When choosing a long-distance moving company, you want to make sure that the company you choose will deliver reliable and hassle-free service. Experience and skill take precedence over price when selecting an interstate or coast-to-coast mover. This is why LeonExpress Movers are the movers of your choice. Our dedication, diligence, and professionalism will ensure that your cargo is moved safely so that you don`t have to worry about ANYTHING!

The fees for a long distance move are determined by the weight of your cargo and by the distance between the pick-up and drop-off locations, with weight playing a more important role in price determination. This is why it will be cheaper to move a sparsely furnished 4-bedroom house from Toronto to Winnipeg than to move a heavily furnished 10-bedroom house from Toronto to Barrie. Here is some additional information that will help you understand the way fees for long distance moves are determined and to be well prepared for your move: The weight of your items is measured by weighing the loaded truck on a scale. Truck scales are located on all major highways and at some moving facilities. The weight of your cargo is determined by subtracting the weight of the empty truck, called "empty weight" from the weight of the loaded truck. You are allowed to accompany the driver to the scale during the weighing to ensure that everything is in order. Make sure that your mover provides you with an "empty weight" receipt. 

In order to avoid additional charges during the interstate move, you must:

  • Know the layout of your new neighbourhood or apartment complex.

  • Find out whether the destination area can accommodate a large truck.

  • Find out the building restrictions in advance (stairs, narrow drive-in, etc...`).

  • Make arrangements about walkway/elevator access.

It is not the responsibility of the moving company to research the destination area and to make appropriate move-in arrangements. Therefore, the better you are prepared the smother is your move!
