Moving is hard. It takes time and money and brute strength. If you are not organized it can be really easy for your move to become a living nightmare. Whether you are moving down the block or across the country, you will need some sort of help.
You can hire movers to help you move your items. You pay them by the hour, and they come with a truck and muscular arms, and pack your items in their truck for you, and take it wherever you tell them to take it. There are also long distance movers for when you are moving across country, or over state lines. It is not a surprise though that movers can be very expensive. They can cost you upwards of thirty dollars or more an hour depending on where you live and what company you go to.
If you want to save money, asking friends and family to help you move is really your best option financially. You will not have insurance coverage for damaged items though, and your brother might not be the gentlest creature. There are many places that offer truck rental for low prices as well.
If you are moving internationally, pods when be the option for you. They are very easily transported by air. Many companies that you would rent a truck from offer the option of pod rental. This may be the way to go if driving is just not an option.
Remember, you do not have to do your move by yourself. There are many people that are out there that are trained in moving that can help you. Do not stress yourself out. Packing is stressful enough on its own without having to transport the stuff. Let someone else do the heavy lifting.
