When you are undergoing a move whether it be long or short distances, you may be trying to decide on handling the move yourself or seeking out moving assistance. When it comes to using a professional moving service or undertaking the move yourself there are some major differences. Prodigy Moving & Storage would like to share what you can expect when you do a move all on your own and from a professional moving service and then see which one is right for you.
DIY Packing & Moving
When people choose to handle a moving all on their own time and labor, it is mostly to help save cost. When it comes to moving your household, you will be responsible for all of the packing. This is even true when using a moving service unless you requested assistance. However, not everyone owns a large moving truck or trailer. When it comes to transportation, you will have to rent a trailer or moving truck. Depending on the amount of furniture and belongings you need to move, you’re most likely looking at multiple trips, which isn’t bad as long as it is a short distance move. When renting a moving truck, most rentals charge by the mile, as well as the rental fees you will be charged. When moving yourself becomes a bit of a snag is when you get to the heavier items such as furniture and appliances. They can be difficult to move especially without help. One of the down sides of moving yourself is that you often don’t have all of the moving equipment that makes loading and unloading the heavier and bigger items much easier. When it comes to doing your own moving it is not too bad when you don’t have a lot of items to move and if it is short distance. However, long distance as well as moving an entire household especially those with larger, more fragile items, most will find doing your own moving can be very difficult and stressful.
Benefits of Hiring Professional Movers
Professional moving services have a great deal of benefits which make moving far less stressful and far less work. As stated before, when it comes to moving, the homeowner will be responsible for packing their items in moving boxes or containers. However, some moving services can provide moving materials that can help make packing certain items more efficient and safer. When seeking the aid of a moving service see if they provide moving materials for more specific items. Moving services can also provide loading and unloading services and have all of the equipment for larger items. By providing loading and unloading of your home’s items, it can help make moving less stressful and far less work. Additionally, you can schedule a moving service and the size and number of moving trucks you will need to move your household belongings. When it comes to a larger household, even long distances, a moving service can help make moving far less stressful, reduces the amount of work, and is much more efficient.
