Moving Services: A Comprehensive Guide
Moving is a big, often-stressful task. Whether you’re moving down the street or across town, it’s never easy to figure out which service will work best for your needs. When it comes to choosing a moving company, there are many options that you need to know about! Click Here to see some of the most popular types of services:
Full Service: This type of service means that the company handles everything from packing and loading all your belongings onto their truck to unloading them at your new home. They also provide insurance protection on all items in case something should happen during transit. It is one of the more expensive options but worth it if you can afford it!
Self Pack & Load Only: For those who don’t mind doing the work but are looking to save money, this is a great option. Sometimes called “Do It Yourself” moving or DIM (as in ‘dim your lights’), you pack and load everything yourself then they transport it for you.
Labor Only: Another cost-effective option, this simply means that you hire the company to transport your belongings but not pack and load them. You are responsible for packing everything on your own so it’s important to make sure all items are properly protected (i.e., packed in sturdy boxes).
Full Service Storage: If you’re moving somewhere without a ready place for storage or just need some space while getting settled at home, self storage is an excellent option. The movers will unpack everything and provide secure lockers where they can be stored until you know what type of arrangement works best for you long-term (more info about self storage here).
Long Distance: If you’re moving across the country, state lines or even internationally this is a great option.
