Licensed to perform both local moving services in New Jersey and interstate moving, Fast Moving has the experience and expertise to take care of your relocation whether it is going down the block or to the other end of New Jersey.
Having been in business for 35 years in New Jersey means that we understand the difference between Hackensack and Hackettstown or Morristown and Moorestown. We have grown our office from the start by providing first class service to the local Warren County community. Our understanding of the local New Jersey moving requirements allows us to offer custom tailored services to make sure that your local move is done right. Since then, we have expanded our company to serve the moving needs of ALL of New Jersey and the world!
We also understand that just because you may be moving only a few miles either in Hackettstown or Long Valley, the complexity of your move is just as significant as if you were moving cross-country. That is why we apply the same proven service delivery that we have developed over the years to all of our moves, ensuring that we provide consistency and reliability to all of our customers.
And these are just some of the ways that we make our Hackettstown moving company the right choice for your local moving needs.

Local Moving Checklist
If you’re preparing for a local move, there are several things you’ll want to make sure you have in place before the big day.
Packing supplies: Make sure you have enough boxes, tape, bubble wrap, and other supplies necessary to ensure your belongings safely make it from start to finish. If you have specialty items or antiques that may require crating or experienced handling, keep those things in mind.
Storage: Many families find it helpful to utilize temporary or permanent storage during transition times. Whether you’re trying to downsize, or need to move things quickly from your old place in order to prepare to sell, looking into storage opportunities can save you hassle.
Hire a moving company: Having a trusted local moving company by your side during the moving process can save you and your family the stress and worry that comes with organizing a self-move.
Average Cost of Local Moving
This depends on how much you have the move, and the types of items you’ll be moving to your new home or business. Feel free to give us a call to get a quote regarding the specifics of your move. Typically families will spend anywhere from a few hundred dollars and up depending on how many rooms worth of belongings will be moved, if the moving company is responsible for any portion of the packing, if there are any items that require special handling, etc. Feel free to give us a call at Fast Moving Company and request a quote on your upcoming move.
How is my cost estimate determined for a local move?
This is one of the most frequently asked questions we get. Cost estimates are determined based on the time is takes to execute the move, from start to finish, the number of rooms you’re moving out of, and if there are any specialty items you’re moving. In other words, if we average a two hour move, you’re moving from a 3 bedroom house into a two bedroom apartment, and you’re moving a piano and several large pieces of furniture with you, these would be the criteria we would utilize to put together a cost estimate. Additionally, we may have for the number of boxes you plan to move. Give us a call to find out more.
Are my things and my home insured during a move?
We carry insurance for our movers, our moving equipment, and your belongings. Anything exemptions or items not included under our insurance will be explained to you prior to the move. Even with our insurance in place, it’s still a good idea to make sure your valued items are listed under your home insurance/renter’s insurance and you have them appraised prior to the move. This puts you in the best possible position to recover any losses in the event that something does happen during the moving process. We’re happy to answer whatever questions you have about our insurance and how it works.
