Short Distance Moving

If you have a house move coming up that is only across a short distance, you may be considering doing it all by yourself – or at least with the help of some well-meaning family and friends!


The truth is there is no such thing as “only” a short distance move. It can be just as difficult, just as involved – and just as stressful – as a longer distance one.


That’s why over the years we have been trusted by hundreds of people to help them to complete their moves – even over very short distances of just a couple of blocks, a few streets and even within the same apartment complex. 

Trusted Short Distance Movers

Why do people hire us time and time again, irrespective of the distance? Because they know that we will:

Provide all the Moving Help

At the end of the day, when it comes time to move you may well rope in some family and friends to provide some muscle. They will likely help if they can – after all, they are your friends and family! But ask yourself how much time you could take out of your own schedule to help someone else move. Put the shoe on the other foot, it might not feel as comfortable! It can be hard to coordinate times when everyone is free of work and family commitments too, meaning you have to squeeze your move into the time frame that is available. A rushed move is more likely to go wrong and end up with damaged belongings or furniture, or even worse.

No Risk of Personal Injury

A home move – even a local one – can be fraught with danger. There is the obvious hazard of dropping heavy items, but there is also the ever present risk of injuries from picking up heavy items incorrectly. All of our staff are highly trained and highly experienced in moving a wide range of items across different terrain, up and down stairs and into and out of vehicles of various heights. Don’t risk the safety and long-term health of yourself and your family just to save a few bucks.

Protect the Possessions You Care About

Surely you want to protect the items that you own? If so, no one is better placed to do that than we are, as a professional moving company. First off we can help to pack your possessions so they are as protected as possible for the move. It may not seem necessary with a short move, but you should not underestimate the damage can occur even on a short journey to poorly packed items! Secondly, our staff know how to handle items. They know how to lift to distribute weight across the strongest part of a piece of furniture, they know how to load and secure it to the vehicle without leaving strap marks or pressure cracks.

Hopefully that gives you just a small snap shot of the advantages that can come by hiring us to help you in your upcoming move. For more information or for a no obligation quote please don’t hesitate to get in contact with us!
