The Top Question About Long Distance Moving Trucks

You may have heard that when you hire a team of professionals to handle your long distance move, your things will be packed up and loaded into a shared moving truck. Is this true, or just a myth?

While some moving companies offer “VIP” service for long distance moving customers, this is not standard. Your items will more than likely be placed onto the same 53 foot truck as other peoples’ items and taken to the destination state together, then separated just prior to delivery.

If you don’t want your things placed together with someone else’s, you can talk with your moving company about possibly getting your own rental truck. This will mean an increased price, but could potentially also mean that your delivery date could be quicker and more streamlined.

And, with the right team of moving industry experts, it’s not a problem.
