Do it Yourself Moving
There are so many things to consider at moving time, the whole experience can be a worrisome prospect. But you can help yourself make the move go more smoothly by planning and preparing ahead of time.
A do-it-yourself move can look different depending on just how DIY you want to go. From packing up the cartons yourself and letting movers take it from there, to renting a truck and tackling the entire task, there are definitely many variations. Walker’s/Capital, in partnership with United, has great options for whatever degree of moving independence you want to apply to your relocation.
Many of our clients choose to pack themselves. The advantages are many: giving yourself a chance to sort, declutter and thin out accumulated belongings; not having others go through your personal possessions; applying your own organization to the packing up of your house; just to name a few. The disadvantages? Packing is a lot of work! It’s time consuming! And packing your own items can be a slower process since you’ll be evaluating and perhaps reminiscing about many of the items that you pack up.
We sell a wide variety of packing supplies to help you take on the challenge of a self-pack. Boxes to fit everything that should go in a box, newsprint and bubblewrap to protect your goods, packing tape to secure your boxes, mattress and sofa bags to protect your upholstered furniture.
We can also provide you with tips to ensure a damage-free move. From what size box to use to how to properly wrap items and tape up your box – we’ve got the expertise and our handy tips will make your packing experience an efficient success! Check Packing and Moving Boxes and Supplies
