A question about sperm banking and long-distance relocation

I will be banking sperm in the next few months. Right now I live in Texas. When it comes time to use that sperm, Partner and I will be... well, wherever the job market takes us — probably hundreds or even thousands of miles away.

It will be impractical for us to travel back to Texas once a month until Partner is pregnant. Her family has a history of fertility trouble, and it may well take us many tries.
If I'm going to bank sperm, it has to be now — it can't wait until we know where we're moving.
So: what can/should we do? Can sperm be transferred between banks? Can banked sperm be shipped directly to the, uh, consumer?
And especially: Have you ever done anything like this and made it work? What can we do now to prevent headaches later?
