When planning what to pack and ship in a moving container, consider that the companies provide trailers or containers have restrictions on what they will allow to put in a container.
Non-Allowable Items in Moving Containers
Local moving companies and labor helpers are not permitted to transport their customers pets. So the best way to transport pets is in the car with you.
Moving With Pets
Packing fragile goods for moving is a time consuming, but required process. The proper packing is the difference between your breakables arriving to the new home in one piece or in hundreds of small pieces.
Packing Fragile Items
Most local moving companies and helpers charge for their moving services based on hourly rates. By knowing this, you can do as much as you can to cut down on the time.
Tips for Moving at an Hourly Rate
If you are hiring local movers you need to check if your state requires a license from moving companies, and if yes then verify that company has one. To find this information you should call or visit DOT's website.
