Long distance moving is a complicated and challenging task. Unlike local or intra-city moves, long distance moves fall under federal law for moving things between state to state. Many people don’t know much about long distance moving, but there are many options available. Whether you choose to hire a moving company to do the job, take a trip to your local movers, or make the move yourself, there are several important factors to keep in mind before beginning the move.
First, interstate and intrastate moves must be handled by licensed and insured carriers. While it may not seem important at the time, the safety of your belongings during a long distance move is paramount. Uninsured people are not the only ones who are legally responsible for injuries during the move, but unfortunately, there are many people out there who are careless and either not adequately insured, or don’t have the right kind of coverage. Moving companies that do long distance interstate or intra-state moves must also have appropriate insurance policies in place to cover the items moved, to safeguard the client.

Next, it’s important to remember that just because your belongings aren’t packed and ready to go the day you move doesn’t mean the process won’t be complicated. There are a number of steps involved before a move can be made. This includes securing proper authorization and documentation, getting inspections of the premises, making sure all boxes and items are packed and shipped properly, and preparing your home for movement. You want to make sure any company you choose is bonded, has adequate insurance, and is a good consumer choice. You can also check the Better Business Bureau to see if the company has had any complaints against it.
