Preparing For the Long Distance Move
- Our interstate moving companies will have your belongings packed carefully for the long-distance move, with fragile items wrapped and padded and your mattresses bagged.
- Your chosen interstate moving company - a national van line or an independent interstate mover, will pick up your belongings on moving day. All moving companies (long distance and local) must hold a valid USDOT authorization to move household goods, visit FMCSA for more information.
- Your interstate move will be quoted by taking into account your inventory's weight and the distance and time frame of your move. Most cross-country movers will provide an estimate and then charge by the actual weight of your belongings. However, prices by inventory and volume based on your furniture.
Interstate Delivery of Your Goods
- In most cases, your inventory will be driven and reloaded onto an 18-wheeler truck for the interstate drive. You can opt for either: Dedicated delivery: transporting only your own goods aboard one truck.
- Consolidated delivery: sharing the truck space with other inventories.
- Your belongings will be delivered to your new home within an agreed time frame or at a guaranteed date, depending on your agreement with the cross-country movers. Booking in advance raises the likelihood of finding a mover with availability closest to your needs.
