Helping You Find the Right Local Moving Company
As you prepare for your move within the same state, you want moving experts who have what it takes to make your move as smooth and stress-free as possible. Although Wheaton World Wide Moving does not perform local INTRAState moves, nearly all of Wheaton’s local agents do. To connect with a local Wheaton’s agent directly, simply use our agent locator tool to find an agent in your area.
Wheaton’s 370 agents operate as independent local agents in the states where they reside, and they are happy to facilitate your local or intrastate move. Your agent will even be familiar with local landmarks, traffic, weather and other elements to get you and your family started in a new hometown.
How Are Local Moves Different?
According to the American Moving & Storage Association (AMSA), interstate and intrastate moves have the following characteristics:
- Interstate moves, or moves between states, are priced based on the weight of your belongings, the distance the items are shipped, and the number of additional services, such as packing items.
- Intrastate moves, or local moves with a certain distance, are priced based on a per-hour cost for the personnel, as well as the number of vehicles the moving company provides.
At Wheaton World Wide Moving, we only work with the best personnel. When you come us to find an independent local agent, you can count on receiving the same great service as you would with our team of interstate and international movers.

* "The cost of an interstate move (between states) is usually based on the weight of your belongings and the distance they are shipped, plus the amount of packing and other services that you require; while the cost of an intrastate, or "local" move is generally based on a per-hour cost for the personnel and the number of vehicles that the mover provides (up to a certain distance, with longer distances based on the weight of your shipment and the mileage it is transported). The level of liability that the mover will cover in the event of loss or damage is generally less than would apply for an interstate move. Charges for interstate moves are based on the weight of your shipment and the distance that you are moving and are usually subject to higher level of liability by your mover in the event of a claim."
