Question to MovingPlace

from Tracy P. in PA - Monday, February 27, 2017

Hi! I need to move my belongings from a 10x15 ft storage unit in Carlisle, PA to my new apartment in Bay St Louis, MS the week of March 20. I will drive my car down. Do you provide the loading/unloading? I can't do it and I don't know anyone here. When we get there, my new neighbors might be able to help, depending which day the truck arrives.

MovingPlace Response

Hi Tracy, We are a self-service mover and provide the truck, fuel, driver, and door to door transport. Loading and unloading is not part of our service. We recommend HireAHelper.com for loading and unloading. They have good rates and a good system for following up to make sure that they are providing quality service. Movingplace

Question to MovingPlace

from Andrea B. in IL - Sunday, July 24, 2016

I am moving from Chicago to Culver City. I don't have anyone to help me unload once I arrive in Culver City so I need to hire movers. I can't leave the moving truck at my complex overnight so would the driver be able to stay while I unload and then leave right after?

MovingPlace Response

Yes, Andrea. That is what the industry calls a "Live Load". The driver will wait with the moving truck while you unload and then leave. There are usually wait time charges associated with this. The first hour is free and then each additional hour that the driver waits is accrues a charge. That cost varies depending on where in the country you are moving. Movingplace

Question to MovingPlace

from Diane H. in WA - Sunday, July 17, 2016

Do you provide moving supplies to secure items inside the trailer? I have packing boxes but not moving blankets, or bungee ropes. I have boxes and packing materials. We do not have livingroom furniture, but do have a number of clothes wardrobes, so it is difficult to estimate our needs. We will be moving into an in-law suite in our son's new home in Kentucky. They do not close until August 15th and we will be away during August. We anticipate a move mid-September.

MovingPlace Response

Hi Diane, For most of our service levels, the moving truck comes to your home empty. It has a loading ramp and a bulkhead wall inside. You load into front (nose) of the moving van and then the wall secures your goods in the truck. There are additional places every 16 inches inside the truck to secure your items, but we do not provide the straps for that. You can purchase moving straps very cheaply at Home Depot and other big box retailers. If you are having trouble estimating the amount of space that you will need, please give us a call and we can walk you through some helpful tips on how to do that. Movingplace

Question to MovingPlace

from Kristin T. in VA - Tuesday, June 28, 2016

Do you have any storage options. Scenario...truck delivered and loaded, held for 2 wks/30 days, truck delivered to destination? If yes, costs associated? Thank you.

MovingPlace Response

Hi Kathy, Because rates change with seasons and zip codes in areas can affect pricing, we do not put pricing for moves out on the forum. You can either give us a call or fill out the quote form on our homepage and we will be glad to put together some excellent options for your move. Movingplace

Question to MovingPlace

from Wendy R. in CA - Wednesday, April 27, 2016

Question to MovingPlace

from Cheryl P. in FL - Friday, March 25, 2016

Can we arrange to load a moving truck, have it driven to N Carolina, and unload the next day?

MovingPlace Response

Hi Cheryl, The answer to your question is yes, if you are going to use the whole truck and live within 500 miles of your destination. If you are sharing a moving truck or only using part of it and we are moving freight on the other part, then the transit will take an extra couple of days. It would probably be a good idea to give us a call with the particulars and we can work out a plan that works in your moving schedule. Movingplace

Question to MovingPlace

from Claire D. in MI - Tuesday, March 01, 2016

Question to MovingPlace

from ShellyAnn H. in CA - Tuesday, February 23, 2016

Moving from Long Beach, CA to Fort Lauderdale, FL... How long would that take?

MovingPlace Response

Hi ShellyAnn, You can usually plan on us travelling about 500 miles per business day. So, a cross country move like yours will take approximately 6 business days. Movingplace

Question to MovingPlace

from Karoline S. in TX - Tuesday, February 16, 2016

I am moving from TX to KY.The apartment complex we live in in TX does not allow any kind of 'pod' or container to be dropped off, a truck (no bigger than the size of the biggest UHaul has to be here and and ready to leave as soon as the loading is done. We do not want to use Uhaul and have to drive ourselves. Do you all have options like this?

MovingPlace Response

Hi Karoline, Yes, we can do what is called a "live load". That simply means that when the driver arrives with your moving truck, he will wait while you load it. As soon as you are done loading, he will leave. A lot of apartment complexes have restrictions like this, so a live load is very common. If it takes you a long time to load, some waiting charges may apply. Please call and speak with one of our relocation coordinators for pricing in your area. Movingplace

Question to MovingPlace

from TIM S. in MO - Wednesday, February 03, 2016

if we move and don't have a place yet how long can we keep our things on the moving truck. Does that cost extra?

MovingPlace Response

We have storage options available for you. The storage costs vary with where you need us to store it and how long you need us to store it. Please give us a call at 800-876-6839 with the details and one of our relocation consultants will promptly help you. Movingplace

Question to MovingPlace

from Mason H. in GA - Tuesday, January 26, 2016

I am moving from Atlanta to San Diego. I don't mind loading all my stuff myself here (as I have friends that can help) , but unfortunately in San Diego I don't know anyone to help. And some things I would need assistance with. Could I load all of my belongings and you guys unload?

MovingPlace Response

Hi Mason, We are a transportation provider only. However, if you need help either loading or unloading, we recommend HireAHelper. They have nationwide labor coverage and a good system for insuring quality of services provided. Movingplace

Question to MovingPlace

from Amanda G. in FL - Tuesday, January 19, 2016

I already have a truck that is loaded and ready to move when we have the closing date. Is there a way to have a driver drive the truck from Jacksonville, FL to Land o Lakes, FL? We would also need people to unload the truck.

MovingPlace Response

Hi Amanda, We provide the truck, fuel, driver, and door to door transport. We are not a driver service and cannot have one of our drivers drive your vehicle. Movingplace

Question to MovingPlace

from Kevin V. in CO - Wednesday, December 23, 2015

I have a two wheel tow behind trailer loaded with all my possessions and have discovered my truck does not pull it safely. I was interested to know if your company could move my trailer WITH all the items loaded on it, from Denver Colorado to Hattiesburg Mississippi?

MovingPlace Response

Hi Kevin, Yes, you can put your loaded trailer inside the moving truck. You will need to check the dimensions on your trailer. Our trucks are 8.5ft wide and 9ft tall inside. Give yourself some leeway when measuring the width as your wheel wells might not fit through the door frame (which shaves about 5 inches off at the door opening. We have places to secure your trailer throughout our moving truck. You will need to have a wrecker come and pick up your trailer to put it inside the moving truck as our ramps will not support the weight of it loaded. Movingplace

Question to MovingPlace

from Louise F. in CO - Thursday, December 17, 2015

About the 3 days to load/unload- Is 3 days to load the most time allowed? Is there a daily charge? Why is it less expensive to send the car on a car carrier separately than send in the truck with furnishings?

MovingPlace Response

Hi Louise, We can give you extra time/days to load and unload. There are charges associated with that, but they are minimal (and vary by location). You can expect somewhere around $50 per extra day. The moving vans that are used to ship household items are not efficient in hauling cars (you can only get 1 car on each truck). If we put your car onto an auto transporter (that holds 8 other cars), we can drastically reduce the cost to ship your car. We can get your car and furniture picked up at the same time on different trucks and help you save money. Movingplace

Question to MovingPlace

from Meranda N. in WV - Monday, May 11, 2015

Are you allowed to go with the driver. I'm trying to move from Clarksburg, WV to Escondido, CA and I'm terrified to get on a plane, I'm also not too experienced with driving so I couldn't drive there myself so I was wondering if that was acceptable to do?

MovingPlace Response

Hi Meranda, Unfortunately, we cannot allow passengers to travel across the country. I am sorry that flying is a scary option for you. You may want to check on taking a train across the country. The pricing for transportation on a train can sometimes be very good and it is actually a pleasant trip. Movingplace

Question to MovingPlace

from Christine R. in NY - Sunday, March 29, 2015

Do you have trucks that have drivers & I have my own movers. How would I go about arranging this

MovingPlace Response

Hi Christine, That is exactly what we do. We are a transportation provider. We bring a moving truck out to your home, you load it (or have someone else load it), we take it to the destination where you unload it. We provide the truck, fuel, driver, and door to door transportation. Movingplace

Question to MovingPlace

from Phil D. in NY - Wednesday, March 04, 2015

So how would it work if I'm moving from NYC to Austin Tx? Do you leave the truck on the street while we move everything inside? Also how long would it take to move?

MovingPlace Response

Hi Phil, When moving from a location that has limited or no parking, we can perform a live load - that is, the driver stays with the truck in front of your home while you load it and then leaves when you are done loading. There are some fees associated with this service depending on where you are located. Please call us at 800-876-6839 and we will work up a price for you over the phone. Movingplace

Question to MovingPlace

from Nancy A. in CA - Tuesday, January 27, 2015

I need to transport four chairs & a couple of boxes from my Dads estate in new jersey to California. They are light weight & easy to move. What is the cheapest way I can do that? They are of sentimental value only.

MovingPlace Response

Hi Nancy, Just select the smallest size when filling out the moving truck quote request form. I would also suggest calling our sales line at 800-876-6839. Our relocation specialists may have some more options for you to consider. Movingplace

Question to MovingPlace

from kat e. in WV - Friday, January 23, 2015

moving from wv to fl; can we use heavy TOTES to move items in? I have stuff packed tight in TOTES with the lids taped with packing tape - I would hate to have to unpack the stuff to put in moving boxes. so, can we use TOTES with lids taped securely shut? thanks

MovingPlace Response

Hi Kat, We provide the space on the moving truck for you to load and unload. How you package the items you load is up to you. Totes are a very popular choice for many of our customers. They are easier to stack and hold more than most boxes. Movingplace

Question to MovingPlace

from Beverly M. in TX - Thursday, January 08, 2015

Can a truck be brought to a storage facility? All my belongings are in storage?

MovingPlace Response

Yes Beverly, we can bring the moving trucks to storage facilities. You should check with the facility manager prior to our arrival as they generally have a designated place that they would like moving trucks to park. Make sure to reserve that space so that you have a place for us to park and don't have that "panic moment" on moving day of trying to find an alternative place to park. Movingplace

Question to MovingPlace

from Nancy Q. in WA - Wednesday, November 19, 2014

How long does it take to transport from Napa California to Mukilteo Washington

MovingPlace Response

Hi Nancy, This will take approximately 3 days. Movingplace

Question to MovingPlace

from Laurie L. in WA - Tuesday, November 04, 2014

We are moving from Bothell, WA to either Victorville, CA or Buena Park, CA. What is the difference in price between those two cities? Do you also have a storage facility available and for how long? Can the motorcycle go inside the truck?

MovingPlace Response

Hi Laurie, We are going to need some more information to provide you an accurate estimate (how much furniture you are moving, appliances, etc..). There will not be much difference in rates for moving from Bothell, WA to either Victorville, CA or Buena Park, CA as they are about the same mileage to each destination. We do have short and medium term storage options available for your move. If you need long-term storage, we would suggest putting your items in a storage facility rather than leaving them on the moving truck. And yes, a motorcycle can go inside the moving van with your other furniture and boxes. Movingplace

Question to MovingPlace

from Katey S. in IL - Saturday, October 25, 2014

Do we need to provide a lock for the truck/trailer? if so what size?

MovingPlace Response

Hi Katey, You do not need to provide a lock for the moving trucks. Each shipment on board the moving van is separated from the other loads on the truck by a bulkhead. That serves as a security divider between your goods and any other shipment. Please note that once we have a household goods shipment on board a long distance moving truck, that truck will not be left unattended in front of another customer's home. So you are safe and secure when moving with Movingplace. Movingplace

Question to MovingPlace

from Paula J. in IL - Wednesday, October 08, 2014

I have only about 10 medium to large cube boxes (at most) plus a trunk. how would this work out

MovingPlace Response

Paula, If you are just shipping boxes (and a trunk), the most economical way to do that would be through UPS. We are more of a household shipper. If you have less than a Studio apartment of furniture, we will be offering too much truck at too high of a price to make economical sense. Movingplace

Question to MovingPlace

from Ashley T. in MA - Sunday, September 07, 2014

I am planning on moving from Leominster, ma to perris, ca and I was wondering when you come pick up the moving van how long will it take for the van to get from Leominster to perris? thank you

MovingPlace Response

Hi Ashley, It is going to take about a week for us to transport the moving truck from MA to CA. There will be some variations to that based on how large your shipment is. To narrow that down, please give us a call at 800-876-6839 and we can work with you to meet your schedule. Thanks! MovingPlace

Question to MovingPlace

from Courtney B. in IA - Tuesday, August 12, 2014

Do we load the trailer the same day that the driver leaves for the new location, or can we have the trailer the day before to load it?

MovingPlace Response

We have options for both. You can have as many as 3 business days for the moving truck to be loaded at your house. Weekends are free days, so you can have up to 5 total days in which to load your moving van. There are a couple of restrictions to this based on service area and the type of moving van being ordered. Please call a relocation specialist at 800-876-6839 to get more information specific to your situation. MovingPlace web team

Question to MovingPlace

from Jeff R. in WV - Thursday, July 31, 2014

What do you suggest if we need to store near destination? It could be several months before house is available.

MovingPlace Response

We have both daily and monthly storage options. The best part about our storage is that there is no handling of your goods. Once you load them onto the moving truck, that is where they stay until you unload them. Less handling means less damage which means a better move. Storage prices vary with where, how much, and how long you need to store. Please give us a call at 800-876-6839 and one of our relocation specialists will help you with pricing for your move.

Question to MovingPlace

from Rachel C. in CA - Friday, July 25, 2014

Are the shipments of household goods and cars insured?

MovingPlace Response

Hi Rachel, We have several different coverage options for your goods while they are travelling on the moving trucks. Each shipment is different depending on the size of the move and the amount of furniture and type of car being moved. Please give us a call at 800-876-6839 and one of our relocation specialists can go over those options in detail. Best regards, Movingplace

Question to MovingPlace

from Carol S. in OH - Saturday, July 19, 2014

I'm moving from OH to CA I have never used a mover before, do you provide boxes? And can I pack some things in Rubbermaid totes?

MovingPlace Response

Hi Carol, We are a self-service mover. What this means is that we bring a moving truck to your home where you load it. We drive it to the destination where you unload it. We provide a loading ramp and bulkhead wall (to help with loading and securing your shipiment), but we do not provide boxes or blankets. You are essentially renting space on a moving van. You can certainly use rubbermaid totes. Those are great for moving! Movingplace.

Question to MovingPlace

from Ron C. in FL - Saturday, July 05, 2014

Are there any restrictions on what can be included in a shipment moved from Florida to Ohio? For instance, can we move a lawn mower and a gas grill?

MovingPlace Response

from TY L. in LA - Wednesday, June 18, 2014

Hello, I wanted to know that if it is possible for my husband and I to be able to have our moving truck leave out a day or two early from baton rouge, la so our items will arrive the day that we get to virgina or do the truck have to leave the same day we do?

MovingPlace Response

Hi Ty, We have some super scheduling options available for your move. On most orders, we can give you up to 3 days to load and 3 days to unload at no additional charge.

from Molla F. in MN - Sunday, June 08, 2014

I am moving to Atlanta at this month end. I have a car and a boat to be moved along with a 2 BR apt. Do you move these and what would be the approximate quote?

MovingPlace Response

We can certainly help you with moving your apartment and car. Boats can be a bit tricky to move. You can load a small boat inside the moving van, but it can be no longer than 12ft and no wider than 6ft. We can also ship canoes and kayaks.

Question to MovingPlace

from Nell H. in CA - Tuesday, June 03, 2014

At any time during the move, will my stuff be removed from the trailer i pack it in??

MovingPlace Response

Hi Nell, We bring the moving truck to your home empty. Once you load your stuff into it, we put up a bulkhead wall that a. secures your goods in the front of the truck and b. separates your goods from the other items we will load on the truck to "fill it out" for transit. Once your shipment is on board, the truck stays in the carrier's possession. It is never loaded or unloaded or left at another location. We have never had a theft claim in the history of Movingplace. Movingplace Web Team

Question to MovingPlace

from Emily B. in NE - Saturday, April 05, 2014

Do you provide storage options? I need to move out of state to one location until my lease starts and then move a couple weeks later. I would need to store my things at a temporary location.

MovingPlace Response

We have several storage options that work in conjunction with your long distance move. We can hold the shipment on the same moving truck for up to 6 months! Make sure you discuss both short term and long term storage options with your relocation specialist when setting up your move.

from Penny L. in FL - Sunday, February 16, 2014

Hi. I need a moving truck brought to my home for me to load. I am moving long distance from FL to CA. Do you guys go that far? How does this work?

MovingPlace Response

Yes Penny! That is what we do. We bring a truck out to your home. You load it. We transport it to your new home where you unload it. The charges are based on the amount of space that you use on the moving truck, so you do not end up paying for empty space like you would with a Pod or another moving truck rental service. We service almost every destination in the lower 48 United States. Please fill out the moving quote form to the right and one of our relocation specialists will promptly email you a price quote. Thanks! Movingplace

Question to MovingPlace

from Jim J. in ND - Wednesday, December 04, 2013

I do not yet have my new job location but I would like to get packed up and moved so I could place the items in storage. Could the items just be kept in Bismarck on monthly storage until I have my new job location? I have quite a few tools and is there any weight limits?

MovingPlace Response

Hi Jim, We have several options for storage available. Please ask your relocation specialist for details on what will work best for your moving needs. Movingplace

Question to MovingPlace

Hi, I have a storage unit, does the truck get dropped off at the unit and for how long? If I started packing in the morning could the truck be picked up and leave the unit the same day?

MovingPlace Response

We can have moving trucks dropped at nearly any location. If you have permission from the storage company, we can leave the moving van overnight (if needed). If you want us to bring the truck in the morning and then leave with it once you have loaded your goods, we can do that also. Just make sure you let your representative know your needs when you make your moving truck reservation.

I plan on moving, but what if I can't close on my new place right away? Can you store my stuff? If so, for how long? Thanks

MovingPlace Response

Our services are direct shipments on long distance moving trucks, so we do not provide long term storage, only a couple of days when it makes sense in the schedule. If you need longer term storage, we recommend putting your stuff into a storage facility at destination so that you can store it as long as needed and access it when you want. It is never a good idea to leave your goods on a moving truck for an extended period of time as they are not designed to be provide that type of protection for your furniture.

Can we share space on a moving truck? We are only moving a small amount of furniture and need to save some money.

MovingPlace Response

That is exactly what the you load they drive moving process is about! Each moving customer gets a private compartment on the moving truck. You load and unload. We provide door-to-door moving services. This type of self-service moving is the most inexpensive and convenient moving option available.

What is the difference between Movingplace and Upack? I have a quote from Upack that is higher than yours, but it looks like you offer better moving vans than they do. What is the difference?

MovingPlace Response

Movingplace offers self-service moving on fully-equipped moving vans. Our moving vans are larger than the Upack freight trucks so we can put more than one customer on each van. Sharing a moving van is how you save significant money on your move

my belongings in las vegas in storage unit, will truck come to that location, time frame is 1st wk of october

MovingPlace Response

We can certainly handle your move in or out of Las Vegas. Because the driver stays with the moving truck during our moves, we can handle pickups and deliveries to storage facilities. Our competitors want to drop their moving trucks overnight, which is a liability that storage facilities do not want to take. Booking your move two weeks in advance is highly recommended as the schedule of moving vans is determined well in advance of the pickups and deliveries.

Question to MovingPlace

from Joe K. in NC - Friday, July 13, 2012

I have my furniture in 3 pods and I need to have it moved to California. PODS wants a lot of money to move my stuff out there. Will you bring one of your moving vans to the PODS facility so that I can unload my stuff from there into your truck? I already have a price from you and your prices for the you load they drive moving is excellent.

MovingPlace Response

Yes. You need to let PODS know that we are bringing a moving truck to their facility and request that they stage your pods so that you can easily move the stuff from the pod to our moving truck. Most of the pods warehouses have a loading dock so that you can walk right into the moving van. If they do not, no worries. We will put out our loading ramps so that you can easily get your stuff loaded onto the moving truck
