Local Moving and Storage services

Dearman Moving & Storage is a reliable resource for local moves. We consider a local move one that can usually be done with one-day pickup and delivery, which is any move in Ohio. As long as your “pick up” location falls near our service areas, we’ll be more than happy to assist with any local moves performed by our crews in our vehicles.

Our experienced staff, proven systems for management, and communication with customers make your move less stressful give you a pleasant, easy moving experience.

Home/Apartment/Condo Moving

Moving across town or to a town nearby? We can help you move locally to your new home, moving any belongings you like from one location to the next. Our movers are very careful to avoid dents, scratches, and more so your old place is in tip-top shape when we leave. This is especially helpful to renters leaving their old house or apartment who may be trying to get their security deposit back upon moving out. 

Equipment & Truck Rentals

We are a certified Penske dealer that can provide moving trucks, vehicle trailers, and any equipment rentals you need for your move.

Furniture Moving

Moving small furniture pieces without specialized equipment and tools is relatively easy. Moving big, bulky furniture, on the other hand, is so much more - navigating tight hallways, stairs, and door frames. We make moving furniture easy by helping take care of even the heaviest pieces of furniture. We even move safes or specialty items like pool tables, treadmills, and more.

Packing Services

Trained Dearman Moving associates can help with all your packing needs, so you can pack as little or as much as you want. In addition, we can optionally supply any moving boxes, tape and more if needed. You can ensure that your items are being transported safely to your new destination.

Moving Labor: Loading and Unloading

Qualified moving help to get what you need to where you need it. Our experienced movers can load or unload any boxes you’ve packed or items you need to bring including furniture, appliances, and more.

How Much Does a Local Move Cost?

The answer is – “it depends.”  At Dearman, we don’t have a standard moving cost but we weigh various factors that change for each job:

  1. Distance - how far away you are moving? Milage helps us determine how much time and gas we’ll spend on our trip moving you from one place to the next 
  2. Level of service - Are we cleaning up the old home after the move? Are we packing your home or are you? What types of items are we moving and are they fragile - needing an extra layer of protection or special boxes to transport safely? 
  3. Volume - How many boxes will you need to transport will affect the vehicle type and the number of packers you will need, both of which will affect the price of moving. Obviously, the more boxes you have, the bigger truck and more people we’d need, increasing the cost of the move. 
  4. Where are you moving to and from? Are you moving from an apartment on the 2nd floor into a house or vice versa? Is there an elevator or wide stairwell we can use? Depending on the situation, this may cause the level of difficulty of the move to be higher
  5. Timing - are you moving one place to the next or do you have a need for short term storage between moving dates? We’d prefer to move everything at once but we know timing of moving isn’t always at your convenience. We’re flexible and can help you move according to your needs

Why Hire For A Local Move?

The short answer is the time, energy, and effort it takes to move. On top of maintaining your regular life - work, school, feeding your family, sports, and all your other weekly tasks - you now have to go through the process of getting a moving truck, packing everything up, and trying to manage your life partially in boxes while you transition from one house to the next. Don’t forget cleaning up your old home or apartment after you move (to get your security deposit back), unpacking, organizing your new home, and making sure your utilities are transferred so you have water, electric and more.

To say the least, moving can be an extremely stressful time and that’s why we’re here to help.
