Moving Without Breaking a Sweat_An

Excited to move, but have a limited budget and dread the back-breaking work of carrying heavy boxes and furniture out of your old place and into your new home?

Your worries are over.

Do the best you can to save money by getting free boxes from retail stores, packing your worldly possessions yourself and renting a UHaul and driving it to your destination. That’s all good.

Moving Without Breaking a Sweat: an Insanely Helpful Moving TipBut set a few bucks aside and hire one set of local moving people to carry all the boxes, beds, furniture and heavy stuff out of your current dwelling — and a second set to meet you at your new place and carry the same things into your new place. You can do this easily via the UHaul website.

You save yourself untold sweat and strain with this helpful moving tip.

Two professional movers can unload a full-sized UHaul trailer and carry everything inside in a few hours.

$400-$800 total at $25-$100 an hour (plus tips) for movers on both ends is money extremely well spent.

My son and daughter-in-law rented a U-Haul  when they moved to another state and hired movers on both ends through the website at

Movers are given unedited ratings by customers, so you can pick ones with the highest reviews, which they did.

Two young men came to their apartment on time and ready to work — and carefully loaded everything, including heavy couches, tables and a china cabinet, as well as a king-sized bed, into the full-sized rental van in about three hours.

We drove the cars and the van to their destination, where we met another set of movers at Moving Without Breaking a Sweat: an Insanely Helpful Moving Tipthe new apartment. These two energetic men emptied the fully loaded rental truck and carried everything up three full flights of stairs (43 steps each way — no elevator) into their third-floor apartment, in less than four hours. In the horrible, humid heat of August.

We couldn’t believe how easy it was.

All we did was give them some cold drinks and stand in the air conditioning to direct them to the rooms where the items belonged.

My son and daughter-in-law moved for a second time recently in the same town, and they hired local movers again through the same website to move out of the third-floor apartment and into a first floor house. It worked out just as well as the first time (only the movers were taking things down three flights of stairs).

Nothing got broken, and nobody got hurt.

Now that’s a smooth move.
