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®.

MiniMoves® was started in 1991 to fill a need for people who wanted to move small items 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. Our apartment movers provide all of the careful handling and moving packing services 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 move small items 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 small item moving service is totally scalable so we adjust to fit the size of your shipment.

Truck rental seems like the low cost way to move apartments 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 instead of relaxing, while professional apartment movers load your stuff, you’re doing all the work.

MiniMoves® makes moving easy and affordable! We provide convenient dates on small item moving that get your goods delivered in 2 – 14 days depending on the distance of your move. MiniMoves® has the lowest cargo claims rate of any interstate van line because of our exceptional furniture shipping services. We use skilled, background checked, drug tested professional state to state movers to deliver big service on small moves. Our highly skilled, professional apartment movers 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.

How Do We Find A Mover We Can Trust And Spot The Ones To Stay Clear Of? 

Cedar Rapids – Martha T.

The move was within town although originally they had agreed to make the move across country when that was the original situation. They were sensitive and responsive to my mother’s and our needs, and the move was handled quickly and well. We did the packing so they handled heavy boxes and furniture. Furniture pieces were very important to my mother, family pieces, and everything was moved and arrived without a problem. Very happy with their work and would recommend them.

Cedar Rapids – Nick W.

Moved a lot of furniture (plenty of it being heavy) in a timely manner. Very friendly movers, polite, and cautious with everything. Not a single mark on walls or furniture. All of that and they are priced well. Highly recommend.
