What to Look for in an Interstate Mover Before Moving to Baltimore from NYC

It’s never easy to uproot your life and transplant it in a new city, especially if you’re leaving a place that feels like home. Interstate moving is stressful and often difficult, but it can be made easier with certain precautions.
Baltimore is just a 3 hour drive from New York City, so you’ll find no shortage of long distance movers willing to take on the trip, but here are a few things to look for when selecting the right company for the job.

Proven Record of Success

Though it’s not a particularly long trip, the drive from NYC to Baltimore is still an interstate move, and as such it requires the expertise of a company with significant experience making these kinds of moves.
There’s a world of difference between providing a moving service within the city and providing one that traverses state lines. Ask potential movers how many interstate moves they’ve completed successfully, or check online for reviews from past customers to gauge the rate of satisfaction.
If you find that a company is not well-versed in long-distance moves, or has a high rate of dissatisfied customers from this kind of trek, you’re better off working with a different company. Taking a gamble with your belongings for the sake of saving a few dollars is a large risk that you’re likely to end up regretting.

Familiarity with The Route

If they’ve been in the business for any length of time, a moving company should be familiar with the route from NYC to Baltimore. This level of familiarity is important for a couple of reasons.
Firstly, a company who knows the trip well will be able to offer you a more accurate quote from the start. Looking at a map and physically making a trip are two very different things, so it’s hard for a company to know the ins and outs of a route until they’re traversed it. Secondly, a high level of familiarity ensures that they’re comfortable making this trip, and that your belongings are in competent hands.

Knowledge of Both Cities 

Finding a New York City based company that is familiar with NYC shouldn’t be too difficult, as most of them likely make many local moves everyday. Finding a moving company that knows Baltimore may prove a larger challenge, but it’s important to attempt.
If the movers you choose know the city of Baltimore at least somewhat, you minimize the risk of them getting lost or encountering unexpected issues en route to your new apartment. It’s better to work with a company who is genuinely experienced with moving customers from NYC to Baltimore.

Great group of MOVERS.

The movers arrived 15 minutes ahead of schedule, when it was cold and rainy. I wasn’t able to pack everything since my mother had passed away a few days before my move. They made me feel safe and helped pack things gently and quickly. They were patient and very positive and compassionate. They were too notch. Highly recommend their services.

Dear Stefan, I want to tell the public how wonderful your company has treated me. Has stored my possessions and has delivered everything with the utmost of care. Thank you will all my heart for the service you gave me and the protection you provided for all my things these years. If I had to rate your company I would give you a ten…!

P.S. when I got the delivery we thought there was an antique shelf missing but I found that behind some boxes after the truck left…So I have it all and am filled with joy…
