Have A Local Moving Plan

Many people who move locally often believe that a local move is quick and easy. After all, you already know the area. What else would you know?

It turns out you should probably know a lot more. Assuming that a local move is easy causes many residential local moves to underestimate their costs during their move.

Our movers have seen it all and are ready for anything. This is why we have come up with a guide to local residential moving.

Research Your Moving Options

When it comes to moving and saving money, you should know your options. Not all movers are equal, after all. This might sound like a sign to do everything on your own, but that could cause more problems than solutions. Our movers have years of experience in effectively moving all sorts of packages, big and small, so you do not have to worry about anyone having butterfingers. 

Do all the research you can on complete moving services, moving truck rentals, labor services, the cost of packing supplies, and even storage services. Once you have researched these moving options, you'll have a better understanding and idea of what you should expect to spend. Remember not to underestimate time! Local moves do not necessarily mean a quick move. If you decide to rent a moving van, be wary of extra costs for extra time. 

Collect Your Moving Supplies

If you have decided not to go with a complete moving service or a packing service, you need to spend time gathering your packing supplies. Here is a list of must-needed packing supplies and moving materials for a 'damage-free moving experience. 

Bubble Wrap

We recommend large bubbles for oversized items and tiny bubbles for small pieces, like porcelain figurines. These will keep your valuables safe and snug wherever they are.


These might seem a bit obvious, but it is crucial to get the right boxes. Besides, not just any container will do the trick. Having various large, small, and medium boxes will help you pack your items for a damage-free move. You can either buy boxes from moving companies, big box stores or ask around for shipping boxes. 

Packing Tape

It is vital to get the correct tape when taping up your boxes. You should pick a high-quality tape made for packing since this will keep your box sturdy. Don't forget to get a large amount too. It would help if you taped both the bottom and the top of your parcels. 

Packing Paper

People used to store up their daily newspaper for a move, but now that newspaper isn't as popular we can buy packing paper. This paper is excellent for wrapping dishes, cups, and other breakable belongings.

Dolly and Lifting Straps

Dollies and lifting straps can either be bought or rented. These are life-savers when it comes to your moving day. It is better to be safe than sorry, and having a dolly to lift heavy appliances or furniture can save you a lot of pain in the future. Lifting straps will help you to move large, awkward furniture like couches and dressers.

Moving Blankets and Cargo Straps

Having moving blankets and cargo straps for your move is a must. Moving blankets will help to keep your furniture in excellent condition. Cargo straps will make sure all your heavy items are properly safe in your moving truck.

Moving Van, Truck, or Trailor

It is essential to assess what you'll be moving. If you are moving many oversized belongings, it is best to select a moving truck that can haul large items. If you are looking to move from a dorm or small apartment, a moving van or truck might be the best choice. Remember that some moving rental companies charge by the mile. So, if you think you'll save money on a small vehicle and make multiple trips, you might want to double-check on that policy.
