Amazon.com: Among the stresses of modern living, moving is right up at the top of the list along with finding a job and looking for a place to live, and is often a part of both situations. The Steiners have assembled a complete guide to everything you could ever want to know (and a lot of things you may not have known you needed to know). Not content to simply outline the do's and don'ts of a typical move, they also rate moving companies, give useful tips on finding rentals, sublets, and trades, and even some sensible advice on long distance job hunting. They have taken a "no stone unturned" approach to moving in this fact-filled, thorough handbook, even including tips on getting settled in your new neighborhood! If you are facing or contemplating a move, this book will save you potentially thousands of dollars, and uncounted headaches and sleepless nights and aggravation. This may be the best guide ever written on the subject.

Steiner's Complete How-To-Move Handbook, April 2, 2002
Reviewer: A reader from Naperville, Illinois United States
This is the most complete book on moving that I have ever read. It delivers the promised information in a very readable and entertaining text. Some of its best features include the great worksheets, charts, sample forms, lists and timelines which will assist anyone in planning and accomplishing a successful move. I have made 9 or 10 moves in the past 25 years and can say, unequivocably, that although I have read (and used) many nice "moving" books...this is absolutely the BEST!!!

A great read but somewhat outdated unfortunately, June 28, 2001
Reviewer: usentspam from Teaneck, nj United States
The book covers almost all topics of moving in a thorough way that really conveys a lot of information in a short space. I planned to move from NJ to Florida & it really prepared me for the moving process. Although I didn't make the move, I did hire movers within NJ and I felt much more prepared having read this book. I've heard horror stories of people's goods being held hostage for more money, broken items, missing items, the book covered it all and told what to do in case that happens. It gives you enough information, however, to avoid such disreputable movers in the first place.

One area where it falls short (unfortunately) is the internet. There are many, many resoucrs on the net and the book doesn't cover enough of them IMHO. This book was written in 1999 though, and can sort of be excused I guess. I think that they would be well advised to do an update in a year or two with more coverage of resources for moving on the net. That'd be worth five stars then...

Everything you need to master a home move, August 23, 1998
Reviewer: A reader from California
Authors Clyde and Shari Steiner have completed 19 residential moves in five countries so they are well-qualified to write this unique and very complete book. Virtually nothing involving a household move is left out. The authors discuss reasons for moving, employment considerations, income tax aspects, home sales and purchases, renting and virtually everything to consider when changing residences. Strong emphasis is placed on how moves affect children and how to minimize problems. For example, the authors recommend moving during the school year, rather than in summer, so children will quickly make friends at their new school. This well-researched book has something for virtually every reader. If a topic doesn't interest you skip it because there are many more subjects which will be of interest. My favorite was how to handle and negotiate with moving companies. Although the authors discuss do-it-yourself moves they realize that isn't practical for most families so they explain the mover pitfalls to anticipate. They even rate moving companies.

Amazing!, July 28, 1997
Reviewer: A reader
This tops every moving book I've ever read! If anything has been left out, I can't image what it is. It even includes great tips for job hunting before you arrive. Spending a few hours with Steiner will save you a ton of stress
