The moving industry defines long-distance moves as moves that cross state lines. Long-distance moves are often also referred to as cross-country moves or interstate moves.
The cost of hiring a long-distance moving company varies greatly. It depends on many factors, including the distance of the move, the size of your home and office, the number of items you need to move, and the weight of your belongings. This is why obtaining moving quotes that are transparent, detailed, and free from hidden charges is crucial.
Our research shows long-distance moves from Florida generally cost between $2,200 and $5,700, with a general national average of $3,950. Of course, the cost of your long-distance move could be below or above that range based on the distance of your move and the services you require, among other factors. This is why it is an excellent practice to get three different moving quotes before deciding which moving company to partner with

Reliable moving companies ensure the utmost protection for your belongings by using padded moving vans and trucks, moving blankets and dollies, and professional loading and unloading techniques. Most full-service moving companies offer packing and unpacking services at an additional cost.
Suppose you choose to include packing and unpacking services in your move. In that case, the moving company’s professional packers will come to your home or office a few days before the move at an agreed-upon time to carefully pack up as many items as you’d like. Most moving companies offer both partial and full-service packing and unpacking services.
At Davi & Valenti Movers, we take extra precautions to protect your belongings. We equip our moving vans and trucks with padding, and we use moving blankets and dollies for safe loading and unloading.

In the moving industry, “insurance” is called “valuation.” Moving companies usually offer at least two types of valuation: limited liability coverage and full value protection. Limited liability coverage is the minimum level of liability a mover must assume, which comes included with every move at no additional cost. Federal law requires all moving companies to offer compensation of at least 60 cents per pound per item lost or damaged.
However, this basic coverage only satisfies some customers, so most moving companies offer full value protection at an additional cost. If a customer purchases full-value protection, the moving company will have to repair, replace, or refund each item lost or damaged at a fair market value.
At Davi & Valenti Movers, we offer both types of valuation to protect your belongings. Besides providing federally mandated limited liability coverage, we also offer full value protection at an additional cost for greater peace of mind during your move. In addition, we offer extraordinary value coverage for each item that is valued at $100 or more per pound. This way, you will have the amount of coverage of your choosing.
The timing of a long-distance move depends on factors like the size of your home or office, the distance, and the number of items to be moved. Depending on these factors, long-distance moves can last anywhere from one to three days up to two to three weeks.
Moves that require 200 to 1700 miles of travel take about 3-14 days on average. Moves under 200 miles usually only take one to three days, while moves that require travel above 1700 miles typically take anywhere from one to three weeks.
At Davi & Valenti Movers, we work closely with our clients to create a timeline that fits their schedules and needs. Before you decide to partner with us for your long-distance move, we will get you a timeline and delivery so you know exactly what to expect. Our extensive experience enables us to provide an accurate estimate and ensure timely delivery.
Reputable moving companies employ trained and experienced crews who handle all types of moves, including fragile and valuable items. Some moving companies hire seasonal movers during the busy season in the summer months. Reliable moving companies ensure all of their movers, including seasonal staff, are background checked and well-trained. However, it is always good to double-check before your move.
At Davi & Valenti Movers, our professional moving team undergoes meticulous training to handle valuable and delicate items like pianos and vehicles. Our moving crew consists of well-trained and experienced professionals, all permanent employees. Some moving team members have been with us for a few decades.

If an issue arises, the general dispute resolution process involves filling out a valuation claim form and contacting the moving company. A final walk-through and audit of your items and home are recommended before signing off on the Bill of Lading at the end of your move.
At Davi & Valenti Movers, we prioritize client satisfaction and have a straightforward process for dealing with any issues that might arise.

In terms of rules, federal law requires companies to have a USDOT license to execute long-distance moves. Most long-distance moving companies, such as Wheaton World Wide, are interstate agents of a nationwide van line. As an interstate van line agent, a moving company can partner with over 400+ agents nationwide to make your move efficient and seamless. In addition, if a moving company partners with a van line, they can operate under their van line’s USDOT license.
As far as restrictions go, moving companies cannot move hazardous items such as nail polish, nail polish remover, paint thinner, engine fluid, and household cleaning products. In addition, moving companies cannot complete long-distance moves without obtaining BIPD and Cargo Insurance Policies. Moving companies also have to register with the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Association in order to move across state lines. Since this registration has an expiration date, it needs to be renewed every two years.
When you are looking for a long-distance moving company, ensure they have the correct licenses and insurance. When a company moves long distances and crosses state lines, it must follow the regulations set by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA). If you are struggling to find a reliable moving company, use the FMCSA’s helpful moving checklist.
