Interstate shipments come with their own unique circumstances so the Federal Highway Administration has provided Your Rights and Responsibilities When You Move Handbook to consumers preparing for their interstate moves. Wheaton has provided this handbook to describe how these moves work, moving terms, and what to expect on your move.
Long distance moves that cross state lines are considered interstate moves. Only movers with proper household goods authorities may conduct these moves. We find that all successful interstate moves start with a proper in-home survey. Our surveyor take inventory of the items you want moved and packed to give you the most accurate estimate possible. During this process all items are calculated based on their approximate size (cube) and assigned a weight based on their size. Estimates are then given based on the estimated weight and mileage based tariff. It may seem complicated but our move coordinators will explain it in detail when you call!
Our move coordinators and surveyors are on standby to help with any of your interstate moving needs. Let us walk you through how a proper interstate move should be and what you should expect throughout the process.
