Long distance of interstate MOVING is the transportation of household goods from an origin in one state to a destination in another state. For example, when a shipper moves from Kearny, NJ to Phoenix, AZ. Interstate moving companies transporting household goods are regulated and licensed by the U.S. Department of Transportation Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA). More information about the regulatory and licensing requirements may be found at www.fmcsa.dot.gov and you can also check this important website.

Local or interstate moving is the transportation of household goods from one place to another within the same state. (For example, when a shipper moves from Kearny, NJ to Millburn, NJ). Moving companies performing intrastate transportation services must be licensed with that individual state’s regulatory body if any. This type of move is usually based on hourly rates and in New Jersey is regulated by the New Jersey Division of Consumer Affairs.
The State of New Jersey requires that all moving companies must carry an active NJ Public Movers and Warehousemen License to perform any move within the Garden State. Check with the NJDCA if a Moving Company is authorized to perform your move before you hire them by calling (973) 504-6442. Also, check this article for an Important Notice to Consumer Using Public Movers and Warehousemen.
