In the time when a lot of moving companies have come in play, experts give some advice on how people can make a conscious and wise decision of picking the right moving company.

Checkbook executive editor Kevin Brasler has shared that for the same work & same move, certain companies charge double the price from the customer. He mentioned a recent move where packing ranged from less than $4,000 to more than $8,000 for the same work. He suggested that people need to get multiple companies to their houses to examine the need. People need to make sure they get the written estimates with them, from every moving company, with the maximum fees they will be paying.

Brasler’s other suggestion is to stop searching for middleman broker companies online and instead deal with local moving companies. The online dealers are getting payment in advance and thus one can’t do anything if something goes wrong once the service is bought. “They’re getting payment in advance, and so you really have very little recourse if something goes wrong,” he said.

If the mover does all the packing, it will double the cost. One needs to find out whether the items packed are covered under company’s insurance or not. This will help in case the things received are broken. If the local company is hired, you can check and pay later, reducing the cost of a broken material. But the same isn’t the case with online bought deal.

Other tips from Checkbook included – making sure the company makes a complete list of the belongings which it shares with the customer, being present and paying attention when items are loaded and unloaded, scanning all the belongings carefully to look for damage if any, & not signing any release papers without first noting what all has been damaged.

The traditional Papasan, bought by the U.S. military men in 1970s-80s during the Vietnam War to the states as a gift for their wives, has undergone a tremendous change fitting to a more contemporary world now. Papasan, a bowl-shaped, cushioned chair having a definite 1970s feel to it, is admired by many for its quirky aesthetic though plenty are put off by its precarious-seeming nature having woken up stiff and contorted sleeping in it, in an unassuming fatal position for eight hours. The chair spells chic to some and uncomfortable for others. All said and done, reformed Papasan chairs have found place in households.

Lindsey Shook, editorial and brand director of “California Home + Design Magazine” says that she has noticed that the original Papasan shape has undergone a change and brands like Bend Goods and Baxter, are transforming it by playing more with metal finishes, cords, installing smaller pillows and changing the shape of the chair. The new Papasans are lightweight and easy to move about, having endless re-styling opportunities due to this new avatar. The cushions can be replaced and a colourful blanket can be added to the vintage change to give it a fresh face. The saucer-shaped Papasan chair have regained popularity due to its boho-chic style. The reinvented Papasan is modern, earthy while being comfortable and casual fitting to the youthful spirit at the same time.

Papasan goes by various names- the bucket chair, the saucer chair, the bowl chair, the moon chair, amongst others. Its name is a mixture of Japanese and English words though the chair was advertised by the Philippines for the first time.
