This. I hired movers that packed and moved my stuff the last couple times I moved.

I no longer help other people move. The last time I did so. I showed up and my friend hadn't even packed. Never again.

Movers are the best money anyone can ever spend. It's incredible how quickly some of those guys can load and unload boxes, furniture, etc. Will never do it myself again.

That's BS right there!

Big +1 on movers. We started by having them do just the big stuff handful of (local) moves ago, but the last two have been over a greater distance, so we had them do everything. Money very, very well spent.

For you guys who have paid someone to pack the boxes, what's the premium like compared to just having them move stuff? I kicked around the idea of having them pack boxes during the recent move, but I never committed enough to really look into it.

I only saw the statement for tax purposes, think it was around 3k all in for an interstate move. No clue what just the moving part would have cost.

you can buy your own garment moving boxes. people even sell them used (like on craigslist). When I moved the movers used those boxes exclusively (because you can jam like 100lbs into them and then stack them) and gave me a rate (something like $20 a box) and they were brand new. I stupidly just recycled them not knowing that I could've sold them on craigslist for just as much easily.

I have like ten of those from my last move. Folded 'em all up and shoved 'em under the stairs in the basement. Gold Jerry, gold!

We recycled most of the normal boxes. Had a stack about five feet high laid flat and enough packing paper to fill about ten gigantic boxes. Nothing if not thorough, those movers. Almost nothing got damaged.

Last couple times I moved I just rented a truck and hired a set of guys to load it and then a different set to unload it at the destination. Cheaper then a full moving service and I prefere to pack my own things. It's a good time to go through all your old shit and cut out all the crap you don't really need.

When we moved two years ago we did a month of slowly moving over certain things, like the wine collection (try moving 500 bottles of wine and keeping track of where they go back in the cellar), but just boxed up most stuff and hired a local mover to get all the boxes and all the big stuff. Having three young husky guys move my wine cellar for me? Priceless.

Did the young husky guys make you feel fizzy down in your basement? mwink[1].gif

I didn't do that last time around and I have so much stupid shit lying around now. Things that I hauled around in college "in case" but haven't used in ten years.

If nothing else, I need to purge the hell out of my wardrobe. Too many thrift finds that are nice enough but never get worn.

I don't have much stuff so I'm OK with getting a U Haul and asking a friend or two for help. Honestly, I could handle everything on my own except for the couch, chair, and bed.

Couches and chars are for people who don't know what it be.

I am working in the office all day today, fear that I shall have trouble acquiring the nutriment that will sustain my efforts (Easter holiday of closed businesses).

If nutriment is required should purchase tuna submarine sandwich at James ("Jimmy") John's.
