Reduce as much as possible, box the rest up. Get estimates. Hire a truck. Be told on loading that you're $2000 over the estimate. Make them weigh it, only $100 over.
Cross your fingers.
One week trying to schedule truck delivery.
One hour trying to get the truck to the new location, end up sending the hired unloaders out to guide truck in.
4 hours checking off boxes against the cargo list.
6 months arguing with the company about missing and broken things.
