Uhaul, pod, movers?
Anyone done this recently
If you have nice = movers, and find good ones
If you don't = be a man and uhaul your crap with a good friend who won't charge you

I'm moving to NC from Fla next month, the company is providing the moving company. I guess they come in and pack all your stuff(you can't, they do it for you so they can insure it) move it to your new location and un-pack it for you. They charge by the square foot. Sounds pretty sweet IMO.
No I did not lose a sig bet, but I am really really really ridiculously good looking.
They gonna be able to get everything out of your mom's basement in one trip?
I dream of a day when chickens can cross the road without having their motives questioned.
A Camry has a bigger trunk than it looks.
How many basements have you seen in fla? . #BadYankeeJokes
What company are you using
Oh chit, that's right, I lived there 10 years.... Been in illinois too long, Your mom's detached garage?
I'll know by the end of the week, they set us up with a relocation company and they contract it out. I'll let you know.
Cool, is appreciate that
Friend of mine owns 2 men and a truck in Tuscaloosa, Panama City Fla, and Wichita KS...if you're going any of those routes, use him. They may all be good, but this guy runs a tight ship. Odds of going to any of those 3 areas is probably not strong, but just saying.
Cash no issue, go with a reputable moving company. I have moved 1,000s of miles and done it both ways. Look for personal references, check Angie's list and other references. All you have to do is unplug your electronics, they do the rest. Hang out, stay out of their way, buy them subs/pizza for lunch and tip them. They will take care of your shit if you did your homework.
Pods - I have never used this, but if I had to move a long distance again and $ was an issue, I'l likely look at this. Similar to U-haul, but you don't have to worry about driving the truck or finagling it into some odd downtown place. I guess a lot of the other options (PODs, u-haul...) all depend on your driving skills (that of your co-mover) and the place you are moving from/to.
It really does depend on how much you want to spend.
I work for a division of United Van Lines... not really involved in that part of the business, but if you choose to hire someone call one of the big moving companies in your area. Get an estimate in writing. They will give you a guaranteed price.
Most important is take care of the crew. Buy them lunch and give them a tip.
I know with PODS or someone like that, the timing takes longer then hiring someone else to do it.
If you go for a U-Haul...make sure you buy lots of boxes and rent the furniture pads...tons of furniture pads.
