A local move is any move that is within a single state and under a certain number of miles. Though different moving companies may have varying standards for what they consider a local move, it can range from under 50 miles to under 100 miles. While a local move isn't as complicated or difficult as a long-distance move, there are still plenty of things you need to know about moving locally.
Preparing for a Local Move
Whether you are moving across the street or across the state, you can never begin preparing for your move too soon. The earlier you start getting ready for your move, the easier your move will be. To help you prepare, create a list of all the things you have to do as you transfer from one home to another. The list should include such things as:
- Choosing a moving company
- Changing your address
- Finding medical services in new town
- Terminating utility service in your old home
- Getting service set up in your new home
TIP: Keep this list handy so you can easily add items when you think of them and cross items off as they are taken care of.

If you don't hire a mover at least a few weeks before the move, you might not be able to reserve one for your moving day. You can find a mover by searching a local business directory, asking friends and relatives if they can recommend a company.
