Question to MovingPlace

from Sharon N. in CA - Friday, November 10, 2017

How many feet does the truck require. I live on a fairly narrow Lane.

MovingPlace Response

Hi Sharon, The smallest truck that we use is 28 feet long and 8.5 feet wide. So narrow lanes with limited access can be a problem. I would suggest calling our office and giving us the exact address, we can look it up and see if access is too restricted for us to bring a moving truck to your home. Movingplace

Question to MovingPlace

from Josh M. in CA - Wednesday, October 18, 2017

How much would a long distance moving truck from Los Angeles, CA to Corvallis, Oregon cost? Also, are there planned stops for night stay if required? Lastly, are the trucks prepared for snowy weather and terrain?

MovingPlace Response

Hi Josh, We don't put pricing on the forum because the pricing fluctuates with the time of year and sizes of shipments. I see you filled out a quote form, so we will email current pricing to you. Transit on the long distance moving from CA to OR is 2-3 days. We can get on the phone with you and figure out exactly when you would need to load to meet your delivery date needs. Yes, all of our long distance trucks are prepared for snowy and winter weather. Movingplace

Question to MovingPlace

from T. L. L. in GA - Friday, August 18, 2017

I wanted to receive a quote however, I am unable to give a destination city. We've sold our home and have not found another home to buy yet. We know we will be moving somewhere locally but not sure where as of yet. Can I still receive a quote?

MovingPlace Response

Hi TL. Movingplace only handles long distance moves (state to state and cross country). If you need to do a local move or moving truck, we would refer you to a local mover in your area. Movingplace

Question to MovingPlace

from Maryam A. in MI - Thursday, June 22, 2017

Just wanted to know the prices since I'm moving from Michigan to Houston. How much will it cost to move 2 cars and get a moving truck that I can load myself and you drive?

MovingPlace Response

Hi Maryam, We can certainly help you with a moving truck and driver for your household move. You do the loading and unloading. We provide the truck, fuel, driver, and door to door transport. For the car shipment, we will put those on an auto transporter truck (the big tractor trailers that haul 8 or 9 cars at a time). That will be the least expensive and most convenient way to move. Movingplace

Question to MovingPlace

from Jaylee B. in MT - Wednesday, May 24, 2017

Question to MovingPlace

from Sydney W. in GA - Saturday, May 6, 2017

Hi, I am moving to upstate NY from middle GA after I get married. I will only have a bed, a small sectional, a desk, some shelving units, a TV, and then miscellaneous boxed items and small appliances. We also have two cars we need to transport. Is it possible to have one car towed behind a truck holding our belongings while my husband and I drive the other car? Also how much space do you recommend for our stuff? We've never had to make such a big move before.

MovingPlace Response

Hi Sydney, Our trucks are the big tractor-trailer type, so towing a car behind them is not an option. We can either load the car inside the moving van with the furniture (very expensive), or we can put the car on an auto transport truck and the furniture on a moving van (much cheaper). As for the size of the shipment, with the stuff you have listed above, we would quote about 6 feet of space on the truck. The trucks are 8.5 feet wide and 9 feet tall inside (with 6 feet being the length and being the variable). If you need more space on moving day, we will give you the price per foot and it is available for you to purchase extra space if you need it. Movingplace

Question to MovingPlace

from Karen J. in MI - Thursday, April 27, 2017

Question to MovingPlace

from Deb O. in KS - Thursday, February 2, 2017

If I rent a U-Haul truck looking for a guy to drive it to California

MovingPlace Response

Hi Deb, We provide the moving truck, fuel, driver, and door to door transport. We do not have driving services for Uhaul trucks. There are no companies that offer "driver only" services as it would be impossible to insure a driver in someone else's rental truck. You may be surprised when you check our prices. Because we can share moving trucks, our prices are often lower than rental trucks pricing when you add in fuel, tolls, etc. Movingplace

Question to MovingPlace

from Patrice M. in CA - Wednesday, November 30, 2016

Hello, I am moving from Long Beach, California to Las Vegas, Nevada and only need the truck one way and I am moving December 29th, Can I get a rental truck on such short notice at a reasonable price with unlimited mileage?

MovingPlace Response

Hi Patrice, We are a self-service mover. So we provide the moving truck, fuel, driver, and door to door transport. We bring the truck to your home and leave it for up to 3 business days for you to load. Once it is loaded it is transported to the destination where you have up to 3 business days to unload it. You are charged based on the amount of space that you use on the moving truck. We can get a truck for you on very short notice (usually 48 hours) in just about any location in the US. Our prices are excellent. Please call us at 800-876-6839 or fill out the quote form on this page and we will get an excellent moving quote for you. Movingplace

Question to MovingPlace

from anthony g. in GA - Thursday, September 1, 2016

I need an insured driver for my 22 ft Penske truck rental tomorrow Atlanta to San Rafael CA. Any possibilities on such short notice?

MovingPlace Response

Hi Anthony, We do not provide drivers for rental trucks from other companies. We provide the moving truck, fuel, driver, and door to door transport as part of our services. Many times, we will be less expensive than renting a truck and driving it yourself. Movingplace

Question to MovingPlace

from Dan K. in IL - Thursday, September 1, 2016

Can the moving truck be delivered at 9am and be picked up at 4pm the same day? How long does it take to schedule a move?

MovingPlace Response

Hi Dan, We can do a same day drop off and pick up. There are fees associated with that in some of our busier markets, so make sure that you ask about that when you are booking your move. We like to have at least a week in advance to schedule your long distance move. We can help you on shorter notice, but to insure service, a week is recommended. Movingplace

Question to MovingPlace

from Richard t. in CA - Saturday, June 18, 2016

What is the shortest distance you will go ? I only have to go about 10 miles to my new residence..

MovingPlace Response

Hi Richard, We provide the truck, fuel, driver, and door to door transport. Realistically, our service starts getting competitive in the market when you are moving 250 miles or more.. For local moves, or short distance moves like the one that you are making, you are much better off renting a Uhaul. Movingplace

Question to MovingPlace

from Bora J. in CA - Saturday, May 28, 2016

Hello, This is Bora Jin. I would like to ship my car, furniture and household belongings from 94121 to 77802. 1)Do you carry household items from my place to truck, and vice versa? 2)Do you use separate truck for a car and furnitures? Then, is it possible to ship my car and furniture different date? Thanks

MovingPlace Response

Hi Bora Jin, We can provide transportation for your car and your furniture at separate times and still give you great pricing. We are a transport-only company and do not provide loading and unloading. A lot of our customers hire local movers to load and unload their furniture. We can help you set up the timing of your long distance moving truck rental to coincide with your loaders and unloaders. Thanks! Movingplace

from Chris B. in PA - Sunday, May 22, 2016

What is the total cost of having your company provide us a moving truck rental from our apartment in Bethel Park PA to our new apartment in Mooresville NC on June 21, 2016?

MovingPlace Response

Hi Chris, We actually provide the moving truck, fuel, driver, and door to door transport. We are not a moving truck rental company in the traditional sense. We are a self-service mover. We bring the moving truck out to your house an drop it off. You have up to 3 business days to load it (we can do this over a weekend at no additional charge). We transport it to your new home.. where you unload it. You Load, We Haul, Save Big! Thanks! Movingplace

Question to MovingPlace

from rwdluvbird s. in CA - Tuesday, April 19, 2016

I was planning on renting a 15 foot truck and moving approx 450 miles north. I need someone to drive the truck. I have very little stuff. 2 qn beds, a coffee table, a micro and about a dozen boxes. What would be the best way to do this? I cant find people to load or drive the truck and I am not able to drive three vehicles at once.

MovingPlace Response

We provide self-service moving, meaning we arrange for a moving truck to be brought to your home, you load it, it is then transported to the destination where you unload it. We do not have driver-only services. I don't think there is a company that provides that type of service simply because it would be impossible to insure things.

Question to MovingPlace

from Marissa W. in OK - Tuesday, March 15, 2016

I recently moved from Georgia to Oklahoma but left some my things behind in a storage unit. Do you guys move from storage units? Do we need to be there to do the loading?

MovingPlace Response

HI Marissa, Yes, we can move your stuff in and out of storage units. However, we are a self-service mover, so you would need to provide the loading and unloading of the goods. Most facilities will have some sort of mover or moving labor that will be happy to come and load everything for you. Movingplace

Hello. I am looking to move from Chicago to Pennsylvania in July.

Can you tell me how that would work? I would like to load the truck up with my things and arrive to my destination in time for the truck to arrive. Can you place a call to me for more convenience of questions?

Question to MovingPlace

from David P. in FL - Tuesday, March 19, 2013

I need a long distance moving truck rental from Boca Raton, Fl to Chicago, IL. How much would that cost?

MovingPlace Response

David, When we talk about renting space on a moving truck, we are actually selling you extra space on moving vans at a discount. So we are providing the truck, fuel, driver, and door-to-door transport. All you need to do is load and unload. If you fill out one of our quote request forms at the top of this page, one of our relocation specialists will quickly provide you with a written/emailed estimate. Thanks!

Question to MovingPlace

from Gloria I. in FL - Wednesday, November 7, 2012

I need to rent a moving truck from Miami, FL to Chicago, IL. How much is that going to cost? I am moving about 2 bedrooms of stuff.

MovingPlace Response

Gloria, If you fill out the moving quote form to the right, we will email you pricing for moving truck rentals for your move. We actually provide the moving truck, fuel, driver, furniture blankets, loading ramps, tie-downs, etc... often for prices that are cheaper than renting a moving truck! Each of the moving trucks that we use have moveable walls inside them. We can give you the appropriate amount of space (large or small) for almost any shipment. Movingplace

Question to MovingPlace

from Peter N. in CA - Sunday, August 5, 2012

For your self service moving, how long do we have to load and unload the moving truck?

MovingPlace Response

For self-service moving, you can have anywhere from 4 hours up to 2 days to load the moving truck. The amount of time that you get depends on how much space you order on the moving van. The more space you order, the more time you have to load and unload the moving truck.

Question to MovingPlace

from Lenny T. in FL - Thursday, June 28, 2012

I need the cheapest way to move long distance. I have a bedroom set and 20 boxes, but I also want to move my car on the same moving truck rental. How does that work?

MovingPlace Response

On the you load they drive moving truck rentals, you can load your car a couple of ways. Most of the moving trucks have loading ramps that are designed for loading and unloading automobiles. If the truck does not have the loading ramps for cars, you can call a rollback wrecker to come and put the car on the moving truck for you. They usually are very reasonably priced for that service. Check with your dispatcher to see if they have car loading ramps on the moving truck.

Question to MovingPlace

from Jeremy T. in NJ - Monday, June 25, 2012

Do the moving van rentals for the you pack they drive service cost a lot less than the full service movers, or is move pricing more contingent on where moving companies have a truck available at the time? I need to save as much money as possible on my move.

MovingPlace Response

Yes, the you pack they drive service is going to be the most economical moving service that is available. Moving truck availability does have a lot to do with last minute move pricing, but by loading and unloading your own furniture, you are taking a huge expense out of the cost of your move.

Question to MovingPlace

from Kelly M. in FL - Tuesday, June 5, 2012

I need to get pricing for a self move. How do I get that kind of pricing from your site? Does the quote form work for self moves?

MovingPlace Response

Yes, the quote form works for both self moves and for full service moves. If you would like a self move quote, make sure that you indicate "self" in the coupon code field of the form.

Question to MovingPlace

from Bob T. in CA - Saturday, June 2, 2012

I want to rent space on a moving van. How long do I have to load the truck once it gets to my home? I am moving from California to Virginia. How long will it take the truck to arrive? How much will this cost?

MovingPlace Response

Renting space on a moving van is one of the most economical ways to move. Movers almost always have some open space on moving vans going cross-country. If you have some flexibility with your loading and don't mind putting in a little elbow grease to do a Uload They Drive type move, you can very often rent space on a moving van for pennies on the dollar. We have a few different movers that offer this type of service. If you want You Load They drive service, put "You Load They Drive" in the coupon code on the quote form and you will be contacted by the movers offering that service. Movingplace

Question to MovingPlace

from Debbie M. in FL - Friday, June 1, 2012

I am looking at a moving truck rental option where I do not have to drive. I don't mind loading and unloading. Can I get a moving quote for that kind of service from your site?

MovingPlace Response

Yes. We have several moving truck rental companies that provide the "you load they drive" service. If you fill out our online moving quote form, they will email you excellent prices for both a full service move and a you load they drive move. You may be surprised to find out that on your smaller shipments, the full service moving price is as good or better than the self-service moving. Movingplace

Question to MovingPlace

from Jennifer M. in FL - Thursday, May 31, 2012

I am looking for a moving truck rental. I don't want to drive. Do you guys provide moving quotes for that?

MovingPlace Response

Yes, we have several moving truck rental companies that would love to give you a moving quote. You migh also be surprised with some of our full-service movers as well. If you have a small shipment, they will often fill out their larger orders and make you a great deal on moving.
