What Are My Moving Options?
Full-Service Moving Companies
Full-service Moving Companies will pack, load, drive, and unload all of your belongings. This option typically runs at a higher price because of the time, labor, and materials that your moving company expends in order to provide you with white glove moving services. The cost may be higher, but a full-service mover can lower your stress level by allowing you to worry about other aspects of your move.
If you don’t want to deal with a moving company, you could always move yourself. Rent a truck, buy your own packing materials, and drive yourself to your new home. You can save a lot of money with this option, but you will also have to put in a lot of work to get a move done without the help of a professional moving company. There are also companies that help make your self-move easier. For example, you could rent a truck to drive yourself, but also higher a company to help you pack.
Specialty Moving Companies
While full-service moving companies can handle most moving situations, not all of them are equipped to handle every item that needs to be moved. For example, not every mover knows how to move a piano. Or maybe you need to move something by plane or ship and a typical moving company can’t help you. This is where a specialty moving company comes in – a mover who is an expert at moving the atypical thing you need moved.
