Common Moving Questions

What forms of payment can I use to pay for my move?

We accept payment via cash, check, major credit/ debit cards (MasterCard, Visa, etc.), and Paypal.

When do I pay for my move?

You don't have to pay for your move until the job is complete! When your move is done, the team leader for your move will go over the bill with you and accept payment for the move.

Do I have to rent my own truck?

No, you don't! While many of our customers choose to rent their own moving truck or enclosed trailer, we love to provide the vehicle for your move at our normal hourly rate. Note: When CMC provides the vehicle used to transport your item(s), there is a minimum charge of two hours.

If I do rent my own truck, how do I know which size to get?

  • 12 ft truck- perfect for 1 bedroom and loft apartments without much to move.
  • 16 ft truck- a great option for 1-2 bedroom apartments and smaller 1 bedroom houses
  • 22 ft truck- best for 3 bedroom apartments or bedroom houses
  • 26 ft truck- best for full-sized homes (3-4 bedrooms)

Can CMC's movers drive a truck that I rent?

Unfortunately, liability law prevents our movers from driving vehicles rented by our clients. If you're not comfortable driving a large moving truck, let us take care of it! We can provide you with a truck for a flat hourly rate of $40/hr.

How many movers should I hire for my move?

An average move can be completed with 2 movers, while for larger jobs you might prefer 3 or 4 team members to help with your move. We can help you choose the right number of movers when making your reservation.
