Moving Dos and Don'ts
When the moving company leaves your property, the most stressful part of the moving process is completed. However, there are still some important things that you have to do after movers leave.
After You Moved In
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
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
Make sure to read "Your Rights and Responsibilities When You Move" before hiring a professional moving company or helpers. It can save you from making costly mistakes and being scammed.
