Moving Company Regulators
Moving artwork and antiques requires professionals who have necessary knowledge and equipment to handle delicate pieces. We do not recommend to cut corners or hire a company that is not specialized in delicate items. However, if the items are not of the high price you can consider packing and moving them yourself.

Moving Dos and Don'ts
Mobile containers are designed to make our of state and international relocation easy and affordable. The whole idea is very simple - you load and unload and the container company manages the logistics.
Some moving companies may offer a flat rate for their packing and moving services. But in general, the total amount of local moves is calculated based on the number of movers and hours worked.
Cost of a Local Move
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.
