Moving household appliances is a special project of a move. They are bulky and heavy, you can't pack them in a box, or simply unplug and carry onto a moving truck. Most likely you’ll need to hire a professional moving service to get the job done.
You should start planning for the transfer of your pet, as well as for your household belongings, as soon as you know you are going to move. Keep in mind that local helpers and moving companies are not allowed to move pets.

Hiring local day labor is another option to move. They might offer you flat or lower hourly rates, but there are plenty of scam artists out there. Therefore rather than taking the risk of dealing with day laborers that have not much of a track record, it is far better to hire professional movers that have been in the business for years. Another important factor to consider is their reviews.
