DIY vs Hiring A Mover

When it comes to moving, AA1 understands the importance of your possessions and how hiring a mover could potentially be a stressful process, especially when trying to find a mover that you can trust. Below, we’ve put together a few positives to hiring a moving company or potentially, moving your boxes yourself!

The best part about doing the move yourself is you’re the one person you can trust and count on, especially when it comes to your own possessions. You’ll be responsible for the safety of your belongings and won’t have to deal with the occasional “what if the moving truck goes astray and can’t find the house?” Plus, sometimes trucks may be delayed so you might have to wait on your belongings to arrive. If you do the move yourself, you can start unpacking the moment you get there and get a head start on your new life!

If moving somewhere a couple of hours or states away, hiring a mover might be your best option. Driving or flying to your new destination is hectic enough without being crammed into a vehicle with several boxes, or even worse, having to make multiple trips in order to move all of your belongings.

Saving money is the most major factor in our lives, so moving your possessions yourself is the smartest option, since most moving companies charge by the hour, and if you’re moving somewhere far, it’ll cost you, a lot. But sometimes the money is worth it since hiring a mover will relieve you of most of the moving stress.

Whether you hire a mover or decide to make the move yourself, do what’s best for you and your belongings because at the end of the day, you’re going to a new place with a new start and getting there safely the most important part.
