If you want to eliminate the stress of it all, Vicky and her company will do it all with professionalism and care. She came with measuring tape and note book on the first visit to help with my Dad's move from a Condo to a Retirement home. They book the movers, they come in and pack, they help decide what to take from furniture to towels to kitchen utensils and pictures, they take all the measurements and go to the new place and tape off what will go where, they arrange to move other items to my place, they get rid of unwanted items either by donation or to the garbage, they help with contents sales, etc. At the end of the day of the move the bed is made, the kitchen is set up, furniture and tv is all ready and the pictures are hung. We even recommended them to friends who moved from a house they had been in over 35 years to a condo and they were thrilled. Costs vary depending on the size of the job but you aren't exhausted from lugging boxes and stressing over what is going on.
