I think that's universal regardless of where you are located.  If it's "unusual" stuff, then move it yourself (if
you're able to).

Fortunately had some fore thought prior to my move.  So I spent a lot of time sorting and palletizing the
smaller stuff (ie anything that wasn't already on casters).  I would not have been able to load the truck,
drive almost 200 miles, unload and drive back all in the same day if I hadn't already had stuff "pre-packaged".
