I recently moved to a new state. The last time I made a significant move, everything I owned fit in the trunk of my car. Five years later, I had a house full of my family heirloom antique furniture and a kitchen worth of appliances. Moving was now officially a whole new ballgame. I needed help moving and I started calling around to long distance movers.
I asked around before hiring movers and was given a variety of advice. When I spoke with referred long distance movers I found them to be more costly than I had hoped. Instead, I decided to learn about the pods I keep hearing so much about. A friend of mine had recently used pods for an international mover from Maryland to El Salvador and even with the distance she had a very positive experience with them.
Financially, pods seemed like the best option. But I knew I wouldn’t be able to move all that heavy furniture by myself and that i needed to hire movers. I found several local companies reviewed online and found a variety of local movers who were very affordable and have good reviews. I asked a few of the movers to put in bids and chose one.
I was surprised how smoothly the big move went. The pods were dropped off and picked up on time. The movers showed up, worked quickly and packed everything for me really well. Nothing was broken or damaged when I arrived at my new home. I had previously worried about that as my family heirloom furniture is obviously irreplaceable. Even the second set of movers I hired in my new city were great. The movers did a good job all around. I won’t change anything about this plan for my next big move, if there is one.
