A local move, in most cases, is a move done from city to city within a state or in a 50-mile radius from your current location. All local moves are regulated by your state’s Department of Transportation (DOT). The industry standard is to charge by the hour. The rate depends on the number of movers and the number of trucks that are required for the job. Your estimator will make the proper determination. Your standard moving insurance is included in the price. Usually local moves are completed within 1-3 days depending on the circumstances.
