Anyone who has moved house will at some point have to answer one question: Do I hire a local mover or do I execute the heavy lifting by myself? Three Men And A Truck paints a whole picture of the cost implications of both alternatives.
The Big Picture
Every individual has a different need when moving. The needs of a college kid moving into a hostel cannot be similar to those of a family of six moving into a house. The same comparison can be made between a business and a household. The picture of each move is painted below.
Do It Yourself (DIY)
The DIY route has one advantage that stands out. It saves you, the client, finances. However, looking at moving singularly from a financial perspective, fails to tell the larger story. The disadvantages that accrue from going the DIY route are listed below:
Labor intensive: This is the first commitment you make when you opt to go the DIY route. Absent any aide from family or friends this physical exertion could be detrimental to your health. If you are endowed with physical strength, this could be looked at as a work out of sorts.
Non- Monetary Costs: In mind are activities such as driving, packaging, and packing/ unloading. This is weight that you bear solo when you decide to go the DIY route. In terms of efficiency, carrying such weight upon your shoulders solo could negatively impact on your productivity – this will be manifested by time lags in meeting targets, high stress levels, and in worst case scenarios accidents (ranging from dropping household goods to bender fenders on the road).
Hopefully you get the larger picture. Outside financial commitment the DIY packs significant inbuilt costs. Three Men And A Truck gives pros and cons of hiring a local mover.
Hiring a Local Mover
A local mover requires a financial commitment from you the client. That is the inbuilt ‘disadvantage’ that comes from this mover. The advantages are listed below:
Cheap Local Movers: The element of expense is relative. Cheap local movers do exist. A mover could charge anything from $ 100 and looked at critically, this is relatively cheap. You get a truck and personnel at one go with money.
Experience: A local mover comes with the advantage of repeatedly doing this task over a period of time. This means that challenges that come with packaging, loading, and navigating through spaces are smothened. This saves time and minimizes stress associated with moving.
Warranties: Local movers provide warranties that you cannot secure on the DIY route. These include insurance packages offered by movers, tracking software to highlight the movement of your goods, and the use of algorithms to give an accurate estimate based on distance and date you move- thus ensuring you get value for money.
Moving house? You have two options: DIY or hiring a cheap local mover. The picture painted above evidently suggests that if you think of saving costs whilst moving then hiring a local mover is your best bet. Think about it, contact Three Men And A Truck today.
