Save Time and Reduce Stress
Once you figure out what your DIY move is going to cost you, there are still all the other tasks to complete. You have to rent a moving vehicle, purchase all your packing supplies, get everything packed and load the moving vehicle.
It’s exhausting and now you have to drive an unfamiliar and bulky vehicle to your new residence. A professional moving company can take care of most, if not all of this. They will offer you a choice of services and help you decide which best fits your needs.
No matter what type of service you choose, hiring professionals will save you time and significantly reduce your stress level during the move. The goal is to make your move go as smooth as possible.
Driving your own car in an area you are unfamiliar with can sometimes be uncomfortable. Just imagine doing it in the moving vehicle!
Most moving companies specialize in servicing specific areas of the country. This means they are probably more familiar with your new location than you are and have experience navigating around the area.
Years of experience usually means a moving company has contacts in the area. They will be able to not only obtain navigating specifics from their contacts, but may also be able to connect you with the local service providers you’ll need once you are settled in your new home.
What if you have to move from your old home before your new home is ready? With a DIY move you will have to pack it, load it, take it to storage and unload it. Once your new home is ready, you’ll have to load it up again, take it to your new residence, unload it and unpack it. That’s almost like moving twice!
Even if you choose to use one of those storage container services, you still have to do all the packing, unpacking, loading and unloading yourself. By the time you add pick up, delivery and storage fees to the cost of renting the storage container, you may discover you’re not saving enough to make it worth all the extra work.
Many full service companies offer both moving and storage, saving you a lot of time and hard work.
