Why Working With An Affiliated Moving Agent Is Important For Cross Country Moves


Whether you are moving to Connecticut and the beautiful scenery that is found along the Connecticut River valley and Bear Mountain in northwest Connecticut, or moving away, you need an experienced mover with an established long-distance moving record.

Advantages of an Affiliated Moving Agent

An agent affiliated with a major van line can offer services that small independent movers simply cannot. Being affiliated with United Van Lines provides the ability to offer everything from do-it-yourself options to full-service end-to-end moves. United’s Premium Moving Service gives you the option of using containers to store and transport your goods. Being part of a line like United means having sophisticated online and tracking tools. When you choose an affiliated agent of United Van Lines, you have access to the largest network of services available in the moving industry, for both commercial and residential long-distance moves.

Affiliated agents have to meet rigorous standards and training to remain agents, something not always found in small independent moving companies that may hire temporary workers or friends and family whether qualified or not. For United Van Lines affiliates that means being able to take advantage of computerized learning programs and the Quality Labor Program which requires movers to demonstrate over 150 skills and complete 200 hours of field training. You can expect a high level of professionalism from an agent of United Van Lines.

A company like United has hundreds of affiliated agents and is able to have a local United agent at your destination available to provide services and information. If you are moving to Glastonbury, CT, for example, as the localĀ United Van Lines agent, Capitol Relocation & Logistics would be there to tell you about Rattlesnake Mountain, or about the oldest continually operating ferry in the U.S. that is located there as well. Independent movers can’t provide this level of customer service. Another part of United’s commitment to customer service is represented by its endorsing and supporting MoveRescue, the first industry-endorsed program that provides support for consumers against mover fraud.
