DIY Long Distance Moving
A long distance move is considered as a move more than 50 miles from your current home, many times to a different state. As the moving industry continues to evolve it will consistently become easier and more affordable to relocate long distances. With so many options available to you it can become overwhelming, but it is important to remember that our moving labor services are flexible and tailored to your needs.
A do-it-yourself long distance move is an attractive option because it allows you to remain in control of as much, or as little, of the move as you desire. DIY moving is also much more affordable than traditional full service moving companies and van lines, especially for the growing number of people who are moving without the financial support from their employer. Let's take a look at the different transportation and storage options available for a DIY long distance move.
Moving Storage Containers
If you have sold your home and have not yet purchased a new one, or if you are moving but unsure of where, a portable storage container might be a great fit for you. A storage container allows you to load your container and then store it until you are ready to unload, wherever that might be.
Moving Truck Rental
A moving truck rental is the most popular way to complete a DIY long distance move. A rental truck is primarily different from the other transportation options because it is the only option that allows you to remain in full control of your move. It also offers the benefit of being the quickest method.
Drive down any major interstate and you'll likely pass countless "You Load, We Drive" trailers, although you may not recognize them. A moving freight company offers two major benefits for long distance moving - First, you don't have to drive the truck. Second, because you are sharing space with other movers your overall moving cost is usually very affordable.
