A Local Move is usually a move that takes place within a 100 – 200 mile radius, and is often within your county. Local Moves do not involve leaving your current State.
The cost for Local Moves is based upon the number of workers, the time it takes to move your belongings and the drive time between your old and new residence.
Other Factors that may Determine the Cost
• Packing is a major issue. The more you pack yourself – the more you save on labor, time and packing materials.
• Save the Mover time at the destination – be prepared to tell the Movers what is going where.
• Mark all of your boxes with identification: children’s names, “office”, “living room”, “kitchen”, etc.
• The more correct the information you provide your Mover when he is quoting you, the better your chances are to have a smooth and “on budget” move.

Moving and packing tips for electronics: Purchase sticky labels that are big enough to write on but small enough to ensure the equipment connection ports are secure. Colored, round sticky circles are recommended but any will do.
Before you unplug any wires or cords, mark the wire or cable and the port you’re removing it from with the colored labels. Color code the ports and cables so you can reconnect them later. If you run out of colors to use, you can also write a number on the label that will match the port and the wire as a back up plan.
For added help and detail, write down step-by-step instructions on how you’re dismantling the equipment so you can refer to it later when assembling it, which we all know can be a huge pain to remember off hand! Keep this instruction guide in the box with the electronics.
Then, after you have the wires or cables unplugged, use twist ties to carefully secure the cables so they don’t tangle. Place the cords and wires into a sealable bag, made of plastic, and tape it to the piece of equipment.
