Long-distance moves require special authority to transport customers’ items from one state to another. This authority is granted by federal regulators. Companies that offer long-distance moving are also required by law to carry specific insurance policies. These regulations are designed to protect the customer and their belongings.
It is important that you are able to distinguish reputable long-distance moving companies from fraudulent or “rogue” movers who have been known for holding personal property hostage for additional fees and other scams.
