WHEN IT’S TIME TO MOVE
Moving is well-known as one of life’s most stressful necessities, especially in Los Angeles. Even with short-distance moves such as moving from Torrance to Long Beach or one side of the city to another, the logistics involved can be overwhelming and time-consuming. In addition to the move, you have to package and label all your belongings and bubble wrap all your fragile items to ensure their safety across town.
However, in most cases, hiring qualified movers is a better choice because of the experience and knowledge that come with a reliable and trustworthy local moving company.
RISKS INVOLVED WHEN MOVING ON YOUR OWN
Some renters and homeowners choose to undertake local moves on their own because of the short amount of distance involved. But, anyone who moves without the help of trained professionals takes safety risks.
One of these risks is the possibility of damaging valuable items when relocating on your own. Professional movers have the training and experience necessary to avoid any mishaps. Additionally, untrained movers can easily make costly mistakes that lead to the need for property repair or replacement. Lastly, attempting to move large pieces of furniture such as couches, sofas, mattresses, or dining table can cause physical harm to your body if you don’t have the necessary safety equipment to lift and handle such heavy loads.

WHAT QUALIFIES AS A LOCAL MOVE?
Local moves are short moves that take place within an area or region, such as moving across Los Angeles County and typically equal to or less than 50 miles.
INTRASTATE VS. INTERSTATE LOCAL MOVES
In most cases, local moves are intrastate and do not involve the crossing of state lines. However, for someone who lives near a state border, a relocation of just a few miles can fall into the interstate category. In California, state laws regulate the conditions for an intrastate move. Separate federal guidelines govern the requirements for all interstate moves.

Transparent pricing is critical to the moving process. With this in mind, Walsh Moving features a flat, all-inclusive hourly rate for all local moves.
