Question to Movex

from Jorge M in RI - Wednesday, September 1, 2010
What percentage higher or lower is your rate compared with U Pack and Budget Van Lines?

Movex Response

Jorge,

Movex should be the most cost-effective of the three. If you have a better price from a competitor, send it to us and we will match it at the very least. Please note also that Movex is the only self service mover to provide service on air-ride vans equipped with furniture blankets, loading ramps, tie-down straps, and dollies. The others cost more and give you less.

Question to Movex

from deborah R in GA - Tuesday, July 28, 2009
my son needs to move a studio apart from Washing DC to Alpharetta Ga what would the costs be and sell me on Movex isteod of Door to Door why would I use you instead?

Movex Response

Deb,

There are benefits to both systems. Your selection should be based on the need. For both services, you will provide the loading and unloading. Movex is going to provide a fully-equipped professional moving van that will have furniture blankets, loading ramps, a dolly, and tie-down straps. The transport will be smoother since we will not be handling your furniture using forklifts and shipping it on flatbed trucks like Door-to-Door. If you have stuff that will ride well and not be prone to damage, DTD might be your best choice. I am not sure about their pricing, but we generally are cheaper than they are.

With Door-to-Door, you will probably have crates sitting in front of your sons apartment for a couple of days. This might be a challenge with the apartment manager. With Movex, we will wait while he loads so that you don't have to deal with that issue.

We would love to have your business and think that our service is superior. However, door-to-door has a good reputation as well.

Do you rent a Dolly?

Movex Response

Jay,

All of the moving trucks that Movex provides are equipped with furniture blankets, loading ramps, tie-down straps, and a dolly. All of that is included in our price! Don't be fooled by other self-service movers that are just bringing out a freight truck with no equipment!

Question to Movex

from Morgan G in CA - Friday, April 10, 2009
Hi, what happens if I reserve 16 feet and I only end up using 13 feet? Am I refunded any amount? Also, if a company providing the same service, but they have a price difference of $300, do you price match? And, do you match an offer that includes $15,000 in Name-Perils Insurance? Sorry for so many questions. This is our first time using a service like this. Thank you, Morgan

Movex Response

Morgan,

If you order 16ft and only end up using 13ft, you still pay the exact, guaranteed price that we quoted you for the 16ft. BEWARE, the companies that refund space are FREIGHT COMPANIES. They will load all kinds of junk in the truck with your furniture (anything from charcoal to garbage bags).

Movex prides itself on being the most competitively priced moving option available. If you have a company that is offering air-ride vans, furniture blankets, loading ramps, tie-down straps, and a dolly as part of their service, we will match any competitors price. If it is a freight company that you are comparing us to, we cannot match prices because the service is vastly different.

Question to Movex

from Tara J in MD - Friday, January 9, 2009
I recently found out that when you move with a full-service mover they co-mingle (put your belongings with other peoples) your possesions and these companies have to unload your stuff a something called a hub, then repack to send to the final destination. How are your services different?

Movex Response

Tara,

This is a great question, especially since we have a great solution. With Movex, everyone gets a separate compartment on the moving van. We only make direct shipments, so your goods are not unloaded at a hub or mingled with another customer's furniture.

We are the safest, fastest, and cheapest option for moving.

Question to Movex

from Marsha R in AZ - Saturday, September 22, 2007
We are relocating to the Ft.Walton Beach area and were looking into some possible POD or crate type moving options. We are also concerned with whether or not you have local storage capabilites so that we might have convenient access to our goods. Thank you, Marsha

Movex Response

Marsha,

We currently do not offer a POD type service. We offer door-to-door transportation on moving vans. The customer provides the loading and unloading. Most people in your situation find that it is much more economical to use Movex for their transportation from state to state and then store their goods in a mini-storage at destination.

Question to Movex

from David N in NV - Tuesday, September 18, 2007
We are planning to move 2 rooms of furniture from NV to FL (Miami) by the least expensive way. We would like to do our own packing. Do you have a shipping container or pod?

Movex Response

David,

We actually do not provide containerized shipping. We have found that the safest and easiest way to move your household goods in on a moving van. So, we provide our service using fully-equipped moving trucks (with furniture blankets, loading ramps, dollies, and tie-down straps). The moving trucks that we use are made for the type of shipping that you are doing.

Question to Movex

from Tera B in CA - Monday, August 13, 2007
I know you provide the tie-downs and moving blankets, but I cannot find on the site *how many*. I am mainly concerned about the number of moving blankets that will be available for the move. Thank you

Movex Response

Tera,

The moving trucks are generally equipped with 3 blankets per foot (or 150 for the entire truck). 3 per foot is usually just the right amount to pad customer's goods. Remember that NONE of Movex's competitors offers furniture pads, loading ramps, dollies, or tie down straps. Using Movex is the best way to move.

Question to Movex

from mike S in PA - Thursday, August 2, 2007
I currently have 2 PODS (8x8x16 each) packed, and being stored. The township I'm moving to won't let me park the PODS on the street, and I don't have a driveway. Can you go from PODS to my new house? Coordinating time with PODS can be an issue.

Movex Response

Mike,

You would need to move your furniture from the POD into our truck. We could then transport the goods to your home and wait while you unload. This is a good question for others to see. Remember that if you are using PODS and containerized movers you might have difficulty with parking regulations.

1. how long can I rent a container? 2. how many containers can I rent? 3. Is there a weight limit on the containers?

Movex does not provide container service. We provide door-to-door tranportation on moving trucks with the customers providing the loading and unloading.

We can give you up to 48 hours to load the moving van. We have any size up to 53ft. The weight limit on each moving truck is 30,000#.
