What to Expect When You Hire a Moving and Storage Company to Help with Your Relocation   Once you make the decision to move to a new home, you will probably need to hire someone experienced to help you with the organization, the heavy lifting and the transportation.

Since most of them actually work for companies that offer moving and storage services, they will also be able to give you a hand with the packing and provide you with the packing supplies you need.   Once the packing is completed, they should review everything that has to be relocated and apply sticker with numbers to the boxes and pieces of furniture.
