Small Load Moves

Great Guys Movers helps you find licensed movers who specialize in small load moves for cross-country or local moving. Whether you’re moving a refurbished piano you bought on eBay, a few household appliances, or the contents of a tiny studio apartment, our movers can help. Instead of renting a truck or storage container and moving the load yourself, you can quickly arrange shipment through a local or nationwide mover for this type of small long distance move. Small shipment or one item moving companies consolidate your belongings with other transfers to fill the truck, save on fuel, and cut down on costs and can work with you on price even if you only need to hire movers to move one item.

Cheap Small Load Movers

Many normal moving companies don’t handle these mini-moves because it’s more lucrative to relocate 3-4-bedroom homes and large offices. So, when you first start looking, tracking down a mover to handle small moving jobs might seem tricky. Great Guys taps into an entire nationwide network of movers for small moves, helping you obtain quotes from licensed, insured professionals that perform this type of move.

What is a Small Load Move?

In the moving industry, a small load move is any move under 2000-lbs. For residential moves, a studio or 1-bedroom apartment typically qualifies as a small move. Small load movers also ship household appliances, hot tubs, pianos, safes, furniture, and other items. If the cumulative weight of the shipment is less than one ton, then it’s considered a small load.

How to Calculate the Moving Shipment Weight?

Estimating the weight of your shipment is simple! Here are some ways to do it yourself:Take measurements of the object you’re moving. For example, if your refrigerator measures 3 feet x 2.5 feet x 6 feet, that’s 45 cubic feet. Most moving companies estimate the weight of household objects at 7 lbs per cubic foot. Therefore, the estimated weight of the fridge is 315 lbs (45 cubic feet x 7 pounds per cubic foot).

Alternatively, you may estimate approximately 1500-lbs of stuff per room in your home. If you live in a small apartment, or you’re just moving one bedroom, the move is probably just under 2000-lbs.
