Fortunately, you can control how much your move costs while still benefiting from the skills and expertise of top-quality moving professionals. Here are some intelligent strategies for getting the most for your residential moving dollar.

Whether you have a shelf of books or an entire library, putting them in storage takes a bit of trust. Many books emerge from storage smelling musty or sporting stains on their once-clean pages.
