If you're planning to move and have a tight budget, one of the ways to save on your moving costs is to do it yourself. Most of the times a do-it-yourself move is definitely less expensive than hiring full-service movers or helpers. But don't underestimate how much work and how much money it entails.
Do It Yourself Moves
If you are hiring local movers you need to check if your state requires a license from moving companies, and if yes then verify that company has one. To find this information you should call or visit DOT's website.
Even though you are hiring movers to transport your possessions you should let the moving crew do their job. However, there are other things you can do to help them do the job more efficiently.
How To Help Your Movers
Almost all moving companies offer small scale assistance for local moves. The following is a simple guide on hiring a mover for small jobs.
