Default Moving company recommendation

We'll be closing in a couple of weeks adn we decided to hire a moving company. We're moving from Passaic county to Union count. We've never hired a moving company before. Any recommendations with a company you've actually used?

Thank you

Two Men and a Truck based in Manalapan were excellent. Good luck with your move.

Penske - great trucks (much better condition than U-Haul). We drove truck, but called 3 guys from Philly to load truck.

We don't want to move ourselves this time and we don't have anyone to help us. We would rather hire someone to do it all except pack that is. Thanks

Biggest expense is hiring drivers to drive your truck. Thats why we chose to drive it ourselves. We did hire 3rd party people to do the loading and unloaded and paid for the truck rental. As I stated, Penske was great. If you are moving locally, you can get away with U-Haul..But for longer distances, I would not trust uhual and go with Penske instead.

Highly recommend Wade Odell Wade. We moved last year within Morris county and they were excellent and well priced. Wrapped EVERYTHING in padding before they moved it.

Actually there is a great site where you can research and get real reviews on most movers:

Well I live in a townhouse and I have a lot of stairs. Moving in we did ourselves with some help but we didn't have too much furniture at the time. So there is no way in h#ll that we will be able to move all the furniture just the 2 of us and a 4 year old tugging on me. lololo So it might be worth it for us to just hire someone to move it all.

There's a moving company called Sopko Moving. I hear they're excellent and reasonably priced.
