The Truth About Moving Companies

Moving company reviews, prices, facts and protips.

Get Moving

The Alternative: Moving Labor

Moving? Instead of the traditional method of calling up a moving company and having them sell you all their services, you might want to check out movers who offer loading and unloading services. They're always available to carry a heavy couch down four flights of stairs or to show up and unload that gigantic moving truck you just drove across three states. As the unsung heroes of your big weekend, local moving labor crews near you will ensure a smooth moving day that won't break the bank.

Moving Container Companies

As the new kids on the block, moving container companies bring new transportation options to the moving game. You've probably seen the PODSĀ® and 1-800-Packrat shipping containers sitting in driveways around your neighborhood. But have you used one to move yet? Imagine saving the money you'd spend on moving yourself without having to drive that beast-of-a-moving truck.
