Long distance Richmond, Virginia moving companies

Choosing a mover to assist with your long distance move to or from Richmond, Virginia, can be stressful. Movers throw out a lot of unfamiliar terms and phrases like “tariff,” “valuation,” and “bill of lading.” How do you choose the best mover for your project?

Three Movers suggests that you consider the advice from the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (aka FMCSA), which oversees interstate moving companies. FMCSA offers the following recommendations for choosing a moving company:

  1. Limit your search to companies that register with FMCSA (as required by the federal regulations) and maintain appropriate licensing and insurance. You can verify the mover’s DOT status on FMCSA’s SAFER search tool.
  2. Always get a written estimate based on a visual inspection of the goods you want to ship. Don’t accept a verbal bid from a mover. The quote will be more accurate if the company inspects the shipment to evaluate the weight.
  3. Check references and look for reviews at the Better Business Bureau If too many customers have complaints about the mover, consider looking elsewhere.

Local movers in Richmond, Virginia

If you are moving a short distance and not crossing a state line, the mover you engage may not be registered with FMCSA, which oversees interstate jobs. In Virginia, these projects fall under the Department of Motor Vehicles jurisdiction, which has a permit and certificate system for moving companies. Impacted companies must file a tariff with the DMV that details the rates and policies they use to charge their customers. They must also maintain insurance and keep a bond or letter of credit on file.

Ask local movers for the following:

  • Their Virginia permit or certificate
  • Proof of liability insurance
  • How long they have been operating
  • Local references from recent customers

The mover should be willing and able to provide each of these and give you a written estimate for the job.

How much will it cost to move to or from Richmond, Virginia?

Local moves are typically priced at an hourly rate and can often be completed for less than $1,000. If you have a substantial home or are seeking a full service move, the cost may be more. Long distance jobs are more expensive due to the distance, and the price is calculated according to the shipment’s weight and the mileage. The best approach is to get estimates from several reputable vendors and compare them.

Types of moves offered in Richmond City, Virginia

Residential movers in Richmond City, Virginia

Changing where you live is no small task. Just changing the arrangement in a living room can consume half a day. Yet this is nothing compared to moving all you own to a new space. Residential moves have always been difficult and they are more difficult if you have no help. This is why many people employ the services of family and friends to move their belongings. However, there are times where family isn’t around and friends are busy. In such a case, there is one option left. You can contact a professional moving company. There are a lot of those in Richmond, but selecting a good mover within your budget can be tricky. Luckily, Three Movers operate in Richmond and we offer residential moving services.

Commercial Movers in Richmond City, Virginia

Commercial movers are very vital to the business landscape of Richmond. It is very difficult for businesses to move by themselves. There is a chance of damage to property and equipment. There is even longer downtime while moving because of the complexity. This is why using a professional moving company to get your office or business to a new site is the best choice. They are faster, safer, convenient, and insured. Three Movers is a professional moving company that provides commercial moving services in Virginia.

Military movers in Richmond City, Virginia

Once you are part of the military, you know that there will be a couple of moves to make. Some of the orders to move have a very narrow window. In some cases, people have less than 24 hours to get their things together and move to a different part of the country or even another country. Such circumstances make moving personal stuff a frantic affair. However, third-party moving companies are beginning to provide services tailored to this spartan lifestyle. Many military officers now have the option to get a mover that will pack and move their items in their absence while they report at their new station. They also have the option to hire a mover that will move their stuff to one location and their families to another. Three Movers is one of such companies that provides these unique services in Richmond City, Virginia.

International movers in Richmond City, Virginia

Moving to another country can be very exciting and scary at the same time. You wonder about the new cultures you will experience, the living conditions, the political landscape among other things. When you begin planning for a move, you also worry about how you will move your stuff across borders. You wonder what form of shipping is best for your stuff as well. The best way to handle all of it is to get a professional international moving company that will help you figure all this out. We at Three Movers offer these international moves in different forms and to different countries.

Hourly and Flat Rate Movers in Richmond City, Virginia

Citizens of every city should have the option of flat-rate moves. This is good for those that want to tailor their move to cost a budgeted amount with no additional fees. Flat rate moves are moves where the moving company gives a fixed amount of money that they don’t exceed in any way. This sort of move is good for long-distance moves because you aren’t surprised by new fees. It can be more expensive than hourly rates for short distances but in longer distances, the hourly rates can ramp up in cost. A mover cannot finalize a flat rate move until you get a binding estimate that they cannot change. However, you must read the fine prints on the estimate and agreement to ensure there are no hidden costs. Three Men provides flat rate moves and hourly rate moves in Richmond.

Additional Moving/Shipping Services in Richmond City, Virginia

Packing and Crating

If you are moving as quickly as possible or you just don’t know how to go about packing your stuff, know that there is a moving service that can help you. Packing services are services that involve hiring a moving company to pack your stuff into boxes and other containers ready for transportation. Most moving companies bring their own supplies to pack the items. Crating is similar to packing but different in execution. Crating involves the use of crates for items too delicate for moving boxes.


If you want to move your items, insurance should be in your budget. If you are moving the items yourself, you can get a third-party insurance company to insure them. If you are using the services of a moving company, ensure they have some form of insurance or coverage for your stuff. This will give you peace of mind as you move because accidents do happen in moves and things might get damaged or lost. Three Movers gives you the kind of peace of mind you desire with our coverage plans of different categories.

Full-Service Moves

There are situations where you cannot be physically involved in your move. You might not have the time or even be available at all. In these cases, you should consider a full-service move. Ideally, if you can afford it, always go for a full-service move. This is a moving service where a company is hired to pack, load, ship, and unpack the items without the involvement of the owner of the items. Three Movers provides this service in Richmond.


Storage is a service required by most long-distance moving clients. It involves a company storing items on behalf of clients. Many moving companies provide storage services as well as moving services. Three Movers provides all sorts of storage services in Richmond.

Same-Day moves

Same-day moves are moves that a client plans and initiates within a day. Sometimes, a person has picked a moving day weeks prior but hasn’t made any concrete plans until the moving day. Many moving companies provide this service as many apartment movers move in a pinch. Three Movers is one of those companies that provides same-day moves at fair rates.
