MOVERS, ANYONE?

I occasionally travel outside of the Philippines and would love to trek around the United States for a while. Aside from obtaining the correct visa, the next biggest struggle will be finding reliable long distance movers near me. A lot can go wrong during a move, and I don’t want any of my valuables breaking or getting lost.
