What is Considered a Mini-Load or Small Load Move?
Small load moves are any loads under two thousand pounds. When it comes to residential mini-loads, a small move would be a one-bedroom apartment or a studio. Our network of mini-movers ship items such as furniture, safes, hot tubs, large household appliances, and so forth. If the combined weight of your load equals less than a ton, we consider that a small load.
How to calculate the weight of your shipment
You can easily estimate the weight of your shipment. Here’s how:
Measure the object you’re moving. Say your refrigerator measure 3’ x 2.5’ x 6’. That means that it is 45 cubic feet. Mini movers typically estimate the weight of household objects at seven pounds per cubic foot, which means your fridge will weigh 315 lbs.
You could also go on the rule-of-thumb mini movers use to estimate the weight of your household items, which is 1500 lbs per room. So, if you live in a small apartment or if you’re moving just one bedroom, the load should come in at under 2000 pounds.
