Hi I am just trying to get a mattress moved from Clearwater beach fl to coco beach fl is the possible

Movex Response

Hi Gail,

Unfortunately, we only provide state to state, long distance moving services. You would need to call a local mover in Clearwater to do an in-state move like that.

My move is minimal going from CT to FL. Do you have a minimum weight or fee?

Movex Response

Hi John,

We can move a shipment as small as 4ft of space on a moving truck. The trucks are 8.5ft wide and 9ft tall inside with the 4ft representing the depth of the moving van.

from Michelle P in TX - Thursday, February 18, 2016
I plan to move 2 10x10 storage of merchandise and 1 5x15 storage of merchandise from Hackensack, NJ to Dallas, TX. What size truck would you recommend?

Movex Response

Hi Michelle,

We would recommend about 36ft of space on a moving truck. Our trucks are 8.5ft wide and 9ft tall. That should give you a comparable space in which to load.

Question to Movex

from Patricia P in MN - Wednesday, December 30, 2015
I am moving from Eagan,MN to Hart,MI with about 3 Bedrooms of furniture or less, boxes and 1 sofa, I loveseat, a 3x4 table and 4 chairs, and a 7x4x12 shelf. What kind of estimate would this be?

Movex Response

Hi Patricia,

I would recommend about 18ft of space on one of the moving trucks. You want to consider that everything will not stack squarely, so you should order a little more space than you think you will need so that you have room to work when packing and loading your moving truck.

from Nikki G in CO - Monday, November 16, 2015
Do you ever have extra room on moving trucks that can be rented for smaller items ie: a single sofa or patio set? And how much do you charge for that? Trying to get a few pieces of furniture from NY to CO.

Movex Response

Hi Nikki,

We have space on moving trucks that can handle shipments as small as 4x8ft. If you have some flexibility, you should indicate that when getting a quote and we can piggyback you onto another move and save you a lot of money!

Question to Movex

from Joyce K in CA - Friday, November 13, 2015
I have a couple of rooms of furniture that I want to ship from CA to GA: along with a bath tub and a large light light fixture. How much space would I need on the moving van. Is this feasible?

Movex Response

Hi Joyce,

We can certainly help you with this. We recommend averaging 4 feet per room when you are calculating space, so we would suggest about 10ft on the moving truck for the move that you have described.

from Bobby K in FL - Saturday, August 17, 2013
I need to rent space on a moving van for just a couple of rooms of stuff. I don't need the whole truck. Do you guys handle small moves?

Movex Response

Hi Bobby, we certainly provide moving truck rental for smaller shipments. Each truck is broken down into smaller compartments by bulkhead walls. We can get a space on the moving truck as small as 4ft or as large as the entire truck. If you call us at 800-876-6839, one of our relocation specialists will help you pick the size that is right for you.

Question to Movex

from Charis H in NC - Thursday, June 23, 2011
Is weight ever a factor in determining a price, or is it simply the linear foot of trailer used. I am thinking about renting an entire trailer, and just wondered how to determine how much the load will weigh when it is loaded?

Movex Response

Charis,

We can legally allow up to 30,000# on an entire tractor-trailer. If you are loading household goods, it is virtually impossible to get that much weight onto a moving van. If you have any concerns about weight because you have things other than household goods to load, please call our relocation staff at 800-876-6839 and they will clarify for you.

Question to Movex

from Joanne R in MN - Friday, June 10, 2011
If I reserve 18ft in one of your trucks and end up needing more, how is that handled? Am I charged so much per foot over or am I out of luck?

Movex Response

Joanne,

You are correct in that if you go over on your space, we have a set price per foot that you are charged for the extra space. There are no "gotcha" charges. The only caveat is that extra space is not always available.
