Comparing Virginia and West Virginia

Despite their close proximity, there are a lot of differences between Virginia and West Virginia that will affect your move. These include:

  • Population: West Virginia has a population density of 77.1 people per square mile, compared to 202.6 people per square mile in Virginia. So, expect a wide open area in your new home state.
  • Nature: While Virginia is a beautiful state, with miles and miles of coastline along with beautiful parks, there’s a reason West Virginia is so well known for its nature. From the Blackwater Falls to Seneca Rocks, there is no shortage of places to see.
  • Cost of Living: Looking at the cost of living by comparing states doesn’t provide an accurate look, so we’ll look at it by comparing Richmond, VA and Charleston, WV. Overall, Charleston, WV is 15% cheaper to live in than Richmond.

Be sure to keep these key differences in mind as you prepare for your move, such as planning your budget and what you will do when you move in.

What to Look for in Out-of-State Movers

When looking for long-distance movers to take you to West Virginia, you will find that there are a ton of options out there. To help narrow down the field and bring you one step closer to finding the best moving company for you, we put together this list of what to look for in out-of-state movers:

  • No Interstate Affiliation: Being independent allows moving companies to operate more efficiently. With an independent mover, you get a moving company that completes your whole move with one truck and one crew.
  • Correct Licenses: For a move that crosses state lines, you need to find the USDOT number. This is necessary for long-distance moves. You can typically find these license numbers in the footer of your potential mover’s site.
  • No Hidden Costs: Moving from state to state can get expensive. Too many movers take advantage of this by adding more and more costs that you don’t see until it’s too late. Focus your search on movers that promise no hidden costs.

With these tips, you are one step closer to working with the moving partner that fits your needs.

Did you know...?

What is an Inventory?

The driver will generally inventory your shipment as he or she loads it (although it is not required by law). When completed, the inventory provides a detailed, descriptive listing of your household goods, along with the condition of each item when received by the mover.

Be sure that everything listed on the inventory is correct. This is not always the easiest task, as you will find things written on the inventory such as “PBO,” which means “packed by owner.” The contents of this carton cannot be listed, as the driver is simply not able to see inside each box. You will also sometimes find “CP” on a line item in the inventory, which means “carrier packed” container.

You may also notice, in the middle column on your inventory form, a line that has many seemingly random letters and numbers associated with a specific item. This is where a driver uses inventory code to make note of the condition of an item. To understand this code, you can refer to the top of the inventory sheet for a legend that will explain what each code means. For example, SC means scratched; C means chipped; the number 3 refers to the right side of piece; and 8 refers to the top of the piece. This is a simple (and consistent) way for the driver to make note of any irregularities or existing damage.

Remember, this inventory is for you to keep track of what is loaded, and the condition of each item. If damage occurs on a certain piece during the loading process, make a note of the inventory tag number on that item and indicate it in the far-right hand column on the line that corresponds with that piece. This is the document that will be scrutinized when the claims process is initiated, so it is important to have the damage clearly noted.

This inventory should also be used at-destination when your shipment is delivered. Use the inventory to verify the articles that are delivered and, again, note an exception to the condition of any items as they are brought into your home. Point out the damage to the driver.

What often occurs is that a piece of furniture has been in your home for many years and you grow accustomed to looking at it in a certain place and in a certain light. When you bring that same piece into your new home, you may notice damage that may have been there for a long time. The driver will have noted the scratch or chip at your origin residence. If you are not sure if it was existing damage or new damage, ask your driver to explain the condition of the piece as he noted it on the inventory during the loading process. This is the quickest way to distinguish new damage from what was there all along.

Our drivers are incredibly careful about the way they handle your items, and the inventory is their safeguard against potentially fraudulent damage claims. Use this inventory to your advantage in making sure that you are protected, just as the driver uses it to protect himself or herself.
