Cross Country Moving, Interstate Moving, Nationwide Moving... just what type of moving service is it?
Moving is one thing that folks handle differently. Some people find themselves in a major stress cycle with each and every move while other folks seem to take to the process like fish to water. No matter how much of a moving pro you happen to be, there is a large difference betwixt moving across town in Oklahoma City and moving long-distance. A local move is something you could be able to handle by yourself with several car trips and a few helpful friends. But, moving from one side of the country to the other or even just several states over will require packing all of your stuff into a single trip, including all the bulky furniture, which means you will need a moving truck, a bunch of packing material, and most likely a team of expert movers to be certain you don't smash yourself with your own dresser or scratch up the walls on your way through.
But what moving service should you choose? If you are scrolling through a series of options, especially for interstate moving, it may seem like there are lots different styles of moving services for long distances and every one has a different names. In fact, every moving company in the business in your city, your destination locale, and all the places in between has a unique name for their out-of town moves. You may see Nationwide Moving offered, Cross-Country Moving, or Interstate Moving catalogued right next to quirky strange names like The Long Move or Anywhere-to-Anywhere. What if you are moving quite a distance but not physically crossing state lines? Do you need a different 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 an anxiety attack.
It Turns Out They're All the Same Thing
But have no fear. What it boils down to is these are all unique names for the exact same service. Sure, the particulars of what every company offers will vary from moving company to moving company, but what they are providing is not a huge variety of location-specific services. A long-distance move by any other name is still a long-distance move. The important part is the contrast between this and 'local' moves which have a different type of pricing and planning policies.
The Many Monikers of Long-Distance Moving
Coming to grips that you are comparing the same types of service every time is a welcome breather for anxiety-filled professionals and families about to embark on a huge move, but all these different names do make it hard to search for and contrast the services. To lend a hand, here's a little list of all the different ways that we have noticed long-distance moves named. There are probably some we've missed because some moving companies get creative, but this will provide a baseline.
- Long-Distance Moving
- Interstate Moving
- Out of State Moving
- State-to-State Moving
- Cross country Moving
- Nationwide Moving
- Relocation Services
- Coast to Coast Moving
Don't let all these distinct names confuse you. While the search engine results could fluctuate, these are all alike services supplied by different moving companies using slightly varying terminology. Each one of these services simply means that you will be moving more than a few blocks or cities from your current location in Oklahoma City.
