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.
PODS Units and Rental Trucks
Some moving companies will not load plants on a moving truck. Plants are too easy to damage. You should prepare and move plants to your new location yourself.
Climate controlled units are more expensive than standard units. You should ask yourself whether you need a climate control unit and it usually depends on the climate and what you are storing.
