Moving FAQs

What is the average cost of a move?

We get asked this a lot, but the answer is that it really depends on what you have. Our low hourly rates are the same seven days a week and are easy to understand. Once we arrive and do our walkthrough, the clock starts and you’re the boss.  If you need us longer than estimated, we’ll only charge you in 15-minute increments (prorated).

The best thing you can do to keep your moving cost as low as possible is to prepare for your move and be fully packed and ready to go on move day (see the answer below about how to prepare).

We have been in the business of moving people since 2012 and have successfully done more than 40,000 moves.

What’s included in my move?

  • Moving truck including drive, fuel, and mileage 🚚
  • Furniture disassembly and reassembly (we bring the tools) ✅
  • Wrapping and padding to protect your items ✅
  • Unloading and unwrapping everything in your new home ✅
  • Professional trained movers with great attitudes and friendly smiles 😄

How can I reserve my move?

To secure a slot for your move, we require a refundable deposit of $100.

In case you need to cancel or reschedule, we kindly request a minimum of five (5) days’ notice. This allows us to find a replacement for your reserved spot and accommodate your booking at a more suitable time. Rest assured, if you provide us with the required notice, your deposit will be fully refunded.

When do I pay for my move?

Payment in full is due upon completion of your move when signing out your movers. We accept credit cards (3% processing fee), debit cards (3% processing fee), or cash.

How much should I tip my movers?

Our movers often receive gratitude from customers in the form of tips, typically ranging from 10% to 20% of the total bill. While tipping is not obligatory, it is genuinely valued as moving is undoubtedly a challenging task. You have the option to add the tip to your credit card payment or provide it in cash at the conclusion of the move.

In case tipping is not feasible for you, one of the kindest things you can do for your crew is to leave us a review on Google, Yelp, or Facebook. It means the world to us!

Will my movers take a lunch break?

Many movers prefer to bring their own lunch while working. However, some moving crews choose to make a stop during their journey to the next location. In either case, if the crew is taking a break then they will clock out for the duration of their break, and the time spent on the break will be deducted from your final charges as shown on your invoice.

How does professional packing work?

We provide comprehensive packing services at a straightforward hourly rate. Whether you require assistance with packing a few rooms or your entire home, including delicate items like artwork and glassware, we’ve got you covered. Our skilled team can handle everything, from the kitchen to clothing, to keep your belongings safe and secure for the move. Just ask one of our team members for a packing quote.

If you decide to pack yourself, please kindly ensure that all your items are appropriately packed in sealed boxes and ready before the moving crew arrives on the designated move day. This will help keep your items safe and your moving costs low.

Does your moving company have insurance?

Absolutely!! Obtaining insurance in this industry can be quite a challenge, leading to many moving “entrepreneurs” operating without coverage. However, we are fully licensed and insured in accordance with all state and federal regulations. A copy of our certificate of insurance is included in every moving quote.

In Texas, movers are strictly regulated by both the TxDMV and the Texas Department of Insurance. For your reference, our TX DMV number is 009807157C. 🚚💨

We also provide the Texas DMV-mandated valuation protection of $0.60 per pound for any belongings that may get broken, lost, or damaged during the moving process.

How does submitting a damages claim work?

In the unfortunate event that something is damaged, Mustang Moving has a simple claims process. We ask customers to initiate a claim within seven (7) days of delivery of the item(s) and provide any additional information requested by Mustang in a timely manner to facilitate the claims process.

To initiate this process, please submit your claim to

Please include all of the following information when submitting a damages claim:

  1. Photos of the Damage(s) (make sure to include a photo of the whole item as well & photos of any identifying labels with make and model information)
  2. Description of Damage(s) (summary description of the nature of the damage and how it occurred to the best of your knowledge).

Please keep in mind that any claim compensation will be based on the damages policy governing all of our moves that you accepted as part of your moving process. We do not provide full replacement value coverage, and damages claims are limited to the standard TX DMV required coverage of $0.60/pound.

The review process can take up to two weeks from the time we’ve collected all the information. Under Texas law, we are required to resolve every moving claim not later than 90 days after receiving it. However, we usually work much faster than that.

We appreciate your patience and we’ll work to resolve your claim as quickly as possible.

Do I need to take items out of dresser drawers before a move?

The safest answer is yes. This is especially important in the following cases:

  1. The contents of the drawers are unusually heavy;
  2. The piece of furniture is not very strong/stable and there’s a risk of collapse during the move (like IKEA furniture); and/or
  3. The contents are fragile/delicate or valuable (like jewelry, heirlooms, etc.)

If none of these apply and you prefer to leave the items in drawers, that is OK.

If you have a specific piece you’re worried about or aren’t sure how to handle, feel free to contact us and one of our moving specialists will help you out!
