If you don’t already know for yourself, the logistics of moving are a nightmare — especially when moving great distances. There are moving companies that can make things a lot easier. There are also moving companies that can make things a lot harder.
When Amoeba and I first started putting all of our ducks in a row, I contacted at least a dozen companies. Most of them said we’ll take you this far, then you’ll have to transfer to another company. The potential for things going wrong seriously escalates with that scenario. Plus, that’s extra people, extra handling, extra fees.
When I stumbled across MoveBuilder.com, I was really excited to learn that they handle complete moves from beginning to end. I filled out the forms and it wasn’t until I got to a live person that I discovered they only facilitate moves on the mainland. Luckily, the lovely person on the phone gave me some pointers and helped me contact someone who can get us from our old door, to our new door. Easy peasy.
