Local Moving Services

Some people have asked, “Why would I use a professional moving company for a local move?”. Well, that’s simple. Although renting a moving truck may seem cheaper than hiring local movers, once all the extra costs (gas, mileage, packing materials, equipment rentals, truck insurance, time off work, etc.) are considered, it might not be the cheapest option after all. Or, if it is, it’s probably not by much. Once all the factors are considered – your time, effort, and expenses – it is nearly always worth the little bit extra that a moving company may cost you.

In addition, when you move yourself, with the help of friends and family, you are often trusting the well-being of your household goods and valuables to the hands of inexperienced packers and movers. You will not have any valuation protection on items that may be damaged during your local move. If a flower pot falls off a chair in your moving van and onto your flat screen TV you are going to be out a large sum of money. When you trust your move to the professionals at Bekins Northwest you are not only getting the peace of mind that you are getting professional, well trained, packers and movers but you also get free valuation protection for your goods in the rare case that some items are damaged.

When moving your family, even on a local move, you want movers that know what they are doing.

What You Need to Know About Local Moves

A local move, also known as an intrastate move, is a move that is not further than 50 miles from origin to destination and does not cross state lines. Local moves are charged at an hourly rate. Bekins Northwest is able to keep your costs down on local moves by providing several branch locations near your origin and destination points to keep down travel time. We also constantly train our movers and supply them with top of the line equipment to ensure that they are always operating at a very high productivity rate. It is important to note that if your mover crosses state lines at any point during transport than your move is now considered a Long Distance move and is governed by a different set of rules and is charged by weight and distance instead of hourly. We are licensed and insured to be able to fully provide Local, Long Distance, and International Moving services.
