If I rent a U haul can you just assign a driver to drive truck one way and then I can pay for their flight back?
Movingplace provides the truck, fuel, driver and door to door transport for self moves. We do not provide drivers for other peoples’ trucks.
We have full 53 foot tractor trailers available if needed. We can move multiple trucks for one shipment also if you need it.
We need a trailer container on our property in Burlington NC to store home furnishings until we sell our home. Then we need it moved loaded to Palm Coast FL. We don’t know how long it will take to sell our home so we would most likely need it for several months. Can you provide extended monthly rental then transport? Thank you!
Hi Jennifer,We primarily provide moving truck transport services. We do have storage available, but not long term storage. We have discounted rates for the first two months of storage. After that, the rates are higher.
Would like an estimate for a move from Smithtown NY to St. Augustine FL around October 17th. We only have a small dresser, two end tables, a metal headboard for a double bed, and about ten boxes to move. Also, will the truck be a small one or a large shared moving truck! We can’t have a truck parked at the house for more than a few hours during the day. Thank you.
Hey Steve,We get this question a lot. The smallest moving truck that we provide is 28 feet long. We can generally get in and out of apartment complexes with that unit. There are a couple of ways to handle loading in limited access locations. With the small amount of stuff that you have to move, I would recommend a “live load”. A live load means that the driver will wait while you load. There is generally one hour free and an hourly charge for each additional hour that he waits.Or, if you need several hours, you may be able to do a “same day drop and pick”. This is where the driver drops the truck in the morning and picks it up in the afternoon. Charges for this vary by location, so it would be best to call us at 800-876-6839 to see which would be the easiest and most economical way for you to move.
Moving from temecula ca to Boise next month. Have a 2 bedroom home with 2 atv and a truck. We want it delivered immediately after pickup so we are not without for more than 2 days. Is that possible?
Hi Vicki,The only way to get direct service would be to rent an entire 53 foot tractor trailer with a dedicated driver. We have that type of moving truck service available, but it is very expensive. Our standard transit time from Temecula to Boise would be approximately 3-4 days.
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.
Do you work in Canada at all? Looking for space on truck from Montreal Quebec to Squamish BCI just put any state down but I am lookiing for Canada info
Hi Maria,We do not have moving truck service to Canada at this time. Coming soon!
Hi Gregory,We are a long distance transportation company only. We do not have local trucks for rent.
I’m moving to Orange Park FL in July from Kalamazoo MI. My question is…. I’m a semi truck owner and I just need to rent a trailer to move it my self. Is that possible
Hi Jose,We provide the truck, fuel, driver, and door to door transport on moving vans/tractor trailers. Unfortunately, we cannot rent our equipment for other drivers to pull.
Do you use 53 foot trailers or box trucks? My stuff is currently sitting in a storage unit at a facility that a tractor/trailer would not be able to access. I would also need to unload at a storage facility; is that feasible for your operation?
Hi Sophia,We use 28 foot pup trailers as well as 53 foot tractor trailers for moving. Most storage facilities can handle the pup trailers. You should ask the management to make sure that we have a place to park for you to load your moving van.
When you leave your truck, either at the moving from residence or the moving to residence, do you park both the tractor and trailer there while its being loaded or unloaded anddo you park it on the street or on the driveway. I’m not sure my stone (paver) driveway could handle the weight.
Hi Randy,We generally drop off the trailer in the street or in your driveway. The tractor leaves and comes back the next day (or days) to pick up the loaded trailer. The empty trailer is not an issue for most driveways, but a loaded trailer can be quite heavy. It is at your discretion as to whether or not we put it in your driveway or on the street.
We are moving from MA to SC. Our new home is in a gated community and will not accept 18 wheelers. We have a 3 bedroom home and would need about 20 to 22′ of truck space.
Hi Dan,We could bring in a 28 foot moving truck for your move. We have those specifically for the situations where a 53 foot tractor trailer is not allowed. We break the moving trucks down into smaller compartments using movable walls (bulkheads), so you can get the right amount of space for your move without paying for the entire truck.
Can we move the truck once it is delivered to us for loading? Our apartment has no long-term parking for a truck (only carports) so it would have to be parked in the street, far away from our apartment. Would we be able to move the truck into the driveway to load and then back to the street to be parked overnight?
Hi Michelle,The moving trucks that we use are tractor trailers. They are the smaller, 28 foot pup trailers, so they will go into most housing subdivisions and apartment complexes. We drop the trailer portion at the house for you to load. So, it cannot be moved. We have a couple of ways to work around situations like this. We can do a live load, where the driver pulls up in front of your home and waits while you load. Or, we can do a same day drop off and pick up.. where we bring the moving truck out in the morning and take it back out that afternoon. We would need to get on a call and assess your situation to help pick which one may be the best for your move.
Hello, I am very confused on how much space I am supposed to be using for my move. It says 8ft but is that 8ft tall or 8ft long?
The moving trucks are 8.5 feet wide and 9 feet tall inside. The variable is how much space you are using in length. So, if we quoted you 8 feet of space on a moving van, that means that you have 8 feet of length (using the full 8.5 feet of width and 9 feet of height in that 8 feet of length). If you are still not understanding the size of the moving trucks, please give us a call at 800-876-6839 and we will try to better explain it.Thanks!
I am moving from a house in Georgia to a apartment in Texas. will your truck be allowed on the apartment parking lot or do we need to make special arrangements ?
Hi Nancy,We use 28ft trucks for most orders. These moving trucks usually do not have any problem navigating parking lots. You will need to check with your apartment complex management to find out where we can park the truck. They usually will have instructions for your on where and how long they allow parking. Please let us know those instructions when you book your move and we will have the driver work with you to get the moving truck parked in the appropriate place.
I found info. on a 26′ moving truck having interior space that is 1700 sq. ft. What is the volume of a 28′ truck. really helps to have this info. in planning a move.
The moving trucks that we utilize are 8.5ft wide and 9ft tall inside. So each linear foot has 76.5 cubic feet of space. The 28ft trucks are 2142 cubic feet inside and the 53ft trucks are 4054 cubic feet inside. So, our 28ft truck has a capacity that is 20% greater than that of the 26ft Uhaul.
Yes I’d like to know how much it would cost to move my small car and some personal items ..no furniture ..like about 15 or 16 plastic tubs
Hi Stephanie,When you only have plastic tubs and/or boxes to ship and a car to move, we recommend letting us ship the car and then send the rest of the stuff via UPS. It is cheaper to ship boxes in the UPS system rather than try to put them on a moving van.
HI movingplace, my family and I are moving from PA to AZ and were wondering how much it would cost to move. We have a 4 bedroom house with a lot of other stuff. Do you have any price range and what you would recommend getting for this big of a move?
Hi Stephanie,The size of the moving truck that you will need depends on what the “lot of other stuff” is in your move. If it is a 3 car garage full of stuff that you cannot fit a car in, you should probably get pricing for a full 53ft moving van. If it is a couple of outdoor furniture pieces, you might be able to go with 24ft of space on one of the moving trucks.If you will give our office a call at 800-876-6839, we will help you make a good choice for your shipment size and get good pricing for your move as well.Thanks!
Hello. I am moving my parents from Brooklyn NY to Edmonds, WA and after downsizing they still have enough stuff to fill a 26′ moving truck. I would like to pack the truck and have it driven away the same day, given the limited availability of parking such a large truck on their block (they do not have a driveway, and Brooklyn parking spots are very small and very limited). Could you please give me an idea if this is possible with your company and an idea of price?
Hi Stacy,The smallest moving truck that we use is 28ft long, but it is still possible to do a same day load in some areas of Brooklyn with that sized vehicle. We will need to check your address and see if it is serviceable. The best way to do that is to call our office to check. Please give us a call at 800-876-6839.Thanks!
Hi MovingPlace, I am graduating from College and need to pack all my stuff from the dorm room to my home in NYC. Is it possible to rent a small truck and driver for the move from your company? My family and I would do the loading. All we need is a driver and a small truck to haul my belongings to new york city.
Hi Tira,You have come to the right place! We can handle any size shipment, large or small. This time of year is especially busy for young adults and college moves. Please fill out our quote request form and one of our reps will email you the best price that we have available. Looking forward to working with you.
