A good and reputable mover can make your move less stressful!
Ask yourself these questions.
Do I need a large mover or will local movers work for me?
How do I select the best mover and get the best deal?
Can a cut costs if I move myself yet still keep the stress level down?
Good questions to begin the process. Let's take a look at each.
Is your move local, maybe across town or is it out of state? This helps determine the size mover that will meet your needs. There are many very good local movers and even local "FIREHOUSE MOVERS" to consider. For out of state moves, it may be best to look at your larger national movers.
Most movers will give you free bids on moving your household goods. Take the time to compare mover's services and when possible read customer reviews that may be posted on web sites. Reduce your selection down and start getting those bids.
A great way to cut costs for a move is to pack yourself. Today you can fine a large selection of resources for packing materials including boxes, tape and padding. Don't forget there may also be local packing help as well.
Start your new job with as little stress as possible

Be sure to keep all receipts from your move all together and in a secure place.
Some states allow for tax deduction on all or part of your relocation expenses.

Help make the move easier for the family by finding out as much about the area prior to your move, interesting places, museums, points of interest, etc.
