Our company has one of the best long-distance moving services, and we strive to make every move a happy and stress-free experience for our clients. Before you decide to hire us, contact us to give you a free online quote, or you can do this alone with a couple of clicks on our website.
Interstate moving demands coordination of many things that need to be done, from car shipping, packing your pots and pans to storage units. And instead of finding different companies for each service, you can hire State to State Movers to do all that for you. With our professional team, your long-distance move will be smooth, and best of all, it will be transparent. We base our price according to your inventory list, and once you get a quote, the price will stay the same. You will be in charge of the whole process, and if you wish to change the price, you can do it by removing items from the list (or adding them) up to one business day prior to your long-distance relocation.
As we mentioned, with State to State Movers, you will get all the services you need, and packing services are one of those. If you hire us just for moving service, aside from loading and unloading all your items on a truck, you will get free of charge standard packing service. This means our professional movers will disassemble all of your furniture, wrap it in high-quality protective material, and put it on a truck. And once you are at your new home, they will reassemble each piece of furniture and place it in the desired position.
Aside from standard, there are full and partial packing services you can book us for. Our professional movers will pack all of the belongings from your inventory list with full service. They will bring packaging supplies such as boxes, labels, and bubble wraps and meticulously pack your belongings, no matter how oddly shaped they are. On the other hand, if you wish our movers to only pack some of your belongings, for example, fragile items, you can hire us for partial packing. Note that partial packing service covers up to 15 boxes of items, while more than that is considered full packaging.
Interstate moving without your four-wheeler is a hard pass, and if you hire us, we can provide you with this service as well. It doesn’t matter if you have one or four cars, our auto transport service can ship all of them in no time. We have open trailers for multiple car shipping in company possession, so no third party will be involved. Your car will be protected with our insurance. For an open trailer, you will be reimbursed up to $100,000 for any external damage that may occur. Furthermore, if you have an expensive or sports car, you can use our enclosed trailer. With this option, your vehicle will be fully protected from any external damages, and best of all, insurance will cover up to $500,000 if any damage happens.
You can also choose which way you wish us to pick up your car and later deliver it. If you wish us to pick up and deliver your vehicle from your old home to your new address, you should contact our agents and ask them about door-to-door pick-up and delivery options. Only if your new home is in a street that is too narrow (which is rare in SLC,) we’ll arrange a hand-over at the nearest street or parking lot available. Of course, you will have a designated agent that will be in charge of the whole move, and they will inform you on time if any changes happen.
You can also choose the terminal to terminal pick up and delivery option. This means you will leave your car at the nearest terminal and pick it up the same way. State to State Moving and Auto Transport has terminals in every major place, and SLC is one of them.
With years of experience, we understand that relocation can come with unpredictable things. You can end up leaving your old home just to realize your new one is not done yet. In this situation, storage units where you can put your belongings are lifesavers. But you don’t need to search for storage units. Because of situations like that, we offer all our clients free storage services for a whole month.
Even though it is rare, accidents can occur, and if they do, your belongings will be insured. Once you hire us, you will get Mandatory Liability Coverage or basic insurance. With this insurance, you will get 60 cents per pound for any items that have been damaged. That applies to all the items we will be transporting on our truck.
On the other hand, if you wish to have higher coverage, you can take our Full Value Replacement Insurance. With FVRI, you will get either replacement or reimbursement in the full market value of any item that gets damaged.
The capital of Utah and the seat of Salt Lake County is also the most populous town in the state. And even though your first thoughts when you think about SLC are temples and Mormons, this amazing desert town has so much to offer. With its proximity to California and Nevada, SLC has become a center of Silicon Slopes spread from SLC to Provo. Dozens of start-ups and big tech companies are located here, such as Adobe, Intel, and SanDisk. And more and more companies are considering relocating some parts of their business here as well.
And even though the unemployment rate in SLC was low with tech moguls, job opportunities have become even more attractive to young professionals. The county is made of 18 cities, including the SLC, but the whole country feels like one big metropolis. The infrastructure is great, and even if you decide to live in Bluffdale, the southernmost, you will need around a 30 minutes ride on I-15 N road.
The housing market in SLC is expanding and growing each year. The Utah housing market has been ranked as the nation’s number one in the past year. Combined with a strong pace of job growth, low mortgage rates, low state and local taxes, and low unemployment, it is not surprising that many Californians decide to sell their properties and move to SLC. A median home value is around $314,000, and a median household income is $60,600.
The SLC and the county are still growing, and expediting your home value will drastically increase in just a couple of years. On the other hand, if you wish to rent first before purchasing a new home, you can rent a one-bedroom apartment in the center for $1,300 and outside the center for $1,000. And we already mentioned that going around will not be an issue.
From cowboy bars where you can ride a mechanical bull, drink beer, and do some “country” waltz to chillout hip places where you can drink homemade beer and listen to jazz, SLC truly has everything for everyone’s taste. And when it comes to the nightlife here, no matter what day it is, you will have a crowded downtown filled with nice and fun people. And even though serving alcohol is not allowed without a special license that owners must pay, few bars or restaurants don’t have this license. And while we are at costs, the beer is between $5 to $7, and meals are $12 to $20. And another useful piece of information – if you drink, you must order a meal. But people usually just order some nachos or fries.
Good nightlife is not all locals can enjoy. If you are interested in great architecture, then Mormon temples will amaze you. You should visit Temple Square and witness the magnificent granite structure, which is believed to be placed on large wheels under foundations, in case followers of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints had to evacuate.
Aside from man-made wonders, such as the biggest mine crater visible from the moon, created by Rio Tinto company, what will amaze you even more is nature that permeates the city as well as surrounding it. The county is placed in the valley between the Wasatch Mountains (part of the Rocky Mountains) and the Oquirrh Mountains, and it is cut with canyons of several rivers. The only downside is that the weather is unpredictable. You can experience all four seasons in one day, and in the summer, the air pollution can get high.
Still, you can compensate for all that with healthy weekend escapes. From skiing (Winter Olympic Games were held here) and hiking to biking – you will have a chance to do all that. There is something for everyone’s taste. You can enjoy beautiful green sunny mornings in the woods while camping or go to the desert to have fun while road driving. Or you can just take an hour-long drive west from the Great Salt Lake and experience real speedy driving on one and only Flats.
And while you are there, continue driving on the same road for half an hour, and you will reach Wendover, Nevada, where you can try your luck in some of the casinos. And if you are worried about the summer heat, there are amazing Utah lakes near SLC where you can cool off, and one of the most popular is Bear Lake, just an hour away from the SLC.
