Local moving FAQs
Preparation is the most critical aspect of making your local move go smoothly. Starting as early as possible is the best way to set yourself up for success, even if it’s months in advance.
Try to pinpoint as many details about your move as you can, going through each room in your home and having a plan for every item you'll be bringing to your new location. This is a great time to discard or donate items that you no longer need.
It is vital to have adequate packing supplies for all of your items. Aside from boxes, it may be helpful also to have bubble wrap, moving blankets, and other packing supplies to protect your belongings.
Preparing your new home by making sure the utilities are connected, internet services are set up, and having your change of address in order will all help contribute to a painless local moving experience.
Some of your belongings and personal items should be kept out of moving boxes and easily accessible on moving day. Anything that you may need to get to quickly should be kept on you rather than packing it away. Consider making an "open first" box to house everything you will need on moving day.
Items you use daily should be kept within easy reach throughout your move. Essential documents such as insurance paperwork can be kept in a dedicated folder separate from your packed belongings.
If you take any medications, it can be helpful to keep the bottles in a Ziploc bag that you can easily get to when it is time to take the medication. Additionally, other personal items like a toothbrush, toothpaste, shampoo, conditioner, and moisturizer can be kept in a toiletry bag, so when you need these items, they are readily available.
If you are moving with children, it is helpful to have some of their favorite toys or electronic devices within reach so they can feel more settled in their new home.
Some other items that you may want to have conveniently available are:
- Cleaning supplies
- Basic tools
- A corkscrew
- Extra chargers
- Clothes hangers
- Toilet paper
There's no standard amount that you should budget for a local move since every situation is different. The variables that may affect your budget are the total number of items, the number of heavy items, the number of fragile or delicate items, how far your move is, and how many specific moving services you choose.
You should discuss your budget with your dedicated move coordinator at MoveDay. Your coordinator will be able to help develop the plan, and associated costs, for your move.

Packing can be one of the most daunting tasks when preparing for a movie, and like most challenging tasks, the sooner you can start, the better off you'll be.
Read our Local Moving Checklist to help you develop a timeline for when to start packing your home. And, if you choose to hire local movers instead of managing the move yourself, be sure to get on the movers' schedule as soon as you can to ensure they will be available on the day that works for you.
Most moving typically happens between March and September, which coincides with school breaks. If it’s possible for you to schedule your move outside of this time, you may have a better chance of landing local movers on the day you prefer. However, moving during peak months isn’t that much different than moving in the off-months.
As soon as you know you will be moving and have a date in mind. It is a good idea to schedule local movers. As mentioned above, moving companies tend to be busier between March and September, so if you need to move during that time, the earlier you can reserve your moving day, the better off you'll be.
Not all local moving companies offer storage services, but MoveDay and our trusted partners do.
If you need a secure environment for your items, or if you need to store more sensitive items for short- or long-term, MoveDay has the perfect solution for your needs. Our team is also able to assist if you need declutter service, where we take away some items for staging your home before it is sold, and then return to complete your move once you’re moving out.
Technically, yes, you can handle a local move yourself.
However, handling a move yourself means making sure that all of the tasks needed for a successful move are accounted for, which can be risky without professional help.
MoveDay is a local moving company with the experience and know-how to make sure you and your family have a successful move.
The time you spend finding a local moving company you can trust will be worth it. If you are entrusting a company with all of your belongings, you want to be sure that your items and your home will be handled with care and respect.
You can start by asking friends, family, or colleagues for personal recommendations, or you can check local moving company reviews online.
Moving fraud is a growing issue, so look for well-established businesses that have valid physical addresses and not just a post office box.
