Compare Local Movers And Save
There many things to think about when looking for a local moving company and making a local move. We take the stress away by allowing you to compare movers with just one web form submission. This cuts time and costs in half in most cases. As you know there is even more to think about beyond the move itself, so below we are sharing some information and thoughts that may help you in your local moving process.
Finding Local Gems in Your New Location
Moving locally still often means a lot of things you take for granted day to day are about to change. What about the places you get your local Thai food, fill your water bottles, or get your shirts dry cleaned? So many people are dependent on their phones today to tell them exactly where to go when they move to a new location, even just a few neighborhoods away from their old one. This can be a place to start, but why not try the old-fashioned way once in a while? Having conversations with friends who know the area and talking to people inside places you already like are both good ways to truly discover the hidden joys of your new stomping grounds.
For example, if you are moving locally and you love coffee, why not go into your old coffee shop and ask if they know anyone who makes it like they do, only two suburbs from here? Chances are if they work in a locally owned, family run coffee business they love it and care about it as much as you do; they’ll give you the real scoop fast, and more than likely they will also give you details and descriptions that allow you to compare several places they like. Yes, there is probably an “app” for that, but this way works too and gives you a chance to thank your current favorite for all their great service, anyway.
Professional Local Moving Companies
Which water and ice store costs five cents more a gallon? Which thrift store has the best finds? Where is the cheapest and least crowded Happy Hour for pizza? All of these questions and so much more can probably be answered by your new neighbors if you just ask. People do not take the time to know their neighbors as much as they used to, especially if they have just made a local move and they already have lots of friends to keep up with. It is completely worth it though. No one said you have to go to Happy Hour with them or anything, it just helps to get advice. As an added side benefit, now you might feel less nervous about going on vacation because Jim across the street is watching out for you.
Ever get to a local place you found on your phone that is nothing like what it said it was? That’s because things change all the time. Owners change, places move, sometimes national chains take over a place, and so on. It might not even have the same name you found anymore! Check in with someone at the local grocery store. Nine times out of ten, they know the area well and can tell you more about where the really great food is.

Finally, you might try using the computer after all for one part of this old-fashioned search. You can use social networking to ask if any of your friends have lived in this new neighborhood. Often there are a lot of people you know who used to live in places they’ve never told you about, and they’ll be happy to tell you about that Jamaican rum bar and restaurant. No matter where you’re moving locally, you’ll have more time to focus on fun things like talking to the new neighbors if your move went smoothly, so get your moving quote today and save cash for that new cup of coffee, or maybe dozens!
