The Benefits of a Full-Service Move
When transporting household goods you need to be aware of what type of service you’re actually paying for, because there are a few different kinds. Self-service household goods moving is when you pack and someone drives the truck for you. Full-service is when a company does all the packing, moving and unpacking – it’s a lot more involved than a self-service move, but luckily not for you. Full-service moving is expensive but certainly worth it if you’re moving your entire home across this vast country of ours, as all the hassles of packing your furniture, loading it onto the moving van and then driving it that distance are taken care of. This inevitably takes a lot of stress off of you and makes the entire moving experience that much easier.
Moves are time-consuming, to say the least. A full-service move will actually help you better manage all your affairs while you’re dealing with a household move, because let’s face it – time waits for no man, as the saying goes, and that includes you. You still have a life to live, errands to run and generally things to do that a move, particularly one you have to choreograph and orchestrate yourself, can seriously hinder. Having someone else handle all of that frees you up to handle the normal day-to-day up until the move. You’ll need to be there to sort of supervise and make sure the moving crew is helpful and expedient, of course, but full-service movers are trained in the art of packing things in boxes, loading them onto the truck, safely transporting them and also unpacking your things at your destination.
