Moving Small Loads

What is a small load?

A small load is when the total weight of items being moved is below the minimum weight established by commercial van lines. A move that is below 1000 pounds is considered a small load. If you’re planning to hire a professional moving company to transport your belongings, but fall below the minimum weight, how do you move small loads across country? There are professional moving companies that specialize in moving small loads, with no minimum weight requirement. You pay for what is being moved. If you require any additional services, you will be charged extra.

Will a moving company move one piece of furniture?

Yes, small load moving companies can move one piece of furniture. This is one of the many advantages of hiring a small load mover. In addition to moving individual pieces, some small load movers also offer a range of other services including: partial loads, moving bulky items, packing/crating, and storage. When it comes to choosing a mover to transport your belongings, whether its locally, across the country, or internationally, you want to make sure you do your research and receive at least three estimates from reputable small load movers. Remember to check reviews on multiple sites; the Better Business Bureau is a great site to see if any complaints have been made. Check that any company you are considering is licensed and has a USDOT number.
