I haven't used them here, but Two Men and a Truck is usually pretty reasonable for in state moves.

I've also heard great things about ABF. They bring a truck to your home, you load, they take it where you are going and you unload. If that is something you are able to do, they might be worth checking in to. http://www.upack.com/

We used 2 Men and A Truck a few months ago, and they did a very good job. We were moving from an apt to the home we bought. Price was very reasonable, but a lot of our stuff was still in boxes. Plus, we only moved 2 miles, from Greer to Greenville.

You might also want to check out one of the sites like Moving Companies, Local Movers & Moving Help | HireAHelper.com. Here, you can find independent movers who charge hourly. I've used this site to find guys twice. Both times, I boxed all my own stuff and rented my own truck. Then the movers showed up, wrapped all the furniture and loaded the truck for me. They were very efficient, courteous and friendly. The site posts lots of reviews so you're sure you are getting good people. You might need more help than just loading. You choose how much help you need. You can find someone who does it all, or just parts. Moving this way has saved me TONS over quotes from moving companies.

Two Men and a Truck can be crazy expensive when you cross state lines. They were more than double the cost of Mayflower when I moved from MI.

Moving: How to avoid Moving Company Scams is a great place to get info about moving companies.

Not crossing any state lines , just about a hour away from where I am now---Greenville County to Abbeville County.

They said there price is 85 an hour for two men and also a 7% fuel charge.

Price sounds reasonable just hope there are no hidden fee's they spring on you.

No hidden fees, but remember that the clock starts and stops at their office, not your front door.

I used 2 men and a truck too, it ended up costing almost $1,000 because it took 9 hours to move (from a 1500 sq. ft. apartment, less than 10 miles away).
