There are basically 4 types of services available to you: The first is the “no frills” move. You rent a truck and you pack, load, drive, unload and unpack yourself.
The second option open to you is to arrange with a moving company to provide the truck or container (see our U Can service) and to do the driving. You do the packing and loading at origin and the unloading and unpacking at destination.
Thirdly, you may also wish to consider having the moving company perform a “partial pack” in addition to their other jobs. They will provide the truck or container, pack your fragile items, do the driving, load and unload. You pack and unpack the rest.
Your final option is to have the moving company provide “full service” – they do everything.
Carefully compare the advantages, services and costs of a professional mover as opposed to a do-it-yourself move, based on the range of services available from the movers you call. Then you decide which moving method is best for you.
