In the moving and transportation industry, a "live load" means that you are forced to load or unload your items in short period of time, often while the driver of the truck or trailer waits. A live load is common for storage containers and moving trailers in big cities, like New York City, Seattle and Chicago, where parking is limited. A live load is almost always required for international shipping containers, regardless of the location.

Regardless of the reason why you have a live load you should notify the mover you selected of your scheduling needs right away. Learn more about scheduling moving help when you have a time constraint.
