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
One of the best ways to save on a move is to get rid of unwanted items before help arrives. Local moving companies and helpers primarily charge by the hour. So why pay more to move unwanted furniture from one home to another.

Rental moving trucks are measured by their overall length. They usually vary from 10 foot all the way up to 26 foot. So how do you decide what size truck is right for your home?
