What Is a Long-Distance Move?
Long-distance moves are different than local moves because they involve moving goods across state lines.
- Local Moves: Moving a short distance within a metro area within the same state
- Intrastate Moves: Longer distance moves that occur within the same state
- Long-Distance Moves: Moving across state lines
What Does a Long-Distance Move Cost?
No two moves are the same. At United Van Lines, we understand that cost is a big concern when hiring professional movers. Learn more about our pricing structure and quote process to help you understand the ins and outs of moving costs.
