When it comes to moving house, there is more than one way to get the job done. But it leaves the question of “which option is best for me?”. No matter what your moving situation is, whether you have a huge moving budget or a fairly limited one, a large quantity of belongings or only a handful of items, we’ll explore various moving options and take a close look at what situations they are best suited to.
DIY House Move
A DIY house move is simply that – where you basically handle everything involved in your house move on your own. From packing up all of your belongings, to loading them into your moving vehicle and then transporting them to your new address. The upside to a DIY house move is that you have total control over your move.
A DIY move is also by far the most affordable moving option and is the perfect choice for those who don’t want to spend a great deal on their move. The only downside is that it is the most laborious and time consuming of all the moving options. Furthermore, there’s also the potential of accidentally breaking or damaging your own belongings if you’re not used to moving large items unlike professional movers who do this day in and day out.
Mixture of DIY and ProfessionalMoving Service
This is the perfect option for those who are able to handle some aspects of their move including packing and transporting some of their own belongings. More often people who choose this option just need a bit of a hand with lifting and moving their larger items such as fridges, washing machines and large furniture. By using this particular moving method, you can save a little money by not paying a professional to do all of the work while having some flexibility on your move.
Full Service Professional Move
With a full service move, you won’t even have to lift a finger! With this moving option, the professionals will take care of all the heavy lifting, moving and transportation of your belongings to your new address. They can also handle the pre-packing and unpacking of your furniture and belongings if you need help with this.
Rent A Moving Truck Or Vehicle
If you’re considering a DIY house move, you will probably want to consider renting a moving vehicle like a truck or van if you don’t already have a suitable vehicle to transport your belongings. Choosing this moving option is much like the DIY house move meaning you’ll still have to do a lot of the work by yourself from packing your own belongings and then lifting and moving them onto the vehicle. You’ll then have to drive the vehicle yourself to your new place before unloading your belongings.
Man And Ute
This option is ideal for those who are looking to move small furniture, appliances and boxes up to about a ton in weight. With prices starting from approximately $76 per hour plus a callout fee, hiring a man and ute means you won’t have to do all the heavy lifting on your own as you’ll have help from an additional person.
A backloading service is yet another way to save on your move and ideal for the budget conscious. By choosing to share moving space on a truck with other people’s belongings, you can take advantage of the cost saving benefits that come with this service.
No time to pack all of your belongings? Stress less by hiring a professional pre-packing service. Hiring a professional packer means they will take care of carefully packing your belongings so that you won’t have to – saving you a lot of time and effort.
Plus they will have all the necessary tools and equipment (e.g. moving boxes, tape, bubble wrap and other moving supplies) with them, to get the job done so you won’t have to worry about a thing. With a professional pre-packing service, you can have peace of mind knowing your belongings will be carefully packed and protected by an experienced and skilled team who do this work daily.
