Tips on Moving   

Be careful where you shop! At a recent closing an attorney passed this story along.  Her client had shopped movers on the internet, found a cheap one and took a look at it's web site. He hired the company who showed up in a white unmarked (first clue) semi, and loaded the seller's furniture to take to the new home. They never showed up.

 

 

* Call for estimates from several movers  Cheapest is not always best.  

* If you want info on your new location, call the local Chamber of Commerce for a packet.
