Are you just about ready to move out of your old childhood bedroom and into your first bachelor pad? Moving for the first time can be an exciting experience. Chances are that you have already begun thinking about the kinds of items and furniture you will want to buy to decorate your new place and really make it your own. Before you can get there, you need to think about hiring the right moving company to help you get your belongings from your parents’ house to your new place. Hiring the right moving company can really take some stresses off the moving process, so you should definitely do your research.
Full-service moving companies are often a popular option due to the amount of services provided. A full-service moving company can help you load, transport and unload your belongings, but if you are not moving a great deal of items or if you are not nervous driving a van or truck, a self-service moving company might be a better option for you. When you look into hiring a self-service moving company, it will include the rental of a moving van or small truck for an allotted period of time. During this time period, you will load your packed items up, they will drive the truck to your new house or apartment, and you will unload your items yourself. While this seems like a great deal of work, and it can be if you are ill-prepared, it can also be highly cost-effective. Hiring a self-service moving company is often far less expensive than a full-service company, which can be a big benefit if you are striking out on your own for the first time and you do not have an unlimited moving budget. Going for a less-expensive option does not mean that you have to forego exceptional service. Your self-service moving company can usually provide you with packing tips and ideas and can also supply you with packing materials such as bungee cords and blankets to stow your items safely.
If you have a group of friends who can assist you, using a self-service moving company does not have to put as much strain on you as it seems. Offer your friends a free meal or drinks if they are willing to help you pack up and unload your belongings. Enlisting your friends can make your moving day quicker and more enjoyable.
