To many people, local moving is the most straightforward DIY project. Besides, who can’t handle a few boxes and furniture down the street?

Well, this is a wrong assumption.

Local moving is just as challenging as any other type of move, if not more.

A lot goes into local moving, including planning, logistics, packing, and of course, the move itself. If one thing goes wrong, it can throw off your entire moving schedule.

That’s why you need professional local moving experts at Cavalier Moving.

We understand how emotionally and mentally draining a move can be. We will take care of every single detail, from planning to execution, so you can focus on what’s important – your life.


Many fly-by-night moving companies pop up and offer subpar services. They overcharge, break your belongings, and don’t even show up on time.

You don’t deserve such shoddy service – and that’s where Cavalier Moving comes in. We’re local professional movers who will treat you and your belongings with the utmost respect.

Our movers are highly trained and will take extra care of your furniture, appliances, and other possessions.

We understand that moving is a stressful time, so we’ll do everything in our power to make the transition as smooth as possible for you.

Cavalier Moving offers competitive pricing without sacrificing quality or service. We achieve this through years of experience in the moving industry and a team of dedicated workers.

We’ll work around your schedule to make sure your move happens when it’s most convenient for you.

We don’t cut corners – we do the job right the first time so that you can start enjoying your new home as soon as possible.


Our moving process starts with a comprehensive walk-through of your home. A walk-through allows us to review all items that will be moved and to answer any questions you may have about the process.

Below is an overview of what our walk-through entails:

  • We review your home’s layout to develop the most efficient moving plan. The layout includes stairs, doorways, and other obstacles that may impact the move. Also, we’ll note any delicate or valuable items that require special care.
  • We take inventory of all items that we have to move. This includes large furniture, appliances, boxes, and miscellaneous items.
  • We discuss any special handling requirements for delicate or valuable items.
  • We agree on your moving date and estimated arrival time at your new home.
  • We complete a walk-through of your neighborhood and surrounding areas to ensure a smooth move day. During this, we find the best route for our trucks, secure parking, and more.
  • We explain our moving services and pricing options. We want to be transparent about our pricing so there are no surprises on move day.

Remember, we don’t surcharge for things like long carry, flights of stairs, or tight spaces. All of this is included in your hourly rate!

Hiring local residential movers comes with several perks, including:

  • Knowledge of the local area: A local moving company will know shortcuts to get you to your new home faster. They’ll also be more familiar with the traffic patterns and any construction that might slow your move.
  • Flexibility: A local mover is more likely to be able to work around your schedule. They will accommodate you if you’re moving on a weekend or need to store your belongings for a few days.
  • Reliability: National moving companies are often less reliable. If they’re late or don’t show up, it’s not a big deal because they have other customers to take care of. A local mover knows that their reputation is on the line, so they’re more likely to be punctual and professional.
  • Affordability: Local movers typically charge less than national companies. This is because they don’t have to pay for tolls or overnight stays.

At Cavalier Moving, we are your local residential moving company.

We offer all of the above benefits and much more! Whether moving a few blocks down the street or across the town, we will get you there safely and on time. Call us today for a free quote!
