Hiring Movers vs. DIY Moving

There are many things that people can (and should) do for themselves; besides offering a sense of accomplishment and pride, there’s the peace of mind in knowing that it was done well. But, what if you could have that same feeling by getting someone else to help you accomplish an important task? Someone that could help save you time; enter professional movers.

Many believe that moving from one location to another may not be as big of a job as they think, and that hiring professional movers isn’t necessary, however there are some questions to ask before making any decision:

How much time will it take to pack your things, load your things and drive it all to your new destination?

Do you have additional help? Friends, family, neighbors or colleagues that can lend a hand?

Do you have fragile or special items that will require special handling? Can you move these items yourself? If not, what will it cost to move them?

Will you need to rent additional equipment/supplies/hired-hands to move larger items such as appliances?

Are you confident that you can move your household goods safely?

Are you aware of hidden costs that can creep into your move, such as additional insurance or packing supplies? (source: thespruce.com)
