Relocation made easy and stress-free.

In my almost 6 years of living here in the U.S., we have moved twice. The first one was to another town in the same state. The second one was a big move since we had to move from Arkansas to Montana. Regardless of how big the move was, both had a considerable amount of stress. If not for the efficient local movers that hubby’s new employer had contracted to help us with the move, it would have been probably too much for us to handle. What they did was they sent two people to do the packing. They carefully wrapped our belongings and put them in boxes. On the following day, they sent the moving van with the driver of course and an assistant to do the actual lifting and moving of things from the house into the moving vehicle.

We pretty much didn’t do anything but just be physically present while the movers were doing all of these. It was really a smooth sailing process. We were relieved that we used professional movers to help us with the move. Just recently, a neighbor and a friend here in our area, moved to the East Coast, with her husband of course. Unfortunately though, they didn’t hire movers so she pretty much did all of the tough labor. They didn’t have kids so I guess it was a bit easier for them to handle the work themselves but still she told me the whole experience was stressful and tiring. I couldn’t agree more with her. Personally, I don’t want to move again for the next ten years or so. We just bought a house so I think that’s one good reason enough to stay put, lol!

Relocating is really such a hassle. Good thing you really choose to ask help from professional movers to help you with that.

I know the feeling of moving many times. In my experience here in Singapore, I have moved four times already and it's toxic to find a new place and the packing is so exhausting!

Moving can indeed be stressful, but it's a good thing that there are professionals who can help with moving there. Here in the Philippines, you have to do it yourself or rally your friends to help you because professional movers are kind of non-existent, and those that do exist are so expensive, you're better off without help instead. :P

I hate moving. I've been here in the US for only 3 years and we've moved twice already. And maybe in the next couple of years we are moving again.:( Thanks for the tips. This will come in handy.

Been there and it was tough for us as we have two kids. Having a professional moving company to help you is great advantage.

relocating is really a pain in the b..t...the packing and unpacking alone is stressful! We're just lucky during our previous move because we have movers helped us packed and unpacked our belongings.

It sure is! I was thankful too when local moving trucks were available for moving out. If its not, I don't know what would happen a few years back when moving out was part of our life. But now we found a house that we might be staying for a long time. So no need of a local movers yet!

I remember the experienced that my Aunt and her family had when they decided to moved from London to the Philippines, the moving company they hired is not reliable that some of their belongings are broken when it arrived the country..

many people hates moving because of what it involved with it. Well thanks to these moving company for making it stress free though. BUT i think it's still stressful especially when we all have to pul all the things in place and open the boxes.

i guess that's the hard part living in US, i have heard many friends moving from one state to another because of their jobs and all, it's really different here in the philippines, moving is not as easy as we think,
