    My wife and I wanted to personally thank you for the outstanding job your employees did in moving our daughter from Roanoke to Abingdon, VA on December 19, 2013. During the economic crisis we have been experiencing there has been several local and state to state moves necessary to keep a job or obtain better living conditions in our family. I am satisfied that considering all of the moves none have reached the quality of the move...

Consider the Size of Your Local Move

Considering hiring a professional moving company? At Heritage Moving & Storage Inc., we can handle your packing, moving, and storage with excellence.

First we’ll determine the size of your move by conducting a walk-through in your home. The walk-through is used to determine the number of men and trucks needed to do the job. This allows us to give you an accurate price for your move.

Here’s how we look at it:

The price of your local move is based on an hourly rate for “move time.”
The hourly rate varies depending on the time of the year.

“Move time” is the time it takes for loading and unloading your belongings.
For every room of furniture you have, you can estimate about one hour of move time.

For up to 6-7 rooms of furniture, we typically use a three-man crew and one truck. For more than 6-7 rooms, we use a crew of four or five men and two trucks (or two trips).
If you you have a big move, we still want to finish the job in 7 -8 hours, which is why we add to the crew. If you have a four-bedroom house, we could use a three-man crew, but the job would take 10-12 hours. That’s too much wear and tear on you, our customer, and on our movers.

If you’re moving around the corner, we can make two trips using one truck. If you’re moving an hour away, we’ll use two trucks to save time and make the move more economical for you.

If fuel costs spike, we do not raise our hourly rates.
Instead, we may add a fuel charge to offset some of the fuel costs. With Heritage Moving & Storage Inc., you will always know exactly what you’re paying for.

We have beens serving Southwest Virginia since 1993, and our experience in the moving industry goes back to 1975. If you live in Roanoke, Salem, Smith Mountain Lake, Blacksburg, Botetourt County, Vinton, or anywhere in Southwest Virginia, let our family move your family!
