early as possible is the best way to set yourself up for success, even if it’s months in advance.
The best first step is to get rid of anything you don’t want or need to taking the long journey with you. Go through each room in your home and having a plan for every item you'll be bringing to your new location, and remember that moves are priced by weight – so know ahead of time if your dining room table or armoire will fit in your new space. If an item is especially heavy, it may cost less to replace than to move it.
Once you have a good idea of the items that are coming with you, assess what packing supplies you’ll need. Aside from boxes, it may be helpful also to have bubble wrap, moving blankets, and other packing supplies to protect your belongings. Your move coordinator can assist you with understanding the supplies you’ll need, and can even give you options for packing assistance.
Preparing your new home for your arrival by making sure the utilities are connected, internet services are set up, and submitting your change of address to the post office in order will all help contribute to a painless moving experience.
Our Moving Checklist is an especially helpful document when it comes to making sure you’re ready for moving day!
Typically yes. Because we work with leading partners in long distance moving, we can typically accommodate any request for a specific day. However, during peak season it can be more competitive, and we advise reaching out six weeks or more ahead of your desired moving date.
“Peak” moving season is between March and September, which coincides with school breaks. If it’s possible for you to schedule your move outside of this time, you may have a better chance of landing movers on your preferred day.
A long-distance moving company should not be chosen on a whim – you should absolutely spend time vetting companies, and chose carefully. If you are entrusting a company with all of your belongings, you want to be sure that your items and your home will be handled with care and respect.
Begin by asking neighbors, friends, family, or colleagues for their experienced recommendations, or you can check long distance or cross-country moving company reviews online.
MoveDay movers are professional, licensed and experienced long distance moving companies with expert teams who can handle the most challenging move. Every single company we work with is licensed and insured, registered with the DOT and take excellent care of your home and property. Be sure to ask any long distance mover you reach out to for proof of the same qualifications.
Absolutely. We provide expert, secure storage services in our Jacksonville warehouse, and can store items for you until you return to the city, or you’d like them delivered to your new home at a later date. Your move coordinator can discuss local Jacksonville storage options and prices with you.
