I'm going to be moving from PA to MD in the next couple of months. I've moved many times before, but it's always been a corporate move, where everything was handled for me and all I had to do was show up. This time, I'm going to have to do it all myself (and pay for it myself).

So, I need to find a moving company. I have an apartment, but I have a fair amount of furniture, as well as many, many boxes. I don't really know anyone to get a recommendation - the only people I know either have never moved except with a friend and a U-Haul, or they did corporate moves and never dealt with a moving company directly.

I looked up moving companies and found dozens - where do you start? And what do I need to be worried about as far as getting estimates and not getting gouged on the price? The internet is full of moving horror stories, and I'm not sure how much to believe.
