Moving furniture is not only cumbersome, but it can also be expensive. Other furniture moving companies often charge for shipping based on a minimum weight and it can take weeks to deliver your furniture. Unlike other movers, our experienced small furniture movers will securely transport even a single piece of furniture using packing blankets and great care to prevent any damage.

Do-it-yourself truck rental will provide you with the most convenient date schedule since you’re the one behind the wheel, but all that work and driving isn’t easy. DIY furniture shipping may have additional costs for fuel, pads and expenses in route that can end up costing more than full service furniture shipping services from MiniMoves. We also offer moving resources such as a comprehensive checklist to help you prepare for the entire process of shipping furniture.

MiniMoves offers high-quality furniture shipping services that are typically associated with big van lines; however, our small furniture movers provide a unique focus on small shipments. Our convenient furniture shipping services and guaranteed price let you plan with confidence.

In turn, we have high standards when it comes down to receive service. With MiniMoves my standards and expectations were met and exceeded. My representative took such excellent care of me.

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.

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.

Before You Ship Your Furniture

Over the years we have seen a lot when we move furniture. Based on that experience, we have a few things that we like to remind our customers to do before the scheduled date to ship or move furniture out of state.
  • First, be sure the people to whom you are shipping the furniture know it is coming. Yes, people like to surprise their friends or family with a gift of a nice table, chair or hutch. But, moving furniture requires coordination on both ends, so limiting surprises helps things go smoothly.
  • Clean out the furniture before it is moved. Inadvertently, you may end up sending your favorite watch, shirt or any other item. Take a last look just to be sure.
  • Have a clear path. When moving just one or a few pieces of furniture, there may be many things between the item and the exit. To help prevent possible damage and to save time, it is best to have a clear path for the movers to carry the furniture out. The same is true on the other end. When the furniture arrives, it is best to have a clear path to its new location.
  • If you are shipping furniture from or to an apartment building, notify the building management and ensure you have permission and are in compliance with moving rules. While you are technically not moving, moving furniture (1 or 10 pieces) may require permission just the same. It is best to check ahead of time.
With a few simple steps, you can make your furniture moving experience smooth and easy. If you have any questions about MiniMoves furniture shipping services, please feel free to contact our customer service team.
