See, they're a free resource I found online, and I've been telling people about them ever since, because, duh - it's free.

It explores all the benefits of hiring a moving company, like the added safety for your stuff, your back, and your home - but it also talks about the drawbacks. Honestly, there aren't many drawbacks, but the price can be a real issue, so they also talk about how you can reduce it, and save some of that cash.

Since moving rates can vary widely based on the size of the load, the distance being driven, and complications like stairways, the guide suggests using a free tool on the website to estimate the rate for a professional service first. This way, at least you'll know what the cost should be, and how much work you're willing to put in to avoid paying it.

So how does it work? Just click here to go to, and then click "Get Quotes."

That will take you to a simple form where you can input the details of your upcoming move, which is then sent to seven top-rated local moving companies. You will receive up to seven totally free, no-obligation estimates, which can be used to choose a service provider, or as a comparison for your DIY move.

Don't assume a DIY move is free though - because that would be a mistake.

The guide includes several important factors that may add to the rate, even for a DIY move, such as hiring a babysitter or pet sitter, taking the day off work, or enlisting help from friends. Even the best friends rarely work entirely for free, and you should expect to be dishing out for food and beverages at the minimum.

How much your friends will eat and drink could become a pretty important factor in your overall cost - and it still doesn't include some key items like furniture pads, a dolly or cart for heavy items, and straps.

Look - I'm not trying to tell you which is cheaper, or better, in any way.

I'm just saying, it's complicated. can make it easier though, with free guides for every occasion, and free estimates for moves anywhere in the USA.
