Customer Questions

Hi Brandon,Any shipment that is not ordering the entire moving van is going to be on a shared moving truck. Let me clarify that though. We only put one household shipment on each 28 foot truck. The truck is empty when it comes to you. You will load your stuff up against the front wall and work your way back until you are finished loading. Then, a bulkhead wall goes up to separate your stuff into a “private compartment” in the front of the truck. We take the moving truck to a nearby freight terminal where we put boxed and crated freight on the back of it to fill it up. We do this so that your household items are never left unattended and don’t sit in front of someone else’s home. So all of our moving vans are, in effect, shared moving trucks, but you are not sharing with another household.

Yes Kaya,We can get you pricing for that amount of space on a shared moving truck. We see that you have filled out the quote request form. We will be emailing pricing shortly.

Yes Christopher,We can move your motorcycle and two bedroom apartment on the same moving van. We will get you a private compartment on a shared moving truck. That will give you the best pricing with the most secure way of moving.

Hi Ethel,Unless you order the entire moving truck, all of our moves are on a shared moving truck. When the truck comes to your home, it will be empty. You will load right up against the front wall of the truck. Once you are done loading, a bulkhead wall goes up to separate your goods into their own compartment. We have the truck taken to the local trucking terminal where boxed and crated commercial freight will fill out the the rest of the truck. We never leave your goods unattended in front of another customer’s home!We need about a week’s notice to be able to schedule a move on a shared moving truck. If you want to rent a whole tractor trailer, we can usually do that with 3 day’s notice.

Hi Fazilla,I see that you filled out one of our quote request forms, so you should already have a quote for this emailed to you with information about how it works, etc. Please let us know if we can help with anything else. You can either respond to the email that we sent you with pricing or, our phone number is 800-876-6839.Thanks!

Hi Kimberly,I see that you filled out our quote request form as well. You should have already gotten an email with the pricing for a shared moving truck. Please let us know if you have any questions or if we can help in any way.Thanks! 800-876-6839

Hi Margaret,Yes we can help her on one of our shared moving trucks for a very competitive rate. If you have not already, please fill out our quote form and we will email pricing to you for a couple of different size options that we have for the shared truck program. She will get a private compartment, so you don’t have to worry about her stuff getting mixed up or lost.

Hi Carole,You would have some space left over on a 4ft x 8ft section on our shared moving truck, but that still might work for your small shipment. I see that you filled out a quote request on the website. We will email pricing for that small shipment.Thanks!

Hi Chris,It will take about 6 days for us to move your stuff from Indiana to Arizona. We can work out dates so that you know when to anticipate arrival of the moving van at both origin and destination. Unless you are renting the entire truck, all of our shipments are on shared moving vans. However, we normally only do one household goods shipment on each moving truck. Here is how it works… The truck is empty when we bring it to your home. You load your stuff up against the front wall of the moving van and work your way back. When you are done loading, a bulkhead wall goes up to separate your stuff from anything else that we load. We take the truck back to a local freight terminal and load boxed and crated goods on the back to fill out the rest of the space, hence your “shared moving truck”. Once we have a household shipment on board, your goods stay in our carrier’s possession and are not left anywhere unattended (ie. at another customer’s home).

Hi Karen,We can make you the first load on the moving truck. We would bring the truck to you and you would load all of your stuff into the “nose” of the trailer (against the front wall). A bulkhead wall then separates all of your items into the front of the truck. We will then load commercial goods, boxed and crated freight, into the back part of the trailer to offset the cost of your move. In essence, all of our moves are on shared moving trucks unless you rent the entire van as an “exclusive use” unit.

Hi Vicki,We have shared moving trucks leaving Massachusetts every week. We just need to work out the amount of space you will need on the moving van and when the truck would be available to load on your week. Please give us a call at 800-876-6839 and we will work out pricing and timing with you.Thanks!

Hi Nancy,Our service provides the truck, fuel, driver, and door to door transport. We would not be able to provide all of that at a cost that is less than Uhaul. That being said, we probably won’t be a whole lot more. When using a shared moving truck, we will be very competitively priced.

Hi Holly,We can certainly help you with a shared moving truck. Each customer gets a private compartment, so there is never any mingling of goods. Also, the moving truck is never left unattended with anyone’s stuff on it. Please type “shared moving truck” in the comments section of the quote form and one of our representatives will email some pricing to you.

Hi Leslie,We can certainly put you on one our shared moving trucks where you get your own compartment and the rest of the moving truck is filled with commercial freight (boxed and crated goods). Please put “shared moving truck” in the comments section of the quote request form, or give us a call at 800-876-6839 for immediate pricing.Thanks!

Hello Hazel,It should take about 6 business days to move your furniture from New York to Arizona. For our standard service, the moving truck is brought to your home empty. You load up against the front wall of the truck and work your way back. Once you are done, a bulkhead wall goes up that blocks your stuff into the front of the moving van. We then take it to a freight terminal and finish filling the truck with boxed and crated freight… so, there is generally only one household moving customer per truck. We do not remove your goods from the truck and your stuff is never left unattended in a place where someone could access your goods. It is a very safe way to move.

Hi Gloria,This would be a good move for our shared moving truck service. If you will fill out our quote form and put “piggyback move” in the comments section, we can get pricing for you to get your own 12ft compartment on the a moving van. You would load it, the driver would take it to Virginia and put it in front of your new home where you would unload it. That should be very economical in our system.Thanks!

Hi Kimberly,You should select the “One Bedroom” size for your one bedroom apartment move and then add the make and model of the cars to be moved in the comments section of the quote form. We can put the furniture on a shared moving truck (you get a private compartment on it) and the cars on an auto transporter to save you some money Of course, you can also call us at 800-876-6839 and we can give you a quote instantly over the phone.Thanks!

Hi Christa,That is, in essence, what we do. We bring a moving truck out to your home. You have a private compartment in which to load. We then take that moving truck to a freight terminal and load boxed freight onto the rest of the truck, that way, we are never leaving your household goods unattended in front of someone else’s house. When we get to the destination, we drop the boxes at the local freight depot and bring the moving van to your home for you to unload. We never leave your household goods unattended and we do not move the stuff around inside the trucks. It stays right where you load it until you take it off at destination.

Hi Wolfgang,If you will fill out the quote form, we will email a price to you. We normally require a week’s notice to be able to provide a shared moving truck.

Hi Robert,Yes, we can handle just about any shipment, large or small. You do not have to rent an entire moving van when using our services. Using a shared truck is a great way to save money when moving. Also, each shipment on the moving trucks that we provide is in its own compartment, so you don’t have to worry about your stuff getting mixed up with anything else on the shared moving van.Thank you!
