Hi Chris,Since we are a self service mover and you are providing the loading and unloading, coverage is going to be limited to catastrophic events, such as a truck accident, fire, etc. If you have a renter’s policy, you are more than likely already covered for this. If you do not have any coverage, please give us a call. Depending on where you are moving from and to, we will have some options available for you at a very reasonable price.
who much would it cost to hire a driver to drive uhaul truck with lite weight sand buggie and trailer in tow from rialto,ca to anchorage Alaska.thank you.
Hi Roy,For self-service (you load, we drive) moves, we provide the truck, fuel, driver, and door to door transport. We do not have drivers that will drive other peoples’ rented trucks. We do not have service to Alaska at this time, but should by the end of the summer.Thanks!
Hi!What would be the best solution, both logistically and economically to ship a medium sized motorcycle and a couple of items from NJ to FL? A “Pod” box perhaps?Thank you in advance.
Hi Miguel,The best idea would be to get a space on a moving truck that is large enough to fit the motorcycle and other items. The self service moving trucks have ramps and you can just drive the motorcycle right up the ramps. There are place inside the truck to secure your goods every 16 inches. Get some heavy straps and you can secure the motorcycle. That will be the cheapest and best way to move what you are moving.
We are trying to make a self service move from Salt Lake City, UT to Blaine, Minnesota just wondering how this works we have never did this before?
Hi Brianna,Self service moving is easy. We bring a truck out to your home for you to load (we can usually leave the moving truck for up to 3 days, or over a weekend at no additional charge). You load it. We will transport the moving truck to the destination where you will have up to 3 days to unload it. We charge based on the amount of space that you use on the truck, not the weight, so you will not have any surprises for billing). If you fill out our quote form on this page or give us a call at 800-876-6839, we can help you with pricing.Thanks!
My son is moving from chicago to Cummings georgia and He wants to move his dresser, mirror and queen size bed and his chevy camaro car.How much will that cost? how long will it take to get there? He is moving there on June 10, 2017. Will his things be delivered to his apartment on the day he will get there?Thanks
Hi Carline,For self service moving, we can work with you to arrange delivery on a specified day. We would need you to call our office at 800-876-6839 and speak to one of our relocation specialists so that we can work that out figuring in the size of shipment, car, etc.
I’m looking to do a self service move from Michigan to Denver CO. I have had a full service mover out who says that it weighs around 4000 pounds? What are my options?
Hi Chris,Self service moving is different from full service in that we charge by the amount of space that is used on the moving truck, not the weight of the shipment. This takes most of the guesswork out of your pricing. We feel that as a consumer, it is darn near impossible to figure out how much your shipment weighs and can set you up for a nasty pricing surprise. But, you can measure out how much space you are ordering and know in advance whether or not the stuff that you are moving will fit in that space. Give us a call and we can help you figure out how much space you may need for your self service move at 800-876-6839.
Hello, I need to move few items and want to do a self service move: Queen Matress,Queen Frame Bed, Small dining table, 4 chairs, ant a TV Stand. This will go from Gaithersburg MD to Miami Fl. How much can it cost. Thank you.
Hi Jose,All of our moves are self service, meaning that we provide the moving truck, driver, and door to door service. The customer provides the loading and unloading. I see that you already filled out one of our quote forms with your contact information, so I will email over a self service moving quote to you now.
Would you be able to provide us with self service moving from West Covina, CA to Nampa, Idaho? How long would it take to receive our stuff? Last time we moved we used a 26 ft truck from uhaul what size would you recommend with your service? We have about the same amount of stuff if not a little less.Thank you in advance!
Hi Rosa,We can certainly help you with a self-service move to Idaho. The 26ft uhaul truck is not as wide nor as high as one of our moving trucks. For comparable space, you would need to order 22 feet of space on one of our moving vans (they are 8.5 feet wide and 9 feet tall). Transit time from California to Idaho is going to be approximately 3 days. We would need to look at when you want to move to be able to determine the best days for loading and unloading. Please give us a call at 800-876-6839 and we can narrow down the details.Thanks!
I am making a self service move from San Diego ca to Jacksonville NC in mid October. I need to ship a running 2002 Ford Taurus, queen mattress,box spring w/metal frame, 32″ flat screen tv, home computer, and 3 boxes of clothes. Best way and price possible. Any help,would be great thanks!
Hi Corey,You have come to the right place. We can do a self service move for your furniture (where you load and unload and we do everything else). For moving your car, there really is not a self service moving option. The driver will load, unload, and secure your car for you on an auto transporter. If you fill out our quote form, put the make and model of your car in the comments section so our representatives will know to price the car for you.Thanks!
I requested a quote to move a 2+ bed house down. all my belongings are in a 25x30 storage bin with a little room left over. I want to do a self service move where I load and unload.thanks
Hi Janet,Self service moving is what we do! We provide the moving truck, fuel, driver, and door to door transport for your self service move. You provide the loading and unloading.
I need a large moving truck to move all of my stuff from Indiana to Arizona? I have a 3 Bedroom house that is lightly furnished and we are going to be getting rid of some stuff. How much will it cost? Is everything included? I do not want any surprises. The last time I used a full-service mover and they charged me based on the weight of the shipment. Once they picked everything up and weighed it, they charged me twice as much money as they had quoted. I don’t want that to happen again.
Hi Sarah,One of the biggest benefits of moving this way is that you pay for the space used, not how much the stuff weighs. You know exactly how much space that you have on the moving truck and you know exactly how much that it will cost. If you need extra space, you know right up front how much each extra foot of space will cost… there are not surprises.
Once the moving truck is delivered to my home, how long do I have to load my furniture & items before the truck is picked up?
Hi Kelly,We can normally give you up to 3 business days to load and 3 business days to unload. We can also have you load the truck over the weekend at no additional charge.
will you deliver to a storage facility in tampa fl? i am doing a self-service move and need to deliver to a storage unit.
Hi Gloria,Yes, our moving trucks are 28ft long and can deliver to most storage facilities. You should call the facility first to confirm that a moving van of that size can fit and has a place to park.
Hi, we are looking to move from the Bethlehem Pa area to San Diego Ca. Can you give me a time frame of how long it would take our stuff to arrive in Ca?
Hi Angela,For one of our self service moves from PA to California, you can expect about 6 business days for the moving truck to travel across the country.
My husband and I are relocating to Orlando from Boston. Our Orlando residence has an HOA that doesn’t allow trucks/pods to parked over night. Can you all do same day delivery & pick up?
Hi Brinley,Yes, we have the ability to bring the moving truck to your home in the morning and pick it back up later that afternoon when you are finished unloading. If you have a small shipment, we can also do a “live unload” where the driver waits while you unload and then leaves as soon as you are finished.
I am moving from Columbus oh to marion ohio all I need moved is bed couch chair and chest how much would this be?
Hi Melissa,We are a long distance company only. We do not do moves within the same state.
I would like to move a 3 bedroom house (on the smaller end) from Cable, WI to Washington state. I am having a difficult time finding someone to do this. Is this something you can do?
Hi Lori,Yes, we have service to some very remote places. If you fill out the quote form at the top of this page, we can put some options together for you and email them over.Thanks!
We are trying to move a load of furniture from our home in rural Guilford, VT to our daughter’s apt. in Chicago (zipcode 60613). We’ve been told by “U-Pack” that they can’t deliver to that zipcode because of Chicago laws. Is that true for you all too? Is there any way around this issue?
Hi Susan,For self service moving, where you load and unload the truck, there are areas of Chicago where there is no parking allowed on the street. The way around that issue is to do a “live load” or “live unload”. That simply means that the driver is going to wait with the moving truck while you load or unload. So, if the truck has to be moved in mid-load, it can be moved. So the real issue is parking, not any goofy Chicago law. If you will give us a call at 800-876-6839, we can work with you to get pricing for your move and figure out the logistics of getting a moving truck to your daughter in Chicago. In the event that even a live load is not available, the next option would be to pick the furniture up at the shipping terminal in Chicago with a smaller truck. Even then, you have the issue of parking that moving truck when you are unloading… Chicago can be interesting!
Hi Don,We can only move things on moving trucks that are arranged by us. We do not haul or move equipment or trucks from other providers.
Hello. I will be moving 1 48 foot trailer’s worth of materials once per month, making a full lap of the east US yearly. I normally do it in 2 24 foot pup trailers, but can do it in 1 large trailer (not preferred, but if much difference in cost I’ll do it)We have been using another service so far, but I am not satisfied with the service.Could you give me an idea of cost per mile, as a general rule/average? I won’t take it as a quote, as I don’t have dates, etc. yet (First move will be in about may 1st). If you could give me a ballpark, or some examples of moves you have done already and their costs (just “from this city to that one”) that would be great!Thanks much,Nick James
Hi Nick,We would be happy to help you with a quote for your move. Do you need commercial freight service or are you moving household goods? Please give us a call at 800-876-6839 as there are many variables that will affect the rate. We should discuss them to make sure you are getting the right service at the right price.Thanks!
