In California, a move is considered as a local move if the distance between both locations is under 100 miles. If you are moving locally, most moving companies in California will offer you an hourly rate for two men and a moving truck. Regardless of the size of your move, you will likely be paying an hourly rate, beginning when your movers arrive at your first location.
Understanding the difference between a small move and a large move is important when your move is greater than 100 miles. Rather than charging hourly, moving and shipping companies will charge you based on the weight of your shipment, and the distance between both locations. In this case, a move is considered as a small move when the shipment weighs less than 2,100lbs. Why 2,100lbs? Most moving companies and van lines require 2,100lbs minimums, even if you are only shipping 1 piece of furniture! Box Brothers does not require minimums and will only charge you for the actual weight of your shipment. Contact Box Brothers today, the small move specialists!
