Avoid A Bad Do-It-Yourself Move
Mafia Movers understands how tough a Do-It-Yourself Move can be without proper knowledge, equipment, and man power. You may think that doing it yourself will save more money, but there are somethings to know and consider.
Are you a busy person? Do the math, you might consider how much your time is worth and to compare that to how much money you’d save doing it yourself versus how much time is saved hiring a mover.
Do you have the right equipment, skill, and man-power to move all your stuff? If you’ve got family or friends helping you out, are you covered if they get hurt? If something gets broken, if your items insured? Understanding your limitations and liabilities is important.
Unless you move often or do this for a living, you may hurt yourself if you don’t use the correct techniques. Learn proper lifting techniques before trying to move heavy items. This will save you possible back pain or damage.
At this point, do-it-yourself moves need a way to move all the stuff, is back and forth trips in your (or family / friend) truck saving you money with all the gas being used? If you rent a truck, pay attention to the OVERALL cost, versus the by-day cost. Be aware of rental fees and costs of mileage to your new home.
Consider a buffer in calculating mileage, you may end up forgetting something at the old house and have to return to it.
Over estimate what size truck you’ll need, commonly, people underestimate what size truck they’ll need. You may save money just to get that larger size than to make two trips or check out two trucks.
