Below are some things to consider before you decide to hire a moving company.
The movers will only do so much as you tell them to and these services will be reflected in their bill. Some just ask the moving company to transport the belongings that they have already packed themselves. Sometimes also, if the move is cross country, people will rent a large truck and employ a crew to pack their goods and load the truck. These people will then drive the truck to their new location and there hire a new team of movers there who will unload and unpack their stuff. And there are, of course, those who would ask a moving company to do everything for them, from packing everything, to loading, moving, and unloading at the destination.
