Every day, homeowners and renters in greater Los Angeles move to new locations within the region. The distance traveled during these moves is usually a maximum of 60 to 100 miles. However, this does not mean that local relocation is always easy. In fact, local moves often require significant logistical planning, and even a short trip can produce plenty of anxiety and unforeseen problems. Many people overlook the benefits of professional moving services when planning a regional relocation. However, use of these types of services can greatly reduce the stress and inconvenience of the process.

The experts at Walsh Moving provide complete support for local moves. In addition to packing, transporting and unpacking common items such as clothes, dishes and furniture, we pay special attention to antiques, pianos and other treasured, potentially fragile heirlooms. We can also assist you with in-home moves of bulky, oversized or heavy belongings. Homeowners and renters receive equal access to our decades of knowledge, planning and logistical expertise, and transparent hourly pricing.

Without exception, this type of undertaking comes with an increased need for planning and coordination. And the need for advanced preparation is even greater when your relocation requires moving across state lines. Anyone planning a long-distance move must select a moving company with great care.

During long-distance moves and local moves, many moving companies temporarily store their clients’ property in facilities designed for this purpose. There are several reasons for taking this step. First, reliance on temporary storage minimizes the need to handle your belongings. This leads to a reduced risk for any sort of damage. Storage also has the added advantage of limiting labor costs during the moving process.

Walsh Moving uses an industry-standard vault system to store your property in a secure environment. However, we also go beyond the industry norm in a couple of important ways. Our selection of vault sizes makes it easy to store special items and total loads of as much as 1,500 lbs.

Instead of paying for an offsite vault pickup, some people prefer to put their belongings in storage themselves. If this approach appeals to you, you can take advantage of our monitored, onsite self-storage option. To arrange for this service, you’ll need to contact us in advance and schedule a time for your visit. Once you arrive, one of our staff members will escort you to the packing location, where you can use as many vaults as you need. All self-storage clients pay a storage charge and a smaller one-time charge for access to the facility. These fees cover the cost of packing blankets and one hour of professional packing help.


At Walsh, we accommodate the needs of clients who want to do their own packing before the moving team arrives at their home or business. Our inventory of packing supplies includes everything from general-use boxes in multiple sizes to mattress bags and specialized boxes for items such as dresses and suits, lamps and dishes. It also includes essential packing accessories such as ink-free paper, paper pads and tape. If you like, we can provide you with step-by-step instructions on the best way to keep your belongings free from damage during transit. As an alternative, our staff of experienced packers can take care of everything for you. The pricing for this service is based on a flat, hourly fee.

I’m on a tight budget so it was important to get an estimate that was as accurate as possible with quality movers. Thomas at Walsh Moving took a detailed account of what I needed moved and explained their pricing and estimate well. They were extremely efficient and got the job done right. Competitively priced, detailed & accurate estimate, professional, and efficient. The final cost was $165 less than the estimate!
