We used ABF when we moved from FL to NC. You have to pack and unpack yourself. They do the transporting. It was not as expensive as everyone else. They park the trailer and give you two days to pack and then park it wherever you go and give you five days to unpack. It was very smooth.

when I moved from VA to NC

I packed, hired help to load. drove the penske truck myself. hired help to unload.

that was one of the biggest moves I ever did and it was pretty smooth for me.

driving by myself saved the money, as I didnt have to pay for my flight to fly down to there. there are trucks available with Penske and UHaul where you can tow your car as well. so if you are planning on driving your car, why not drive the truck and it will be cheaper. (Ofcourse, you need to be willing to drive the truck and all the risks assocated with driving.. but am just saying.. )
