Options to Consider Before Pickup & Delivery Services
In theory, a self-move may be easier and more economical,
however, in practice, this is not always the case. Before
deciding whether to handle your own move, here are some factors
Pickup and Delivery Services (PUD)
An alternative to a self-move is a pickup and delivery service.
Moving companies that offer this service drop off an adequate-sized
trailer at your home. You will have at least two days to load
all of your items at your convenience. You will still need
the help of several family members and friends or hired moving
labor for your large furniture and boxes. You should have
everything packed before the trailer is dropped off. You can
control the cost of your move because you only pay for the
space in the trailer that you use.
Once you've finished loading, you call the office to schedule
the pickup of your move. The trailer is transported by a professional
moving truck driver to your destination.
You still maintain the majority of responsibilities as you
would in a self-move, however this service saves you the troubles
of driving an unfamiliar vehicle as well as the difficulties
of the tedious long distance drives.
Unlike a rental truck, expenses such as toll fees, gas,
flat tires, and engine blowouts are covered by the moving
Hiring moving labor
If you have large furniture and appliances that need to
be loaded and you cannot secure the services of enough friends
or family members, you should consider contacting a local
moving company and hire workers by the hour. They will save
you from having to lift heavy items. A big advantage is because
they are professional movers they will know how to maximize
the space in the trailer. You can save money because you only
pay for the space in the trailer that you use.
If you require additional help at your new home, contact
a local moving company in that area and reserve workers to
be present when your shipment is delivered.
