Question DetailsAsked on 5/17/2011

Should I rent a pod or hire a mover?

I'm needing to move furniture to Seattle from Pennsylvania ... have any economical suggestions for only one rooms worth of items (12x4x6)?

Do you have the same question? Follow this Question

Pods are very expensive and they do not provide loading and unloading unless you pay an extra fee. If you just have regular furniture and not very expensive or antique pieces, it would be less expensive to sell them (even at a loss) and take the money to pay on new furniture at your new address. What you get out of the furniture you sell less the price of the move will probably be more for you to spend than if you moved it. Hope this helps.

Laminate flooring - install without moving furniture out of the room?
Want to change carpet to laminate in a large upstairs room. Moving the furniture completely out would involve taking each large piece immediately down a flight of stairs. Can you move the furniture to one side, remove carpeting and install laminate, and then move the furniture to the laminate side? Does the snap in place laminate rely on having everything installed and tight before it can take the weight of furniture without coming apart?

We moved from SoCal to Boston, rented a pod and then hired movers locally to load/unload. Worked like a charm!
