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
Hire the Right Long Distance Mover
All interstate moves require special authority to perform any part of a move from one state to another. United is fully licensed to provide interstate moving services. If you are moving across state lines, we recommend looking into trusted moving companies such as United.
- Nationwide movers may have the systems and technology to keep you in the loop throughout your move. Also, some have a network of local agents across the country that can meet your moving needs, near or far.
- Paperwork and documentation that is required by federal laws and regulations for moves that go across state lines should be handled by an authorized mover. ALWAYS ensure that your moving company follows FMCSA’s regulations that grant authorization for interstate moves.
