Introduction: The moving rate = the labor of movers/hour (based on the size of the move) + $200.00 moving fee * (moving fee* comprises a truck, gas, mileage, furniture padding with thick moving blankets, shrink wrapping, tape rolls, disassembling and reassembling furniture, floor dollies and hand-trucks). DO THE LOCAL MOTION WITH ME is a family-owned Virginia Limited Liability Company insured and certified by the State Corporation Commission of the Commonwealth of Virginia and the United States Department of Transportation. Our team has been working for years in commercial logistics, customer service and moving companies. I and my wife had a nomadic history. We lived, studied, and worked in several countries. We moved from one place to another with learning and working purposes. We personally have learned that short and long-distance moving can be a complex, grueling, and stressful challenge since we went through all these steps. However, we know that moving to a new place can induce positive changes in your life, namely it can bring new opportunities for work and education, it can help you to find new friends and set new goals that can help you grow. We offer affordable prices, meticulous planning, prompt and amiable service to our customers, as well as well-trained movers you can lean on. We will succor you with all aspects of your moving: estimating, preparing, arranging, packing, collecting, transporting, and unpacking. Liaise with our team and we will develop an optimal algorithm for your moving within the DMV area!

I had a PHENOMENAL experience with DO THE LOCAL MOTION movers. It was my first time using professional movers and they have set the bar incredibly high. From the moment I reached out for a quote, Lydia was kind and responsive. The day of the move, the team showed up right on time and were so efficient- even when we had an issue with the loading dock at my new apartment- they took it in stride and maneuvered the whole thing seamlessly. They even were kind enough to use some of their spare screws to professionally assemble a coffee table that has been wobbly for me since I lost the original screws. They were truly incredible, very fair priced and worth every penny, and I will certainly be using them again the next time I move apartments. Cannot recommend them enough!

So glad I found this company. The movers were on time, professional, *very* quick and did a great job. All of my furniture, tvs, boxes, etc were handled well and with care. The guys were friendly and professional. Great communication throughout. I hope I do not have to move again any time soon, but I am glad that if I do, I found a reliable and trustworthy moving company here. I recommend Do the Local Motion to anyone needing movers!

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    The formula for the total cost of relocation is equal to the sum of the relocation costs and the relocation fee: The total cost of moving = labor/hour (depending on the size of the move) + a moving fee * (may vary). * Moving fees include truck, gas, mileage, moving services and moving equipment (furniture padding with thick moving blankets; shrink wrapping; furniture disassembly and reassembly; tools, floor dollies, and hand trucks). Our relocation rate for all work is at least 2 hours. The hourly rate depends on the size of your home and the inventory list. There are no hidden fees. We do not move pianos and hot tubs.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    A new customer liaises with our coordinator, provides all details of a planning relocation, including all idiosyncrasies (e.g. the accurate date, time, address, the presence of heavy items, the total number of boxes, the size of the apartment/house and etc.). We compile this information in order to estimate the customer's move, calculate time, provide the most accurate price, and circumvent the planning fallacies. Afterward, we schedule your moving day. Send you the confirmation and our team will be at your place according to your schedule.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    All movers are trained and have experience of working in several moving companies. They are not neophytes in this field. Our family has degrees in management, economics, and public policy from Georgetown University and management certificates from the University of Maryland, and the University of Brunei Darussalam. The owner is also a professional mechanic.
