Moving: Hire a Team or Do It Yourself?

Deciding to move and planning the process of such a move requires a lot of work, dedication, time and physical/mental energy. With so many different aspects required to start this project, most people would contact the best movers for the job to receive additional help. What if you want to do it on your own, however? Is this route a good idea, and if so why or why not should it be avoided? Here at Augusta Movers, we would like to go into detail and answer this question for you.

How Many Belongings Do You Own?

If you want to perform a move on your own, have you considered how many items you will need to be packing and moving in & out? A big answer as to how well you can perform a DIY move depends on the volume of overall items you will be moving from point A to point B. Once you become aware of this information, you can better determine whether this step may or may not be for you. It will also be important information if you decide on hiring a moving company, as they will base most of their quotes off of this information (in case you want a general idea of how much it will cost).

How Far Away Are You Moving?

Another important factor you’ll want to consider is distance. Are you moving close by or across the province/country? This type of move will greatly affect how difficult a DIY move will be on you & how much money hiring a moving service will cost. The important distinction to make is that implementing a DIY move will require a lot of physical and mental labour, whereas hiring a moving company will take a lot of that stress off (as long as you have the financial means to do so). 

Can You Receive Help From Friends/Family?

In general we advise against anyone doing a move on their own. This is due to the sheer amount of work that goes into a move as a whole. One person in charge of this type of project can lead to not-so-great outcomes, that is unless you receive help from friends and family. 

Ever heard of the phrase “two heads are better than one”? Well, in terms of most moving projects, we believe that five or six heads are better than one! This information may be obvious, but the more people you have working on a project, the less work falls onto you and the easier it will be. Even with all of this help, however, the lack of moving experience your friends and family will likely have may come as a hindrance during the process. It makes sense — mistakes are much more common when you aren’t hiring experts to do the job.
