About Moving Self Service If you are moving, you have probably considered hiring a company to help you with the move. While the idea of letting someone else pack and load up your things and drive them across town is attractive, it can also be very expensive.
Instead, why not consider managing the move yourself? You can rent a truck, pickup or van for cheap, and then box up your home decor and furniture and off you go. You could also consider getting a home storage container that you fill up, and then a truck comes, attaches the unit like a trailer, and does the hauling part for you.
Of course, it depends on how far the distance is between your old house and your new one. If you are moving locally, you could rent a van and move your household in a few trips, but if you moving a long distance you may want a big trailer that can hold all your furniture and belongings in one trip.
Self service moving is not just for residential moves either. You could also rent a truck to move your business from a small office to a large commercial facility if you are a young business that is rapidly expanding. Then you can use the savings to find more clients.
You should be careful that you are physically capable of moving yourself though, as many of your items may be very heavy. You might also consider if you feel comfortable driving a van or truck. If you are able and willing though, you can save a lot of money by moving your own things.
