Always go with a nationwide carrier like Atlas Van Lines, Budd Van Lines or United Van Lines. As tempting as it may be to try and save every nickel possible by using a smaller carrier, you stand a big chance of regretting it in the end. Moving is stressful enough for most people. The last thing you want is to have an independent carrier trying to take advantage of you. They are notorious for it. It's not uncommon for small household goods carriers to have several lawsuits against them at any given time.
