I want to have a bedroom suite moved from an individual's house to my place (only about
5 miles apart, but it would require 2 men.

I've called a couple of places and they said they charge a 2 hour minimum which would be over $200.
Any suggestions who I could call that may give a better price.
If you want to DM me,... that is fine.
Thanks in advance

Could you get some friends together with a truck and move it? I moved my things from my parent's house to a 500 sq ft apartment in two days with a truck, a Jeep, Versa, one very tired 22 year old sister and one very stressed out father.

OR maybe Criagslist? That was an option for me but it turned out we just needed the family to move it all.

Another option is to rent a truck...Home Depot has a pickup that they rent out for $25 for an hour and 15 minutes (I think it's $5 for every 15 minutes after that). And get a friend to help you with the lifting.

There are people on craigslist who will move things for you...I called a couple of them before when I needed a pool table moved, and they wanted about $100 but of course it would depend on the distance and it was kind of far.

Call Franks Moving. I dont have the number at this time but they are in the phone book. I have used them at least six times for moves of less than 2 miles and they are very reasonably priced, efficient and responsible. Check... 333-0907, I looked it up.
