Let’s start with the basics and identify what an interstate mover is. There are some moving companies that only perform local moves and then there are companies that can cross state lines. Those that can cross state lines are known as interstate movers. Any interstate mover must comply with certain Department of Transportation, also known as “DOT”, regulations.

Let’s start with the basics and identify what an interstate mover is. There are some moving companies that only perform local moves and then there are companies that can cross state lines. Those that can cross state lines are known as interstate movers. Any interstate mover must comply with certain Department of Transportation, also known as “DOT”, regulations.

These regulations include company and vehicle registration. The DOT controls interstate commerce with the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, or FMCSA. The FMCSA protects communities from unsafe or scam moving companies.

Interstate movers, like VanLines Inc., are familiar with insurance requirements and transportation regulations when crossing state borders.

These factors can vary by state and choosing a company that has offices across the country means they are likely more familiar with the regulations.

For a long distance move, hiring a professional moving company is the only way to guarantee a seamless move.

The DIY, rent-a-moving-truck-and-chug-across-the-states method may seem like the more affordable option but it will end up costing you your peace of mind and then some.

Trusting movers to deliver all of your personal items to your new home does not need to be stressful, it just takes a little research. Fortunately for you, if you’re reading this you don’t need to look any further.

Many moving companies have specialties that make them well-suited for particular jobs, VanLines Inc. happens to cover all specialties. Whether it’s custom crating for artwork or wrapping a Baby Grand, trust those that have experience.

A professional moving company should explain that their teams have trained for these unique jobs. They should also have a clear pricing structure for add-ons like supplies or furniture assembly/disassembly should you require them.

While it is important for these additions to be customized for your needs, it shouldn’t sound like these things are being “made-up”.

Stress is inevitable but you’ll want to choose interstate movers that are easy to communicate with to help alleviate some of that stress.

From the first inquiry to move-in day, your movers should be helpful and efficient when you have questions or need to make a request. It doesn’t need to feel like family, but you should be treated like such.
