I think I have moved over ten times in my life. Because my dad is in the military we needed to move around a lot. When we found out that we were moving we could pack up the in just a couple days. http://www.aussiemove.com.au

There is nothing more comforting than to look at your washer and dryer and know that professionals will move them for you. I have helped tons of people move over my lifetime. The couches and beds were always a little tricky, but nothing was ever as difficult as the washers and dryers. http://www.frankandsonsmovingandstorage.com

These are some really interesting statistics about movers in America! Is there a statistic about people moving to different countries? I'm going to be moving to Canada for a short period of time to work and I've been looking for a moving company to help me. Do you know of any moving companies that will help you relocate to a different country or will I have to switch moving companies at the boarder? http://www.monarchmessenger1975.com

Wow, the statistics is interesting! I already moved 5 times so about 6 more to go! I found it really helpful to hire a moving company like www.goorangemoving.com It makes the job so much easier!
