    Re: Seeking Moving Advice

    I shipped most of small to medium sized tools via our 28' trailer rental, but hired Gentle Giant moving company to move the bigger stuff. This worked out for me since they were also moving my wife's grand piano and our bigger furniture pieces. However, this was a cross state move, so we saved by splitting our move. The trailer company was kind enough to offer a discount for one month of storage.

    For the big stuff, I took apart the dust collector and packed the motor and the body myself, shipped via trailer. All of the small tools went into moving boxes in the trailer. Gentle giant took care of the bandsaw, the jointer and the table saw.

    Re: Seeking Moving Advice

    I just did what you're planning on doing. I moved my entire shop myself with family help. I rented a small Enterprise box truck ( no special license ) with a liftgate. Worked like a champ!! Moved it all to a storage unit non-climate controlled. I sprayed all cast iron with a good coat of LPS 3. Not a single problem in almost two years of storage. Cleanup with a little WD40. Sweet! New shop now is up and running. Good luck.
