How Local Moving Costs are Calculated
Schedule an in-home moving consultation to find out your exact moving costs — guaranteed. Pricing for local moving is determined by the weight of the goods to be moved. Our in-home estimator will carefully calculate these variables for you, taking into consideration your desired service level.
We can help you determine whether a part self-service move or full service move is right for you. Once our estimating professional gives you the free moving quote, your price is guaranteed.
How To Choose A Local Moving Company
Local moves require a high level of care and professionalism, so choose your mover carefully. Qualification standards for movers differ dramatically. Look beyond movers’ advertising claims and check their Certificates and Endorsements. We encourage you to visit our offices and warehouses before making your decision. We’ve been in the industry for over 40 years and have become Texa’s largest moving and storage services provider.

Local Moving Company FAQs
This term usually refers to a move between two locations that are less than 50 miles apart. Compare that to an intrastate move that would take place within the same state with a distance of 50 miles or more, or an interstate move that takes place across at least one state line.
Each situation is different. Factors that can play a role in the pricing include:
- How many items need to be transported
- How many heavy items you’ll move
- How many fragile items you’ll move
- The mileage involved in your move
- Which moving services you choose to use, such as packing/unpacking
To reduce your costs, consider what you really need to have transported. If, for example, you're thinking about giving a friend or relative that heavy dining room table or a delicate heirloom, it can make sense to do so before the move, not after. If you’re not sure what you want to do with certain items, consider putting them in storage. We offer competitive storage rates in state-of-the-art facilities.

Start as early as possible, even if your move is still months away. This will give you the maximum amount of time to prepare and will reduce or eliminate the stress associated with rushing to meet deadlines.
Whittle your belongings down to those you want to keep. Throw out expired spices, worn-out towels, and shoes with broken heels. If you’re going to have a rummage sale, choose what you’re going to sell; price everything appropriately; and strategically pick the date and time for your sale. Every item you sell benefits you in two ways: it reduces what you’ll have to move and it puts money in your pocket. Give away or donate items in decent shape that you just don’t want or need anymore, including duplicate items.
Book your date with your local moving company of choice (more about selecting the right one in this FAQ: How do I choose my local movers?). Once you know you’ve chosen the right local movers and that you have your date booked, this can remove unnecessary stress.
Decide what services you’d like from your household movers. Are you looking for local packers and movers or do you plan to pack and unpack your own belongings? At Daryl Flood, we offer partial and full service moves to fit your specific needs and budget.
If you’ll do your own packing and unpacking, make sure you have enough boxes and supplies, such as bubble wrap, tape, markers, and more. Create a labeling system, writing down the room where a box should go on the box itself or by assigning each room a certain color of stickers. If you label all sides of your boxes, you’ll know where each one should go, no matter how you set the box down. Consider marking boxes containing important items with an “I” for “important” or “H” for high priority.
Think beyond your actual move, too, handling all change of address forms, transferring utilities, and so forth.
You’ll want to hire a local moving company with experience and a quality reputation. Unfortunately, fly-by-night rogue movers do exist.
Ask friends, family members, and coworkers who have used household movers in your area. Make a list of recommendations and then check the websites and reviews of those local packers and movers. Then, ask yourself:
- Do they have a decent online presence?
- Do they offer the services you need?
- Have they won any local awards or accreditations?
By now, you should have a good list of local movers to choose from and can collect quotes.
When you contact household movers, make sure they are willing to explain their services and answer your questions easily. Are they transparent about their pricing? Be sure to get a written estimate. If a local moving company hesitates to put information in writing or refuses to offer you any kind of a binding quote, that’s a big red flag.
With your local moving company of choice, verify that the business is licensed with the Texas Department of Motor Vehicles. Household movers in Texas are required to be licensed (our number is 006779291C) and, if someone hires a mover that isn’t licensed, they risk the loss of their belongings.
Movers typically offer standard valuation coverage for your household goods, so get clarity about what’s covered. Note that your local movers can’t legally provide insurance for your belongings. If you want true insurance (going beyond standard valuation coverage), consult your insurance agent.
Once you’ve picked your local packers and movers, reserve your date as soon as you can. To get an estimate from our local moving company, you can fill out the form on this page; contact us online; or call us at (844) 350-4284.
In general, make sure you’ve scheduled your movers four to six weeks before relocation day. As soon as you know your date, though, get it confirmed with the local moving company of your choice, even if it’s earlier.
This is even more important from May through September, which is peak moving season. There may be busy times outside this timeframe that are busy for your specific location, so also keep that in mind.
As moving day nears, create an “open first” box that you can keep in your car. When you arrive, you’ll be able to take care of immediate needs. These can include anything you need for work, extremely sentimental or valuable items, such as wedding rings, important documents, and personal hygiene items. If you have medications that you take, don’t forget to include these, as well as getting any refills you may need ahead of time so you aren’t held up by changing pharmacies.
Other items you might want within easy reach include basic cleaning supplies and tools, batteries and phone chargers, toilet paper, and paper towels.
If you’re moving with children, keep a few favorites—whether toys, books, snacks, and/or electronic devices—that they can have as soon as they get to their new home. If you have pets, have their foods, snacks, and toys in easy reach.
