Once the items are loaded on the truck, are they taken off/put on other trucks before arriving at destination?
When we bring a moving truck to your home, it is empty. You load starting at the very front and work your way back. Once you are done loading, a bulkhead wall is installed so that your stuff is secure behind it. That is where it stays! We do not offload your goods at a warehouse or put them onto another truck.
1. do you provide moving blankets to wrap furniture?2. the furniture I have to move is in a storage unit. we could probably load the van in an hour or two. is drop off and pick up in the same day (within a few hours) possible?
Hi Elaine,We only provide moving blankets when you rent an entire 53 foot moving van. For the smaller shipments, we currently do not provide them.We do have options for a same day drop off and pick up and we perform moves in and out of storage facilities on a daily basis, so are familiar with the challenges around moving with limited access.
I would like my household goods moved and storage in Memphis until I either buy or rent, do you have a local storage facility to store my property month to month?
Hi Tracy,We do have storage options for you, both monthly or daily. With storage, we leave the household goods right on the same moving truck on which you loaded them and hold them at the destination trucking terminal. The trailers are locked up on a secure lot and delivered back out when you are ready for them.
Since it says furniture. Does that include like dishes and other house hold items. For a 2 bedroom house.
Hi Lesley,Yes, even though we may say “furniture”, we mean everything that would be included in a normal household move. We also can help with office/commercial, long-distance moving as well.
I am.moving from brewster, ny to Brooksville, fl can you tell me for 2-3 rooms and as soon as possible to be able to move
Hi Lisa,We service areas 5 days a week. We generally need about a 10 day notice to get you on the schedule, but we can often service a move the very next day. The best way to check availability of moving trucks is to give us a call at 800-876-6839. We can quickly give you the schedule for the next available truck and help you book it if you would like to.
Hi,We have an SUV and Trailer that we would like driven from our offices in Foxboro, MA to our other office in Columbus, IN. So, I’d like to hire a driver… Is this something your company can help with? If so, could you send me the rate. We would pay for hotel and flight back (I can look up quotes if needed for you).Thank you,Melanie
Hi Melanie,We only provide driving services for moving trucks that we provide. We get this question a lot and it is impossible to insure a driver that is driving a non-DOT certified truck that is provided by a third party. The only way to find a driver to do something like that is to post it on Craig’s List. I am not so sure that I would be comfortable with that personally, but it is really the only option as no company does what you are asking.
You bring it, we load. What if you need 30 days storage inbetween b4 delivery? O RYou bring it, we load, you take to destination, but need 35 days to unload? (Its because of actual move in date)
Hi Tracy,We have options where we can leave your stuff right on the moving van and hold it at our secure terminal for up to a couple of months of storage. Our pricing is the best in the industry for moving and storage. Pls indicate when you fill out our quote form how many days of storage you might need and we will email pricing to you.
Can you handle moves across the border to Canada? Specifically California to British Columbia? Thanks.
Hi Brian,We have a link at the top of this page for International moving. We recommend our friends at UPakWeShip.com. They handle all of our inquiries for international moves.
Hi Elizabeth,You need to drain the fuel from any motorized vehicle going onto the moving truck. You do not have to remove the gas tank, just the gas from it.
We have a 26ft bumper pull trailer that will be loaded with off-road vehicles. We need this transported from Cass City, MI to Desert Center, CA between May 8th & 9th. It will then be transported back to MI the 10th or 11th. Please let me know if your company could assist with this transport. If so, please provide a quote for this service. Thank you and I am looking forward to hearing from you soon!
Hi Griselda,We provide long distance moving services on moving trucks, we do not have towing services for other peoples’ trailers. Sorry!
Hello! We are in the midst of moving a small two bedroom apartment with not much furniture. We also have a car. We would rather not drive the moving truck and car down, but would rather have someone drive the truck for us and we drive the car. My concern is we live in an apartment building downtown, and thus we can only really use the loading dock for one day to load the truck with nowhere else to park it for longer. Also, we have a small child so driving from Oregon to California will take a few days and I am concerned if we hire someone to drive the moving truck they will not be able to guarantee a specific day to meet us in California and thus may beat us there. Any thoughts?Thanks, Brett
Hi Brett,We provide the truck, fuel, driver, and door to door transport. We do not provide drivers for other peoples’ rented trucks. We will transport your car on a large auto transporter (the big trucks that carry 7 or 8 cars at a time). As for travel timing, we can arrange to have the truck delivered on the day that you want. If there is a big delay, we can get you daily storage on the moving truck at a very affordable price.
Hi Latosha,We only do long distance moves (state to state moving).
I want to move my furniture from Fairborn Ohio to Russellville ARI want to know the price and available days you can help me with
Hi Thamer,We do not quote prices for long distance moving on the website as they change seasonally. If you call us at 800-876-6839 or fill out the quote form on this website, we will be happy to put together some rates for our you load, we drive service and email them to you.
I have a bedroom set (furniture) no car included to move to LA California, is it possible, will it be picked up at my location? Can it be received by someone in California since am not traveling with along?
Hi Lydia,Yes, we can provide a truck for long distance moving for just about any location. We bring the truck to your home where you can have up to 3 days to load it. We then transport it to your new home where you have up to 3 days to unload it. If you need us to release the shipment to a friend or relative, you just need to let us know so that we can arrange to do so. Thanks!
Hi Lori,We can help you with that move. Please fill out our quote request form and one of our relocation specialists will email pricing to you right away.
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.
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.
My residential area does not allow detached trailers, pods, or relocation cubes to be in the road. We do not have space to accommodate any of these options otherwise. Does the moving van used by Moving Place stay connected to the trailer during loading?
Hi Bridgette,In that type of situation, we can do what is called a “Live Load”. A live load simply means that the driver is going to stay with the truck attached to the trailer while you load. Once you are finished loading, the driver will immediately leave. There are some fees associated with this service depending on where you are moving from and to. Please contact us at 800-876-6839 and we can look at your locations and help figure out pricing for your long distance move.
We are moving from Circle Pines MN. To Spokane WA. 2 bedroom House plus Tools, Riding Mower, ATV. Do you provide ramps. Thanks Mike
Hi Mike,Yes, we do have loading ramps available for you to use.
Hi Bill,We do have storage available. We normally leave the shipment on the truck where you load it and keep it on a secured parking lot. When you are ready for your goods to be delivered, we bring the truck out and drop it off for you to unload. Storage is generally charged by the day and the rates are super inexpensive.
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?
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.
