Whether you’re moving across the street or across the country, Acme and Wheaton have you covered. Based in Morehead City, North Carolina, Acme has developed a specialized approach to moving customers into and out of their North Carolina homes and into their new lives.

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 – Moves that are 35 miles or less are considered local moves. The charges for this kind of move are figured on an hourly rate based on the number of men required to handle the job efficiently. Hourly moves allow the customer flexibility to have the crew move all or a portion of their goods.

INTRAstate moves – In North Carolina, moves of more than 35 miles and remains in the state are intrastate moves. The charges for this kind of move are calculated by the shipment weight and the distance moved. Acme Movers & Storage gladly offers free in-home estimates to ensure customers get reliable information and accurate pricing.

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

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 Acme Movers & Storage Co. in Morehead City, 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.

Wheaton’s moving services begin with your local agent well before the truck arrives and lasts long after your final box is unpacked. The cornerstone of your moving experience, Acme Movers & Storage Co. coordinates your move in conjunction with Wheaton corporate headquarters and is a resource available to you throughout the entire process.

Moving can seem a little daunting at first glimpse, but Wheaton’s years of experience and knowledge of the moving industry will make for a smooth transition.
