Is it better to move yourself or hire movers? While you’re the only one who can make that decision, we can help you figure out which method is best for you.

Moving Yourself

You’re in Control of the Process

When you move yourself, you have control over the moving process. You can set your own timeline for getting your belongings sorted, packed, and ready to go. You can take the care needed to pack delicate items, choose how to pack in an order that makes sense to you, and ensure your belongings don’t get damaged along the way. You also get to decide and load the truck at your current home, making it easier to unpack in your final destination.


Depending on how much stuff you have to pack and whether you’re paying for packing and moving services or just movers, you can probably save some money moving yourself. Moving companies charge by the size and weight of the items you have, so the more you have to move, the more expensive it will be. Plus, even if you have to pay a few friends or family members to help with the heavy lifting. You can probably get away with paying them less than you would professional movers.

Hiring Movers

Streamlined, Efficient Process

If you’ve never moved before, you may not know the best way to plan your move efficiently. You can take the guesswork out of the timeline needed to meet your moving deadline by hiring movers. If you also hire them for packing services, the process is much easier for you. Once you’ve got the inventory figured out, the movers handle the packing process and get the moving truck loaded in the most efficient way possible.

Less Stress

While some may say hiring movers can be more stressful, for most, it reduces the stress of moving. If you leave the packing and moving process to the professionals, you won’t have to worry about heavy lifting. You don’t have to give a thought to packing everything to minimize damage, maneuvering and driving the moving truck, or unpacking at the end of your journey.


Most people need help to move, especially with heavy furniture or awkwardly shaped items. By hiring movers, you can leave the logistics to them. Doing so will allow you to focus on the important details of the journey. Hiring packers and movers can help you enjoy the process instead of stressing over all the steps it takes to move successfully. Plus, your friends and family won’t have to volunteer (or be volunteered) to help. And if you get insurance coverage, your items are covered if any damage occurs during packing or moving.
