If you are moving from state to state, Dedicated Van Lines offers nationwide long-distance moving services for almost any size move and in 50 states. The company also offers customers responsive guidance for many relocation needs to help you get organized with peace of mind, and if you don't have the time to deal with packing, Dedicated Van Lines offers professional packing and unpacking—including for specialty items such as motorcycles or pianos. If you pick full white-glove service with packing and unpacking, Dedicated Van Lines will offer insurance at the standard rate of $0.60 per pound.

Pricing

Dedicated Van Lines offers a flat $100 price per hour fee for local moves that includes all packing materials, for example, boxes, bubble wrap, and stretch wrap. Dedicated Van Lines only begins charging you from when they get to your house and until the move is completed, with a minimum 6-hour base price. This flat rate includes labor, travel time, fuel, tolls, and taxes.

For longer distance moves, most moving companies give quotes based on:

  • Total weight of items being moved

  • Total move distance

  • Added services (packing, storage, furniture assembly, etc.)

Estimates can come in 3 forms:

Non-binding estimates project the total cost of your move but do not commit to this price—which may be subject to changes, but is generally fairly accurate.

Binding estimates are the exact total cost of a move. Even if the move winds up being less or more expensive than estimated, you will still pay the quoted price.

Dedicated Van Lines only offers a third type of estimate: Binding Not to Exceed. That means that when you are given an estimate, the company will not charge you more than that at the end of the move. While you may pay less, you won’t be hit with additional surprise charges.

You can get an initial quote for your move by calling Dedicated Van Lines' toll-free number or by filling out an easy, quick online form. The company offers a binding rate per cubic foot price so that you only pay for what you move, and once you receive a quote from your moving coordinator, you will have a solid idea of what the move will cost in total. While you will not be able to get an accurate quote without contacting Dedicated Van Lines directly, ballpark estimates for moving a 3-bedroom home locally are around $500-$1500 while long distance moves range from around $6,000-$10,000.

Moving Process

The moving process with Dedicated Van Lines begins by getting an initial quote, either by calling them directly or by filling in the simple online quote form. Once you have answered some basic information about the size of your home, how long you have lived in your home, and where you are moving to, you will also be able to choose from among a range of additional moving services such as packing services or storage. You will also be asked the date of your move—you should know that Dedicated Van Lines is accomodating of very fast moves although they recommend a minimum of 2 months.

You may be asked to provide video or pictures of your home so that it is easier for Dedicated Van Lines to provide an accurate estimate. The company will also assign you a moving coordinator who will be available to guide you through the process.

On your chosen moving day, Dedicated Van Lines will arrive at your home with the van, loading crew, and driver. If you have requested packing services or specialty items moving, then the crew will get the contents of your home wrapped and packed before loading everything onto the van.

Once everything is loaded onto the van, your possessions will be taken to your new home unless you have requested storage. Whether your items are arriving at a storage unit or the final destination, a local loading crew will unload all of your possessions carefully. If you have requested white-glove service, the crew will also unpack the contents and assemble any furniture taken apart for the move.

“We found dedicated van lines on one of our moving searches they were one of 10 companies that would contact us. I felt that they were the best company for the job by the length of time in business and of course doing the moves them self with their own employees. We had a very bad experience in the past and we want to do anything we could to avoid that from happening again. The staff was extremely friendly and there wasn’t a question that they cannot answer. The movers were on time shrink wrapped in blanket wrapped all the furniture and they were off on their way this was a movie that was done professionally successfully and fast.” -Joe Mayer
