A local move involves moving 100 miles or less within the same state. While many people take a DIY approach to local moves, hiring a reliable local moving company makes the move much easier and brings you peace of mind.

As a full-service local moving company, we are committed to providing comprehensive services at an affordable cost. Since 1989, ABS Moving provided efficient, local moving solutions. We offer several convenient options for local moves such as:

  • Full service moving — Leave everything to us. We can pack, protect, load, transport, unload, deliver, and place your belongings from one location to the next
  • Custom moving service — Want to be more involved or reduce your local moving costs? With our custom moving service, you can pack your own belongings and leave the boxes by your front door. We’ll come get them, load the moving truck, and unload them in your new home.

Our friendly staff will ask you a variety of questions to determine the correct number of professional movers to get the job done just the way you want it. The more information you provide us, the more efficient we can be in planning and executing your move.

Local Moving Charges

How much will a local move cost? Several factors are considered when calculating your local moving costs:

  • Labor – We charge an hourly rate for each local mover working on your moving job. We start the clock when the local movers arrive at your front door and stop it once they have completed their work at your new home.
  • Trucks – We charge an hourly fee for each moving truck used to move your belongings.
  • Packing Materials – We charge a reasonable fee for all boxes and packaging materials used during your move.
  • Valuation/Insurance – We charge a basic insurance fee to insure your belongings, in case any damage occurs.
