Long distance moves
If your relocation distance is over 100 miles from your current location then your move considers being long distance. Companies have different ways of charges, most common are per pound or per space taken (cubic feet).
Long distance moving system is over 100 years old. As it always being, local movers would make a packing and load to their local truck, then unload it to their in-transit warehouse. When they would have enough shipment to go one direction your furniture will be transferred to the long distance truck-trailer. Most moving companies are giving one month free of storage for the people that have to get situated at destination point before they can receive their furniture, plus it gives the company time to pickup more shipments, which are moving the same direction.
Delivery date and time
It is very important part of your move. Every moving company has set reasonable time for delivery ranged from different destinations. Usually delivery window starts from your earliest available day to except the furniture at destination. When you are releasing your furniture to the movers, they will ask you about your first available day for delivery. You need to enter the day when you’ll be physically available to except the furniture, because movers can show up earlier and the extra charges may apply to your bill.
Long distance with straight delivery

Based on delivery distance and the truck-trip routing, your goods will arrive the same or within a couple of days from the day of pickup. You need to be available to accept your goods at destination as early as the truck will arrive.
