How long does long distance moving take?
One of the most anguishing moments of moving is waiting for the shipment with all of your belongings to arrive. The estimate arrival time is 10-14 days. While delays are common, it’s important to stay communicated with your moving company. There are many factors that can affect the delivery window and the estimated arrival time Such as:
Time of the year.
Certain times are busier for moving companies. If you happen to be moving on the peak season, you can expect some delay in your delivery.
Distance of your move.
Distance is a key element, the further you move, the longer it’s going to take.
Other shipments on the truck.
Most of the time, the truck will not only have your belongings but other people’s as well. There will be other deliveries before yours, which can delay your own.
