This is a great question, and one that is commonly brought up by people who are getting ready to move a few items, but aren't sure exactly how to accomplish the job. Would it be more economically feasible to move the items yourself, or to hire someone to do it for you? If you do decide to hire someone, is it even possible to hire movers for only a few items? Well, the answer to that question would be yes. What you describe (2 chairs, some framed pictures and china items) is characteristic of a small move.
Small moves are usually how we describe the shipment sizes for small apartments or dorm rooms, however they can even be as small as just a few items, as yours is. Any move that is 2,000 pounds or less is considered to be a small move. Small movers are a great option for handling a shipment that is too big for parcel shipment but too small for moving companies' minimum size requirements. In addition, small moves can cover any kind of distance, whether it's moving something down the street or all the way across the country, so your move from Delaware to North Carolina would be completely feasible.
