When you search for a moving and shipping company, most of them say if they are full-service companies or if they can park the truck in front of your house and help you load stuff you have packed while others will only transport your stuff from one point to another.
Now, you need to understand which is best for you. Whether you want to just look at things being packed, loaded, and moved or you want to pack as much as you can and take help for the rest, it is up to you. You should hire a moving company that allows you to manage your entire shipping process instead of selling you a pre-determined moving package.
Go through each and see what you want to opt for.
In a full-service moving or shipping, all you need to do is fold your hands and look at the process. In a full-service package, the team of the shipping company arrives at your place and starts the work. They take inventory of every item that is to be shipped, they bring in packing material, they pack each and everything, sometimes they even pack antiques, appliances and large furniture, they load things into the truck, transport it to the doorstep of your new home and unload your stuff. As they provide you A-Z service, they charge higher than a partial service. If you are too busy to do anything on your own, full-service package is a great idea.
If you think you can spare some time and you can pack your things (or some of them) on your own, you can very well do that. You can pack things, and if you need assistance, you can ask the moving company for it such as they can pack antiques, furniture, or load things into the truck and transport them to the doorstep and unload things for you. Partial service shipping costs lesser than full-service shipping and is suitable if you want to save some money.
As the name suggests, you can do everything on your own. A DIY is best when your move involves packing smaller and lighter items of your small studio apartment. If you can only afford hiring a truck or you can spare time on packing things your way for a short-distance move, the shipping companies guide you every step of the way in packing, loading and unloading your goods while offering their truck for transporting your goods from one place to another. Yeah, that’s all they offer- their truck.
You can choose the desired package for your shipping needs. You also need to consider other factors such as time, money, and the type of move you are making before choosing the service. You cannot choose a DIY for an international move, can you?
