DIY Packing, Loading, Transporting and Unloading

Sometimes the required labor of moving your own furniture and renting the necessary equipment to transport is not feasible. Whether it is physical or time constraints, your circumstances may require someone else do the leg work for you.

Consider Weight and Space

Moving companies who base their services on weight can be tricky. Do you know how much your king sized bed actually weighs? Choosing a moving service that charges based on space allows you to properly gauge the overall cost, which more often times than not, you will find as the cheapest option for moving furniture long distances.
