Question to MovingPlace

from Andrea L. in KY - Tuesday, March 21, 2017

Hi- some truck rentals have options on packing/loading/unloading services, not with them but recommendations on people to use. Do you have any partnerships?

MovingPlace Response

Hi Andrea, There are a couple of really good loading and unloading services that will help with our moving trucks. We recommend HireAHelper.com. They have coverage in most major cities and a lot of our customers have had good results using them to load/unload our moving vans. Movingplace

Question to MovingPlace

from Daren R. in NY - Thursday, March 10, 2016

How much would it be to move a piano from Eastchester, NY to the Bronx? Please let me know as soon as possible. Thank you.

MovingPlace Response

Hi Daren, We are a self-service mover. We bring the moving truck out to your home. You load it. We transport it to the destination where you unload it. We also are a state to state mover only. We recommend that you call a local mover in your area that specializes in small moves like this. Thanks! Movingplace

Question to MovingPlace

Is it possible to have a pod delivered in one state for item pick up then shipped to another state for more items before continuing on to final destination state?

MovingPlace Response

We actually use moving trucks instead of pods. And yes, we only perform moves from state to state, so you have reached the right place! Please fill out the quote form and we will email over pricing for your move. Movingplace

Question to MovingPlace

from Richard K. in IL - Thursday, January 15, 2015

We used the MovingPlace to transport our household goods from Tampa, Florida to a suburb of Chicago. We were very pleased with the service and they performed exactly as promised. Rachel and Chris were very helpful and answered my calls and emails promptly before, during and after the move. They were very knowledgeable, accurate and very responsive. We contracted for a total of 36 feet on two trailers. The trailers were dropped off, picked up, delivered to Illinois and once empty, picked up on the dates and within the timeframe they told us up-front. We relied on previous experience from a prior move, an online, detailed space estimator and quotes from 2 local movers regarding how much space we required and that’s how it turned out. There is no value in underestimating the space you need, to try to get a lower price, because they will charge you for the actual space you move. That’s only fair. Unless you are a minimalist, there is no way you can fit a four bedroom home in a 26 ft. rental truck. If you try, you will have a very unpleasant surprise come moving day. The cost of renting two rental trucks plus fuel was actually a bit higher than the cost of the MovingPlace. Driving two moving vans and two passenger cars 1200 miles would have been a lot more involved, time consuming and fatiguing than just driving two cars. Read your pre-move instructions provided by Movingplace thoroughly. Understanding the process and heeding their advice will make your move go much smoother. Moving this way is more complicated than using a full service mover, but the cost savings is amazing. Including local movers to wrap, load, unload, buying moving blankets on Craig’s List and ratchet strap, tie-downs at Home Depot, our total costs were just 39% of the cost of a full service mover. Therefore, I would highly recommend using the MovingPlace.

MovingPlace Response

Thank you for the comments Rich. We really appreciate the feedback. Stu, Chris, and the Movingplace Team.

Question to MovingPlace

from paul l. in CA - Sunday, December 7, 2014

Can I hire a driver for a one way drive of a UHaul truck from LA to San Antonio?

MovingPlace Response

Hello Paul, We do not have driver services like this. We actually provide the moving truck, driver, fuel, and door-to-door service. If you compare our pricing to what you are paying for a Uhaul only, you may be surprised that often we are cheaper than Uhaul while providing a lot more service. Movingplace

Question to MovingPlace

from Mary H. in GA - Monday, September 22, 2014

Do you have 24 ft pods? An estimate cost to move from Albany, Ga to Sicklerville, NJ mid or late October?

MovingPlace Response

Hi Mary, Most of the moving trucks that we use are 28ft long, 8.5ft wide, and 9ft tall (inside dimensions). We can get you as much space as you need on one of those trucks by using a bulkhead (wall) to make a private compartment for you on that moving truck. So we can accommodate any sized shipment, large or small. If you need more than 28ft, we can get you a second truck or we can rent you an entire 53ft moving van. Moving Place Web Team

Question to MovingPlace

from Michael D. in CA - Wednesday, March 12, 2014

I am moving from Fresno, CA to a rural area of North Carolina and PODS does not service my area. I can pick it up at their facility 60 miles away, but that is too expensive and a pain. Do you guys service Boone, North Carolina?

MovingPlace Response

Hi Michael, Because we use moving trucks and not PODS containers, we can take the trucks to much more remote locations. Yes, we service Boone directly. If you fill out the quote form on this page, we will email you a quick price quote. Or you can call us on our 800 number and we will help you right away. Thank you! Moving Place

Question to MovingPlace

from Randall P. in TX - Sunday, March 10, 2013

I need at least a 53' trailer to move. I have already moved twice and that is what it took. Do you offer 53' tractor trailers for you move?

MovingPlace Response

Yes Randall, we have both 53' moving trucks and 28' moving trucks available. The 53' vans all are equipped with loading ramps, furniture blankets, and tie-down straps, giving you the best equipment available for large moves.

Question to MovingPlace

from Corine D. in FL - Monday, November 26, 2012

I need a long distance mover and am looking at moving pods or you guys. What is the difference between the two?

MovingPlace Response

Other than from Movingplace being less expensive, Pods is a container moving service and Movingplace is a moving service provided on long distance moving trucks. Pods brings out a container and leaves it in your driveway where you load it. They then put it on a flatbed and haul it to the destination. Movingplace arranges a professional moving van equipped with furniture blankets, loading ramps, tie down straps, and a dolly. You load it. We transport the moving truck to the destination where you unload it. The major difference between PODS and Movingplace is the air-ride moving vans providing a better ride for your furniture and you having all of the equipment to properly wrap and pad all of your stuff. Having the proper equipment for your long distance move is the key to success.

Question to MovingPlace

from Melissa G. in FL - Wednesday, June 13, 2012

I need to get the best moving quote from your moving companies. I am moving from Florida to California. I also have a car that I am moving. How do i get pricing for moving both the car and the furniture?

MovingPlace Response

Melissa, When you fill out the online moving quote form, you will see a dropdown menu to select the size of your move. You will see the number of bedrooms and next to some of the sizes you will see the word PLUS. Plus means that you are moving a home with that many bedrooms plus a car. Selecting this lets our moving companies know that you are moving a car as well. Movingplace
