Thank's for that.Last move I did was 1200 miles and PODS didn't have delivery service at the destination...so I had to go with a pro-mover company. I used Atlas Van Lines. 3 bedroom house (1 room was empty), not a lot of items...I think it was about 20 boxes plus another 45 items they moved. I boxed everything I could up, the rest was larger furniture/lawn care/etc...Cost was around $4,500 for Atlas. I loaded two vehicles up, and pulled one on a trailer behind me. It was two weeks from Atlas loading, to Atlas unloading.
It's not as bad as you think. I rented a 16 footer and towed a car behind it and never had any issues. The only part that sucked was the speed governor.Appreciate it lads. I got some insight on Reddit too. Maybe I'll rent a uhaul for like a day or hour, whatever they cost, and see if I can actually drive something that big.
This is what I used to move from Idaho to GeorgiaCheck out Upack. It's essentially ABF the freight company but they work with people that move too. I had a 28ft trailer dropped off at my place on the west coast. They gave me 5 or 7 days to load it, they pick it up and drive it to where you are moving and again give you 5 days or so to unload.
Then I just tossed the kids in my truck and did a road trip at my leisure. Total cost to the east coast was 3k.
I’ve had almost the exact opposite experience. I’ve used them twice for cross country moves, and the second time I used it as a storage unit for 6 months afterwards. Always easy to use, load, and they were on time. Expensive (both moves were about halfway across the country and cost ~$2k for two boxes), but it worked.Don't use UHaul pods took an act of God to get my stuff back
