How Long it Takes to Transport

The time it takes for your belongings to be delivered depends on many factors. Among these factors are: the time of year, weather conditions, size of your shipment, time required to load and unload, and the direction and distance your shipment is traveling. Small moves traveling great distances usually require no more than 14 days for delivery, and large moves traveling a short distance typically only require several days.

When you meet with your Mergenthaler representative, we will commit to a specific delivery period based on the circumstances of your move.

Because the furnishings of the average household will not fill a van, it is often necessary for two or more shipments to be loaded on the same van. Each shipment is carefully sectioned off from the others, and scheduled so that both clients receive their delivery in a timely manner. With the help of Mergenthaler’s computer-assisted dispatching system, pickup and delivery dates are scheduled according to the origins and destinations of individual shipments on the van, as well as shipment weight.

During transit, you can track the progress of your shipment. Input the first 5 letters of your last name and the order number we assign your move. You can view the estimated arrival date as well as the exact location of your driver.
