Options for a DIY Move
Renting a truck or storage container and hiring a moving labor service is another way to save money. It is a little more complicated since it involves hiring movers or a couple of strong men to load and unload your belongings. But often it is less expensive than hiring a full service moving company.
Moving Labor Services
Hiring local day labor is another option to move. They might offer you flat or lower hourly rates, but there are plenty of scam artists out there. Therefore rather than taking the risk of dealing with day laborers that have not much of a track record, it is far better to hire professional movers that have been in the business for years. Another important factor to consider is their reviews.
Professional Movers vs Day Laborers
In every moving contract, there is a disclaimer stating what the company will not transport. Most companies will not move cash, jewelry, personal valuable items, and collections.
