Tips and Alternative Options
In addition to hiring movers or renting a truck or van, you have alternative options to help you with your move.
Sometimes college students are the best people to hire for odd jobs. They are usually in need of cash, and they are young and strong enough to handle a physically demanding job such as moving furniture. If you happen to know any university students, see if any of them would be willing to take on the job. They are cheaper labor than established companies. However, they may be less experienced, so keep an eye on your breakable items.
If you need to move any special items, such as a piano, it is best to find someone who specializes in moving those items, since traditional movers may not know how to handle the item properly.
Moving to a new location, even with local moves can be quite pricey. However, you often get what you pay for, so if you want your move to run smoothly and easily, you may have to pay a bit more for your movers.
