Long Distance Moving

Thompson Discount Movers & Storage is a long distance moving specialist. Long distance moves are different then local moves and require a special set of skills, licenses and experience. Our years of experience and our affiliation with a large national network of fellow moving experts as an interstate agent for Bekins Van Lines, Inc., have taught us how to achieve hassle free, on-time moves time after time.

How Are Long Distance Moves Priced? Did You Know? A "Long Distance Move" is defined by federal regulations as any move of 100 miles or more and any move that crosses a state line (even if under 100 miles). The two main factors that determine the cost of your move are the distance you are moving and the weight of your shipment. Like most people, you probably don't know the total weight of your belongings, and we will be unable to determine the exact weight of your shipment until the actual day of the move. So in order to determine an approximate weight for your move, just use our FREE Online Estimate system. We also welcome you to join us at a government regulated weigh station while we weigh the truck with and without your shipment fully loaded. The difference between those two weights is the weight of your shipment.

Additional factors that may contribute to overall cost of move:

  • Packing services you order from us.

  • So called "Accessorial Charges". These are things that keep the truck away from the door of your new or old home such as flights of stairs, elevators, narrow access lane, etc.

  • Your choice of additional value protection for your possessions.

  • Storage of your goods while you settle in your new home.

Commercial Moves

Our Business Is Moving Your Business!

Thompson Discount Movers, LLC has extensive experience in relocating businesses and is well equipped to handle any type of commercial move.

We know that your move is as unique as your business or organization and we know how to make your life easier during your transition.

Let us become your "moving department." Our commercial move specialists will not only give you a competitive bid for your business’ commercial move, but will actually help you plan the entire move process.

Planning Your Move

Well before the day of your move, Thompson Discount Movers' Commercial Move Specialist will meet with your company's move coordinator to work out the entire move process creating a move plan that includes:

  • Satisfactorily answering all questions you may have regarding the move.

  • Solving potential problems in advance.

  • Establishing a time table for your move.

  • Developing a floor plan for your new facility.

What Should Your Employees Handle?

For some businesses it makes more sense to have us pack their entire business from A to Z, freeing their employees to more important tasks.

Other companies choose to have their employees pack only their own desks / work stations.

If you decide to have your employees do some or most of the packing we will deliver the appropriate boxes and other packing materials prior to the move, according to the move plan we work out with your move coordinator.

Our project manager can come to your business and train your employees to pack anything that can reasonably be packed by your employees.

Thompson Discount Movers's project manager is there to help you decide which route is best for your business and budget.

Steps we'll take together to make your commercial move a success:

  • Before the move our project manager and your move coordinator will go over your new facility's floor plan.

  • Together they will assign colors to each area of your new facilities.

  • We will furnish special colored labels. These are special labels designed for the moving industry: they are secure enough to stay in place while in transit but will not damage the finish of your equipment when they are removed at the end of the move.

  • You / we can then attach a properly colored label to each item and in addition mark that label with a unique number.

  • Now you can indicate on the new facility's floor plan where you want that item to end up at your new location.

  • Prior to the day of the move, our commercial moving project manager will talk to the building management of both the building you are moving out of and the building you are moving into. We will ascertain their requirements to ensure a smooth move day.

  • We will belay any damage concerns by the buildings' management by providing each of them with a certificate of insurance from our insurance company naming the building's owners as additional insured.
