1. What is Small Load Moving?

When you have to relocate, there are minute details to take care of, but each moving project will be unique to your situation. One such move is partial load, which is done by small movers. If you are temporarily relocating, you may need this type of service. You may not want to bring all your belongings or you may have put some in storage. It could be that you are downsizing and had a garage sale, but have to move the main items to your new location. The scenarios can be different for each person. No matter what the situation, you may have to move a partial load using one of the small movers in your city.

2. Understanding a Partial Load

You will need to understand what is involved in a partial load, how it is organized and what you should do. It can be simple and easy to move a partial load, as long as you have the right information and assistance. Below is a guide on how to choose the appropriate small movers for your partial load.

For a successful partial load move, the key is being organized at the location where the household stuff will be going. This is important so the movers will know where to put your belongings. You also need to find a good company that constitutes what small movers really are. The company you choose should be experienced, knowledgeable, skilled and efficient. At this junction, you are not in the mood for any mishaps since you have already done the large move already and want to get really settled in.

Prior to calling the moving company, think about your budgetand get the right packing supplies for cost effectiveness. When you call the company, find out if they provide packing supplies such as:

  • Mini Boxes
  • Crates
  • Packing Paper
  • Bubble Wrap
  • Blankets
  • Packing Tape

5. Protect Your Move & Do the Research to be Successful

You can also gather these materials on your own, but find out if it is affordable enough to save you that trouble. Of course, there are some ways to save money. You can rent a small moving truck yourself. But if you don't have the help unpacking that you need, it will be more difficult this way. Get a quote from one or more of the small movers that you contact and then compare the cost. You don’t want your small move to be more expensive than your previous relocation. So get the facts before making a decision. You should also check out the reviews written aboutall ofthe small movers that you have contacted. You don’t want any surprises.

I have organized a partial move for next month, but I will only be able to get there a week later. I don't have anyone to check in the new flat, is it possible to get partial storage and what does it include? | Reply

Hi Tracey. Many movers are able to keep your things in their storage for a monthly fee until the day you are able to move your things into your new flat. Check with movers around your area to see if they offer a storage service as they are the movers that are best for your situation. | Reply

Im moving from my studio apartment into a two bedroom house soon. Would it be better for me to get a small moving company or go with one of the larger, full service guys? Im pretty much moving across town, I'd say no more than 15 miles or so. Considering the size of the place i'm in now, what do you think would be cheaper for me to do? | Reply

Hi Corey, I think the smaller moving company will suffice for your needs. The full service moving companies are more for people moving from home to home. There shouldn't be too much in your apartment for a mover to move. Choosing the smaller moving company will save you money compared to hiring the larger mover. However, the larger mover may be able to get your move done in a quicker time so keep that in mind if you want a faster move. | Reply

Is a DOT number required if you are starting out as a small mover? I started helping moving local residents with my truck and I'm thinking of starting a legitimate business. Right now, I don't have a DOT number but I am willing to get one if it means I can start moving people further away. At the moment, I've moved friends and local neighbors but haven't moved any goods that are too large or too far. I want to continue to move people but I also want to make sure I'm following the laws regarding movers. | Reply

Hey Bobby, if you are planning to start a business as a legitimate moving company, I highly recommend that you get your USDOT number. You are going to need it to start moving customers that are moving far away from their current location. Sooner or later, you are going to be using a large truck instead of a regular pickup truck which will be inspected by DOT officers on the road from time to time. To get your DOT number you must first purchase membership of an arbitration program which is something that we sell. Proof of arbitration is one of the things you need to actually get your DOT number. | Reply
