Census data suggests that approximately 10% of Americans move annually, but many are unaware of the wide range of options when hiring a moving company. This new report launched by Movers.com explains the various levels of assistance available from most professional moving companies, and how to estimate their cost.
More information about moving with or without professional help, renting a moving truck, and estimating the costs for full-service movers can be found in the full report, at https://www.movers.com/truck-rental-guides/renting-a-moving-truck-vs.-hiring-professional-movers.html
While each moving company may differ, this recently published guide explores several levels of service available when planning a move, ranging from truck rentals to full-service packing and unpacking. The report also includes a simple tool readers can use to contact pre-screened local movers for up to 7 no-cost, no-obligation rate quotes, on an upcoming move.
Although there are several factors to consider when deciding whether to hire a professional, the report from Movers.com suggests that the decision often comes down to a comparison between the effort required and the cost to hire a professional. However, the report also discusses the improved control homeowners can have by moving themselves, and the increased speed of hiring a professional.
The full guide includes a complete list of benefits and drawbacks for each method, as well as suggestions for optimizing various options. Readers can also use the included rate estimator tool to get in contact with local professionals and determine the exact rates for any services they may be interested in, or to find a budget-friendly local mover.
Homeowners can also find several cost-reduction strategies in the report, such as information about the most cost-effective times to rent a truck and suggestions for negotiating with professional movers.
An excerpt from the report explains, “If you’ve got a move coming up, you’re probably debating between renting a moving truck and doing it yourself or hiring professional movers. There is no best answer, but there are a lot of moving parts to a move that go unnoticed. Some factors to consider include cost, time, and moving skills. Here’s a short breakdown of things to consider before setting up your move.”
