We used http://www.movinglaborbrokers.com/ TWICE.

First, in NJ the movers we hired never showed (nice....dh took a day off) so these guys stepped in and saved the day. They loaded our POD.

Then we used them again to unload our POD here in NC.

It's 2 guys for 4 hours for a total of $270. Then its $40/hour for additional hours.

We did as much as we could ourselves and hired them to move the heavy stuff.

Can't compliment them enough, they really where professional, knew what they were doing/very helpful. It was worth every cent.

So basically you've spent $95 before they even start. Seems kinda excessive. On the plus side, it's a family run business and they have their own crews (i.e., they don't hire labor from a street corner downtown).

Anyone else have any recommendations?

Whoever you get make sure you get a "Not To Exceed" estimate. We got one, the mover then tried to overcharge us (and did at first since they had our stuff) but then we went to the owner and he personally refunded our money plus 10%. We went from MD to NC.
