- LOCAL MOVING
- You’re moving, and how far away you’re moving will likely determine how a moving company charges you. Make sure you understand the terminology and the implications of each type of move before you get started. We have compiled some information that may help you understand how we come up with our customized quotes for you.
Local Moving Local moves are considered moves that are a short distance within the same state. The mileage, size, or scale of the move is not a factor in determining if a move is local or not; whether your shipment crosses a state line is what will differentiate a local or intrastate move from a long-distance move.
Intrastate Moving Intrastate moves may typically be longer distance moves that occur within the same state. These moves might not be considered local even though they are within the same state.
Interstate Moving Interstate moves are different than local or intrastate moves because they involve moving goods across state lines. Interstate moves may also be referred to as long-distance, cross country, or state-to-state moves. Interstate moves require special authority to perform any part of a move from one state to another. Federal regulators grant this authority.
