Local Moving

At a glance:

  • Origin and Destination less than 100 miles apart
  • Billed hourly for a crew and a moving van
  • Four-hour minimum
  • Usually completed in a day

Using our custom relocation software, our specialists can help you determine the most cost effective crew size for your moving needs.

Drive time

Billable time for a local move begins when the crew arrives at your origin address and begins loading the first item onto the truck. Billable time ends when the last item is unloaded from the truck at your destination. In order to account for the time it takes the crew to travel from our facility to you and back, the driving time between your origin and destination addresses is doubled. For example, if you are moving to a new house fifteen minutes from your old house, you will be charged for 30 minutes of drive time.

Estimating hourly charges

Each furnished room of furniture contains, on average, 1000 pounds of household goods. Our crews typically load on average 500 pounds per man/hour. Unloading typically goes twice as fast. Please keep in mind, however, that these numbers are based on long-term averages and that other factors such as weather, time of day, bulky items, and access to your residence will affect how quickly the crew can actually work.

Our crews are professional and courteous and will work as quickly and as safely as possible to transport your goods in an efficient manner. Non-smoking crews are available upon request and we also offer a senior citizen discount.
