Why MiniMoves?

We have the move that you’re looking for! Full service at a do-it-yourself price. See and hear what our customers have to say about their experience with MiniMoves. Read More

MiniMoves was started in 1991 to fill a need for people who wanted to move a small amount of household goods without having to pay a high minimum charge to a van line or drive a truck and do it themselves. We have perfected the best methods to move shipments of one piece of furniture up to a full apartment. MiniMoves provides all of the careful handling you expect from professional movers but at a cost that is comparable to do-it-yourself truck or container rental.

Van lines with large trucks spend as much money coming to your home to load a small shipment as they do to load a five bedroom household. That’s why they set a minimum charge based on thousands of pounds of shipping weight.  MiniMoves does not have a minimum weight.

Container companies like PODS™ or PackRat™ offer fixed-size containers that you need to fill to keep your goods from shifting during stop-and-go driving and during the lifting and placement of the container. Or, what happens if you have one or two pieces too many that just won’t fit? What happens then? MiniMoves does not have a fixed size or a space minimum. Our service is totally scalable so we adjust to fit the size of your shipment. 

Truck rental seems like the low cost way to move state-to-state but when you up all of the costs for gas or diesel fuel, insurance coverage for the truck and for your belongings, pad and dolly rental, excess mileage or extra days, you’ll discover that you may not be saving any money at all and you’re doing all the work.

MiniMoves makes moving easy and affordable! We provide convenient dates on state-to-state moving that get your goods delivered in 2 – 14 days depending on the distance of your move. We have the lowest cargo claims rate of any interstate van line because of our exceptional method of protecting furniture. We use skilled, background checked, drug tested professional movers to deliver big service on small moves.  We provide inside pick up and inside delivery, all at a cost that is competitive with traditional van lines and do-it-yourself methods of moving.

From one piece to a full apartment, let MiniMoves plan a move that exactly fits your needs.
