The differences of long-distance moving and interstate moves versus local moves are the following:
- Time it takes to learn about the new city you are moving to. Research your schools, neighborhoods, real estate markets, crime areas, job growth, population, business trends and other pertinent discoveries before moving long- distance or Moving cross-country.
- More time on the road, as a rule, imparts more risk. Interstate movers will often take extra measures to pad and secure your load to ensure that your belongings arrive intact.
- Regulations for Interstate Moving Companies – A number of federal and state agencies police and regulate interstate moving companies to protect consumers’ property while in transit.
- Most importantly, interstate moving companies are required to provide customers with a copy of Your Rights and Responsibilities When You Move, a booklet published by the U.S. Department of Transportation’s Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration. This publication details the policies and procedures that you need to be aware of when contracting an interstate moving company.
