I've check Craigslist and found several companies that will do loading and unloading of rental trucks for what I consider very reasonable fees. Can anyone give me a recommendation based upon one you've used? I'm mainly asking about smaller companies since I am only needing help unloading a 16 ft. rental truck in the Sandy Springs area.

Thanks

I don't know about THAT. But I have used 2 Men and a Truck on 2 separate occasions and been happy. The first time it cost $500 and the second $1200 because it took 8 hours....

See, I find them very expensive for some reason or maybe I'm just po. There were several companies that charged a flat rate of say 2 men for 2 hrs for $150 or something similar. If I knew the area better I'd probably just go find me some day laborers to do it.

There was a time I thought that was expensive, too. But, after 4 moves in 2 years I couldn't BEAR the thought of doing it all myself again....so it was worth the cost to me.

Do-it-yourself and help from friends can be hazardous too. If your friends damage your stuff, they're not insured. More rarely, there can be health concerns. We always used movers, and my husband wriggled out of helping friends move for years, even sometimes offering $$ to help with the cost of movers, because moving stuff always made him feel like throwing up, even though he's a hearty-looking guy. His friends thought he was a coach potato (true) who needed to get out there and get fitter. Around age 50 he was very belatedly diagnosed with a bad case of HCM. That's the heart condition that causes student athletes to drop dead. It's a good thing he was so adamant about listening to his body all those years, because moving stuff could literally have killed him. He's now a coach potato on doctor's orders.

OK, so not everyone has a tale this dramatic. But we believe in leaving carrying the heavy stuff to the pros.

We used a company called Yadco Services. 4 guys for around 3-4 hours unloaded two PODS full of stuff and distributed it all over the house- $300. We were very happy with the service and with the guys- very courteous.

Do you know if they service worldwide or just the Atlanta metro area?

check with U-Haul. Here in Tampa they offer that service. They load, you drive and then they provide unloaders at your destination. I've seen that that do that in other places too. I'm sure that in as big a place as ATL it must be available. It could depend on which U-Haul location You use.

They're a small local company- I don't think they go outside of the Atlanta metro.
