If you are moving from one state to another state you are making a Long Distance move, also known as an Interstate move. Even if you start and end in one state, but pass through another state on the way, it is still considered a Long Distance move (i.e. Moving in New York but passing through New Jersey). The same applies to moves that start and end in one state but cross international borders (i.e. Moving in Texas but passing through Mexico). So if you are making a Long Distance move, you need to make sure you choose a Long Distance mover.
Long Distance movers will have different licensing requirements than Local movers, and will most likely charge you more because the distance is usually greater. With regard to licenses, Long Distance moves are regulated by the FMCSA (Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration) who require Interstate movers to obtain a license issued by them. If the Long Distance mover does not have an FMCSA license, do not hire them. While every Long Distance mover on our site has been pre-screened to make sure they have the necessary licenses, it's always a good idea to confirm these details yourself before hiring a mover.
Because a lot goes into a long distance move, don't be tempted to do it yourself. Renting a truck and performing a self move might sound cheaper, but the work, effort, and stress will be much greater without a mover.
