    Full-Service vs DIY Moving


    When it comes to moving to a new home you want to be in control and ideally you’d like the move to be time and cost effective. Because convenience is key in the society we live in, it’s natural to want to take the do-it-yourself approach to moving. We did research to find common issues that arise with self-service moving and compared them to the full-service options we offer at Carey Moving and Storage.

    DIY Moving = More Stress

    A recent study linked stress to the DIY method to moving. Among other things the study lists the most stressful moving tasks as packing and unpacking; loading and unloading a moving truck without professional help; compiling a home inventory and transporting belongings without professional help. These tasks were deemed stressful because in the self-service moving process they became difficult, time-consuming and expensive.

    At Carey Moving and Storage we combat these common moving stressors by providing a variety packing, crating, hauling, moving and storage services for local moves, long distance moves and even international moves. Some of the moving services we offer include inventory of your packed items; packing and unpacking of your goods; loading, unloading and careful delivery; disassembly and reassembly service; storage-in-transit; vehicle transportation and customized crating.

    The decision to embark on a self-service move or hire a full serving moving company is up to you. If the DIY option is best for you and your family – we provide affordable packing material. If you’re looking to hire a full service moving and storage company – we pride ourselves in providing trusted and time-tested methods for a most successful relocation.
