In general moving is one of the most stressful experiences ever. Daniel, John, and Casey provided outstanding customer service and were an absolute pleasure to have pack up and move my son’s belongings. They were polite and meticulous with all of my son’s furniture and belongings. I can’t say enough good things about this team and I’m so grateful that I found Davi & Valenti Movers! This was my first ever experience with a stress-free move.

Everything was perfect with this mover. First, he was patient with my ever-changing move schedule due to delays in the new construction. When time came for the move, his crew was hard-working, respectful, easy to deal with and willing to do whatever was needed. Everything was wrapped thoroughly and carefully, and reassembled as needed in my new home They even took away all the boxes and moving trash I had emptied when they finished.

We have had the help of Davi & Valenti Movers several times in the past few years for both long distance and local moves. The most recent involved consolidation of items in a storage locker and moving some of them to our home. The movers were punctual, knowledgeable, efficient, and very pleasant to work with. The move went rapidly and smoothly. We couldn't be happier. We would recommend Davi & Valenti without reservation.

Recently I had Davi and Valenti Movers in Sarasota, FL pack my household goods for a move to Michigan. I have moved several times with different companies but these guys are first class! From the moment John Savage gave me a quote to the day the truck left my driveway, they were right on top of the entire process. I was so impressed with the way they covered my furniture and handled my glass and pictures with such care. They treated everything as if it was their own merchandise! The team was friendly and courteous and extremely well organized. This is the best company I have ever used. I highly recommend them.

The absolute best. Ray and his crew are professional, hard working, friendly, courteous,and know their jobs through and through. Careful with everything, drop what they’re doing to assist homeowners with questions or projects. Adjusted their schedule to accommodate our changing needs. We used them 2-1/2 years ago and couldn’t be happier that we hired them again.Very competitive pricing. Highest recommendation possible. Thank you Ray and crew.

I just got done today with these guys and moved into my new home. Raymond and his team showed up with great attitudes and I watched how each piece was wrapped. At the end they asked if there was anything else they could do. I had someone else come quote the job and after reading the reviews and speaking with John who sold me the job, I was much more at ease at eases with them.. It cost exactly what I was quoted. Thanks John and Raymond and all the guys. I almost forgot Nancy who calls through out the job to see how I was feeling about it. I would use them again without question.

Very impressed with the services received from Davi & Valenti Movers. Our initial contact with John gave us a very good idea of price and work schedule. Good communication throughout the process. Kenny and his crew were exceptional people. They were friendly, efficient and extremely hard-working. Nancy, from their office, checked in during Move-out & Move-in to see how things were progressing. A 5 Star Review from me! Couldn’t have gone any better! Highly recommend.

Made a fair estimate on my move from Florida back to DC. Followed through with the move in a timely manner. Few items were damaged beyond repair. They were friendly and courteous during stressful times. They used Stevens movers and that crew were very professional also. I have moved many times and as moves go this was above average.

This was the most amazing group of magicians not movers. I went from a 5k home to a 2500 townhouse with ONLY a circular stairway and there was nothing they could not do. From huge bedroom sets upstairs to a piano, pool table and 20 years worth of stuff nicely divided for storage and delivery. They did not lose anything and everyone was more than helpful making sure all was ok before leaving every day. A weeklong project that could not have been handled more professionally. It was not cheap, neither is my belongings. I got what I paid for and more. Thank you again, especially Mike and John.

Company was very accomodating when my moved date changed at last minute. Price was reasonable and garanteed in writing. Movers were efficient and with the exception of one very disagreeable man, the rest made a difficult day as good as possible. I did have a small bit of damage as men were moving a huge amount of furnishings and trying to work quickly on a very hot day. I would recommend this company and would use them again.

Mike and Walter did an excellent and careful job of moving my furniture from a condo to my new home. All furniture was wrapped in quilted pads or shrink wrapped. They had to negotiate 19 stairs and never bumped a wall or the furniture. Carpets were covered and they disassembled and reassembled all of the beds for me. All work was done within the estimated time and cost. Highly recommended.

What Does It Cost to Hire a Long-Distance Moving Company?

The moving industry defines long-distance moves as moves that cross state lines. Long-distance moves are often also referred to as cross-country moves or interstate moves.

The cost of hiring a long-distance moving company varies greatly. It depends on many factors, including the distance of the move, the size of your home and office, the number of items you need to move, and the weight of your belongings. This is why obtaining moving quotes that are transparent, detailed, and free from hidden charges is crucial.

Our research shows long-distance moves from Florida generally cost between $2,200 and $5,700, with a general national average of $3,950. Of course, the cost of your long-distance move could be below or above that range based on the distance of your move and the services you require, among other factors. This is why it is an excellent practice to get three different moving quotes before deciding which moving company to partner with

At Davi & Valenti Movers, we provide free in-home and virtual moving quotes. We take pride in offering transparent pricing that guarantees no hidden fees. Our experience since 1979 enables us to accurately assess your moving needs and provide a fair and accurate quote. Call us at (941) 727-1459 or complete our online form for a free moving estimate.

What Services Are Included in a Long Distance Move, and What Services Cost Extra?

Generally, long-distance moves include loading and unloading, furniture disassembly and reassembly, and transportation. Extra services such as packing and auto transport typically come at an additional cost.

At Davi & Valenti Movers, all loading, unloading, and transportation is included in your long-distance move. We also offer free disassembly and reassembly of furniture to protect your items best. Besides the standard services, we offer packing and unpacking, warehouse storage, piano moves, and auto transport services at an additional cost. In addition, we provide senior moves explicitly catering to the unique needs of older adults. We aim to provide a smooth moving experience that caters to all your requirements.

How Do the Movers Protect My Items? Do Moving Companies Offer Packing and Unpacking Services?

Reliable moving companies ensure the utmost protection for your belongings by using padded moving vans and trucks, moving blankets and dollies, and professional loading and unloading techniques. Most full-service moving companies offer packing and unpacking services at an additional cost.

Suppose you choose to include packing and unpacking services in your move. In that case, the moving company’s professional packers will come to your home or office a few days before the move at an agreed-upon time to carefully pack up as many items as you’d like. Most moving companies offer both partial and full-service packing and unpacking services.

At Davi & Valenti Movers, we take extra precautions to protect your belongings. We equip our moving vans and trucks with padding, and we use moving blankets and dollies for safe loading and unloading. We also offer partial and full-service packing and unpacking services, with quality packing supplies included, to help you settle into your new place more comfortably. To learn more about our packing and unpacking offerings, check out our Packing Services page.

What is Moving Valuation? How Do Moving Companies Cover Lost or Damaged Items?

In the moving industry, “insurance” is called “valuation.” Moving companies usually offer at least two types of valuation: limited liability coverage and full value protection. Limited liability coverage is the minimum level of liability a mover must assume, which comes included with every move at no additional cost. Federal law requires all moving companies to offer compensation of at least 60 cents per pound per item lost or damaged.

However, this basic coverage only satisfies some customers, so most moving companies offer full value protection at an additional cost. If a customer purchases full-value protection, the moving company will have to repair, replace, or refund each item lost or damaged at a fair market value.

At Davi & Valenti Movers, we offer both types of valuation to protect your belongings. Besides providing federally mandated limited liability coverage, we also offer full value protection at an additional cost for greater peace of mind during your move. In addition, we offer extraordinary value coverage for each item that is valued at $100 or more per pound. This way, you will have the amount of coverage of your choosing.

How Much Time Do Long-Distance Moves Usually Take? How Do Moving Companies Determine the Delivery Date?

The timing of a long-distance move depends on factors like the size of your home or office, the distance, and the number of items to be moved. Depending on these factors, long-distance moves can last anywhere from one to three days up to two to three weeks.

Moves that require 200 to 1700 miles of travel take about 3-14 days on average. Moves under 200 miles usually only take one to three days, while moves that require travel above 1700 miles typically take anywhere from one to three weeks.

At Davi & Valenti Movers, we work closely with our clients to create a timeline that fits their schedules and needs. Before you decide to partner with us for your long-distance move, we will get you a timeline and delivery so you know exactly what to expect. Our extensive experience enables us to provide an accurate estimate and ensure timely delivery.

Are Moving Crews Trained and Experienced, and How Do Moving They Handle Fragile and Valuable Items?

Reputable moving companies employ trained and experienced crews who handle all types of moves, including fragile and valuable items. Some moving companies hire seasonal movers during the busy season in the summer months. Reliable moving companies ensure all of their movers, including seasonal staff, are background checked and well-trained. However, it is always good to double-check before your move.

At Davi & Valenti Movers, our professional moving team undergoes meticulous training to handle valuable and delicate items like pianos and vehicles. Our moving crew consists of well-trained and experienced professionals, all permanent employees. Some moving team members have been with us for a few decades. To learn more about our team, our company, and our commitment to customer service, check out our About Us page.

What Do I Do If My Items Are Damaged or Lost During the Move?

If an issue arises, the general dispute resolution process involves filling out a valuation claim form and contacting the moving company. A final walk-through and audit of your items and home are recommended before signing off on the Bill of Lading at the end of your move.

At Davi & Valenti Movers, we prioritize client satisfaction and have a straightforward process for dealing with any issues that might arise.  Just fill out our claims form, and we will contact you shortly.

What Restrictions or Rules Do Long-Distance Moving Companies Have to Follow?

In terms of rules, federal law requires companies to have a USDOT license to execute long-distance moves. Companies cannot move hazardous items such as nail polish, nail polish remover, paint thinner, engine fluid, and household cleaning products. In addition, moving companies cannot complete long-distance moves without obtaining BIPD and Cargo Insurance Policies. Moving companies also have to register with the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Association in order to move across state lines. Since this registration has an expiration date, it needs to be renewed every two years.

When you are looking for a long-distance moving company, ensure they have the correct licenses and insurance. When a company moves long distances and crosses state lines, it must follow the regulations set by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA). If you are struggling to find a reliable moving company, use the FMCSA’s helpful moving checklist.

Davi & Valenti Movers operates under our individual USDOT license #2388113. We also have a state license, Florida IM #2185, and a motor carrier license, MC #1078337-C. At Davi & Valenti Movers, we adhere strictly to all regulations, ensuring a lawful, hassle-free move.
