A great amount of stress can be brought on by attempting to move yourself but it can easily be remedied by hiring Professional Movers. Incorrectly packing your belongings or improperly lifting heavy furniture is not only back for your back and wallet, it’s an inefficient use of your time. Experience counts for everything in this case as a knowledgeable packer/mover will be far more prepared than you are. Search the web and see which local moving company suits your needs. Some offer real bargains but be clear on what is included and excluded when you ask for a quote. Also, clear on how they charge you and which option is most appropriate for your unique move. Generally, hourly or mileage rates work better for local moves but flat rates save you money for long distance moves. Finally, whichever van line you choose, verify that they’re accredited by local and state authorities as well as the BBB.
