Options for a DIY Move

Planning a local move? Then no need to fret because there are a wide array of options and services that you can readily choose from. A local move may be easier to do than a cross country move, but that doesn't mean that you shouldn't prepare for it. Sorting out your stuff and calling in the movers can be quite stressful, so it's best that you do it right from the very start. Here's a short guide to help you start planning today!

Self Drive Truck Service

One of the most popular options for the DIY move is to get a truck and drive it yourself. Not only does this give you full control over your move, but it's also the most cost efficient option. If you're on a limited budget, this is the best option for you. Companies offering this service usually charge a flat rate per day with an additional charge per mile so it's not going to be that expensive for local moves. The charge will also depend on the size of the truck so make sure to choose a right truck that can hold all your belongings.

If you're not completely sure about the size of your truck, don't hesitate to ask the truck rental company for recommendations. Just give them a rough estimate on how many boxes and rooms you'll be transporting.

The self-drive option may save you some cash; it's not going to save you on the effort.

You'll still need to find a way to load and unload your stuff during the move and it, of course, could be done through moverscorp.com.

Full Service Movers

If you're looking for convenience and not really concerned with the cost, then hiring full service movers would be the better option for you. Allowing the professionals take care of everything doesn't just ensure safety for your belongings, but it also means that there will be less risk of damage during transport. This is the best option for you if you'll be moving heavy or fragile items. most full service movers will charge a flat rate by the hour so the whole cost will depend on how much time is spent packing up the items, loading it on the truck, transporting everything and unloading the whole bulk in the new location. And this service could be arranged through MoversCorp website.

The more stuff that needs to be packed and the further the distance, the more money you'll need to set aside. Full movers will also add an additional charge to moving specialty items like a grandfather clock or a piano so be sure to ask for a breakdown of the extra charges before you agree to the service agreement.

Before you choose a full-service provider, make sure to do a full background check on the company and read customer reviews. It's important that you find a reputable and trustworthy company to take on the job. You should also try to look up reviews online to get a feel for their service. Ask about insurance options in case any unfortunate events occur. It's always better to be safe than sorry.

Moving Labor

If you're looking for a combination of the 2 options mentioned, then you should hire moving labor. Also known as at the partial DIY move, this option is significantly more affordable than hiring a full-service mover. Hired labor will come to help you pack, load and unload your stuff, but they won't be responsible for the transport.

This is the perfect option for those who already have resources for transportation but just don't have the time to pack everything. It's also great for jobs that consume a lot of energy and time like loading and unloading.

This type of service usually is charged by the hour so it's important that you try to get as much sorted out before calling in the pros.
