Options to Consider Before Pickup & Delivery Services (PUD) .:

In theory, a self-move may be easier and more economical, however, in practice, this is not always the case. Before deciding whether to handle your own move, here are some factors to consider:

Pickup and Delivery Services (PUD)

An alternative to a self-move is a pickup and delivery service. Moving companies that offer this service drop off an adequate-sized trailer at your home. You will have at least two days to load all of your items at your convenience. You will still need the help of several family members and friends or hired moving labor for your large furniture and boxes. You should have everything packed before the trailer is dropped off. You can control the cost of your move because you only pay for the space in the trailer that you use.

Once you've finished loading, you call the office to schedule the pickup of your move. The trailer is transported by a professional moving truck driver to your destination.

You still maintain the majority of responsibilities as you would in a self-move, however this service saves you the troubles of driving an unfamiliar vehicle as well as the difficulties of the tedious long distance drives.

Unlike a rental truck, expenses such as toll fees, gas, flat tires, and engine blowouts are covered by the moving company.

Hiring moving labor

If you have large furniture and appliances that need to be loaded and you cannot secure the services of enough friends or family members, you should consider contacting a local moving company and hire workers by the hour. They will save you from having to lift heavy items. A big advantage is because they are professional movers they will know how to maximize the space in the trailer. You can save money because you only pay for the space in the trailer that you use.

If you require additional help at your new home, contact a local moving company in that area and reserve workers to be present when your shipment is delivered.
