    moving flats

    HI, been in HK a year and are moving to new flat in a couple of months. 2 questions.
    1. How much approx will movers cost to move a 750sq foot apartment- 1 couch, 1 bed, 1 table, one large chair. any suggestions for good movers to use?
    2. when ending the lease with written notice: can you pay for the last 2 months rent with the deposit, or do you have to pay them and then get the deposit back at the end. If so, how do you stop the landlord from ripping you off and not paying you back in full, perhaps making up some reason why you owe them something even when all is fine- damage to wall or something to that effect.

    thanks- any advice appreciated.

    is it a walk up appartment or an appartment with lift (that will impact the price).

    On average, 3 guys that you hire for about 4 hours to load/unload will cost you between 1 and 2.5K (depending on the distance between the 2 flats, stairs or no stairs, number of boxes you have...)
