What Counts as a Local Move?
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.

Local Moving FAQ
The cost of a local move typically ranges from $300 to $1,500 for smaller apartments and from $600 to $2,000 or more for larger homes. However, these are general estimates and actual costs can vary based on factors like the amount of belongings, distance of the move, labor costs, and any additional services required.
A local move is any move that’s less than 100 miles, and within the same state. On the other hand, a long distance move is any move that exceeds 100 miles, or crosses state lines. Local moves are charged per hour, per mover. Long distance moves are charged by distance traveled and volume of belongings. Plus, long distance movers need to be federally licensed.
Every moving company has their own no-go list, but the basics are usually the same across the board. Movers won’t transport anything pressurized or flammable, and they won’t take anything perishable or alive (like plants, pets, or rambunctious children). High-value or sentimental items are also best kept either on your person or close at hand, so you should move those yourself.
If you want to save every penny, renting a truck and DIYing your whole move is the way to go. Unfortunately, with the price of gas these days, (not to mention the days you’ll have to take off work for packing and hauling) you may not save that much in the end. Make sure you really take the time to math out your final savings.
It’s a good idea to book your local movers at least two months in advance. This gives you extra flexibility, and if gives your movers plenty of time to plan out the big day. While you’re looking at your calendar, cross off June, July, and August. Those are the busiest, most expensive months for moving. Shoot for something mid-month, mid-week, and far away from holidays or vacations.
