Let's be honest. Moving is stressful, it sucks, and it's inconvenient. There's so much that needs to be done before the day comes to load up the truck and settle into a new and unfamiliar "home". If it can even be called that right away. If you've ever been to a shrink because of stress or anxiety they'll probably ask you a bunch of questions. Has someone died? did you get fired? ARE YOU MOVING?? That's right. Are you moving? it's that stressful. So what do you do? Hire a moving company of course!
So you're shopping around for quotes and realize "wow...this is a bit much.." well that's why i'm writing this. I've been in the moving business for a while now. I started as a mover, and eventually worked my way up to what my company refers to as a Relocation Specialist. Which basically just means i'm good at helping plan a move. So what can you do to keep a couple more of those Benjamins in your pocket?
