How To Move Without A Moving Company

If you’re in the process of moving, you don’t necessarily need to hire a moving company. Hiring movers is only one option of many when it comes to getting your stuff from place to place. If you want to save some money on your move, you should check out alternatives to hiring movers.  

Containers

If you don’t want to drive your own moving truck, but still could use some assistance on your move, you should take a look at container moving. You fill up the container with all of your stuff, and the company will get the container from place to place for you. This is especially helpful if you are doing a long-distance move.

Self-Service

You can always rent your own truck, pack your own stuff, and head out the door on your own. You’ll pay for gas and mileage, but have control of your own timeframe. Moving companies often have many different resources available to help you in the process including boxes and packing supplies. National companies provide convenient truck returns over most parts of the country where you’ll be, so it’s easy to get the truck back. 

Ship Your Stuff

If you happen to be moving a long distance, sometimes, it’s more cost effective to let the big stuff go. Ship items like clothes, books, DVDs, and other personal belongings that can’t easily be replaced. Sell big items like beds and sofas. 

You can use many different kinds of shipping services, or even use air cargo to get your things from one place to another. While you’ll need to purchase some furniture when you get to your final destination, this could be a good option, especially if you’re looking to start over, or if you don’t own a whole lot of furniture and large items.

Use Your Car

Your car is always an option to help you move no matter where you are moving to. Whether you’re moving across the country or just across town, you’ll probably need to pack your car. It’s also a lot of fun to have your car for a road trip on long distances. This way, you’ll have a lot of stuff with you, but you can still travel and see many things that you wouldn’t have seen otherwise.

Tips For Packing The Car

You want to be able to get the maximum packing space out of your car for the move, no matter how far you’re going. First, you should plan how you’ll pack ahead of time. You don’t want to save the task of packing the car for moving day. Also, you need to make sure that there will be room for every living thing that needs to go into the car like children and pets. Those are important and you definitely don’t want them all squished in between some boxes during a long move!
