Different Area Codes is changing the long distance moving game. Using decades of experience, technology, communication, and logistics, we’re making long distance moving as time and cost efficient as possible. All while saving you money and getting your belongings safely from point A to point B.
Are you ready to have the easiest move of your life?
01. The majority of losses happen on interstate highways. Careless drivers, tire blow outs, bad weather, poor road conditions, etc. are all uncontrollable things that could happen to your driver and your belongings.
We avoid this by using the transcontinental railroad and loading your belongings onto pods or shipping containers. This method of transportation is far safer and less expensive!
02. Most people only move long distance once, which gives moving companies very little incentive to do a great job. While most moving companies have an “onto the next” mentality, due to our unique business model, Different Area Codes creates an incentive for our movers to deliver high quality service.
We utilize a nationwide network of top-rated moving companies that have earned our business. Since this is a “get what you pay for” industry, we invest in partnering with the top talent and they work hard to retain our business. This ensures you’ll get movers who care!

A move is officially booked once the customer pays the deposit.
