Changing residences from one part of the city to another is a common enough experience. Moving from the city to the country is also a common experience. Now, moving to another state or clear to another country or continent is fast becoming a common experience. It should not really be difficult. We pack our bags and go. If you have kids, pets and lovely things in your home, you really cannot just pack your bags and go. Often, you will need to transport your pets and things from one part of the country to another. You will need a long distance car service.
Moving to another part of the country is not easy. For one, we often want to bring some of our things that mean the world to us. There’s the clay handprint of your kids when they were in kindergarten. There are the photo albums, the family movies and your grandmother’s china. There may be an antique vase, armchair, desk or lamp stand. There are your power tools and your workbench or your collection of guitars or vinyl records. There are your children’s toys and books. You simply cannot pack them all and ship them. And you may not have time to haul all your things from your old house to your new one, either. One solution is to try a long distance car driving service.
There are companies that rent out trucks and trailers with drivers to transport your possessions from one part of the country to another. They often charge for the rental of the truck and/or trailer and they charge the cost of the fuel and toll fees. The final cost will include the charge for the professional driving service of the driver billed in number of hours or days it took to transport and deliver your things.
A long distance transportation service may even include a professional driver transporting your possessions using your own car, thus transporting and delivering not only your things but also your car from your old house to your new house. For this service, you only need to pay for the fuel, toll way fees and the driver’s professional fee billed in hours. You won’t have to pay rental on the car as the car is yours.
This works very well when you have to relocate and report for work within a short time thus leaving you without ample time or opportunity to transport your own things or your car cross-country. A professional driver can drive your car with your things in tow right at your doorstep. You can trust the professional driver and the long distance car service as your car will probably have GPS. Most drivers for long distance travel services are reliable and they are insured. The driver will probably have a cell phone you can call or track using GPS. You can email or chat with the driver at the times when he is resting at a rest stop.
Some drivers for long distance car services are choosy about the things they are transporting. Some will only transport things and pets but not people. Some refuse to transport pets. Some insist on inspecting the things they are transporting and taking pictures of them before actually agreeing to transport them. This assures the driver that he is not transporting cargo that is illegal or dangerous. Photographs also help with insurance claims or police reports should there be a need.
What can you do to be assured that you are entrusting your precious things to reliable people? Check the company’s website. Compare prices. Check the Better Business Bureau to see if there are complaints filed against the driver or the company. If you are truly resourceful, do a background check on the driver to see if he has any outstanding traffic violation tickets or if he has an arrest record for theft, reckless driving or DUI.
Long distance driving services will transport your things for you when you cannot.
