When & How to book local movers? The Early the better. We made it simple
Often, a brief telephone conversation with a relocation specialist is the best way to plan a local move. Alternatively, for a more accurate quotation, you can take advantage of our professional moving software to submit full details of your move, such as inventory, internal layout, and parking details, packing for the smaller items, etc. It is simple, intuitive and 100% secure. There is no obligation to proceed from there. Trek Movers provide individual advice – even if you eventually decide to opt for a different company. We’re always happy to assist and will recommend the most suitable options for your particular circumstances.
As you will see, some days including weekends and month-ends are often oversubscribed. Therefore, we offer incentives & off-peak rates for local moving (typically Monday thru Thursday), so long as the midweek days don’t fall at month-ends. We offer the off-peak system to provide better options to our local moving customers, and also to ensure a reliable workflow across the whole week for our local moving crews – which, in turn, allows us to retain the most experienced, skilled local movers in the long term, ensuring top quality every time.
The more we know, the better we able to assist
Our recommendations for each local moving project are based on customers’ personal preferences, size of the move, heavy items involved, full packing services for the smaller items if required (kitchen, books, personal items, artwork, and other delicate items), stairs and/or long hallways at the pick-up and drop-off addresses, shared/reserved elevators, parking situation, etc. As an example, the typical format for a larger 2 bedroom size of the local move is at least 3 professional movers and 1 fully equipped moving truck. Although, additional mover(s) and/or an additional truck(s) can be added at your discretion to deal with any tricky access issues (stairs, long hallways, shared/reserved elevator, parking difficulties, moving time limitations set by HOA), heavy items, high volume/bigger moves, full packing for all smaller items.
Due to the unique variables of each move, local moving companies are not permitted to guess hard estimates without full details. Essentially, we will move you as safely and as efficiently as possible, and we are completely open regarding which pricing framework you prefer. One of the best ways to arrange larger local moving service, commercial or industrial moves accordingly is to have one of our estimators to stop by for a site visit, and/or to submit full inventory including internal layout details, and any additional details/instructions. This way our local moving company will be able to provide detailed quotations including all-inclusive “flat rate” for the full local moving service.
Covid-19 Ready. Local moving service need to be safe

Full packing services:
If time/budget is your main priority, then pre-packing small, loose miscellaneous items by yourself is recommended to minimize your moving costs for a local moving (time and packing materials). However, if convenience is your main priority, then the crew will be happy to provide a full packing service, and your truck will be stocked accordingly with all required packing materials. Reusable packing supplies are included free-of-charge unless you would like to purchase them (for example, for storage or long-distance move). If moving out of storage with us, we buy the reusables back again at the same price. All upholstered furniture will be covered with plastic wrap free of charge, to keep those items clean during transportation and/or storage (mattresses, couches, artwork, and other furniture/larger items).
Additional local moving regulations:
For health & safety reasons, local movers are not permitted to disconnect/reconnect appliances to any utilities supply (water/gas lines); toxic substances, paints, liquids and fuels for BBQ grills must be transported separately, not in the truck. Items of special value such as cash, important documents, jewelry are not covered by any clause within the moving contract. These items should be transported separately. Thank you for your understanding.
Mileage calculation, travel time :
For your reassurance: we do not charge for the crew time/gas traveling to your move; the clock starts when the crew arrive at your pick-up address (technically at ‘engine stop’). When mileage distance between move-out and move-in addresses exceeds 10 miles, we add a mileage calculation equal to the actual driving time on the day of your move(a formula known in the industry as ‘double drive time’; to cover truck wear & tear, gas, and crew time either to or from your move). For example, if it takes the truck 45-minutes to make the journey between your pick-up and drop-off points, we would add 45-minutes to the actual move duration to cover associated mileage costs (gas charges, truck wear and tear, maintenance, and crew time). Of course, actual journey time can go up or down on the day of the move depending on traffic conditions, so this charge cannot be predicted with complete accuracy.
Truck parking at the pick-up and drop-off addresses:
Local moving trucks are heavy vehicles designed for the street, with some driveways / parking lots being unable to take the weight of a large truck. If parking off-street, the customer warrants that they have obtained explicit permission from the property owner/HOA allowing our moving truck to park on site. The customer thereby assumes responsibility for any cracking to the driveway surface as a result of its construction being unable to take the weight of the truck. For complicated public street parking with at least 5 days notice, customers are strongly advised to consider official ‘No Parking’ signs from the city in order to ensure a close parking spot is available for the moving truck and to save costs. The closer moving truck able to park next to the front entrance, the quicker, safer, and smoover local moving will be. Please consult with property owner/HOA.
