Very cost effective, and you have complete and utter control over every aspect of your move.

You won't break your back or the bank! Takes minutes to book movers on your phone through HireAHelper.
You have to take more time to research your options and spend a little more than the DIY move.
Someone else does all the work on moving day!
Takes days rather than minutes to get quotes. You may have to file for bankruptcy after the move. Seriously.
Easy as always, did not allow for one-way 20' foot truck rentals, only 26' foot trucks. It was quite the experience driving that large of a truck, I got stuck multiple times. I wish I had the option to go smaller. It ended up being plenty of truck for the move though and I am overall happy with the ease of only using a single trip for the whole apartment. The customer service was great as always when I got stuck. I used the roadside assistance and everything worked itself out within a couple hours.
Both the truck & trailer I rented were almost new and the agent I got the truck from went out of his way to make the process worry free. After the truck was loaded, I noticed a cut in the sidewall on one of the outside rear tires. I contacted the agent and within 2 hours they had someone to the house to replace the tire. After the move, I took the truck to the local Uhaul store, gave them the keys and left. They took care of everything else.
Krystle from Family Movers called two days before the move, then one day before the move to make sure things were in place.Tom and VInny were a great team of movers. They unloaded our 16 foot truck in less than two hours. It would have taken us all day! The temperature was 90 plus on the day of our move and they were hustling around without complaint. They were patient, helpful, and kind as they moved all of our items into the house, garage, around the back, and to the side. They were wonderful and did a fantastic job.
I am a female senior citizen, and the men at PACK-RAT did everything they could to help me, even going so far as to help me repack one of my containers when it overweight. They didn't cancel the move, they just stayed to help balance out my two containers. They went above and beyond their jobs to help me. I now recommend PACK-RAT to everyone I know.
1-800-Packrat did a great job all along the process. Especially appreciated our shell transporter Mahendra in SF Bay Area. The one thing that prevents me from giving them an excellent is that they were not upfront on the choices I had on when the shells were dropped off. They introduced this in our last shell drop off when I asked why it was not there till 1 pm. They said that morning was a premium for an extra amount. This seriously effected our packing and our workmen who were there to pack. This should be explained upfront.
ABF was prompt on the delivery of the unit both at the origin location and the destination location. Both locations were also in constant contact during their respective legs of the journey. While some items did get damaged in transit that is no fault of ABF and is a reminder that if your items are not secured properly then you never know what can happen. I would gladly use their service again for a long distance move as the container was well constructed and they do not force you to pay storage fees if you do not need them.
The Relocube itself is smaller than you might expect, but it can fit more than you might expect. We had no problem fitting an oversized couch, box springs plus mattress, wardrobe boxes, a dining room table, a fairly large mirror, an entertainment center, and nearly a dozen assorted medium to large boxes in a single cube. In fact, we were worried we left too much space for things to shake around. Nontheless, everything arrived intact and in good, if dusty, condition. The delivery drivers in both locations were friendly and helpful, and the dispatchers were generally reachable and communicative regarding logistics. The only mild complaint I have centers around pick-up and drop-off times - you're given a four-hour window, either in the morning or afternoon, during which your cube can be picked up or dropped off, and it can vary wildly within that window. Our cube was fully packed and ready to go by 2 p.m., but wasn't picked up until close to 6 p.m., which can be a bit frustrating if you're nervous about a cube on a busy street. Strong locks and careful pod positioning can ease your minds, however - one of the delivery drivers smartly advised us to use parallel-parked cars to block would-be burglars.
