Short Haul

Home » Short Haul

Between long-distance moving and local moving, there’s a gray area called short hauls. Short hauls are generally within about 450 miles from pickup to delivery location. In California, that might mean you are moving from San Francisco to Los Angeles, moving from San Francisco to San Diego, or even moving from San Francisco to Portland.

Short haul moving is a little different from both local and long-distance moving. When you are moving across the country, your shipment shares a truck with other families. This saves you money, but because we might drop off and pick up along the way, it can take up to a couple of weeks for delivery.

Local moves, though, are direct. We pack you up, load the truck, and then deliver, usually on the same day.

Short hauls fall right in the middle. While customers don’t get the immediate pickup and delivery schedule, it’s pretty darned close. If it’s more important that you save money than receive your household goods within a few days, we can consolidate your shipment with others.

Short hauls are like all moves in many ways, though. We offer a full range of services, including packing, unpacking, and storage. If you want the bare-boned service, we can offer you that too. If you’d like to pack, we can deliver you a customized package of packing materials at no additional charge.

If there’s a gap in time between when you need to move out and when you can move in, we can put your items in our spotless, secure storage.

Wherever you are moving within the Continental US, give us a call at (877) 576-8882. Our specially trained moving consultants will guide you through your move and even offer you cost-saving tips. Find out why we’re a Yelp favorite.
