To find the best long-distance movers in Washington, DC, compare companies side by side in an online search. This way, you can browse the top movers in your area and read their customer reviews. Pay particular attention to reviews mentioning problems that might have occurred and how they were resolved. 

You can also visit the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration’s Household Goods Program to see if there’s any available information about the moving company’s complaint history or safety rating. The movers you choose should also have the required level of insurance.

Once you’ve narrowed down the top long-distance moving companies, ask for free estimates. Give the movers as much information about your upcoming move as possible so you receive an accurate estimated price.
