Default Any state to state movers on here?

Crowley, Tx to Knoxville, TN.... Time frame would be June.

I've been looking at a bunch of different options.... turnkey to load with local help, drive out there myself, and unload with local help..

Anyway, what do you know? Recommendations, etc..

You said moving expenses are covered in previous post(s) as part the hiring package. That means you just call a moving company and let them do the work. Your job is to just be there to let them in the house.

Sounds odd to me.

Yes they gave me a lump sum for the movers and will provide lodging in the city while I'm locating a place. Plus cover misc items that come up.

My nephew's FIL runs his own truck. Seems to be a good company, he's a stand up guy. I can get his information if you'd like.

Definitely use a reputable company, especially if a relo package is footing the bill. I came across some horror stories when doing research for our move back to DFW from Sacramento.

I have been ripped off before by a moving company. Just rent a Uhaul and hire guys to load the truck and unload it.

That's the whole thing. I am looking at prices and trying to figure out where the 5K they're charging comes from and am also reading nightmare stories etc..

I know you pay for turnkey service, but I also know it doesn't matter how slick and shiny their webpage looks, these services hire Labor Ready type folks on both ends for the loading and unloading, and my observation is they are hungover and careless with your shit..

Our move was $10k, including shipping the Mustang, and we did most of the packing. It was double that to have them do the packing, $5k sounds to good to be true cheap, unless ya'll are in a 700 sqft apartment, and all boxed up.

Cardboard alone was over a grand, bought in bulk.

Nah we are going to box everything up and I've got tons of boxes..

I have a 4 bedroom house 2200 sq/ft.. full of everything, hell it'll probably be more and 5K was at the low end... it'll probably be more once it's all done..

All you really care about is the insurance that comes with a big name.

My relocation package from Austin to Dallas was over 20K somehow, I think about half was the 2 months of storage, temp housing and tax assistance.

We had everything packed, but in order to be insured...they literally unpacked everything and repacked it after affixing a tiny number label. That's was the most annoying part...peeling those damn labels off for months. They also cleaned up all of the boxes and organized the house on delivery.

I only knew the price because I had to repay some of it for leaving within the 2 year agreement period. I was pretty impressed with the cost (though the new company paid it off).
