Customer Questions

We have full 53 foot tractor trailers available if needed. We can move multiple trucks for one shipment also if you need it.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

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.

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.

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 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!

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 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.

Hi Sean,We also have 28ft moving trucks available. If you have a parking issue with the big tractor-trailer, we could bring you a 28ft moving truck and, once you are done loading that, bring out another one for anything that is left. For the second moving van, you would only pay for the actual space that was used for the move. Looking forward to serving you!
