“Dear PoPville,

I am looking for recommendations for long-distance movers. My husband and I are moving from DC to Chicago. We got a few good quotes, but the movers we spoke to said they want to use a full tractor-trailer and I think that would be a logistical nightmare based on where our apartment is located in Adams Morgan. Any tips for long-distance movers who have experience with urban moves would be appreciated!

Otherwise I think we will hire movers on both ends to pack and unpack and then drive a U-Haul truck ourselves. If anyone has tips on that method that would be helpful too.

(I saw this was a topic in the forum a few years ago but didn’t see a lot of advice posted there.)”
