OneWayTrucks.net - Frequently Asked Questions           

What is a short haul move?
This is a move that is less than 450 miles. Make sure to inquire with your moving company as you may have to pay long distance charges even for short haul moves.

What is a local move?
This usually refers to moves that are less than 100 miles and within the same state.

What is an intrastate move?
This refers to a move of more than 100 miles within the same state.

What is a re-weigh?
Depending on the type of estimate you obtained, your goods may be re-weighed once they have been loaded on to the moving truck or van. In this case, your moving charges will be based on the re-weighed amount.

How should I pack breakable items such as glass, crystal or china?
Make sure you choose a container that has a sturdy lid and room for lots of cushioning. Place a 2-3 inch layer of crushed paper on the bottom of the box and then wrap each item individually with a soft material for protective padding. Pack the heaviest items first followed by lighter ones and use crushed paper to fill in any empty spaces in the box. After sealing the box with tape, mark it "FRAGILE" and list the contents.

What is freight service?
Freight service is cheaper than a full-service move because movers transport your items to your destination and leave them at the doorstep of your new home. All your items must be boxed in advance, and movers won't wrap individual pieces of furniture.

Do you have any tips to help my move go more smoothly?
We suggest making a detailed checklist of all the tasks you need to complete before your move. Separate the checklist into things to take care of a few months before the move, 1 month before, 1 week before and then on your actual moving day. A checklist will minimize the risk of you forgetting to take care of an important detail.

How long do I have to inspect my belongings for lost or damaged items after the move?
You generally have 60 days to perform this inspection and notify your moving company of any problems.

What is full-value coverage?
If you purchase this type of coverage, your moving company will either replace a damaged or lost item with an article of similar kind and value, pay you for the replacement cost, repair the item or pay you the cost of any necessary repairs.

Will my moving company have extra packing materials?
Most moving companies will provide you with extra materials during the day of the move for an additional cost.

Can my moving company store my items temporarily?
Some moving companies will temporarily store your items in a safe storage facility. However, you have to pay for any warehouse valuation coverage, final delivery charges from the warehouse and any storage charges.

What is a short haul move?
This is a move that is less than 450 miles. Make sure to inquire with your moving company as you may have to pay long distance charges even for short haul moves.

What is an extra pickup?
Most moving companies will charge you extra to make any stops to pick up or deliver additional items from anywhere other than your origin and destination.
