Long Distance Moves

There are a number of key differences you should prepare for when moving cross country (long distance). Interstate moving can be more complicated than a local move due to requirements imposed by federal laws and regulations. Some of these laws and regulations are for the protection of interstate moving consumers. By contrast, not every state regulates local moving services and those that do offer varying levels of consumer protection.

Regulations for Interstate Moving Companies

Government regulations are created to protect the public by ensuring that the companies that own and operate these trucks on public roadways abide by certain rules. Other federal regulations are intended to protect moving consumers during their interstate move. With that in mind, we make sure that your mover holds interstate operating authority before letting them take possession of your property.


They have an assigned U.S. DOT. Number. The United States Department of Transportation grants a U.S. DOT. number to interstate carriers.

They’re registered with the FMCSA to transport household goods across state lines. The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) issues to interstate movers licenses identified by a “MC” number.

They carry adequate insurance. Interstate moving companies are required to meet certain financial responsibility requirements as a condition of obtaining and maintaining their licenses.
