Cross-Country Moving: What It Is

A cross-country move, also known as a long-distance move, is any move over 400 miles. While these moves can take place within one state, they are often part of an interstate moving plan.

It’s important to know that any move that crosses state lines requires special insurance policies, licensing, and equipment. As a top cross-country moving provider, we’re licensed and ready to help you with your long-distance move.
