stockton residential movers services

If you’re planning a residential move, you’ve probably gone back and forth with what type of moving you want to do. When it comes down to it, the decision to DIY or hire professionals is based on a variety of factors with the most important being time, money and the complexity of the move.

Before making a decision about hiring professional Stockton residential movers or a DIY move, it’s best to understand all of your options. Consider the following questions and residential moving tips when making your decision:

How Much Stuff am I Moving?  It seems like an obvious question, but there are many intricacies that affect how much you have. Take a good look at your entire household and consider the weight of all of your goods. Knowing how much you are planning to move and what it weighs (approximately) will be useful in helping you determine whether renting a truck for a DIY move or hiring professional residential movers is the right way to go.

How Complex is My Move?  If you’re moving standard household items, you may be completely fine choosing to load, transport and unload your stuff by yourself. However, if you have a collection of fine art or antiques, or if you have high value electronics and appliances that require dismantling, professional movers are the safer choice.

Who do I Want to Pack my Belongings?  Can packing be done by yourself? Absolutely! However, it’s important to understand what making that decision means. If you pack by yourself, be aware that valuation coverage will not pay out on any items packed by their owner, unless the exterior of the box is damaged. Also, if you pack your own belongings, you are responsible for getting moving supplies and moving boxes.
