Whether you're moving into a new home, preparing to sell your existing one, or just planning some maintenance, one of the most important things you need to know about your house is whether it needs restumping. Restumping, also known as reblocking, involves repairing or replacing the supports, or stumps, that hold up the building's floor. In some cases, only a few stumps need to be replaced, while in other cases the needed repairs are far more extensive.
- If you are moving, you should consider interstate backloading. In general, moving to a new house in a different state can be an expensive process. Backloading is an ideal choice if you are looking to reduce your total expenses. This option involves using a moving vehicle after it completes another move. The removalists rent the truck space at a lower price rather than returning with an empty truck. In other cases, backloading provides an option for multiple customers to share truck space.
