    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 move. 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 of 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 of 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 an 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.
