“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 does a local moving company typically cost?

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 moving estimate for local moving services in North Carolina today. Moves that are more than 36 miles long are considered a long-distance move and are priced based on weight and distance.

Do you offer insurance for local moves?

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

Types of Value Protection:

  • Basic Value Protection (BVP) – This type of protection comes with every 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 (FVP) – 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.
  • To ensure even more protection of your household goods, 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, reputable, cautious individuals are handling your belongings.
