Cross Country Moving, Interstate Moving, Nationwide Moving... just what type of moving service is it?
Moving is something that everyone handles differently. Some people go through a major worry cycle with every move while other folks seem to take everything in stride. Regardless of how much of a moving pro you are, there is a large difference betwixt moving across town in Colorado Springs and moving interstate. A local move is something you might be capable of handling as a do-it-yourself project with numerous car trips and a few helpful friends. However, moving across the country or even just a few states over will necessitate packing all of your stuff into a single trip, including all the heavy furniture, which means you will need a moving van, some serious packing material, and most likely a team of expert movers to make sure you do not crush yourself with your own sofa or scrape up the floors on your way through.
But what moving service should you pick? If you're scrolling through a list of options, especially for interstate moving, it could appear like there are lots different styles of moving services for long distances and every one goes by different names. Literally, every moving company in the business in your current town, your destination town, and all the places in between has a special name for their longer distance moves. You may see Nationwide Moving offered, Cross-Country Moving, or Interstate Moving indexed right beside quirky strange names like The Long Move or Anywhere-to-Anywhere. What if you are moving far but not actually crossing state lines? Do you need a special service for moving coast to coast or to a rural area? Finding out the dissimilarities between these services, or even if different names mean anything at all, can cause some stress.

But don’t freat. The truth of the matter is that these are all attention grabbing names for the exact same service. Of course, the specifics of what every company offers will differ from moving company to moving company, but what they are supplying is not a wide variety of location-specific services.

The imperative part is the differentiation between this and 'local' moves which have a different set of pricing and planning policies.
