As if moving wasn’t already full of enough decisions from what to take, where to live, and how to get settled in a new town, probably the biggest question that will help you get started is whether or not to hire a professional to handle your move. Packing up all of your belongings and sending them down the road isn’t something you do everyday and for many people the beginning of such a project can be a little overwhelming.
The first task is to decide how you will address your needs.
In the great DIY versus professional debate, price budgets are usually the biggest determinants. If your main concern is adhering to a tight budget, perhaps moving yourself is the best option. Gathering up a good group of friends to help pack and load your belongings could allow you greater flexibility and lower costs. However, if you are unable to devote the time to coordinate the move over the concerns of money, your best bet is to hire a professional full-service mover.
The typical do-it-yourself move requires:
1.) Ample planning
5.) Renting the truck
6.) Planning your route
7.) Securing storage–a possibility if you can’t move everything in right away or you are downsizing
