Deciding to move out soon? Figuring out if you should hire people to help you pack out or if you should do it yourself? meqasa.com is here to make the decision relatively easier to make. It’s easy to think you have very little stuff and you can move them on your own. The same way it’s easy to think you have so much and need the help of movers. The points below should help you decide.
Make an assessment: Look around the house and make a complete list of the things that need to be moved out. Do not think about how long it would take to move them. How many of these items are heavy and require manpower to move? Which of the items won’t fit into your car and how many are they? You also need to consider how far you need to drive. Does it make sense to drive back and forth?
Compare Costs: How much would it cost you to hire a moving car? Remember that doing it yourself is not free. You have to factor in the fuel, depending on the distance you have to drive to the new place, and even the number of times you have to move back and forth. Can the trip between places be done once? That’s if you do the moving yourself.
Getting Help: If you plan to pack out on your own, are you getting help from friends and family? Consider the ages of those helping you. You also need to consider the type of help being offered. Are you being provided with an extra car or are they just going to help you box things up? What’s the price of the help you are getting?
You can save money by moving yourself but you need to weigh the pros and cons. What are the risks and rewards of hiring movers as opposed to doing so yourself? The final decision is yours.
