What is a Long Distance Move?

Long distance moves are different than local moves (moving a short distance within a metro area within the same state) and intrastate moves (longer distance moves that occur within the same state) because they involve moving goods across state lines. Additionally, a cross country move can also be referred to as a long distance move, an interstate move or a state-to-state move.

No matter the distance, all moves that involve crossing a state line require special, federal authority. U.S. federal laws and regulations, including insurance requirements, are designed to protect consumers before, during and after their moves.

It is important that you are able to distinguish reputable long distance moving companies from fraudulent or so-called “rogue” movers, who are often not really movers and have been known for holding personal property hostage for additional fees and other scams.

Cost of a Long Distance Mover

With Mayflower, our long distance moving quotes take many factors into account, so you receive a fair quote that is specific to your unique move. Among other things, we assess the weight or volume of your belongings, the distance of your move and what services you request to determine your expected moving cost.

It is important to note that all long distance moves are different, which is why we must gather all of the preliminary information before providing you with a move cost.

Our Long Distance Moving FAQ's

Feel free to contact us if you have any additional questions.

Long distance moves are similar in nature to a standard move, but require an additional overnight fee. The crew will take care of their accommodations (lodging, food, fuel) with no additional fee for the customer. During overnight moves, your valuables remain safely locked in our truck.

Yes, with some restrictions. We do not reassemble pool tables, baby furniture, play sets, or trampolines. Pro tip: Our crews may ask you to sign a waiver when reassembling certain items – it’s meant to protect both you and our crews, but always feel free to call the office if you need more information.

Are you insured?
We definitely are! And, we carry a variety of insurance coverage to protect you. The name of our insurance company is available upon request.

How do I report damages?
Notify your move project coordinator immediately so they may document the damages. They will walk you through the process of documenting and filing a claim.

You may wish to thank your long distance movers by offering a gratuity if they do a wonderful job. Keep in mind that gratuity is not expected but is certainly appreciated.

On average, our crews typically receive tips that are around 10% to 15% of the move cost. Of course, if your movers were super duper awesome you can leave more if you like. Conversely, if you didn’t feel the movers lived up to your expectations, you don’t have to leave a tip at all.

We move homes and offices, help businesses manage employee relocations, and provide portable and long-term storage solutions.
