Move advice: Los Angeles to Hampton Roads, VA

Postby VA_Bound » Tue Oct 18, 2005 6:38 pm

My husband and I are moving to Virginia next month and we are looking for a full-service moving company. An LA-based company told us we should look into back hauling from a Virginia company to save money. Can anyone recommend a good full-service mover in the Chesapeake/ Hampton Roads area that does long-distance moves? Thanks in advance for your help! VA_Bound

That is strange advice! You want an LA based mover who can come to your home and do a visual estimate. A mover in VA could not do that! Read the article at the above *) and get 2 to 3 inhome estimates.

Then come back here and report on the results.

There are several good van line agents in the Virginia Tidewater area. Unfortunately, most don’t have large hauling fleets.

If you are still looking for a good full service mover that might need backhaul from the west coast, send Michael a PM. Security Storage Company (Atlas) is based in Goldsboro, North Carolina. The Hilldrup Companies, a United agent based in Stafford, Virgina, has an office in Richmond. Both are quality companies that have large hauling fleets.

You might also try Alexander Mobility Services in Tustin. They are an Atlas agent with an office in Baltimore. Ace Relocation Systems (also Atlas) in Long Beach also has an office in Bmore. Berger Transfer and Storage (Allied) has an office in Fullerton and Charlotte, NC. Suddath Relocation (United) has an office in La Mirada and Odenton, MD. McCollister’s Transportation Group (United) has offices in Santa Fe Springs, CA and Alexandria, Va. All of these companies have large hauling fleets, although McCollister’s handles more special products this time of year and might not be as competitive.

Good Luck!
