FAQ

Should I use a full-service company or do it myself?

Every move is different, so we recommend you compare your options before deciding whether to hire professional movers or do it yourself. Full-service companies are a great option if you’re moving internationally or if you want loading and unloading assistance. If you’re doing it yourself, keep in mind that in addition to loading and unloading your own truck, you will also have to drive to your destination. Portable storage containers are good middle ground for small to medium moves that don’t require additional services such as car transportation, professional packing, or help with loading and unloading. Portable storage also doubles as just regular storage if you need a few weeks or months before you move into your new place.

Do professional moves include packing?

Yes and no. The majority of professional movers will offer to pack your belongings if you wish. Foregoing this service will lower your quote but also add to your own tasks. Furniture disassembly and assembly is different from packing, so find out from your mover of choice if it’s included with your quote.

How much truck/container space do I need?

If you’re hiring a professional mover, then you won’t need to worry about space. Your belongings will be weighed and loaded into a freight truck. For a do-it-yourself move, on average you’ll need at least a 10-foot truck for a studio apartment, a 15–17-foot truck for a two-bedroom apartment, or a 20–26-foot truck for a home with 3 to 4 bedrooms. Sizes vary by truck companies.
