Trying to find movers to move by 1 bedroom apartment from Florida to NC. I am thinking about hiring a company like PODS, but cheaper than pods. I am also planning on hiring someone to move my stuff in and out of the "pod". I'm trying to keep the total move under $1500. Any suggestions on companies or experiences?

We moved a one bed place from Miami to Charlotte

It with us packing the boxes so the movers came in numbered every box item of furniture etc, loaded the van Friday (we used approx. 1/3 of the van)

Phoned us on the Saturday confirmed the price once they weighed the truck, delivered everything on Monday, putting everything where we wanted it, including running up and down the stairs rather a lot of times.

cost $2500.

We had 5500lbs of junk (Well maybe not quite junk).

As for hiring people to pack a pod you may be better contacting a local staffing agency at each end.

Talking Charlotte Movers

I just wrote a post about All My Sons - Charlotte for someone looking for a good, insured, reasonable, company. There # is 704-344-1300 - they might be able to help you or at least send you in the right direction. I do know if you go pods, make sure you rent blankets, otherwise all your stuff will knock around and get damaged. AMS can unload you once you get here in Charlotte, but they may even be able to bring you here and that way you get a great company. They also have a great BBB record and they are licensed by the state to move. Hope this helps. Be careful - don't always go with the cheapest - I've had a friend at church never get their stuff - the company disappeared. Also, many internet websites will broker out your move for a fee - so I suggest trying to go directly to the company.

I wish I would have saved the name and number of the people I used. I moved a 1 bedroom apt (well, the stuff only of course ) from MI to NC with Uhaul. I then put an ad on craigslist for movers. Got 2 guys who do it for extra money. They finished in under an hour. I gave them $40 each, even though the agreement was $20/hr each. They were carrying 2-3 boxes up to the 3rd floor in August. Everything was great and I had no problems!
