Hiring a moving company, but pack ourselves?

10 years ago

When we moved two weeks ago we packed ourselves, rented a truck and hired moving helpers. The total came to about $1,000 all inclusive.

When we move from here to our new home a couple months from now we are wondering if we should look into a moving company so we don't have to pick up the truck and drive it ourselves etc. Since we are in the temporary apartment right now, we are 80% packed already. We are going to call to get estimates, but I was wondering if anyone has hired a moving just to drive, load and unload. I was wondering what kind of price we should expect (3 bedroom house, garage and shed) and would it be comparable to hiring moving helpers or are we looking at thousands more?
