When planning for an upcoming move, one of the first decisions that must be made is whether the move can be accomplished without help, and if not, which kind of help to hire. While professional moving crews are the most common option, this report from Movers.com explores several other possibilities that may help users reduce their costs.
Although it is possible to avoid hiring a professional crew for some moves, the report suggests that in most cases, users will still be required to rent a moving truck, and possibly certain supplies, such as furniture pads. If additional help is needed, some rental companies may also offer services bundled with the truck rental, including hiring a helper.
The report provides several strategies that can be used for hiring friends or family and suggests that while this method often provides slower results, it can offer significant cost savings. Users can also find several social media and app suggestions in the full report that can help connect them with local workers for hire. However, Movers.com notes that these options rarely provide crews with professional moving experience.
Users who choose to hire a local, professional moving crew, can use the included quotes tool to estimate the price of various services, ranging from a single helper or moving truck rental, to a full-service moving crew. This tool is available to all Movers.com readers and provides estimates for most locations around the USA.
To access this tool, users can click the “get quotes” button on the Movers.com website, and input basic details about their move, and the services they require. These details will be sent to several pre-screened local professionals, and users will receive up to 7 estimates from local experts, with no cost or obligation.
