Best Advise On Moving Options For Self Movers

Jul 7, 2008
Do you have to move yourself and your family because you're tired of where you live? So many people move every year for one reason or another. So if this you then join in on the millions of others just like you who just want a change of scenery. However, there is a small price to pay for that in terms of moving costs and packing properly yourself for that move. I'll provide good tips and suggestions that can help you with all that.

First thing is first, okay so you decided to up and go. Typically this is done on short notice. Even though it feels good right now, it may not later on. So now your wondering what could be better options for you to save some time and money just incase you decide to turn around and come right back if you can't find work or it just doesn't turn out to be what you expect.

You can always choose to rent a moving truck. If you decide to go this route, keep in mind that you have to pack, load, drive the moving truck to where ever it is that you are going to and then unpack the truck to have it back to the lot within a two day period. That's a lot of work to go through. Just make sure you accurately estimate all that you will be bringing so that you don't pay for more than you should in the size truck you rent.

If you have to travel clear across the country and don't want to drive a moving tuck yourself then your next option would be to hire a door to door service. You still need to pack your own belongings but at least they get loaded up onto a large moving van and brought for you to your new location. You can get really good advice for packing computers, dishes, musical instruments and any other items of importance on the web.

Take advantage of that because the last thing you want to do is to start having to replace those items due to improper packing. You can contact packing and supply company's right in your town for instructions and supplies to help you. You can even purchase them from moving companies even without having to rent a truck from them.

If you're a bit in the transient side and money is obviously no object then another option would be to hire professional full service packers and movers to come and relocate you and your family. The company sends a crew to do all the packing, relocate, and then unpack your home contents. That is great if you can afford to do so.

Last but not least is to rent portable moving containers, also known in the industry as Storage or moving Pods. The great thing about this service is that you have up to a month to keep the unit. You pack it though, at your own pace. When you are done packing the unit, the company comes and picks it up from you and drives it to your new destination. If you're not ready to unload it, it can be stored in local storage until you are ready. You also get to keep the key. This is a reasonable option for saving you money on gas and tolls.

So I hope this information is helpful in thinking about your moving options. You can gather valuable moving and packing tips from the internet on moving options a swell. Always get several quotes and always make sure you get them in writing for your own protection. Good luck.
