First, I hope all these posts haven't scared you too bad. Second, do your homework.
Be prepared! My husband and I have moved multiple times with and without moving companies. If you do not have much to move, you might want to consider renting a U-Haul truck and doing it yourself with the help of a few friends. Otherwise, moving with a moving company can be nice. All you have to do is sit back and watch. You do have responsibilities before and after the move. If you visit a website such as http://www.allied.com/
you will find lots of useful information for planning a move. Good Luck!
