7. Call at least three companies.
Have them come over, look at your stuff, and give you a quote in writing. Make sure at least one national and at least one local company is included.

Make sure you understand just how binding this quote is. Do they have the option to up the quote if your stuff weighs more or takes up more space than they estimate? Do not go with a company that will not give you a binding estimate.

Call the Better Business Bureau and see if they have any complaints about a company before you decide which one to go to. Having a complaint on file may not be a deal-breaker. It will depend on what the complaint is for.

The first time I felt like an adult was when I had to organize a cross-country move.

Good luck!
