What Counts as a Local Move?

Alternate Text

In the moving industry, there are local moves and long distance moves. But what’s the difference?

Local moves: These moves are under 100 miles, and within the same state. Local movers charge per mover, per hour. For reference, each room of your house will take about two movers to pack up.

Long distance moves: Long distance moves are over 100 miles or anything across state lines. Even if you live right on the border, you’ll need long distance movers to handle it. The cost of these moves comes down to distance traveled and weight of belongings..

When you’re looking for the right moving team, make sure you have the right type of mover on hand. Fortunately, iMoving makes it easy to find the right carrier for the job.
