Question to MovingPlace

from Naomi S. in CA - Saturday, October 7, 2017

We are moving from Bay Point CA to Las Vegas NV at the end of the month. Will a 4 bedroom house and 10x7 storage unit fit in the largest container you have?

MovingPlace Response

Hi Naomi, For a move as large as yours, we would recommend a full 53 foot tractor trailer. To answer your question directly, yes, that would normally fit into a full 53 foot moving van. That is the largest size that anyone would have available. If you have too much stuff, we can get a second smaller moving truck to you for the overflow within 24 hours. Movingplace

I need to move a 1968 Ford pickup, large rolling tool box, smaller tool box, and several medium to large boxes of clothes/photos, etc. from Fort Worth, TX to Kenner, LA in July. Not sure what to select on the "approximate size" field on the "Free Moving Quote"

MovingPlace Response

Hi Ruby, Select the size for "Studio Apartment" and put the make and model of the vehicle to be shipped in the comments section of the quote form. One of our relocation specialists will put together some pricing and email it right over to you. Thanks! Movingplace

Question to MovingPlace

from Brynn U. in WI - Wednesday, March 15, 2017

Hello, do you also move boats and motorcycles in addition to cars and personal belongings? Is it possible to combine a load that includes a small car, pontoon boat (on trailer), and two motorcycles cross country (WI to AZ)? Thanks!

MovingPlace Response

Hi Brynn, We can help you with your cars and motorcycles along with your household furniture, but we cannot help you with moving the pontoon boat. Movingplace

Question to MovingPlace

from TERESA C. in CA - Friday, April 22, 2016

My daughter is moving from Aliso Viejo Ca to Bellingham Wa. She has maybe 3 or pieces of furniture like a desk,tomside tables and maybe a file cabinet. She says she will only have 10 small Home Depot boxes. She also needs to move her 2001 Toyota Echo. Need to know how to go about and get a quote if you can do it. Thank you for yiur help.

MovingPlace Response

Hi Teresa, Yes, we service most points in the "lower 48". Judging by the list that you have here, your daughter would probably only need the smallest size on one of the moving trucks. The trucks are 8.5ft wide and 9ft tall with the smallest length that we sell being 4 feet. If you fill out the quote request form and select the studio apartment size, one of our relocation specialists will email you a quote shortly. Thanks! Movingplace

Question to MovingPlace

from Janis S. in AZ - Thursday, March 10, 2016

I only have a 3 cushion sofa and a recliner to move from Az to Tx. Is that possible or is it too small a load?

MovingPlace Response

Hi Janis, While we are much more economical when moving larger shipments, we can handle smaller ones effectively in certain busy "lanes" where we often have moving trucks. AZ to TX is an easy one for us and we should be able to help you with a decent rate on moving a few items. Movingplace

Question to MovingPlace

from Tim H. in IL - Wednesday, January 6, 2016

Do you charge for the space used on the truck? Got a quote from you for 8' of truck space. Don't think I will need more than 6'. based on L x W x H

MovingPlace Response

Yes Tim. We charge based on the amount of space that you use on the moving van. Each moving truck is 8.5ft wide and 9ft tall. The variable is the length. We can quote you any size from 6ft up to 53ft. Movingplace

Question to MovingPlace

from Connie H. in AK - Thursday, December 3, 2015

how much would it cost to send a double size bed, from seattle to arlington virgina? head board, (just short of 6 feet tall) foot board, woven wire fabric support -but no mattress and no box springs.

MovingPlace Response

Hi Connie, If you only have a bed to ship, you may want to check out something like the UPS store. They have a service for shipping one item like that. You really need to have a room of furniture or more for us to make financial sense when ordering space on moving vans. Movingplace

Question to MovingPlace

from Marv T. in UT - Saturday, November 14, 2015

I have 17 small to medium boxes that I want moved from 48309 to 84746

MovingPlace Response

Hi Marv, Our services are best-utilized for moving van shipments of furniture and boxes. If you are just shipping boxes, I would suggest contacting UPS or checking on USPS ground shipments. That will be much cheaper than renting a moving van to ship just a few boxes. Movingplace

Question to MovingPlace

from Karen H. in MN - Tuesday, September 22, 2015

We would like to move a few pieces of furniture from Lebanon PA to Minneapolis MN. Is there a moving options for a few pieces of furniture?

MovingPlace Response

Question to MovingPlace

from Lowell W. in ND - Thursday, May 8, 2014

What if I underestimate the space I need on the moving truck?

MovingPlace Response

Lowell, We always suggest ordering an extra couple of feet on the moving van so that you don't have to cram everything in. That being said, if you need more space on loading day, you can purchase it at the same per-foot rate that you paid for the rest of the space. Movingplace

Question to MovingPlace

from Mary B. in NC - Wednesday, December 18, 2013

How much space on the moving truck should I rent to move 4 rooms of furniture and 30 boxes

MovingPlace Response

A good rule of thumb when you rent space on a moving truck is to figure that each furnished room will use 4 to 5ft of space on the truck. All of the moving vans are 8.3ft wide and 9ft tall inside, so the only variable is the length that you choose for your load. If you call us at 800-876-6839, one of our relocation specialists can guide you in choosing the right amount of space.
