Move Some Stuff Yourself

Some people like to move some items themselves, like clothes, dishes, pictures, CDs, small plants, small mirrors, food supplies, jewelry, any personal items you would feel better about controlling yourself.

If you follow traditional lines of thinking, selecting your mover is a science. This thinking identifies a plan that can be reduced to tasks and simply carried out. For example, all the big companies say, make sure you get three bids. That’s because they value their elaborate bid process more than the actual move. And we all know that bids have all sorts of caveats that provide the mover with the right to charge extras.

Another example is the recommendation that you check the Department of Transportation for legitimacy of the operation. This scientific approach results in the amazing statistic that over 27% of all moving vans with a man and trailers in operation in the Australia failed their inspections the first time.

The point is that you can’t select a mover scientifically. You have to talk with the people that actually will do the move, not some salesman or office person who makes up quotes.
