  • Additional Fees and Services
  • 30 Days of Free Storage

Just so you’re aware, here are all the extra fees (so you can hopefully avoid them):

  • Long-carry fee: Make sure that the moving trucks can get as close to your front door as possible. If movers park over 75 feet away from the door, you’ll need to pay an extra $1 per foot.
  • Stairs fee: How many steps do you climb to get to your apartment? If it’s over ten steps, you’ll need to pay $50 per day.
  • Bulky items: Movers will tack on extra fees for bulky, hard-to-pack items. Owners of bean-bag chairs and pianos, beware.
    Item insurance: Your move comes guaranteed with basic insurance that covers $0.06 per pound. If you’re worried about anything breaking, you can choose full-value insurance that fully covers any items damaged or lost

Tell us if you’ve been in this situation. You have to move out of your place, but there’s a bit of time before you can move into your new place. What in the world are you supposed to do with your stuff in the meantime? Thanks to 30 days of free storage, you can crash on your friend’s couch knowing your stuff is safely tucked away.

The catch is that you can only use the free storage if TrucksandBoxes has space available. Make sure to call ahead if you’re banking on using the free storage.

Trucks and Boxes Moving Experience

TrucksandBoxes should set you up with a fairly comfortable experience. Make sure you ask all your questions when you get your quote so as to avoid any surprises on moving day.

Some folks have had bad experiences where things got confused between TrucksandBoxes and the moving company they brokered. It ended up with too small of a truck and then a $3,000 upsell. No thank you.

Help me with my furniture, please!

Arguably, the worst part of the moving process is disassembling and reassembling all your furniture. (Let’s be honest, you probably lost the little IKEA tools to set up your desk anyway.) You can let the TrucksandBoxes peeps (or whoever they set you up with) take care of all that. It will cost you more, of course, but it’s awesome to know you don’t really need to lift a finger.

TrucksandBoxes makes a lot of sense if you’re a veteran

TrucksandBoxes doesn’t stand out in a big way from other moving companies—unless you’re a veteran. If you are a veteran, and you need to move, you should stop reading this and call TrucksandBoxes right away. With the veteran discount and quality service, you’ll get the best deal.

For everyone else who hasn’t served in the military, you’ll probably be better off going with another moving company. From finding the best long-distance mover or someone for a shorter, local move, we’ve got you covered!
