One of the most common types of relocation is the local move which typically ranges from 5 to 50 miles and does not cross state lines. Local moves usually require less than one day, and most residential movers bill by the hour.
Depending on the moving company, a long-distance move may be defined differently. A long-distance move may be 400 miles or more according to some moving companies. While others may define a long-distance move as traveling more than 50 to 100 miles.
Some long-distance moves cross state lines and are referred to as an interstate or out-of-state move. In contrast, an intrastate move usually refers to a move covering a distance of 50 miles or less that starts and ends in the same state.
Local movers handle short-distance moves within the same city or metropolitan area. Also known as short-haul movers, these businesses offer the manpower and equipment needed to move your property in a few hours.
Reasons to hire a qualified, licensed mover for your local move include:
- Professional Expertise. Professional movers are specially trained to handle even the most challenging and delicate items with care and ease, protecting valuable items throughout the moving process.
- Less Work. Residential movers do the most strenuous work for you, allowing you to focus on other aspects of the relocation process.
- Specialized Equipment. From moving blankets to straps and dollies, professional movers have all the necessary equipment to move your belongings safely included in the price of the move.
- Faster Moving. Professional movers speed up the moving process, which is particularly helpful for those under a time constraint.
Insurance. Any damage caused by moving accidents is covered by moving insurance, with extra coverage available for more valuable items.
