Long Distance Moving Company in San Antonio

Long distance MovingCross Country Moving, Interstate Moving, Nationwide Moving... just what sort of moving service is it?

Moving is one thing that folks handle differently. Some people find themselves in a major anxiety cycle with each and every move while others seem to take everything in stride. Regardless of how much of a moving natural you might be, there is a big difference betwixt moving across town in San Antonio and moving interstate.  A local move is something you may be capable of handling on your own with dozens of car trips and a few friends to assist. But, moving across the country or even just a few 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 van, a lot of packing material, and probably a team of expert movers to be certain you do not crush yourself with your own sofa or ding up the floors as you lumber down the hallway.

The Right Long Distance Moving Service in San Antonio

But what moving service should you decide on? If you're looking through a series of options, especially for interstate moving, it might appear like there are half a dozen different types of moving services for long distances and every one has a different names. In fact, every moving company in the business in your locale, your destination city, and all the places in between has a unique name for their longer distance moves. You may see Nationwide Moving offered, Cross-Country Moving, or Interstate Moving indexed right beside quirky unique names like The Long Move or Anywhere-to-Anywhere. What if you are moving quite a way but not really crossing state lines? Do you require a special service for moving coast to coast or to a remote area? Figuring out the variation between these services, or even if different names mean anything at all, can cause some stress.

It Turns Out They are All the Same Thing

But have no fear. In actuality, these are all different names for the exact same service. Of course, the particulars of what each company has to offer will differ from moving company to moving company, but what they are supplying is not a wide variety of location-specific services. A long-distance move by any other name is still a long-distance move. The crucial part is the contrast between this and 'local' moves which follow a different type of pricing and planning policies.

The Different Monikers of Long-Distance Moving

Understanding that you are comparing the same kinds of service every time is a welcome breather for worried professionals and families about to start a life-changing move, but all these unique names do make it difficult to look for and compare these services. To lend a hand, here's a quick list of all the distinct ways that we have seen long-distance moves named. There are probably some we've missed because some moving companies get creative, but this should 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 allow all these different names bewilder you. While the search engine results could fluctuate, these are all similar services provided by different moving companies using slightly distinct wording. Each one of these services simply means that you will be moving more than a few blocks or cities from your current location in San Antonio.

Best. Move. Ever!
Very pleased with the overall respect and care the men gave to my possessions. Even mailing me very quickly the only thing lost in transit. Would recommend to anyone needing a long distant move.
