Moving in Salt Lake City: DIY or Hire Movers?

July 13, 2013 0

Most Utah residents hate moving out. This is because it involves a lot of work and decision making. In fact, one of the things that need to be decided on immediately is whether to hire a moving company or move out DIY-style.

 When asking the DIY or hiring movers question, individuals need to consider budget, time, moving distance and the actual move difficulty. Moving isn’t just about packing belongings, putting them in the car and unpacking them at the new house. It involves a lot of heavy lifting, categorizing, and delicate handling. Make the right decision by finding out more about these two moving methods:

DIY Moving

DIY moving is a moving method that’s usually preferred by unmarried individuals with minimal possessions or an individual with a lot of friends who offered help. Aside from these, DIY moving is recommended for individuals who are more hands-on, have lots of spare time and have no physical/medical conditions. This method is not recommended to people who are on a time constraint, don’t have any sense of organization or don’t have any assistance from other people.

DIY moving can be a fun way for friends and family to bond, too. Nothing says cooperation and family strength than a group of people hauling heavy furniture or appliance, right?

Hiring Movers

For those who want to move out of the old house in Salt Lake City and move in to the new one in a day, hiring local movers is the way to go. Acquiring the services of a moving company gives you access to multiple muscled men who can lift cumbersome furniture with ease. Because these professional movers know what they are doing, they will work efficiently and in an organized manner. When hiring movers, there is no need to think about acquiring and driving a transport vehicle, getting moving boxes, lifting, loading, and unloading of stuff. All you need to worry about is settling into your new home and keeping an eye out for your belongings. You don’t have to do a thing!

Before making the final decision, it is important to note that both moving methods require a certain budget. Do advanced research and make estimates as to how much each moving method will cost you. Of course, pick out the method that will save you money with less effort. If you are still undecided, ask yourself these important questions:

1.)         How far will you be moving?

2.)         How much stuff will you bring?

3.)         How much time will you allot for the move?

4.)         Do you have any children or pets?

5.)         Do you have items that require special handling?

6.)         Do you own a lot of large or heavy furniture?

7.)         Will you be able to rally enough help from friends or family?

8.)         Do you have sufficient budget for moving insurance?

9.)         Are you equipped with the appropriate packing materials and tools?

Once you have honestly answered the above mentioned questions, you should be able to decide on whether to hire a reputable moving company or go and do it yourself.
