DIY Moving Vs. Hiring a Professional Moving Company

Moving to a new location is a complex process, simultaneously full of nostalgia and anticipation. Change of any kind brings some sadness and some excitement. Moving is no different. In the midst of your transition, however, unwanted stress can creep into the mix of emotions. How can you handle your moving process in an efficient and stress-free way? Should you do it yourself? Should you hire a professional company? Both DIY moving and enlisting a professional moving company have their benefits. Discovering which route is best for you is crucial to a smooth transition.

Benefits of DIY Moving

  • With careful planning, DIY moving can be financially beneficial. Some professional moving companies are far from budget-friendly, so choosing to move on your own is a good option if you’re hoping to save money wherever possible. If you own a large vehicle, you may be able to move without renting a truck, which will also save some money.
  • Moving on your own provides a reason to spend quality time with friends and family. Working together toward a common goal is an excellent bonding experience, and your loved ones will probably appreciate an excuse to help you!
  • Your timeline is flexible. Because your schedule is the only one that matters during your move, you can take your time. This is good if you are efficient and organized; however, don’t let this inspire procrastination!

Benefits of Hiring a Professional Moving Company

  • Hiring a professional company will alleviate one, massive burden! Amid a flood of stress, assigning a skilled team to move your belongings allows for one less concern.
  • A professional company will ensure that your belongings are safely transported. The team sent to your door was extensively trained, with plenty of previous experience. The team will understand how to use their specialized equipment well.
  • Hiring a company will free your friends and family to help with other, safer tasks, such as cleaning, organizing, and offering emotional support. Because your friends and family are probably not trained to handle heavy boxes and expensive furniture, you can avoid the risk of injury or damaged items altogether.
  • Your move will be streamlined and fast. A moving company knows how to work on your timeline. You can put a definite arrival date into your calendar and plan all your unpacking activities. The move will be efficient and timely. All your items will leave your old location and arrive at your new home—guaranteed.
  • A professional moving company will have access to everything you could possibly need: a capable team leader, a strong team, packing supplies, moving equipment, and trucks/ trailers. No need to rent moving trucks or containers.
