Moving to a new home is an exciting adventure, but it can also be a stressful experience. One way to minimize some of the stress is to hire professional movers to do the loading and unloading for you. However, while hiring professional movers can make things a lot easier, it also gets quite expensive. Sometimes the expense of moving can be one of the biggest causes of stress. Fortunately, there are a couple of affordable do-it-yourself moving options for the budget conscious movers.
Moving Truck Rental
Renting a moving truck is a very common solution for DIY movers. As you’ll be loading and unloading the truck as well as driving it yourself, the only moving costs are moving supplies, gas, and the truck rental fees. There are many different truck rental companies that will give you a quote based on the size of truck and miles you will be driving.
Another option is to rent a moving pod. The company you rent from will drop a pod off at your location for you to pack at your own convenience. After you've filled the pod, they’ll pick it up and transport it to your destination. You can even have it go to storage for awhile if you need to.
The advantage of using a moving pod over renting a truck is that you won’t have to spend hours or days driving a huge moving truck. There are several companies providing moving pod solutions, and it’s easy to compare prices with just a little bit of online research.
The Right Moving Tools
Regardless of which DIY moving method you choose, it is important to have the right tools for the job. If you watch professional movers in action, almost every one of them uses moving straps when handling furniture, appliances and other bulky or heavy objects. Our ShoulderDolly moving straps are an affordable way to make the loading and unloading safe, quick, and easy. The cost of the straps are a tiny fraction of what a professional moving company would charge to do the loading and unloading for you.
