What Counts as a Small Move?

If you are moving to another state or cross country — but not moving a large quantity of items, we can help!

Looking for apartment movers? Mayflower realizes that each move is unique, which is why we have created a small moves program for people who have less to move. Whether you need to move a one-bedroom condo or two-bedroom apartment, this program is designed for your convenience.

Mayflower agents are experienced in small moves and can handle everything from start to finish, including helping you to customize your move plan with moving services that meet your needs. Below are some examples of what Mayflower may consider a small move:

  • One-bedroom house
  • One-to three-bedroom apartment
  • Studio apartment
  • Dorm room
  • Storage unit

The following long distance moves may also qualify as a small move:

  • Dispersing family heirlooms
  • Moving a small office or shop
  • Helping parents move into an assisted living facility
  • Sending a few items to a friend in another state
  • Moving a young adult out of his/her parent’s house

Not sure if your move qualifies? Don’t worry; we’ll help you determine if your next move is a small move.

Apartment and Condo Moving Services

When it comes time to move from your apartment or condo, you may find the cost to be less than that of a traditional long distance move. However, small moves may come with complications (especially in urban areas) and require special considerations, such as reserved elevator times, parking permits, tight spaces and multiple flights of stairs.

With our small moves program, Mayflower has the experience and expertise to navigate you through the details of an apartment or other small move. Plus, we can bundle add-on service offerings that make for a quick and hassle-free moving experience. Costs may vary and will be determined upon receipt of your Mayflower moving quote.

Apartment Moving Tips

When moving into or out of an apartment, it’s always a good idea to incorporate these apartment moving tips:

  • Arrive at the apartment early to get your key and find an open parking spot.
  • Make sure you or your moving professional have the proper equipment when lifting heavy items up and down the stairs.
  • Pack your belongings ahead of time if you decide to self-pack – or ensure that full or partial packing options are included in your move quote.
  • Clean up the debris and trash from your old apartment to avoid cleaning fees.

Small Home Moving Services

Some moving companies shy away from servicing small moves because their processes and businesses may be designed for larger loads.

As a trusted member of the moving industry since 1927, Mayflower closely follows the trends involved with moving, and we adapt accordingly. With decluttering and minimalistic styles of living on the rise, we understand that now more than ever, moving companies need to accommodate the small move.

Mayflower will move your belongings regardless of the size of your home, and you will still receive the benefits that are included in our standard moving quote. Our moving services are customizable, so you can choose services specific to your small move. From full service moving to packing and unpacking options, Mayflower will serve as your trusted guide through the entire move process, no matter the size.
