Life disruption, boxes, chaos, have I mentioned how much I hate moving? It is one of life's most stressful times. There is nothing fun about packing every little thing I own into boxes. It takes a lot of effort and patience in packing and labeling before I can move, and usually, I do know where to start! Well, I am not living with my dearest parents, and I've moved 6 times in the last few years of my life in Petaling Jaya. Each move has been necessary and all for different reasons.

Fortunately, I made smart decision to hire residential moving companies for my move, each and every time. Whatever my reason for moving, it can be a stressful time, and relying on credible local movers can ease my concerns and pave the way to a smooth move.

I know there are a zillion decisions to be made when you move a household. If you are preparing for a move to a new home, there are many ways to cut the cost of moving. For example, get rid of any clutter in your house. Why would you pay to move items to your new home, if you are not going to keep the items long term? Throw away junk, or contact your local waste management facility to see if the items can be recycled. Another way to cut costs when moving is that, compare quotes from different moving companies. This will assist you in making the right decision to choose the perfect and best movers for your type of move.

Moving seems like an expensive life event, but it doesn't have to break the bank. Paying for professional movers from affordable and reliable moving company such as Uhaul.com when you are on a low budget can save you a lot of money too!

So, do you prefer to hire a moving company or would you rather do it yourself?

I would rather hire movers also Mon because i moved myself one time. I really worked hard and had a back ache for about three days then i found out for just a few dollars more i could have hired somebody else. So now i always hire movers the best way to go. ;)

I tried once to transport back a newly purchased office table which is almost as long as my car.. I must say that is a scary experience without being able to balance the thing properly and drive with focus. *DONT_KNOW* :-P

Moving to a new home can be a stressful experience for most people. I only do it if I really, really need to for some good reason. at the moment, i'm happy with my present home.

*rotflao* I LOOOVE that picture! That looks like me moving. 8-) =-X

I love to move! I have lived in a suitcase for most of my adult life and I guess I'll keep on living that way. I get restless if I stay too long in a place, I need at least to change houses. I tend to collect too much stuff so every tie I'm about to move I declutter my home and I think that's fun. I wish I wouldn't let it get so luttered in the forst place, that would save me a lot of time. :-D
