Moving Home

Moving House The DIY Method

DIY Home Moving.

So you are moving home and have decided to try and save a few dollars by not hiring a firm of professional movers, but instead doing it yourself? Well before you head off the your local U-Hall here are a few things you may wish to consider.

First of all its going to take manpower, and I mean a lot of manpower. It's OK Big Bob from down the road saying that he is happy to help out, but is he willing to stick with the job until its done? Then you are going to need some serious trucking power. Chances are unless you have got your Class One drivers license and the use of a big rig you are going to have to be happy with a box van. That means multiple journeys and a lot more time and effort to get things done.

Another thing to consider is the insurance aspect. No matter how well you pack things accidents happen. Are you really happy to move that 66" TV or 6ft crystal storage unit by yourself? If so, are you happy to make a claim on "your" insurance in the event it arrives in more pieces than it started out in?

Last but not least, do you have the time its going to take to do everything yourself? If not than perhaps hiring some professional help might not be such a bad idea after all.

Like I said, when it comes to the moving thing I have been there and have the scars to prove it. If I can help you learn from my own experiences please don't be afraid to call me on (403) 383-8025
