out of state movers

So you’re leaving the sunny shores of Jacksonville for pastures new? Congratulations on your exciting adventure! But before you trade your flip-flops for snow boots (or whatever your new destination demands), there’s the not-so-small matter of the move itself. Long-distance relocations can be daunting, but with careful planning and the right moving company by your side, you can navigate the process smoothly. Here at Royal Moving and Storage, with nearly 40 years of experience, we’ve seen it all – and we want to share some key things to watch out for when moving from Jacksonville to another state.

Transparency is Key: Beware of Hidden Costs

Federal law mandates that interstate movers perform a complete inventory of your belongings before providing a moving estimate. Unfortunately, some less reputable companies might skip this crucial step. Then, on moving day – a stressful and vulnerable time – they might spring a surprise price increase, claiming they weren’t aware of certain items. This can leave you feeling pressured and stuck with a much higher bill than anticipated.

At Royal Moving & Storage, we believe in transparency and upfront pricing.

Based on this inventory, we’ll provide you with a flat-rate quote that won’t change on moving day – no surprises, no hidden fees, just a clear and honest price.

Movers Insurance: Protecting Your Precious Possessions

Accidents can happen, even with the most careful movers. That’s why movers insurance is a crucial part of any interstate move. There are two main options to consider:

  • Released Value Protection: This basic form of coverage typically comes included in the base price of the move. However, it only offers limited protection – 60 cents per pound per item. So, if a valuable item gets damaged, the compensation you receive might not be enough to replace it.
  • Full Value Protection: This option provides much more comprehensive coverage. You’ll declare the value of each item, and in case of damage, you’ll be reimbursed for the full replacement cost. While full value protection typically comes at an additional cost, it offers valuable peace of mind, especially for irreplaceable items.
