Long Distance Movers From Northern Virginia
Able Moving & Storage routinely carries out both long distance moving and short distance moving depending on our customer’s needs. Not all moving companies will travel long distances due to certain business regulations, a limited license, a low number of available vehicles, or because of the higher expenses that would incur on the company. It is always important to verify that a moving company will travel out of state before selecting one to assist you with your move.
Another reason why only some moving companies offer long distance moves is that it requires an extensive knowledge of state and city laws and regulations. Each state requires different licensure for a moving company and may have additional restrictions on driving laws that the company’s employees must be familiar with. Able Moving & Storage is experienced with long distance moves, and we train all of our staff on the different regulations and requirements which occur from state to state.
When our customers are driving a long distance, their safety and well-being is our top priority. Though you may be anxious to reach your destination quickly, keeping the below tips in mind will allow you to stay refreshed and safe during your drive.
Stay fed and hydrated: Bring some snacks and drinks for the road to keep your energy up. Long drives can be very physically and mentally demanding.
Take Breaks: Be sure you stop and stretch your legs every two hours or so. This helps your circulation and prevents you from getting sore the next day.
Music: Listening to your favorite tracks can be very uplifting during a long drive. Try something upbeat that will keep you alert.
Don’t Speed: You may be tempted to go over the speed limit when traveling far, but this can put you and the other drivers on the road at risk.
Rest: If the distance you are covering will be long, plan to rest or stop and a hotel along the way and recharge your batteries. The last thing you should be doing is driving while you are exhausted.
Keep these ideas in mind when planning to move out of state or over a long distance. You’ll be safe and sound at your new destination in no time!
