If you feel that a full service move is too expensive, you can consider self moving, which involves doing all the packing yourself, and driving a rented self moving truck to the destination. This may be the cheapest option, but you need to consider how much you will have to spend on gas, tolls, hotels, and food.
Packing your things yourself and driving a self move truck long distance involves a lot of hard work, and you also need to have time to spare. It will take you some time to get used to handling a large truck, which is very different from driving a car.
You need to look for new and well maintained self moving trucks provided by a reliable company. Poorly maintained self move trucks may break down on the highway and may even put your life at risk.
You may have to get a special permit to drive large self moving rental trucks, and may have to arrange for extra insurance. A lot of heavy lifting will be involved, and you will have to ask family and friends to help you. You may have to make separate arrangements to move your family and pets.
If you don’t like the idea of doing it all yourself, you can consider self service moving, which is slightly more expensive. Self pack moving is a convenient option that will allow you to avoid driving a truck across the country.
A self service moving company will drop one or more crates or a trailer at your home, in which you can pack your things. After you have finished packing, the self pack moving company will pick up the crate or trailer and deliver it to the destination, where you can unpack.
It pays to obtain at least three moving quotes in writing from professional service providers, and to check their track record before you pick one of them.
