This question is more common than you think. It is logical that someone needs to move one object and is not in the situation to do it alone. That kind of move has a name; it is called a small move. So, yes, you can hire movers to move one item!

Many situations require this, and these are some of them:

  • The same house/apartment move: Suppose you need to move a heavy object from one room to another or from one part of your room to another. You can hire movers who will take all the steps to protect the furniture and the surrounding walls and floors. They will use floor covers and moving blankets; no matter how heavy and complicated it is, they will find a way.
  • The same building move: Moving an item from one floor to another is also an option. It can happen once somebody finds a better apartment in the same building or decides to switch it up. You can move fragile lamps, chandeliers, heavy furniture, or electronics.
  • Moving one item in long-term or short-term storage- Do you want to clear your space but save the item? You can put it in long-term storage where it will be safe for however long you want. You may want to switch it up or make more space for guests. You can use the short-term storage and bring it back to you when you want it!

What factors are affecting the price?

Before hiring a small move, be sure to ask for the price.

There is usually a minimum price you pay, which depends on the company and the timing. The moving season is the busiest from May to September, so the prices are also rising then.

Is it worth it? It is worth it if you want to protect something fragile and ensure it is safe and brought to the precise location.

It is not worth it if the move is pricier than the item you want to move. For example, it is not profitable if you move a cheap couch but pay double for the moving itself!

Ask your moving company about their terms when moving one item.

Roadway moving also provides you with small moves as well as long-term and short-term storage!
