This is a live opportunity for you to add comments and/or ask questions about the array of offerings for moving truck services. We find that customers often have similar questions or experiences. That makes this section of our website packed with good information for those that are looking to move or that are already using full service movers or self service movers. If you are already a moving company customer or have received a one way moving quote, it would be helpful if you would add your shipment/or quote number to your question/comment.

Customer Questions

Hi Dee,We don’t put the rates for our long distance moving trucks on the forum because they change with seasonality, fuel prices, etc. Please fill out our quote form or give us a call at 800-876-6839 and we will get a price for you in about 5 minutes. Thanks!

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.

Hi Lynn,We can certainly get a moving truck for you for this long distance move. If you will fill out the quote form at the top of this page, we will quickly email and text you rates for your move.

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.

Hi Irene,We provide door to door transport with moving trucks only. We do not have services to move other peoples’ 40 foot containers. Sorry!

Hi Joe,We are a long distance moving truck provider. We can move you state to state and we have some storage options when moving state to state, but we do not have any local storage options available at this time.

Hi Gary,We have 28 and 53ft trucks available, however, we also break those down into smaller compartments so we can handle just about any sized shipment. Storage is available. Costs vary depending on location and length of time needed. Please call our office at 800-876-6839 and we can work out some options for you.

Hi Jaylee,We do not currently have service to Alaska.

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.

Hi TL. 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.

Hi Karen, only handles long distance moves at this time.

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.

Hi Jennifer,It will take approximately 4 days for the transit from San Antonio to Chicago.

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.

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.

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!

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!

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.

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.

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.
