Moved My Stuff For Less

Posted by lucky_12 (My Page) on

When I need to have furniture or appliances moved I usually rent a truck and pay someone to help. But recently, I looked on line for a mover and found this nationwide web site where movers bid on the moving job you have. I was skeptical but took the plunge. In less than 24 hours, I accepted a movers bid and my stuff was moved for less than what it would have cost me to do it myself.

A link to the website might be nice for the rest of us.

I don't know how to "link" I used

RE: Moved My Stuff For Less

Here is the link.

Here is how it works, Lucky 12.

When you go to the dialogue box where you can post a message, under that box is a small one called, 'Optional link URL' where you can write the name of the website. When I tried to do it beginning with "www", my post was rejected until I began with the "http" part.

Under that box is another, 'Name of the Link' where you can describe it.

I've moved 4 times in 6 years. The last move involved consolidating 2 homes (1 3k sf and 1 1800 sf) into one, so it was really 2 moves. It ended up being our cheapest move because we hired movers who only charge by the hour. I boxed up everything I could, staged it neatly in the garage, and the complete move only took a few hours. Putting boxes on a dolly and rolling it to the truck was a snap, so the only real "time" suck was the heavy furniture. All told it was barely over $1k.

Very helpful, Lucky 12. I'm clearing out an estate and DD wants some things (including a lawn tractor) but she lives out of state. Sending her the link. Just might be the way to go. Thanks, Sandy
