residential relocation 

 

Gallea Transfer and Storage, and its partner for interstate moving, Wheaton World Wide Moving, make up the perfect team to help you relocate your home, and your life.

Based in Owatonna, Minnesota, Gallea Transfer has developed a specialized approach to moving customers into and out of their Owatonna 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 – Generally, moves that are 40 miles or less, within a state, are considered local moves. But that depends on the state. Gallea Transfer and Storage will know your state’s rules and regulations related to moving. You can also check with your state’s Department of Transportation.

INTRAstate moves – Generally, intrastate moves are those greater than 40 miles but within the same state. Again, that rule depends entirely on state law. Gallea Transfer and Storage will know your state’s rules and regulations related to moving. You can also check with your state’s Department of Transportation.

INTERstate moves – Generally, interstate moves are those that cross state lines (e.g. Minnesota to California or Minnesota 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 Gallea Transfer and Storage in Owatonna, 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, your local Wheaton Agent 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.
