Avoid Moving Horrors by Doing it Yourself
Moving house is not only difficult but can be dangerous, too. Being in this situation makes you very vulnerable from scams. If you're luckier, then maybe a pile of boxes might face you in your house. You won't know which of these should you open first because you forgot what is the contents of each box.
Horror stories during the house moving do not end there. But you can avoid creating another horror story by moving all by yourself.
Why would you hire a company if you can only pack your things and deliver all these to your new house? But you need a good packing knowledge and a big vehicle to do this. Don't worry because if you don't have any of these, you can choose to have these.
For the packing, reading some tips online will help you save making packing errors. For instance, you will learn how to properly pack glass wares, china wares, and furniture the right way. You will also learn how to use your luggage as a storage material. There will be a lot of packing tips you will learn. But here's the super ultimate tip: pack as early as possible. You don't want to regret that you chose partying in the weekend instead of packing your things up.
For the transportation, you can borrow a pick up or truck if you know someone who has any of these. If you don't, you can instead rent a truck from moving companies. This company will just give you the truck and you take care of the loading, driving, and unloading of your things.
By moving all by yourself, you can at least feel safer because you are in-charge of everything and you know you don't want to mess any of your things.
