Moving everything on your own - the DIY way
We might consider saving costs by moving things from one place to another on our own instead of hiring professionals. If you intend to do so, consider these few things before you start!
1. Take account
Consider the amount of things that will be loaded into your car/rented vehicle so everything will fit. Set aside the costs involved for vehicle rental, fuel, and packing materials.
2. Plan a schedule
You can move at your own target, but be on schedule so as not to reach your new home only when the sun sets.
3. Get ahead of yourself
You can procrastinate especially the packing bit but if you start early, you will have a lot more time to fix any issues that could potentially arise.
4. Be careful
Always seek help whenever necessary and do not over-exert yourself. Also remember to have all the insurance ready to safeguard your items and your own self.
You can always do things your way but never over-estimate your own capabilities. It never hurt for professionals to come and lend a helping hand.
