Moving long distance can be stressful.  Driving hundreds or even thousands of miles can make it even worse.  So why not let us move your car and your furniture? 

MovingPlace has a number of options when moving your car and furniture.  We can have one of our professional car transport companies move your car quickly and efficiently for a great price, or, if you have a large amount of furniture to move, we can order a full sized moving van and ship your car and furniture on the truck.

When filling out the quote form, make sure to include the make and model of the car that you would like to move.

Question to MovingPlace

from Joette C. in TX - Saturday, April 29, 2017

How quickly would I receive my car and furniture?

MovingPlace Response

Hi Joette, The transit time for moving your furniture and car will vary based on how far you are moving. A general rule of thumb is that the moving trucks will travel 400 miles per day on average. When you book your move, we will not only schedule the pickup, but also the delivery! We take the guesswork out of moving. Movingplace

Question to MovingPlace

from DON T. in CA - Thursday, April 27, 2017

I have read most of the questions. I understand that when you ship cars you can not have anything in them. Does that go for two cars shipped in closed transporters? I have tools to take for my old classic car and want to put them inside the car. thanks, Don

MovingPlace Response

Hi Don, That goes for enclosed as well. There are liability issues with us shipping anything inside the cars. This is pretty much a universal rule in the industry that cars must be shipped empty. We recommend boxing your tools and sending them UPS Ground freight. That is the cheapest way to send boxes. Shipping parcels with UPS is expensive, but you can get good pricing from them on regular-sized boxes being shipped ground freight. It is a different system than the high-priced parcel service.

Question to MovingPlace

from margaret r. in NY - Tuesday, April 11, 2017

I am moving from Scarsdale NY to Denver Colorado.. I have a jeep, clothes, hockey bag and golf clubs. No furniture..Best way to ship items?

MovingPlace Response

Hi Margaret, We would suggest moving the car on one of our auto transporters (the big trucks that haul 7 or 8 cars at a time) and then shipping your smaller items via UPS... If you have furniture to move, we would be the right choice and could provide some great pricing to ship your car and furniture, but with the small stuff, UPS is the way to go. Movingplace

from Sam J. in TX - Monday, March 27, 2017

Hi, I am moving from texas to california, I have to move my car small honda and my personal belongings. Will you be able to help and what will be the price? Thanks

MovingPlace Response

Hi Sam, Yes we can move your car and furniture. As we have mentioned in other posts, the best way to do this kind of move is to put all of your personal household items in a moving van and ship the car on one of our auto transporters ( the big moving trucks that haul 7 or 8 cars at a time). We can arrange for this to all happen at basically the same time and still save you a lot of money. For a quote, please fill out the quote form on this page or give us a call at 800-876-6839.

Question to MovingPlace

from Morgan P. in MD - Tuesday, March 21, 2017

I'm moving a Acura XLS and 1 bedroom amount of belongings from MD to CA. Will it be possible to load my belongings in my car when it is transported?

MovingPlace Response

Hi Morgan, It is industry-standard for cars to be empty when they are being shipped. Your furniture and household items can go inside the moving van, but nothing can be inside the car. Movingplace

Question to MovingPlace

from Avis G. in CO - Tuesday, March 21, 2017

I need to move approximately 380 cubic feet of household goods from Longmont Colorado to Clearwater Florida. I also have a car to be towed. It is a 2007 Toyota Corolla. Do you do this? If not, what would it cost for the goods only?

MovingPlace Response

Hi Avis, We are one of the only places that can move your car and your furniture. We would not actually tow your car behind the moving van. Instead, we would put it on one of the big auto transporter trucks (the kind that haul 7 or 8 cars at a time). We could arrange for the pick up and delivery of your household goods to happen at approximately the same time. Movingplace

Question to MovingPlace

from anstin a. in PA - Sunday, February 26, 2017

I will be moving from Central PA (Danville) to Seattle on April 2nd half 2017. Mine is a 2 room apartment and have one SUV. Do you provide truck and driver?.

MovingPlace Response

Yes Anstin, We provide the moving truck, fuel, driver, and door to door transportation. For a move like yours where you are moving a car and your furniture, we will put the car on an auto transporter and the household goods will go on a moving van. That is the most inexpensive and efficient way to handle it. We can have everything picked up and delivered at about the same time. Movingplace

Question to MovingPlace

from Tammy M. in FL - Friday, February 10, 2017

I want to move a studio apartment as well as a 1994 gmc jimmy truck together. Is this possible and what issues the approx. fee?

MovingPlace Response

Hi Tammy, We can move your car and furniture together on the same truck, however, you would need to rent the entire tractor-trailer to do that. It financially only works if you have a large household to move at the same time. The most economical way to handle a small shipment and a car is to put the household on our moving truck and the car on an auto transporter. We can make this happen in basically the same time frame, so there should not be an inconvenience... and you will save a whole lot of money on you overall move. Movingplace

from Dawn R. in FL - Thursday, February 02, 2017

Hello:) I'm moving from ft Lauderdale Florida to Portland Oregon 8/2017 . I need to ship my car and items equallvilent to a studio apartment. Do you offer any car and home moving bundle options??

MovingPlace Response

Hi Dawn, When moving your car and furniture, we will give you great pricing for both. We give you the best prices right up front, so there is no room to lower them by bundling them together. Movingplace

Question to MovingPlace

from Sasha W. in GA - Tuesday, January 31, 2017

i would like to move my car which is a 2002 Buick Park Avenue and my belongings which are equivalent to a 1bdrm apt. I want to know is it possible to transport my car and belongings at the same time together. Im moving from Riverdale Ga to Dowagiac MI

MovingPlace Response

Hi Sasha, We can move your car and furniture at the same time, but for a shipment as small as yours, it would not be on the same moving truck. We would ship your car on an auto transporter (the big trucks that hold 7 or 8 cars at a time) and your household goods on a moving van. Movingplace

Question to MovingPlace

from Bryanna S. in OH - Tuesday, January 03, 2017

Um I won't be moving for a while but I like knowing things ahead of time. How much would it cost to move one small sedan, and one room worth of furniture from Ohio to California?

MovingPlace Response

Hi Bryanna, It usually takes about 6 days to move your car and furniture from Ohio to California. If we ship the car on an auto transporter (one of the big moving trucks that carries 7 or 8 cars at a time), it might arrive in as little as 5 days. Please let call our offices at 800-876-6839 and we can check to see scheduling for the exact towns/cities that you are moving from and to. Movingplace

MovingPlace Response

Hi Alex, We can certainly help you. Long distance, cross country moving is our specialty.. as is moving cars and furniture. We can get you pricing for shipping the household goods on a moving van and the car on an auto transporter., Or, if you have a whole house to move, we can price everything to go on full 53 foot moving truck.

Question to MovingPlace

from Patty M. in OH - Wednesday, November 23, 2016

My son has to move back home from Boise ID to Ohio all his belongings (and a couple of small pieces of furniture) can fit in the back of his car, could you move the car loaded with hi person stuff He will be moving January or feb 2017

MovingPlace Response

Hi Patty, Cars must be empty when they are moved. We can get pricing for a small shipment of household items and price the car separately to get you the best bang for your buck. Movingplace

Question to MovingPlace

from Octavia J. in FL - Thursday, November 17, 2016

From my understanding a car needs to be completely empty for transport and if you need to move a car and other things get the tractor trailer, but my car is full of clothes and shoes no furniture. How can I get my car and personal items like my clothes and shoes home? I'm not moving any furniture.

MovingPlace Response

If you do not have any furniture and need to ship your car, you will need to box up the stuff in the car and send it via UPS or the USPS. Whenever a car is shipped on an auto transporter, the car must be empty, both for security and safety purposes. Movingplace

Question to MovingPlace

from breanna s. in FL - Sunday, October 30, 2016

I will be moving from jacksonville fl to san diego in a few months. I was wondering if you had anything available to ship home furniture as well as a vehicle in the same trip. Also a round about fee you charge for this type of move.

MovingPlace Response

Hi Breanna, Moving your car and furniture on the same moving van only works if you rent and entire tractor trailer and load everything onto the same truck. If you have a LOT of furniture and household items, this is definitely the way to go. We find, however, that a lot of customers only need a small amount of space on a moving van. If that is your case, it is much cheaper for us to move the furniture on a moving van and the car on an auto transporter. Please give us a call at 800-876-6839 and we can get pricing both ways for you. Movingplace

Question to MovingPlace

from Sharon F. in OH - Friday, October 28, 2016

I have a few furniture items I need moved to Florida. I also want to move my car with furniture. Do you have anything smaller than a 53 ft trailer you can use

MovingPlace Response

Yes we do. We have moving trucks available that are 28ft long, 8.5ft wide, and 9ft tall (interior dimensions). We break those trucks down into smaller compartments using movable walls. If we use the smaller trucks, then your car would need to go on a separate auto transporter that we would provide. We can coordinate with you to have all of your stuff arrive at about the same time. Please give us a call and we can go over all of the details with you and get you pricing for the different options. Movingplace

Question to MovingPlace

from janet h. in PA - Tuesday, October 25, 2016

How long will it take to move a car furniture from downingtown, pa to Sedona, AZ? I will need them moved at the same time and delivered at the same time. Thanks.

MovingPlace Response

Hi Janet, When moving your car and furniture, there are a couple of things to consider when figuring out how to get them to arrive at the same time. Generally speaking, the cars are shipped on auto transporters and will arrive a couple of days faster than the moving vans. The only way to ship everything on the same day and have it arrive on the same day is to rent a full 53ft moving van and load everything onto one truck. We can certainly help you with this, but unless you have a large load of household goods to fill out the space, you will be wasting money on renting the whole truck. We can price this both ways for you. Please just indicate that in the comments section when you fill out the quote form at the top of this page. Movingplace

Can I get my quotes broken down -- one rate for the car delivery and another for the furniture -- and one with them both together transporting all from Indianapolis Indiana to Las Vegas Nevada

MovingPlace Response

Hi Felicia, Yes, when you fill out our quote form and put the make and model of your car in the comments section, we will automatically send you pricing for the car and furniture as well as a breakdown of options for your move. Thanks! Movingplace

Question to MovingPlace

from Alex V. in GA - Friday, September 23, 2016

Do you offer car and furniture shipping all in one?

MovingPlace Response

Hi Alex, Yes. If you want to ship your car and furniture on the same truck, you would need to order a full 53ft tractor trailer. If you have a large household move, this makes the most sense financially. If you only have a small amount of furniture to move, the best pricing by far is to ship the car on an auto transporter and the furniture on a moving truck. Movingplace

Question to MovingPlace

from Dominic C. in CA - Sunday, September 18, 2016

How much would it cost to move three cars and our furniture... One Pontiac solstice 2008 another party at solstice 2007 and 2004 Malibu classic Chevy and also approximately three bedroom house , basically one twin bed 2 queen size beds and very little furniture and miscellaneous boxes

MovingPlace Response

Hi Dominic, There are a couple of ways to move your cars and furniture. You can either ship your furniture on a moving van and then have us move your cars on an auto transport, or you can rent a full 53ft moving van and load everything into one truck. It would probably be best to call us and let us price the different options for your. Our phone number is 800-876-6839. Thanks! Movingplace

Question to MovingPlace

from Olivia T. in GA - Saturday, September 10, 2016

How long will it take to move a car and a truck with furniture from Atlanta, GA to Salt Lake City, UT? I will need them moved at the same time and delivered at the same time. Thanks.

MovingPlace Response

Hi Olivia, Transit time to Salt Lake City is approximately 6 days. If you want to have your car and furniture picked up and delivered at the same time, they would need to go on the same moving van. This is the most expensive way to ship your car. I would recommend checking our option of moving the household on the moving truck and the car on an auto transporter. The car will actually get there a little quicker than the household goods. We would be happy to quote you prices both ways so that you can decide if it is worth the extra money. :-) Movingplace

Question to MovingPlace

from Joshua S. in OR - Monday, August 29, 2016

How much would it cost to pick up my car and furniture from Illinois and transport it to Oregon?

MovingPlace Response

Hi Joshua, We don't put pricing up on the forum as rates change periodically. We can certainly help you move your car and furniture from Illinois to Oregon. I see that you already filled out our quote form. When filling out the quote form, please make sure to put the make and model of the car being shipped into the comments section so that we can get the correct pricing for it. Movingplace

Question to MovingPlace

from Carol T. in NJ - Monday, August 08, 2016

We are moving from South Plainfield New Jersey to Tampa Florida We have an SUV ,,,2 seat convertible ,,and a Jerp wrangler We also have two wave runners I was wondering if we could fill the cars up with boxes We also need a truck to move one king size bedroom set a small fireplace A full size mattress and a king size mattress and a lot of bins filled with items from our home Could you please give me a quote Thank You

MovingPlace Response

HI Carol, There are a couple of way to move your car and furniture as well as your wave runners. I would put the wave runners inside a moving van along with your furniture and boxes, and then ship the cars one of our auto transporters. Loading the cars into the moving van would not make financial sense as the moving vans are much more expensive than the auto transport. The cars have to be empty when you move them, but if you are already getting a moving van for the furniture and wave runners, you can just put the boxes inside with the other items. Thanks! Movingplace

Question to MovingPlace

from Oliver S. in MD - Thursday, July 28, 2016

Hi, I'm an active duty military personnel and recently PCS from CA to MD. I need to move about 1 bedroom of furniture and my car (Hyundai Sonata). I'm currently residing in MD per my duty, could my family back in CA sign or arrange the shipping on my behalf. Additionally, please send me a quote. The dates I would like to ship are between August 1 to 20. Thank you.

MovingPlace Response

Yes Oliver, we can move your car and furniture from CA to MD. If you need weight tickets for military reimbursement, we can arrange for that as well. To have someone else sign for and load your goods in CA, you would just need to give us a release with them named as your designee for that move. If you give us a call at 800-876-6839, we can get all of the details worked out. Thanks! Movingplace

Question to MovingPlace

from Tari S. in OH - Saturday, July 23, 2016

My daughter is planning to move back to Shaker Heights, OH (Cleveland) from Torrance, CA She has a few pieces of furniture (Chair and ottoman, bookshelf) and about 10 boxes - books, miscellaneous, clothes. She also has a 2007 Toyota Yaris Manual shift that she would like to ship as well. How can this be done in the least expensive manner, with the least amount of problems?! What kind of pricing would this entail? Thanks. Tari

MovingPlace Response

Hi Tari, We get this question a lot. The best way to move a small amount of furniture and a car is to split the shipment. We should put the household items on a moving van and then ship the car on an auto transporter. We can arrange for all of this to happen about the same time and it is the safest way to ship everything. Movingplace

Can I move 1bedroom,am. Sofa 1chair,2flat screens extra q mattress set and personal boxes plus have my Honda Fit towed behind moving van? If so I need a quote. From oh to Clearwater fl

MovingPlace Response

Hi Cassandra, Kind of... We can move your car and furniture, but we do not tow the cars behind the moving vans. The cars are normally shipped on the big auto transporters (trucks that you see driving around with 8 or 9 cars loaded on them). The household goods would go on a separate moving van. If you would like a quote, you can either fill out the form on this page (we move people, we won't sell your information) or you can give us a call at 800-876-6839. Thanks! Movingplace

I have 3 cars (Nissan altima, buick lesabre, ford crown victoria) a king size bed, clothes and other furniture items such as mirrors decorations, small kitchen appliances, 3 flat screen tvs, dresser and a few other small items. Would it be cheaper to do the car transporter for the cars and a moving van?

MovingPlace Response

It depends on where you are moving from and to. We can certainly price it both ways for you and see which option best fits your needs and your budget. For this type of move, it would probably be best to call in and let us talk out the details and options for moving your cars and furniture. Movingplace

Hi, i am moving my CRV from Tennesse to New Jersey. Can i load my car with less weight stuff like comforter and pillows?

Question to MovingPlace

from Christopher H. in CA - Tuesday, June 28, 2016

I'm going to be moving from San Diego to lakeland Florida, with one car and a one bedroom apartment of furniture without any major appliances, and not heavily furnished. Is it possible to have the car and household goods shipped together at all? If so, or even if separately, is there any estimate in a long move like so?

MovingPlace Response

Hi Christopher, We can ship your car and furniture at the same time. If you would like them to be shipped on the same moving truck, you would need to rent the entire moving van. With just a one bedroom apartment of furniture like you have listed above, this would not be economical at all. If you give us a call at 800-876-6839, we can price it both ways for you so that you can decide if you think it is worth the extra money to ship your car and furniture on the same truck. Movingplace

Question to MovingPlace

from deyanna l. in WA - Sunday, June 12, 2016

Hi, I have a friend that is going to be moving from Seattle, WA to Fort Lauderdale, FL. He is trying to take everything down at once. He has a 2008 Mustang car to move along with furniture consisting of a 4pc bedroom set, 3 person dining table, 2 TV's, and a sectional. Is this all possible to get on one moving truck, if so how much would that be?

MovingPlace Response

Hi Deyanna, Yes you can move your car and furniture on the same moving truck, but the only way to do that is to rent the entire giant moving van. This works if you have a lot more furniture to move than you have listed above. Our recommendation is to let us split the shipment for you, moving the car on an auto transporter and the furniture on a moving van. They will pick up and deliver at basically the same time and save you a whole lot of money doing it that way. Movingplace

I have a 2000 Ford Explorer, queen size bed, love seat, dining set and my clothes to be transported from Florida to Ohio. Can you tell me the most economic way to to do this please?

MovingPlace Response

Hi J, The most economical way to move your SUV and furniture would be to split the shipment in two. It will be much cheaper to put your SUV on an auto transporter and then put your household goods onto one of the moving trucks that we provide. We can arrange to have your car and furniture picked up and delivered at approximately the same time, so it will be convenient and inexpensive! Movingplace

I am moving from cambridge MA to irvine CA. I have a 3 bedroom house and my 2013 RAM. I would know how much would it take and how much is the estimate price.

MovingPlace Response

Depending on how large your 3 bedroom house is (and how heavily furnished) will determine whether or not we should move your car and furniture on the same moving truck or whether we should put the furniture on the moving truck and the car on an auto transport. Please call our office at 800-876-6839 and we can discuss options. Movingplace

Question to MovingPlace

from Rakesh M. in IL - Friday, May 20, 2016

Hi, I need to move a car (Mustang 2012), a queen bed, a TV, two small tables and some small boxes from Bloomington IL (61704) to Hartford CT (06183). I am thinking of moving all these through same transport. Can you please suggest what would be the better way?

MovingPlace Response

Hi Rakesh, If you want to move your car and furniture on the same moving truck, you have to rent the entire moving van to make it work. With smaller shipments like yours, we recommend using our moving truck for the furniture and household items, and then letting us set up an auto transporter to haul your car. We can have them pick up and drop off at approximately the same time, so it will not be any less convenient, but it will be a lot less expensive. Movingplace

from Kelly B. in NY - Thursday, May 12, 2016

I would like a quote to move my furniture and 2012 chevy cruze car from NY to Texas. I am not moving any appliances. I have a few furniture pieces - desk, bookcases stuff like that. No living room furniture or dining table. You can reach me at *******(redacted for security)@aol.com Thank you, Ms. Kelly B--------

MovingPlace Response

Hi Kelly, The best way (cheapest) to move your car and furniture is going to be to put your car on an auto transporter and you household items on a moving truck. If you put the furniture and car on the same moving van, you have to rent an entire 53ft tractor trailer and that will not make financial sense for your move. I see that you filled out our moving quote request form. One of our relocation specialists will be reaching out to help you with some rates. Thanks! Movingplace

Question to MovingPlace

from Daniel P. in CA - Tuesday, May 03, 2016

Hi, I'm looking to move the first weekend of June. I have a chrysler 300 car and a 2 BR apartment. One king and queen bed. One small dresser. Couch with chase, loveseat. Small dining room table, L shaped desk and cabinet. Then some boxes/tubs on top of that. 1 person apartment. I'll be moving from 95008 bay area to 48183 South of Detroit. I'm currently looking at renting a truck and towing my car, but if it around the same price i'd rather just ship and fly home, or ship my stuff and drive just the car. What do you suggest?

MovingPlace Response

Hi Daniel, We should definitely get prices for moving your car and furniture. I would suggest that you ship the furniture on a moving truck and the car on an auto transporter. We can arrange for those to be picked up and delivered at about the same time. That will be the most cost efficient way to to move your stuff. I have heard that rental trucks out of California are ridiculously expensive. We might be able to provide you with a good alternative to that rental truck. Movingplace

MovingPlace Response

Hi Danielle, When moving your car, it must be empty for safety and security reasons. If you don't have much stuff to ship, we recommend going to the UPS store and shipping it. You will find that to be the most inexpensive way to do it. We will be happy to help you move your car, but it must be empty. Thanks! Movingplace

Hello, My daughter is moving from Lynn, MA (zip 01904) to Madison, Wisconsin (zip 53719) for a new job that is slated to begin on 6/6/16. We plan to leave Boston on 5/27.

Could you give me a guesstimate on cost, and when the car and furniture,etc. would need to leave boston to arrive either on the 28th, 29th, or 30th of May? Thanks

MovingPlace Response

Hi Jane, This is exactly the type of move that we do best. We can move your daughter's car and furniture. I would not recommend moving the car and furniture on the same truck in this instance because you would need to rent the whole moving van to do this, and it would not be economical to do so. I see that you have already filled out one of our quote forms to get an estimate. One of our relocation specialists will email you shortly with prices for your move (if they have not already done so). Thanks! Movingplace

Question to MovingPlace

from Sig G. in PA - Thursday, April 14, 2016

I am downsizing from a 4 bed house and moving across country (Philly to Newport Beach). I most likely may only move 2 beds rooms, 2 sofas, 2 chairs and a small amount (half a pickup truck load) of household items. I also want to move a car. It would be great for it all to arrive at the same time but looking for ideas. Thanks.

MovingPlace Response

Hi Sig, We can certainly help you. As I mentioned on a previous blog, it is probably best to ship the car and furniture separately to minimize expense. You are teetering right on the edge of it making sense to rent the entire moving van and put everything on the same truck. If you will give us a call at 800-876-6839, we will give you pricing both ways - with the car and furniture on the same moving van and with the car going on an auto transporter (at the same time, but on different trucks).

from Sandra W. in CA - Thursday, April 14, 2016

I am moving my 2 bedroom household from Sacramento, CA to Kalamazoo, MI, I have furniture, a car, and 6 large in house trees. Whats the best way to move all this?

MovingPlace Response

If you only have a small amount of furniture to move along with a car, it makes the most financial sense to split the shipment. By that we mean moving the car on and auto transporter and then moving the furniture on a moving truck. We can coordinate both of those things to happen at the same time so you are not inconvenienced. You would only want to move the car and furniture on the same moving van if you have enough furniture and household items to warrant renting an entire tractor-trailer and putting everything in one truck.

How much would it cost to move 2 cars a motorcycle and living room and a dining room table and miscellaneous bedroom furniture and items such as clothing and tvs

MovingPlace Response

Hi Tara, When you have multiple cars and furniture to move, we should price it two ways. First, we should look at moving your car and furniture on the same moving van. Second, we should look at shipping the furniture on a moving truck and the cars on an auto transporter. Depending on where you are moving from and to will dictate which option will be cheapest.

MovingPlace Response

Hi Renate, This would be a good move for a 53ft moving van. We can move your cars and furniture on the same truck when we you order one of those. The big vans also come with pads, straps, and a dolly. Please give us a call or fill out our online quote form and we will get you pricing asap.

Question to MovingPlace

from chelsea s. in WA - Friday, March 25, 2016

Hi Moving Place, I am moving from Washington state to South Carolina and would like a quote on my move. I would like to move my car which is a 4 door sedan as well as my bed frame, mattress, box spring, dresser, some other small furniture and a few boxes. Is this possible to move all together? How much will this is all cost me? Thanks

MovingPlace Response

Hi Chelsea, We get this question a lot. When moving your car and furniture, the deciding factor is how large the household shipment is. If there is a smaller shipment of household goods, it is more economical to move the furniture on one moving truck and the car on an auto transporter. To move your car and furniture on the same truck, you really need to buy the entire moving van. This makes perfect sense with a big order of household goods, but with a small order like yours, this would be too much space. Movingplace

from Sam R. in TX - Wednesday, March 16, 2016

My daughter is moving back to houston Texas from university of Virginia. Could u give me an estimate on moving her car and furniture. Would it be better to move her car on the same moving van with her furniture or not?

MovingPlace Response

Hi Sam, When you are only moving an apartment and a car, it is much cheaper for us to put the car on an auto transporter and put the furniture on the moving truck. The only time it makes economic sense to put the car and furniture on the same moving van is if you have a whole lot of furniture to move and are going to take the entire tractor trailer. Then you get a big discount on using the entire truck for your move. Movingplace

I'm moving from St.Louis to Arizona in about 3 months. About how much it will be moving my car and about 15 boxes, but no furniture.? How will the boxes be ship? Will it be different than my car?

MovingPlace Response

HI Haylie, We get this question a lot. If all you are moving is boxes, the best option is to ship the boxes via UPS ground and then let us move the car. If you want to move your car and furniture on the same moving truck, you have to order the entire moving truck and this is oftentimes not cost effective. We have some great options where we can move your furniture on one truck and your car on an auto transporter, at the same time, and save you a lot of money. Please give us a call at 800-876-6839 and we will give you some options for your move. Movingplace

Question to MovingPlace

from Jenna P. in CA - Thursday, February 25, 2016

Hello, I will be moving from San Diego, CA to Detroit, MI in early March. I was wondering if I could get a quote to move my car (it's a Chevrolet Trailblazer year 2004 or 2005). Also, does the car have to be empty to transport or could I have some moving boxes in there? I just have some big boxes that I'll need to take with me, so I would rather keep my boxes in the car than have to ship them separately. I'll be moving into my first apartment so I basically just have some boxes with clothes and some kitchen items.

MovingPlace Response

Hi Jenna, We get this question a lot. For safety and security, the car must be empty when it is transported. If you just have boxes and no furniture to move, we recommend shipping boxes at the UPS store. If you have a house or apartment of furniture to ship as well as a car, we have great options for you. But, with just boxes, shipping UPS ground is going to be the fastest and cheapest way to do it. Movingplace

Hi Joya, When moving 2 cars and furniture, we can actually give you a quote for a full 53ft moving van. It is a little more expensive, but everything can ride on the same truck. It is also direct service, meaning that nothing else is loaded on the truck and the driver that picks it up is the driver that delivers. We will email the quote to you shortly. Movingplace

Hi V, We can move your cars and furniture on the same truck, or we can ship the furniture on a moving van and put the cars on an auto transport.

MovingPlace Response

Hi Jim, Your best (cheapest) option would be to ship the boxes via UPS and let us ship your car, motorcycle, and pick up. To order a tractor trailer to move everything at the same time will double your cost. If you break them up, you will pay a lot less money and everything will still arrive at about the same time (which is the reason that you ship everything on the same truck in the first place!).

MovingPlace Response

Hi Briana, With a house that large and a car to move, we might want to look at moving your car and furniture on the same moving van. We can rent you exclusive use of a 53ft tractor trailer that is fully equipped with moving equipment for your use. Moving everything on the same truck is the cheapest way to do it when you are have enough to warrant renting the entire moving van. If you only have a 1 bedroom apartment or a smaller shipment, you should split the move and send the furniture on one truck and the car on an auto transporter. Movingplace

I'm moving from Seattle, WA to Toronto, ON withing the next few weeks. I have a Toyota 4Runner and a few boxes that would completely fit in the back of the truck. Can I ship my items right in the truck? It will be kitchenware mainly. If you cannot ship to Canada or not to canada with items in the vehicle, I do have friends in Buffalo, NY where the vehicle can be shipped though to Toronto is my preference.

MovingPlace Response

Hi Dawn, When moving your car and furniture, the only way to put it all on the same moving truck is to use a full 53ft tractor trailer. When you are moving a lot of stuff, that is a great option. When you only have a small amount, it is best to split the shipment into a household goods shipment on a moving truck and a car shipment on an auto transporter. Any vehicle shipped on an auto transporter must be completely empty (for both safety and liability concerns). If you have only enough stuff to fit in your 4Runner, we recommend shipping that stuff UPS or USPS ground. That will be your cheapest option. We could then move your car for a great price.

Hi Susan, When moving a car and furniture on the same moving truck, the furniture goes in first at the front of the moving van. A bulkhead wall is put up to secure those goods in the trailer to keep them from moving around. The car goes on the back end of the moving van. It is loaded with a rollback wrecker and then the axles are secured using chains/straps that hook into the walls of the truck at floor level. Movingplace

Yes Bartev, We can accommodate moving the car and furniture on the same moving truck, however, you have to order the entire moving van to do so (for liability purposes).

Hello, If I am moving from NJ to WA, would the studio apartment be a good size for me? I need to move a futon a couple boxes a three suitcases, two book cases, possibly a bed set and my car. Thank you.

MovingPlace Response

Hi Jane, All of the moving trucks are approximately 8ft wide and 9ft tall. When someone selects "Studio" on our quote form, we will send them a price for 4ft of length on a truck with the above dimensions. This would be an appropriate size selection for the items that you have listed. When filling out the quote form, if you want to move your car and furniture, please put the make and model of the car in the comments section and we will price that for you as well. Movingplace

Hi, I am looking to move a small 1 bedroom apartment and a car. Is there some kind of bundle I can do with this company?

MovingPlace Response

Hi Sonia, Yes, we can move your car and furniture. There are a couple of options and ways to save money. If you ship the car separately from the furniture, we can get you some nice discounts by putting your car on a car transporter (the big trucks that carry 8 or 9 cars at a time). Please give us a call to discuss options as there are too many to list here. Movingplace

Question to MovingPlace

from Jayson D. in KS - Wednesday, October 08, 2014

I am trying to ship two cars and household items and furnitures. Is it possible to ship at one shipping truck?

MovingPlace Response

Hi Jayson, Yes, you can ship two cars and household items on on truck. In order to do that, you will need to rent an entire 53ft moving van.

Either way, we can provide you an economical way to move your cars and furniture. Movingplace

Question to MovingPlace

from Savita M. in AR - Monday, September 22, 2014

Hello, I need to move a car and furniture to Corvallis, Oregon from Arkansas. Can I move it on the same truck? Please give me a quote Thanks

MovingPlace Response

Hi Savita, We get this question a lot. Yes, you can move your car and furniture on the same truck. The only caveat to that is that you have to rent the entire moving van to do so. If you have a small shipment of furniture, it makes a lot more financial sense to have us ship the car on a car transporter and then ship the household goods on a moving van. We will be happy to price the move for you both way to help you make the best financial and logistical decision for your move. Moving Place Web Team

Question to MovingPlace

from Melanie C. in CA - Wednesday, September 10, 2014

do you have a vehicle/trailer, that I can load a small car and a sm house of furniture and have it moved together?

MovingPlace Response

Hi Melanie, If you want to ship your car and furniture on the same moving van, the only option is to rent a full-sized tractor trailer. If you have a large home, that is the best financial option. For a small amount of furniture, the most inexpensive way to ship that and a car is to split the shipment and send the car on an auto transporter (the big trucks that carry 8 or 9 vehicles at a time) and the furniture on a smaller moving van. We can price this both ways for you to compare and decide what is best for your situation. Please give us a call at 800-876-6839 and we would be happy to help. Movingplace

MovingPlace Response

Hi Kumar, We can help you with moving your car and furniture. Most of the time, it makes the most sense to ship the car on a car transporter (those big moving trucks that hold 8 or 9 cars) and have the furniture shipped on the moving van. If you would please fill out the quote form at the top of this page, we will quickly email you a quote. Thanks! MovingPlace

Question to MovingPlace

We only move cars in connection with a household move. If you are doing both, we can get discounts for you that make it worthwhile for the consumer. If you are only moving a car, it is best to contact a car carrier directly.

MovingPlace Response

Hi Sabina, Please see the last question that we answered in the forum. Yes, we can ship your car and furniture at the same time.

Question to MovingPlace

from Summer C. in FL - Wednesday, July 11, 2012

I have a car that I want to move on the same moving truck as my furniture. It is a Nissan Maxima. how does that work?

MovingPlace Response

Most of the moving trucks have loading ramps that are designed to hold cars. Moving your car on the same truck with your furniture is as easy as driving it up the car ramps into the truck. If your car does not have good clearance, or if it is too heavy for the ramps, you can have a rollback wrecker come and load and unload the car for you. Many people opt to do this for safety reasons also. The cost of the wrecker is usually about $75 and is not included in the cost of your move.

Question to MovingPlace

from Lisa T. in FL - Wednesday, May 23, 2012

I am looking at renting a truck from FL to OH, but I don't want to pull my car behind the rental truck. What options do you have?

MovingPlace Response

You might want to look into self-service moving. Many of those companies will allow you to ship you car with your furniture. You load your stuff onto the moving van and then your car gets shipped on the same moving truck in a separate compartment.
