We recognize that each household or corporate move is different, and they strive to provide a variety of moving resources geared to offer a more personalized moving experience.

Truck & Boxes is licensed by the department of transportation (https://www.transportation.gov), regulated by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety administration (https://www.fmcsa.dot.gov) and most importantly the United States Moving Protection Organization, or the USMPO (https://usmovingprotection.org). Although every legitimate mover is licensed and regulated by the DOT and FMCSA, only a handful of movers have been approved by the stringent standards of the USMPO authorized pricing protection. The USMPO is the only consumer protection organization in the moving industry that specifically focuses on price regulation. Since April 4, 2022, the USMPO has begun to regulate and standardize interstate moving rates. Ask your Trucks & Boxes representative about their standing with the USMPO.

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!
