    Default Moving

    hi guys, i'm moving soon and seriously considering hiring movers.

    i don't have much heavy or big stuff really, but am moving from a 2nd floor apartment to a 3rd floor one, neither having an elevator.

    anyone have any experience hiring movers? what's a reasonable rate? (the distance is about a 20-30 minute drive)

    i've also considered doing the packing up, borrowing a truck from a friend, and driving the stuff over to my new place, and just paying the movers to bring it up to my new place.

    what do you think?
    You hem me in -- behind and before;
    you have laid your hand upon me.
    Such knowledge is too wonderful for me,
    too lofty for me to attain.

    I agree with you on not asking friends. When we moved, we hired a small, local company that had very good reviews and excellent word of mouth reviews. Their rates were much lower than a bigger company and sent 4 guys. We had already done a lot of the smaller stuff prior, they did all the furniture, outdoor furniture, heavy boxes, etc. We only moved about 10 miles from where we were and it ran $450. Even without a lot of stuff, movers are insured, they are experienced at packing a truck and wrapping stuff right and basically, it's way less of a headache for you.

    Your alternate idea is also a very good one. It will save a lot of money.
    I like to rock n' roll all night and *part* of every day. I usually have errands... I can only rock from like 1-3.
