A “local move” is any move of 50 miles or less starting in Long Beach or a nearby city.

Our Local Moving Services

In-Home & Company In-Office Moves

Maybe you’re downsizing but want to keep some belongings in storage until you know where they’ll go. We can pick them up, store them for you, and deliver them when you’re ready.

Moving & Short-Term Storage

We’ll pack your belongings in vaults and store them until your move, preventing damage and making your move easier.

Apartment Moves

We can move you from an apartment to a newly purchased house, from one apartment complex to another, or even within the same apartment complex. Don’t wreck your back dragging that heavy sofa down the stairs. Call us instead.

House-to-House Moves

Walsh local trucks can move a 5-bedroom house. Our long-haul trucks pull full-size trailers.

The more we help with your house-to-house move, the smoother it will be. For instance, you might want us to do a portion of your packing, at least for fragile items like glassware, fine art, and antiques.

Packing & Unpacking Services

We’ll pack and unpack your belongings for you. This includes wrapping furniture, disassembling and assembling items, and boxing up your possessions. Our movers are trained to handle your most delicate items — and your bulkiest.

Piano Moving

Pianos are heavy and surprisingly delicate. A tight corner or even sidewalk cracks can be significant obstacles for a half-ton piece of furniture.

Walsh Long Beach has moved everything from spinets to concert grands and will take the utmost care with your prize possession.
