What is residential moving? Here’s how we look at it:

  • Moving from one home to another – One that you’re selling to one that you’re buying elsewhere
  • Moving from an apartment to a house
  • Moving from one apartment to another apartment

Moving companies put residential moves into some broader categories

Local moves – Generally, moves that are 50 miles or less, within a state, are considered local moves. But that depends on the state.

INTRAstate moves – Generally, intrastate moves are those greater than 50 miles but within the same state. Again, that rule depends entirely on state law.

INTERstate moves – Generally, interstate moves are those that cross state lines (e.g. Texas to California or Texas to Ohio).

Where does the van line come in?

Wheaton, and other van lines, has special authority to move household goods across state lines. Many local agents do not have the authority to perform interstate moves on their own, without the help of an interstate van line like Wheaton World Wide Moving. Wheaton extends that authority to local agents, like Towne Services of San Antonio in San Antonio, so they can move your belongings from a home in one state to a home in another. You can think of Wheaton as a network of moving agents all working to ensure your household goods gets from your origin to your destination.
