Moving Tip of The Week – Know the Differences Between a Long Distance and Local Move
If you plan on moving in the near future, it is important to know the key differences between a Long Distance and Local move. Each type of move has different rules and regulations, as well as cost considerations.
Here are the basic key differences:
- Long Distance: A Long Distance move is a move that starts in one state and ends in another state. They are regulated by the FMCSA (Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration) and can often run at the higher end of the cost spectrum.
- Local: A Local move is a move that starts in one state and ends in the same state. They are regulated by the local state moving authority where the move takes place and have the potential to run at the lower end of the cost spectrum.
