Local moves usually take between 3-5 hours, depending on the size of your home and how much stuff you have. If you’re moving to a 1-bedroom apartment, it will probably only take a few hours. But if you’re moving to a 4-bedroom house, it could take all day. If you want to save time, start packing up your belongings a few weeks before the move. This way, you won’t have to do everything at the last minute. And be sure to label all of your boxes so you know where everything goes in your new home. With a little planning and preparation, your move can go smoothly and quickly.
