Movers Have Cell Phones, Too!

I thought our book Nolo's Essential Guide to Buying Your First Home had a pretty complete list of what to do when planning a move -- but this recent article in The New York Times mentions something we forgot:

Ask for the cell phone numbers of the people actually driving off in the moving van with your stuff, and give them your cell phone numbers! Who knows what mini-disasters this might avert . . . .

The article also gives some handy costs breakdowns on everything from cardboard boxes to truck rentals to tipping the guys loading the truck.
