Moving a small household, complete with furniture, clothing, and all the possessions that make a house a home, can be quite a job. You want to consider all of your options when it comes to small household moving and packaging. Considerations to take into account include budget, time constraints, and distances involved.
With that in mind, there are three primary options you can consider when planning a small household moving and packaging:
Do It Yourself
Do it yourself may be the most popular option for small household moving and packaging. It is also the most labor intensive, and may in fact, cost more money than you suspect. The time required to pack all of your possessions, load them into a truck (or series of pickup trucks borrowed from friends, if you’re really trying to do this on the cheap!) and unload it all again can be pretty extensive. Additionally, there’s a high risk of breaking and damaging your possessions, due to inexperience in packing, moving, and transporting them.
Small Household Moving and Packaging Companies
Small household moving and packaging companies specialize in the type of move the average family needs: transporting household possessions from one abode to another. This can be on a short or long distance basis. The advantages of using small household moving and packaging companies include the expertise they bring to the job in regard to both packing and transporting your possessions, a fleet of appropriate vehicles to do the job, strong people capable of hefting heavy furniture, and the stress reduction of knowing the job is in good hands. Additionally, because small household moving and packaging companies specialize in this type of move, their pricing structure tends to be more attractive than conventional moving companies.
Conventional movers are very similar to small household moving and packaging companies, with a few important differences. The primary difference is one of size: small household moving and packaging companies specialize on the small home. Conventional movers handle larger jobs and charge higher prices. If you’ve got a sizeable household, with lots and lots of heavy furniture, a conventional mover may be the best option. Just be prepared to pay for it.
