What is a long-distance move?
Long-distance moves are different than local moves (moving a short distance) and intrastate moves (moves that occur within the same state) because they involve moving goods across state lines. Additionally, a long-distance move can also be referred to as a cross-country move or an interstate move, depending on the distance of the move.
Long-distance moves require special authority to transport customers’ items from one state to another. This authority is granted by federal regulators. Van lines that offer long-distance moving are also required by law to carry specific insurance policies. These regulations are designed to protect the customer and their belongings.
Additionally, you can view your rights as a customer of a long-distance moving company. It is important that you are able to distinguish reputable long-distance moving companies from fraudulent or “rogue” movers who have been known for holding personal property hostage for additional fees and other scams.
How much does a long-distance move cost?
Mayflower’s long-distance moving quotes take many factors into account so that you receive a fair quote that is specific to your unique move. We assess the size of your current and new home, the number of floors in your current and new home, the weight of your property and the distance of your move to determine your final moving cost.
It is important to note that all long-distance moves are different which is why we must gather all of the preliminary information before providing you with a number.
