There´s a couple of other movers, but I´m not sure how the services or pricing. As to packing the container, pack it just like you would a U-Haul straight truck. They usually have "how to pack" brochures, and probably have in online now. Good Luck!

Patagoniax, how I wish I'd seen those photos before booking. It'd be so much easier if it could be lowered to the ground. Or if we'd booked it to pick up from a warehouse/storage facility rather than residential pick-up. I thought it seemed like more hassle to pack up everything, get it taken to a warehouse, and then put in a container, than 'simply' doing it here. Simple it is not, however!
Insurance is doable even if we pack, so that's fine.
Still haven't spoken to the trucker but from what the shipping company says, it'll be 5ft off the ground and remain 5ft off the ground. So it'll have to be a ramp or some lumber. To cover that height it'll have to be about 10ft, presumably. I picture it bending like a blade of grass as people bounce up it with heavy boxes in their arms... which doesn't inspire me with confidence.
We'll figure it all out somehow.
Thanks so much all!
