What is a Local Residential Move?

A local residential move is any move of household goods that takes place within a 55-mile radius of origin and remains within the state of Idaho. For example, if you were moving household items from Meridian, Idaho to Boise, Idaho you would be requesting that Peasley Transfer to perform local residential moving services. Although multiple factors determine the cost of a local move, many are within your control as the customer with regard to time and materials. Several examples include; Are you prepared when the movers arrive? Are your belongings properly packed in sealed boxes? Is there convenient parking reserved for the moving van? Did you notify your Relocation Consultant of extremely heavy items? Are there belongings requiring disassembly or reassembly services? To what degree are you performing your own packing, unpacking and furniture placement?

Providing a smooth moving experience at a competitive cost is always our goal.  The best way to ensure that your move will be stress free, occur on time, and remain within budget is to provide us with as much information as possible in advance of your move date.  With the proper communications and planning, on moving day you will be able to sit back and relax while we properly protect your home and belongings, complete the packing and loading, and transport and deliver your belongings to your new home.
