When gearing up for a move, most homeowners come to the crossroad: “Do I hire residential movers, or do I attempt to do it myself?” It’s one of the first decisions you’ll have to make and will set the scope for the work ahead. In the world of moving, one size does not fit all and it’s important you consider a number of factors before coming to a decision.
As full-service, professional Seattle residential movers, the people of North Coast Moving & Storage are committed to making every stage of your relocation a breeze. To help you decide between hiring a movers or tackling a DIY job, consider these key factors:
1. Size and Scope of your Seattle Move
Before you entertain the idea of taking on the relocation all on your own, consider the size and scope of your move. Are you moving your apartment to the building next door? Or do you have to haul a household full of furniture across the city?
The larger your home and the farther you have to travel, the more complex your move will become. Consider your resources and how much available help you have before attempting to do the entire move yourself.
A local move, for example, may be easier if you have family or friends helping you load and unload. Perhaps you have some items in storage that can be moved later. Long distance moves will be more burdensome and logistically complex, as more of an all-at-once job, both on the move-out/loading day and again on your move-in/unloading day.
2. Your Household Relocation Timeline
How many weeks until moving day? And, in that time, how many spare hours can you dedicate to packing up and moving your home? The moving process is a time-consuming ordeal and, if time isn’t on your side, full-service Seattle movers can be a lifesaver.
Should you choose to hire Seattle household movers, finding a company that offers comprehensive packing solutions as well as complimentary move coordination to save you even more time!
3. The Budget for Seattle Household Movers
Your decision may come down to the moving budget you have to work with. You can save money by doing all of your own packing or asking your movers for fragile-only packing services to ensure that your breakables and high value items arrive safely to their destination. If you choose to go the do-it-yourself route, we can provide moving materials and boxes to make the job as easy as possible.
