Differences in a Local and National Moving Company

national moving companies

A move within the United States may seem like a daunting task to some, but with the right moving company, your move should be an enjoyable journey. When hiring movers, it’s important to understand the differences between a local moving company and a national moving company. A local moving company is typically privately owned and often operates only in the city or state of origin. A national moving company, on the other hand, often is a larger, nationally known chain that performs local, interstate, and even international moves.

Experience

Because a national moving company often handles more moves per year than a small local moving company, it tends to have more experience. For over 80 years, Allied has been the preferred mover when it comes to national moving companies. With years of experience under our belt, our professional staff has the know-how and experience that is required to make sure that every national move that we perform is successful.

No matter how big or small your national move is, the employees at Allied are well-versed at handling national relocations for individuals, families and employees. Our staff will work hard in order to ensure that our customers receive the very best treatment possible through a moving plan that is tailor made for your specific situation. By working closely with our professional Move Coordinators, you can rest assured knowing that your upcoming national move will be seamless and smooth.

Services

While a local moving company only specializes in packing and moving your boxes from one location in your city to another, a national moving company like Allied is equipped and staffed to handle bigger moves and usually offers more extensive services.

Some of Allied’s moving services include packing materials sales, storage, full- and partial-service packing, piano moving, fragile-only packing, vehicle shipping, online shipment tracking, third-party services and much more. Our wide variety of services will be able to comprehensively cover all aspects of your move. With our exceptional services and staff, Allied is the well-rounded national moving company you can trust for your relocation.

Reputation

Many times, a local moving company’s name will be a relative unknown unless it has been around for a long time. This means it may be difficult to find enough customer experience reviews to form an accurate picture of the company’s performance. But you may have better luck with a national moving company.

When it comes to choosing a national moving company, choose the best available – choose Allied. With Allied, you can rest assured knowing that you will be hiring a moving company with superior moving services that will develop a unique moving plan to specifically meet your relocation needs. Allied will work tirelessly in order to make sure that your national move goes smoothly. No matter where in the nation you are heading and regardless of if you are moving an individual, a family or employees, Allied is the moving company you can trust. Allied possesses the employees and know-how that is required to ensure that your national move goes according to plan.
