Whether you are moving, storing or remodeling your home, most likely you are going to need professional movers for your project. But have you thought about your oversized and large furniture that may not fit through your doorways or up a narrow stairwell? Some of your household furniture may require disassembly before moving them out. Desks, beds, cabinets, wall units, and exercise equipment are usually items that require disassembly and then assembly in your new home. So another major concern is whether to take everything apart yourself or let your moving company take care of it all.
Moving companies can assemble and disassemble your furniture, but the question is whether you want them to provide an extra service. There are both advantages and disadvantages to using this service, depending on the type of move whether it is local or long distance move. Here some helpful information that can help you with your move.
Local moves are also known as intrastate moves. Usually, this type of move is charged based on the hourly rate. The same crew works from the start to the finish (most local moves are completed in a day). In addition to moving services, you can also request additional service such as assembly and disassembly of your furniture. Local movers can carefully and efficiently disassemble and assemble your furniture, but your move is going to take longer, which means you are going to end up paying more for your move. If you are capable of doing it yourself, this could be a chance to save some money on your local move. So the real question is whether this is something you want to do yourself or you are willing to pay extra for this service.
Long distance moves are also known as interstate moves. Basic charges are calculated based on mileage and weight of your shipment. The long distance move can take up to 10 days, depends on the size of your move and the distance. Movers load your goods into their truck. But there is a possibility that another moving crew will be unloading your belongings at the destination city. This means the moving crew that disassembled your furniture will not be there to reassemble it. Do the new movers know what the piece look like? Can they put it back together? Should you reassemble it yourself?
Now you need to decide, whether you want to pay more to your movers or just do it yourself and save some money for another project in your new home. Keep in mind, whatever you do yourself is going to save you time and money.
