Long distance movers in Bridgeport, Connecticut
If you are planning a long distance move to or from Bridgeport, Connecticut, you may be concerned by the reports of increased fraud in the moving industry. How can you be sure that the mover you choose isn’t going to hijack your shipment for an exorbitant payment or simply disappear? There are some signs to watch out for to help identify unscrupulous operators:
- If the mover doesn’t want to conduct an onsite, visual evaluation of your household goods before submitting an estimate—that’s a red flag. Federal regulations require this visual inspection, and it’s the best way for the moving company to craft an accurate assessment of the shipment’s weight, which forms the basis of the estimate.
- Offering only a verbal estimate instead of putting the price in writing is also a bad sign—the mover might be planning to raise the price when they load your goods or deliver them.
- If the mover demands a large deposit before the move, particularly if they want cash, you should be suspicious. Sometimes a moving company will take a deposit and not show up to do the work. If you pay cash, you can’t dispute the charge like you can with a credit card transaction.
Local Bridgeport, Connecticut moving companies
When you are hiring a mover in Bridgeport to assist with your local relocation, you may have referrals from friends or family who have moved. That’s a great place to start. Most movers agree that personal recommendations are their best advertising.
But make sure you do some checking to verify that the company is legitimate. Ask for a copy of their business license and proof of adequate corporate insurance. Get a written estimate, even for a small job, and check that the bid indicates whether it is binding or nonbinding. A nonbinding estimate isn’t a firm price, so ask the mover what it’s based on and how much it can increase.
How much will it cost to move to or from Bridgeport, Connecticut?
Every move is different, but each one is priced based on the shipment’s weight and the trip’s distance. A local job can often be completed for under $1,000, while a long distance relocation averages near $4,500. It’s best to compare quotes from several movers before choosing one.
Types of Moves Offered in Bridgeport, Connecticut
Residential Movers in Bridgeport, Connecticut
Residential moves are the quintessential move in the household goods mover industry. All of the moves that involve changing homes are considered residential. You could be moving to a new city, or to a new country, and it would still generally fall under this category. This term is mostly used to differentiate between commercial moves and personal moves.
When it comes to residential, several things affect the cost depending on the distance. For closer distances, like local moves, time will be the biggest factor. However, for moves that exceed 100km, it will be distance and the number of items to move that will affect the cost the most.
Office/Commercial Movers in Bridgeport, Connecticut
When performing a commercial relocation, you absolutely must work with professionals. Attempting to perform an office relocation on your own, or without a moving company that has worked with these in the past, can quickly lead to disaster. You will be moving fragile equipment that needs a crew that understands how to handle it, and any damage to this equipment could lead to issues opening the office at the new location.
Not to mention that recouping these damages could cost you a lot more than you would save by doing it on your own. Work with a mover that knows their stuff. Work with Three Movers
Military Movers in Bridgeport, Connecticut
Military moves are those that occur when you move from one base to another. As such, they are often handled by the government directly, with them cooperating with an approved mover to take care of your belongings. But that doesn’t mean that this is your only option. You can choose to take care of the move on your own.
In that case, you would be reimbursed for the expenses, based on a list of approved expenses, at the end of the move. In some cases, you might even be granted an advance on your expenses to help you take care of the move. If you choose to handle the move without the government, a good idea would be to contact a mover. Like Three Movers.
International Movers in Bridgeport, Connecticut
International moves are not precisely simple. You need to worry about a lot of stuff. Are you transporting your stuff via cargo plane, which is fast but pricey, or freight cargo, which is slow but more affordable?
Do you know the list of items that you are forbidden from entering into the destination country? Or do you have the paperwork necessary to do so?
There are a lot of questions to answer when it comes to international moves. But there is one that has a simple answer: Who can help me with such a move? Three Movers.
Flat-Rate and Hourly Movers
Flat rates are usually reserved for long-distance relocations. An hourly rate wouldn’t make much sense when you are looking at a moving project that could take days if moving to a different state. With flat rates, a moving manager is sent to your home to inspect your items and give you a quote based on what they see.
For hourly rates, you are mostly charged based on the number of times that it takes the moving crew to load your stuff into the truck, get it to the new place, and unload everything. This option can be very affordable for short distances, especially if you find ways to reduce the overall time the move will take.

Packing and Crating
Packing is the cornerstone of the moving process. You can’t start your move properly until everything is properly packaged and labeled. Or perhaps it is more accurate to say that packaging is when the real move begins. It isn’t very glamorous, but proper packaging is extremely important to ensure the integrity of your belongings.
If you don’t package your stuff right, you might end up getting a bad surprise once you arrive with broken items or torn boxes. If you don’t know how to package properly, you can just ask our crews and they’ll take care of it for you as part of our packing service.
Insurance is a very important component of a successful moving project. That’s why you are provided with a least a basic form of insurance as part of any moving package. This is required by federal moving regulations, so don’t trust a moving company that doesn’t include at least basic insurance coverage as part of its services.
Now Three Movers does have basic insurance coverage, but also a more comprehensive option if you want to transport your belongings with complete tranquility. While we assure you that every moving project is done with care and caution, accidents sometimes can’t be avoided, and this way you won’t have to worry about any negative outcomes.
The moving option you need if you are looking for a “white-glove” or luxury experience. If you select our full-service move option, you won’t have to lift a finger. Our moving crew will take care of the packaging, dismantling of furniture, loading everything into the truck, and doing it all again in reverse at your home location.
Sure, this might be a pricier option than going with a partial move. But for those cases where time is of the essence, or you need extra special care, full-service moves are just the right way to go.
If you need to leave some of your stuff behind temporarily while you prepare your new space, we have a solution for you.
Three Movers has its own storage facilities that we can provide you for temporary storage purposes. If you find that you need more than a few weeks of storage, we can also get you in contact with a long-term storage provider.
Same-day moves are for those occasions where you just have to get your stuff on the road and onto the destination right away. Maybe you didn’t have time to book a moving company, or you simply forgot to do it. It doesn’t really matter, Three Movers has your back in any case.
We can assist you with a move as soon as you contact us. So long as we have the necessary equipment and crew available, we’ll have someone over at your place right away.
If you need to transport your vehicle across the country, who better to do so than the company you are already trusting to transport the rest of your goods? Three Movers has a wide range of transportation options for vehicles. Contact us for more details.

Frequently Asked Questions
Is My Move Local or Long-Distance?
Generally speaking, if your move is within 100 miles, it is a local move. If it exceeds 100 miles, this move is considered as a long-distance one. Interstate moves are categorized as long-distance.
How Far in Advance Should I Plan?
We highly recommend that customers contact the moving company two to six weeks in advance, depending on whether your move is local or long-distance.
During this period, it is best to start planning your move. Your moving manager will help you throughout this process.
When Should I Move To Bridgeport?
It is best to move to the historic seaport city of Bridgeport in April. The month of April in Bridgeport has pleasant weather that will make your move less stressful. This is also one of the less busy months for movers.
I Don’t Have Boxes To Pack My Things. Where Can I Find Cardboard Boxes In Bridgeport?
This depends on where you are. An alternative you can try is to check out Craigslist and Facebook Marketplace. If you need a box right away, grocery stores, book stores, and recycle drop-off points might be selling some.
Can I Add/Remove Services?
The services you avail of are personalized to your needs and wants. You can entirely customize your moving process, which is why it’s crucial to coordinate with your moving manager. We recommend that you finalize your plans beforehand. We can accommodate last-minute changes, but it will depend on the agreement between you and the moving company.
What Items Will Not Be Loaded by The Moving Crew?
Plants, animals, chemicals, and flammable materials are some items that the moving crew will not load.
For more information regarding this, we recommend that you check out the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) website.
How Long Does It Take For The Moving Crew To Clear Out A House?
Clearing out a house will depend on the number of your items, the size of your house, and the services you chose. If everything’s good to go, the crew can do the job in an hour or less. However, if you availed of the complete moving services, the team will need to mark and pack your items before loading. The job can take around 1-2 hours, depending on the number of items and the specifics of the moving process.
Should I Be Worried About Packing My Own Things?
That depends if you want to do the packing yourself or if you want to leave everything for the moving crew. If you decide to avail of the complete moving service, we’ll take care of packing your items. If you choose to do it yourself, we’d be happy to oblige with this request.
It’s best to start your packing a month before moving day. You should start with packing items you need less such as seasonal items.
Do You Offer Free Insurance?
As a fully licensed company, we are bound by the law to provide insurance for our customers. We provide two types of insurance – basic insurance and complete protection. Basic insurance is free for all customers, but it doesn’t cover all of the items you have. If you want to be fully protected, we recommend you get complete protection as an additional service.
Is It Possible That I Have To Pay More Than The Initial Estimate?
Only if you refuse a physical inspection of the premises. In that case, the estimate given will be solely based on information shared during the initial consultation call. While the estimate can be fairly accurate, there are instances where the information given by the customer is inaccurate. On moving day, the moving company may discover that you have more items or a larger house than what was in the plans. The moving company could charge extra in instances like these.
I Have A Complaint. Who Should I Contact?
If you have complaints regarding your moving company, you should contact the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) at 1-800-832-5660.
