I have battered my brains reading all of the horror stories about long distance movers.

Does anyone have a thought on the best way to move from CT to WS? Rent a tuck?? I will be moving down hopefully before year's end and just need some advice. Pods?? Car transport..........any advice would certainly be helpful..........it would be myself and grown son and 2 kitties !! So much to think about

Thanks!!!!!!!!!!

If you don't want to use long distance movers, you can always rent a truck and get movers on each side to load and unload. We used Two Men and a Truck for our last local move, and I think they do load/unload. I've also heard good things about Tri-City Movers, and I know they do load/unload.

I've never had to deal with car transport, so I can't help you there.

I used. Pod. I really was impressed. It wasn't cheap but I needed to store my things while I lived with my elderly parents.

Default pods

yes Im was thinking of pods only because you pack them yourself. Might be expensive but by the time you pay the movers and how I read that they get you for this and that, hmmmmmmm........

think I'll inquire as to the prices, and I think they have a facility is it Kernersville????Somewhere there where you could easily go and get your things

No. If you need visiting storage, don't use the Pod. Yay! More yankees!

I have relatives in the Kings Highway area.

I started looking at climate first. Not too hot and we can't stand the cold any more.
