From the move coordinator to the actual packers and delivery men, everyone was very helpful and courteous. Moving is never fun, but they tried to make it as painless as possible. The guys did a good job of getting things to the places I designated and were patient with me as I was juggling a few things at a time while they were here.
We hired Still Transfer to load a POD for the first part of our cross town move. The crew of three - including Lamar & Persian were absolutely phenomenal. Friendly, punctual and extremely hard-working and very capable in their container management skills - so impressive that everything fit!!
I would highly recommend them and we'll be using them again this week for the unload...

Unfortunately for him, steam trucks were notreallycommon until the mid 1800's. While looking at thispractically, it would be much harder to have a steam truck.

In the United States and Canada, the cost for long-distance moves is generally determined by a few factors. The first is the weight of the items tobe movedand the distance it will go. Cost is also based on howquicklythe items are tobe moved, as well as the time of the year or month which the move occurs. In the United Kingdom and Australia, it's quite different. They base price on the volume of the items as opposed to their weight. Keep in mind some movers may offer flat rate pricing.
