Whether you are relocating locally or out of state, you have several moving service choices. While full-service movers, labor helpers and do-it-yourself are the preferred options for local moves, self-service has become very popular for cross-country moves.
Types of Moves
Local moving companies provide quotes based on the hourly rate and some quote a flat rate based on a size of your move. These types of moving quotes are reasonable, but it also depends on a few variables.
Generally, there are three alternatives to consider when it comes to a residential move. They are; hiring a professional mover, renting a moving truck and doing everything yourself or moving containers.
