I'm getting ready to move to Denver, and I will have a POD to unpack. We've been burned here in Austin getting movers to help us pack boxes and move them into the POD, so we're looking for advice on who to get help us unpack the POD. We just need guys to move boxes and furniture into the storage unit or the apartment, not actually open up the boxes and do that sort of unpacking. Any advice, other than what we can already find on yelp?

And has anyone had any experience at Verve apartments yet? I know it's a brand new building so probably not, but just wanted to find out if there's any rumor about whether it's a good/bad building.

See this thread:

Good moving company? (Wheat Ridge to South Denver)

Which refernces this site:
Moving Help® - Local Movers | Moving Labor Services | U-Haul partner

Find a well reviewed company; expect to pay $50-75/hr for two guys, but don't trust the time estimate, talk to the movers themselves. The good news is unpacking is always faster than packing.

With companies like that you can get just anyone at all - many times someone with no moving experience at all and they will have no insurance or bonding. During my move a couple weeks ago a company like that gave me to totally incompetent guys who scratched up my bedroom set wholly negating any possibly savings and then some There's no real background check on poeple from those companies as well so FYI.

You might want to stick to well known companies who have great moving reps rather than a general labor service if your items are of any value.

For me, this is where the pros really earn their money. When I move my own stuff I always end up with a few nicks, scratches, rub marks, etc and I own the stuff, so who should be more careful than me?

The last time I moved (and hired guys) the only thing that was damaged was something I moved quickly in an attempt to get it out of the way. No walls were rubbed, no corners were hit - I was impressed.

I will send a DM - I have a recommendation for someone great. I used them to move things into my garage in order to stage my house, and then I used them this week to put everything I have in storage. They did an amazing job getting everything into a smaller storage unit than I imagined could ever hold all my stuff and they are very fast too. They work for one of the major companies but also do smaller jobs on their own.
