Looking for moving help? You have options! Friends and family can help with simple relocation. For anything more than a few boxes, you might want to consider professional moving assistance. Finding moving help is easier than you may think. Here are 3 ways to find moving help and moving assistance near you.
Packing and moving your own belongings saves money. It also means greater control and flexibility for your moving plans. When you “do it yourself,” you get to decide when to start boxing up, how to organize all your items, and where to unpack each box when you arrive at your new home. For many, more control and lower expenses feels like the obvious choice.
You can find free moving boxes and other moving supplies. Buying boxes costs a good chunk of change. When the average cost of a local move exceeds a thousand dollars, and the average cost of a long-distance move comes close to five thousand dollars, every savings opportunity matters. The costs only go up when you include storage units, move-out cleaning services, move-in help, and more.
