It is one of your most prized possesions and you ca not wait to get it into your new place. But you ca not move it. It is too big, fragile or awkward to handle. Will a professional mover come out to carry just one item to a new location? Yes they will, with many movers specializing in single-item service or small moves.
It could be anything. But whatever it is, the item you need to move is just too much for you. That is why there are movers who will come out and take on the task. From a piano, hot tub, tree or mobile home, there is a mover out there experienced in handling any household item you need transported. However, there are exceptions to the rule. Movers are simply not allowed to transfer certain items including:
- Hazardous Materials
- Perishable Food
- Pets and Plants
- Irreplaceable Items
If your item is not noted above, then there should be no problem having someone pack and pick it up for a responsible price.
The total weight of a small move is 2,000 lbs. or less, which is equivalent to one and a half rooms of furnishings. Transporting furniture and items from a studio apartment or student dormitory is considered an undersized relocation. Small movers are not unlike full-service movers, willing to come out and pack up some particular items to save you the time and inconvenience.
If you do not mind covering your items with packing material and simply want help getting your belongings from one place to the next, you can contact a moving labor service to help you.
