Self Moving


Before deciding whether to handle your own move, take a look at these factors

  • Do you have the time needed to do the entire job?
  • Packing, loading, unloading and driving can be very time-consuming.
  • How many items do you need to move?
  • Remember that heavy furniture and appliances may be difficult to handle.
  • Are you physically capable of loading and unloading on both ends of the move?
  • This is a hard work. Long driving accompanied with carrying heavy boxes is a very tedious process.
  • Will you have family or friends to help you? Always have people to help you through the relocation process.
  • Remember, moving companies have liability insurance for their employees in case of injury and obtaining extra insurance for your self-move might be more expensive.
  • Do you have a license to drive a big truck? You may need a special permit to drive one.
  • What about the rest of the family, children, and pets? There may not be enough space in the truck for your family and your pets. You'll have to make provisions for them to follow in a separate car or to reserve flight seats.
  • If you are making a long-distance move, factor in the costs of food and lodging.
