Self Moving Services

One of the newest ways to move that’s quickly gaining popularity is do it yourself, with only a container and transportation provided by a self moving service.

Here’s how it typically works: a self moving company drops off a portable storage container, such as PODS, at your residence. You pack all of your belongings and load them into the container. When you’re ready, the self moving service picks up the container with your goods and transports it to your new residence or to a storage facility. Once the container arrives, it’s again up to you to unload and unpack your belongings.

Some self moving services offer additional services, such loading and unloading the container for you.
Using Self Moving Services
The reason that self moving services have become so popular is because they can be cheaper and more convenient for some people. For example, if you need your things stored for a few days in the container, you can usually do that with a self moving service. You can also work at your own pace packing and loading your things. And because self moving services usually don’t include labor, they can be cheaper as well.

Still, self moving services and pods aren’t for everyone. Some people prefer to hire full-service movers who can pack, load and unload your belongings in just a day. Full-service movers offer convenience and efficiency, but they usually cost more money.

If you have decided to use a self moving service, make sure you ask your friends and family for recommendations. Personal experience is one of the best ways to assure that the self moving service company you selected is reliable.

You may also want to check your local BBB to see if the self moving service you want to work with has frequent or unresolved complaints against it.
Self moving service advantages
Many people wonder what the benefits of getting a self moving service instead of renting a truck are. It’s simply a matter of convenience and preference. With a self moving service, you don’t have the hassles associated with renting a truck, such as gasoline, truck rental insurance and so on. Self moving services can give you the best of both worlds – the convenience of professional transport and the low cost of self moving.
