Unlike cross country moves, local moving and packing services are charged by the hour. Charges are based on the number movers and time they spend to move your household goods.
Cost of a Local Move
Moving household appliances is a special project of a move. They are bulky and heavy, you can't pack them in a box, or simply unplug and carry onto a moving truck. Most likely you’ll need to hire a professional moving service to get the job done.
How to check if the company that you want to hire has an appropriate license? If you are moving locally then you need check DOT license since most states require moving companies to obtain DOT number.
If you are hiring professionals or helpers, it is a good idea to dispose of any unwanted furniture or household items before the move. Transportation cost of some items may exceed their value.
Sell Your Junk and Save On a Move
A good place to start saving on a move is by cutting back on moving boxes and packing supplies. There are many ways to get free used boxes and one of them is people that have recently moved.
