Types of Long Haul Moves

Split Shipment: If you are moving a long distance, but don’t require the entire capacity of the moving truck to transport your belongings, consider taking advantage of a split shipment. It is an extremely cost effective way to move because the cost of time and travel is split between you, and the other individual you are sharing the truck space with. To further organize the process we colour code each shipment to ensure that each delivery to the new locations is flawless.

This method is consistently used by moving companies across North America. This style of delivery can take longer than it would for “exclusive use.” Delivery is usually set up over a 5 to 14 day, or, 5 to 21 day period. click here.

Exclusive Use: This is a unique service we offer here at Tender Touch Moving. “Exclusive Use” means the truck is solely yours and no one else’s belongings will be included in the shipment. Your shipment will still be carefully inventoried to ensure accuracy. The only difference is that your shipment will arrive as quickly as the roads will take us there.

Moving Cost

Split Shipment: It is one of the most affordable ways to move because you are sharing the ride with other families, and are splitting the cost of travel. Each shipment is carefully color coded, inventoried, and separators are used to ensure the accuracy of delivery.

This method is consistently used by moving companies across North America. Delivery with this service takes longer than “Exclusive Use”, usually set up over a spread such as 5 to 14 days or 5 to 21 days.
