Self-Moves Growing in Popularity

Self-Moves Growing in Popularity

Do you know how many people move every year? Well, according to the United States Census Bureau, more than 15% of the country’s population relocates every year. Each year, people relocate during the warmer months, typically because it’s an easier time of year to deal with the stress of moving, but a relocation can take place any time of year.

When it comes to moving, the most familiar option is probably to hire a moving company to pack up all your stuff and transport it between your old and new homes. But, this is not the only way you can move. There are quite a few options these days and one option that seems to be growing in popularity is the self-move.

Sometimes, you just don’t need all the things that full service moving companies have to offer. That’s what makes the self-move so great. A self-move is basically a do-it-yourself move but with a twist.

Today, more and more moving companies offer a self-move service, which basically takes all the convenience of a full-service move and the control of a truck rental. What many people like about the self-move is the price tag that comes with it – it is often a great deal.

Basically, when you make your reservation, the moving company will drop off a trailer that you will load and secure for the next two days. Once you’ve finished packing, the moving company picks up the trailer and delivers it to your new home.
