If you’re like most people out there, when you think of moving on your own, you probably picture having to pack up your stuff and haul it from your previous home to your next. Well, that isn’t completely accurate. There are now a number of self-service moving options to consider.
Self-service moving companies have exploded in popularity lately – in both the commercial and residential sectors. With this type of service, the moving company will take care of transporting your stuff for you. It will be up to you, however, to pack everything up that you want relocated, so that it can be moved for you.
When you choose a self-service moving company, you don’t have to drive the moving truck, which is a big deal for many of us. This one big difference allows you a greater flexibility than you would receive with either a rental truck or a full-service mover. You can pack up your home or office on your own schedule and then set up your moving day with the company.
Almost every self-service moving company will provide you with a portable storage unit option. You can let this unit sit in your driveway, on the curb, or in the parking lot of your office. It is weather-tight and secure, so you will be able to place important paperwork, equipment, and household goods in it without worrying. How great does that sound?
