There comes a time in life when every homeowner needs to cross the bridge from renting a U-Haul moving truck and roping a couple of buddies into helping with the heavy lifting to hiring a qualified moving company. If you've accumulated any amount of furniture and household goods, it's probably a good idea to consider using the services of a reputable moving company. If you are making a local move, check with your family and friends to see if they can recommend a good company. If you're moving long distance, visit the Federal Dept. of Transportation's Web site for a list of licensed inter-state carriers. And whether you're moving locally or long distance, you should get estimates from at least three moving companies.
