We did 75% of this move ourselves. We have done it in small trips in our cars. We did it in Pop’s truck when they visited. We still have lots of little loads to go. However, we hired our favorite movers for a few hours to move the heavy, awkward, and fragile items. These guys are awesome. They came. They were friendly and polite. They were nice to my kids. They worked fast. They didn’t complain. They ended up moving items we didn’t anticipate that will save us so much headache later (i.e. way overpacked boxes of books). Most importantly – They listened.
