Default Re: Moving containers

We used a Uhaul 26' when we came down and saved mucho dinero. Although we chose to do some packing I used an internet labor connection to get some help loading and unloading.

The web site is :

We had two guys help load the truck that were great. I originally engaged them for 4 hours but that stretched to 7 hrs. No problem, just a few extra bucks. They were actually professional movers moonlighting for some extra money. Had lot's of good tips on packing and wrapping and nothing was broken.

At this end we had two guys that drove from Tampa to do the job. In both cases they arrived promptly as scheduled and were very professional and handle the goods very carefully.

The broker can provide people nationwide. WELL WORTH THE MONEY!!

I researched the pods, UPS, and ABF but found them to be expensive as compared to the truck option. We would have needed two PODS at about $5,000. We did the truck (From New Hampshire) for around $2300 including gas plus around $500 for the labor. The truck was brand new and very easy to drive, automatic, etc.. Made good speed on the highway.
