We'll move the machines out a little bit

These are sentences I made up myself.

I am an inspector at a construction site on backfill earthwork. On Saturday, the contractor calls me and says:

"We won't be working there on Monday, so you don't need to come in. We'll move the machines out a little bit."

I understand what he means by "move the machines out a little bit" as "move the machines out of the site for some time". Is it usual to use "a little bit" to mean "for some time"?
