While Movers.com does not do actual moves, you can get free quotes from plenty of reputable moving services that can help you with all of your moving needs. There are many different types of moving services that can be provided to you. After you get your free quotes, make sure you get at least three estimates before you choose to hire a service.
What type of move is this?
For moving just a few items, your move is what is called a small move. This is usually the case in studio apartments and dorm rooms (or in your case, just moving a few items) and is any move that weighs less than 2,000 pounds. This option is also for someone who does not want to use a freight method to ship his or her furniture. It may cost you a bit more, since the move will also be considered long distance due to it being between states.
What is the benefit?
You'll get professionals that are used to moving various household goods day in and day out. They will pack and protect your dining room set and bring it to your new location without you having to lift a finger. If you were to ship the dining room table yourself, there could be a possibility of it getting damaged in transit – your beautiful (and most likely expensive) furniture could run the risk of dents or scratches. With a moving service, you have the option of getting insurance on your belongings.
After you hire your service and have your dining set moved, leave your feedback on the company on our review page, we'd love to hear from you!
