Moving FAQ's

Q: What separates McCorquodale services from other Birmingham moving companies?

A: A sign of our strong commitment is that we are your moving partner, not just your moving company. This is evident from the way we approach each Birmingham move we handle.

A McCorquodale specialist does a walk-through at your home or office to help you plan your move. You will then be assigned a move coordinator, who will work with you to make every phase of your relocation, from packing to settling in, go as smoothly as planned.

Once you have selected McCorquodale as your Birmingham moving or storage partner, you will receive a Pre-Move Information Letter which outlines and confirms your schedule and provides you with pre-move recommendations and tips. While you are preparing for your move, any time of the day or night, you can contact your move coordinator with your questions.

Q: As far as pricing, how does McCorquodale compare to other Birmingham movers?

A: Pricing for different Birmingham movers is essentially based on Intra-State and Inter-State moving.

Intra-State Moving
Alabama’s Public Service Commission regulates Alabama’s Intra-State household moving. The commission publishes a common rate Tariff. This tariff outlines all services and charges and holds all movers within our state responsible for abiding by their set rates, procedures, and policies as set forth by the commission.

This means that if your move does not cross a state line but is greater than 30 miles (less than 30 miles is a Local Move) the move is considered an Intra-State move. All movers must, by law, use the same rates. This means that service is the only important factor in choosing a mover.

Inter-State Moving
Inter-State moves are moves across state lines. From state to state and across the country, we relocate your one item or entire household with the same integrity and quality as a local move. We understand the natural stress of a move, and take the job of managing your state to state move and the movement of your valuable property seriously.

Our record for cross country moves anywhere in the U.S. is another example of our ability to meet any moving challenge. Although we have many competitors, we understand what it takes to earn your business. Our commitment is to be the leader in Inter-State moves with pricing that competes with other Birmingham movers.

Dear Sir:

My husband & I recently used Sidney McLaurin in Jackson on two different occasions, one local and one to AR & we have been extremely impressed by his outstanding service. He is so conscientious polite, detailed, strong, indefatigable, and pleasant. The crews he has assembled are also exceptional. We are very appreciative and wanted to commend him and his leadership to you. He was recommended to us by someone who said, “everyone in Jackson who has something fragile or valuable to move would only use Sidney.” We now will also spread the good word.


Rachel (& Ric)
