A Local moving, in most cases, is a move done from city to city within a state or in a 50-mile radius from your current location. The industry standard is to charge by the hour. The rate depends on the number of movers and the number of trucks that are required for the job. UMS estimator will make the proper determination. If packing is needed, that too is charged by the hour. Materials are charged based on actual usage. Standard moving insurance is included in the price. Additional insurance can be secured on the day of the move. Usually local moves are completed within 1- 2 days depending on the circumstances.
Planning is always the most important part of every move. So planning has become a specialty for UMS. From supplying the correct packing materials and labor through loading, safe driving and unpacking, we make sure every possibility is anticipated and every need is met.
It is very important that you highlight to your sales representative if you have any special requirements. These would include Pianos, Fine Art or Statues. If there is something that you are unsure about, please contact Unified moving services & our professional staff and us will advise you.
