What Distance Is Considered a Local Move?

Generally, the distance for a local move may be about 50 miles. It also would not cross state lines. A local move in Southern California will usually take only one day, depending on the exact distance and the size of the move. Larger local moves will typically take longer than smaller moves. If you want to find out if your move is considered local or long-distance, we welcome you to reach out to our team. Our local Southern California movers can talk to you about cost, timing, and more!

Local Moves in Southern California

With the weather, the food, the culture, and the diversity, it’s no wonder that many people choose to stay in Southern California. However, sometimes situations come up that make a local move the right choice for an individual, a business, or a family. A local move may make sense if you are purchasing your first home, if you are getting a larger house for your growing family, if you have equity in your home and want to purchase a bigger place, or if you need to downsize because your grown children have left the nest. Moving down the street or a few miles away may give you the opportunity to live in a home that is better suited for your needs and financial situation.

Moving, even locally, can be a lot of work. Most people dread moving, but there is a lot of excitement and opportunity to consider as well. Finding the right local moving company can help relieve the stress you’re dealing with because you’ll know that the heavy lifting will be under control. Our local moving services are also fully customizable, meaning you can pick and choose what we do for you. You may want our professional packers to handle all the packing and unpacking for you, may want help with a few specific items, or may want to handle the packing yourself and trust the loading and transportation to our movers. You may even need storage solutions. Whatever your needs, you can rest assured that our local movers have the know-how and equipment to help.
