The first issue to tackle when planning your own move is deciding whether to use a rental truck or hire a professional moving company. Cost and logistical planning are determining factors in this decision. The cost of gas, accommodations en route, and the possible necessity of hiring labor at origin and destination all contribute to the overall expense of a rental truck move. Coordinating a self move is also complicated. Determining what size truck is necessary for the load, finding friends or paid laborers to help, and loading the truck properly to avoid damage are logistical issues which can quickly become overwhelming.
Hiring a professional mover can reduce the hassles associated with moving, but it by no means makes for a stress free experience. Placing all of your precious possessions in the hands of a stranger is nerve racking to say the least. Using this booklet and our resources will increase the likelihood of a successful move.
