Local Moving Services

Whether you’re moving down the street or one town over, moving can be stressful. That’s why you should leave the heavy lifting to local movers!

Marathon Moving Company knows moving furniture inside your house is not fun. No matter how badly you want to finish the task, moving furniture can eventually seem like a chore. It’s easy to start developing thoughts like “I don’t care how it gets there,” but that type of thinking can also lead to a lost table leg or a scratch on top of your dresser from trying to get it to that perfect spot.

With Marathon Moving’s in-house moving features, moving heavy items just got a lot easier.

What makes us stand out is our attention to detail and special love and care for your belongings. We also understand that no two moves are alike and each requires its own specific plan.

“I worked solely with Tyler throughout my entire process. He came out to give me an estimate within 15 minutes of calling and had an estimate emailed to me within an hour after our meeting. He was incredibly professional during any of our brief phone calls, emails or texts. His quote was very accurate for all services provided and I would highly recommend them to anyone needing a local moving service.”

Local Moving Services FAQ


How much do you charge?

A Local Move is designated by the NCUC as those under 35 miles door-to-door, and those services are billed hourly. The hourly rate does not change, and is the same seven days a week. Our hourly services are all billed in increments of 15 minutes, saving you from paying for an extra hour should the move go 10 minutes past the hour. Let our local moving company provide you with a free quote for local moving services in North Carolina today. Moves that are more than 36 miles are priced based on weight and distance.

Do you offer insurance for local moves?

Movers are not insurance agents and do not have the ability to sell insurance. However, Marathon Moving Company is fully licensed and insured. Since we understand accidents can happen, we also offer our customers Value Protection.

Types of Value Protection:

  • Basic Value Protection – This type of protection comes with the move and values your furniture at 60 cents per pound if anything is damaged. It is a very low level of coverage and it’s offered for free with any local moving services.
  • Full Value Protection – With FVP, the customer will declare the value of their load at the beginning of the move. This type of protection is in the event of a total loss, and ensures that all damaged items will be covered for full replacement value.

We are very selective of the local movers we allow into our customers’ homes so anyone who applies for employment with us must go through a full background check. Always rest assured that safe and cautious individuals are handling your belongings.

What types of services do you offer for local moves?

We can pack anything from pots and pans to chandeliers. Before we begin loading your belongings into the moving truck, we will chat with you about the move and see if you have any special requirements or requests. From start to finish, our local movers customize the move to meet your unique needs. This could mean additional stops or unpacking and storage in our secure, climate-controlled storage facility.

You can also take advantage of full or partial unpacking local moving services. Marathon Moving Company will even take away the annoying mountain of leftover boxes for you. We’re completely hassle-free. Our local moving company can even assist you with redecorating your home.
