Question to MovingPlace

from Deby Z. in MA - Tuesday, October 17, 2017

Hello We are planning to move next June from MA to CA and have a house and one car we want transported. Do you go by weight? I am not going to bring a lot of furniture maybe just a few rooms worth plus boxes. How can I get a quote? Thanks

MovingPlace Response

Hi Deby, We charge based on the amount of space that you use on the moving truck, not by the weight. If you fill out our quote form, one of our relocation specialists will put together some pricing options that might work for you. Movingplace

Question to MovingPlace

from Jay H. in TX - Tuesday, September 26, 2017

I just need to move a couple pieces of furniture that are family heirlooms from San Diego area to Houston TX. Can you help me with this? I don't want to spend thousands of dollars to move furniture that is important to me but not that expensive

MovingPlace Response

Hi Jay, We can certainly help you with a small shipment. We can get you a compartment on the moving van that is 4ft deep x 8.5ft wide x 9ft tall. You can load your goods securely in that private compartment and they will be shipped to your home. Once the shipment arrives at your destination, you unload it. If you put the items to be shipped in the comments section of the quote form and select the smallest size, we will email pricing to you right away. Thanks! Movingplace

Question to MovingPlace

from Mark G. in OH - Thursday, April 13, 2017

How much will it cost to transport a Kia Forte hatchback and an around 30 totes and other furniture items that fill 2- 6x12 trailer?

MovingPlace Response

Hi Mark, We don't put pricing on the forum as the forum information stays active long after the pricing has changed for a move. Our prices are good for 30 days and change with demand and seasonality in certain lanes. If you would like a current quote for your move, please either fill out the form at the top of this page or give us a call at 800-876-6839. Thank you! Movingplace

Question to MovingPlace

My aunt is moving from cape coral fl to gainesville ga, she doesn't like driving long distances, she only has a car and some house furniture that she needs to move here, Around how much would the price be?

MovingPlace Response

Hello Alejandro, We will email some pricing to you for moving your aunt's car and furniture. We do not put pricing up on the forum as the prices change with seasons and we don't want out of date pricing to be listed on the internet. Movingplace

Question to MovingPlace

from Christina N. in MD - Thursday, January 26, 2017

I am not sure how much stuff I will actually have, what happens if I have overstated/understated the Bedroom size in the estimate? Or what if I selected the 5x10 size (or up) option, would it be adjusted based on the space I actually use?

MovingPlace Response

Yes Christina, We will give you a price for your anticipated needs and then a rate per foot for any additional space that you need on the moving truck. Everything is done in writing and right up front. You will never be surprised with any pricing shenanigans when working with Movingplace. Thanks! Movingplace

Question to MovingPlace

from James A. in VA - Monday, August 8, 2016

My father is planning on relocating from Virginia Beach, VA to La Jolla, CA. He will have miscellaneous furniture, since he is downsizing to a small retirement community, but he will also have a 4-door Honda Civic to move. Can you move this? Approximately how much will this cost?

MovingPlace Response

Hi James, Yes, we can handle moving just about any-sized shipment from coast to coast. We can also move the your father's car along with the furniture. What we should probably do is a piggyback move, where your dad gets a smaller compartment on a big moving van, and then move the car on an auto transporter. That will be the quickest and cheapest way to move your dad's car and furniture. Movingplace

Question to MovingPlace

from joy c. in CA - Thursday, July 28, 2016

I am moving from Reseda CA to Marshall NC in September. I know a tractor trailer with a driver is my solution. If the trailer is 53 foot what would that cost ?

MovingPlace Response

Hi Joy, Since things like gas prices and seasonality affect the price of moving, we do not put moving prices up on the forum. If you would like to call our office at 800-876-6839, we will be happy to help you with pricing for a full 53 ft moving van. Thanks! Movingplace

Question to MovingPlace

from Andrea W. in TN - Saturday, July 23, 2016

Do you provide price matches?

MovingPlace Response

If you have a price from a competitor that provides the same service that we do, we are generally able to match or beat it. We are very competitively priced in most markets so you won't have the need to bring a lower price to the table.... we want to be that company right up front! That being said, we cannot price match in every area of the country. Please give us a call and let us compare apples to apples and see if we can earn your business! Movingplace

Question to MovingPlace

from Kathy G. in FL - Tuesday, June 28, 2016

I have a couple pieces of furniture and a few boxes I would like moved from Palm City Florida to Baldwinsville NY. Can you give me a ball park figure to move these items? Thank You

MovingPlace Response

Hi Kathy, Because rates change with seasons and zip codes in areas can affect pricing, we do not put pricing for moves out on the forum. You can either give us a call or fill out the quote form on our homepage and we will be glad to put together some excellent options for your move. Movingplace

Question to MovingPlace

from Lokesh S. in TX - Monday, September 28, 2015

We are trying to move ohio from Texas around 1 month and we have some furnitures and a car to move to new location. My concern is about the shipping charge including all government taxes. Do you also provide driver?

MovingPlace Response

Hi Lokesh, The prices that we quote are all-inclusive. There will be no surprise charges added on that you are not expecting. What a lot of people do not realize is that interstate moving is NOT taxed to the consumer. Fuel taxes are paid by trucking companies in the form of special assessments that are made by the government. Movingplace

Question to MovingPlace

from Sue K. in NY - Monday, September 28, 2015

Hi. We were looking to move with a 26ft truck from other truck rental companies but the ridiculous amounts they are asking for ($4,500) will not allow us to use them. We have a 3/4 bedroom home to move across the country. Can this be done within a reasonable rate?

MovingPlace Response

Hi Sue, Yes, this can be done with reasonable rates. We provide the moving truck, fuel, driver, and door to door transport, often for the same or less money than a rental truck. Usually, the further you are moving, the more competitive we are. Movingplace

from Bob C. in MS - Friday, January 23, 2015

The move will tak sometime in Feb 2015 from Tupelo, MS to Bella Vista, AR. Can you give me approximate cost for a 4 bedroom move?

MovingPlace Response

Hi Bob, If you fill out a quote form at the top of our website, a quote will be emailed to you. I would suggest calling in as well. If you have a very large home and a lot of stuff, you can get some bulk discounts for taking an entire moving van. That could save you a lot of money and give you some added benefits such as quicker transit time, shipping your car on the same moving van, etc. Movingplace

Question to MovingPlace

from Betty O. in MN - Thursday, October 23, 2014

Earlier I asked for a moving quote. I actually will have more than 10 items and more than a 5 by 5 storage unit just because of the shape of the items, but less than a 5 by 10. (We recently had a 5 by 5 storage unit and then a 5 by 10 unit so am familiar with the sizes.) The odd shaped items are 3 adult bicycles, a doghouse and a dog kennel. I will know the number of boxes after I go back home and pack them - perhaps 10 boxes 2'by 2' by 2' with clothes and papers. I can put some of my things in the dog house and kennel which will add to their weight but cut down on the number of boxes. I appreciate your help with an estimate of the cost.

MovingPlace Response

Thank you for the updated details on your move, Betty. I forwarded this to the relocation specialist that was working on pricing for your move. They are going to update and call you with a couple of different options. Thanks! Movingplace

Question to MovingPlace

from Howard N. in FL - Sunday, September 2, 2012

I want to rent space on a moving van. Can I only rent a part of the moving van? I don't need the whole thing, just about 14ft.

MovingPlace Response

Our self service moving (you load, we drive) would be perfect for you. Your moving cost is determined by the amount of space that you use on the moving truck. There are moving walls inside each of the moving vans that can be adjusted to securely handle any size shipment from 6ft all the way up to a full tractor trailer move.

Question to MovingPlace

from carissa j. in FL - Monday, August 13, 2012

i was given a quote for 12 feet. What happens if i use more feet than i was quoted for?

MovingPlace Response

If you use more space than you were quoted, you will be charged the same price per foot for the overage. For example, if you order 12ft for $1200 on the moving truck and use 13ft, your new price would be $1300. It is actually more inexpensive to order the space on the moving truck in advance (the extra foot may only be $50 in advance), but it is your option whether or not you are going to take more feet and you know exactly what you are going to pay if you go over. Please remember that if you order 12ft and are the last person to load onto the moving van, you may only have 12ft available when the van arrives, so be sure to order a little extra space on the moving truck just in case

Question to MovingPlace

from Justin B. in FL - Friday, June 22, 2012

I need a moving quote for my move out of Florida. I need some great pricing. How much does it cost to move a 2 bedroom apartment from Miami to Chicago, IL?

MovingPlace Response

You are in the right place! If you fill out our moving quote request form on the right hand side of this page, quality moving companies will email you the best moving rates available!

Question to MovingPlace

from Camilla A. in FL - Monday, June 11, 2012

I need a long distance moving company to move my furniture and car from Orlando, FL to Seattle, WA. Do you have moving companies that can give me a moving quote for that?

MovingPlace Response

Camilla, Yes! We have moving companies that are based in Seattle that move people to Florida. Those movers often have empty space on their moving vans going back to Washington. If you fill out the moving quote request form on our site, we will make sure that both Florida and Washington State movers get the request. Make sure that you put the correct moving date on your quote request. The movers that have a moving truck that matches your loading date will be the ones that will give you the best prices. Movingplace

Question to MovingPlace

from Albert A. in FL - Sunday, June 10, 2012

Question to MovingPlace

from Merle W. in NY - Saturday, June 9, 2012

I plan to relocate to New York. I have a 2006 VW Beetle Bug as well as queen size bed in bedframe, dresser, 3 seater couch and a few end tables plus personal items. Can you move car and furniture together? Estimate cost? Thanks

MovingPlace Response

Merle, Yes, you can move your car and furniture on the same moving van. You would load your funiture into its own compartment on the moving van. The driver will put up a wall between your car and the furniture. Usually, they will have a flatbed wrecker come out to load your car onto the moving van as driving it up the loading ramps, while do-able, is not for the faint of heart. All of your stuff will arrive at the same time at your destination. It is the easiest way to move and, in most circumstances, the cheapest way to rent space on a moving truck. Movingplace

I need to get a moving quote for a move from Florida to California. Do you provide both self service quotes and full service moving quotes? I don't want to load and unload the moving truck myself?

MovingPlace Response

Question to MovingPlace

from Rose P. in CA - Monday, May 28, 2012

I have a car and two rooms of furniture to move. How much will that cost?

MovingPlace Response

If you fill out the moving quote form at the top of this page, our moving company partners will email you guaranteed moving quotes.

Question to MovingPlace

from Paul D. in CA - Friday, May 25, 2012

How much does it cost to move a car and furniture on a self-service moving truck?

MovingPlace Response

The cost to move your car with your furniture depends on whether you want to move your car on the same moving truck or hire an auto transporter. If you go with the first option, the moving company will put your car on the same moving van as your furniture. This is a little bit more expensive, but is a lot more convenient. If you use an auto transport company, you will save a couple of hundred dollars, but your car will move independently from the rest of your household goods and could end up taking a couple more weeks to transport if you are moving long distance (cross-country). If you fill out our moving quote form, you will get great pricing.
