Sterling Van Lines has been the leading pioneer for over 20 years in the small moves, moving industry. We offer small moves across the United States. We can be almost anywhere in the continental United States. We can handle everything from pianos, fine art, crystal and antiques to electronics and computers with full service door to door inside delivery and pick-up.
Anything 2000 pounds or less, qualifies as a small move. For example, if you have a piano that weighs 600lbs and that’s the only item you will be moving or you have 1,500lbs of moving boxes packed with some furniture. That’s perfect! We try our hardest to accommodate and customize your move the way you want it so even if it’s over 2,000lbs, we can move you, anywhere but we specialize in moving partial loads locally and nationwide.
Very few moving companies specialize in small moves. Sterling Van Lines is one of them.
As small move experts we can offer two distinct advantages:
Save money with our low weight minimum. Unlike most other moving companies, which want to move larger 5,000-15,000 pound loads and have a 2,000-pound minimum, Sterling Van Lines does not require a high minimum poundage for small moves — in fact, our low required minimum is around 400 pounds. As an example, if you have 500 or 800 pounds to move, we will only charge you for the exact amount of pounds — again, unlike most moving companies, who will charge you for the full 2,000 pounds. This saves you money.
Protecting your furniture. Small moves are our specialty, we are experts at it. Each piece of furniture will be wrapped in blankets and placed in our vans in such a way as to ensure its safe delivery to you. You will not be charged “extra” for protecting your items in blankets or using tape. And, upon delivery, we will place your items exactly where you want them in your home.
How can I tell how much weight I have to move?
You can fill out our free moving quote form and we will do all the work or you can follow the example below. All standard movers will figure out the pounds involved in your move. The standard formula used in the moving industry is seven pounds per cubic foot.
To calculate cubic feet, simply multiply length by width by height. Here’s an example:
|7 feet long, 2 1/2 feet wide, 3 feet tall|
|7 x 2 1/2 x 3 = 52.50 cubic feet|
|52.50 cubic feet x 7 = 367.5 pounds|
Small moves are moves involving 2,000 pounds or less – about 1-1/2 rooms of furniture.
Examples of small moves are:
