What if You Didn’t Need to Hire a Moving Company?

2015 June 01
Written by Go Mini’s

We all know the worst part of moving is having to trust the moving company with your precious things.

What if you could move without having to worry that the young new hires at the moving company are going to accidentally break your grandma’s priceless vintage lamp? Well, its possible only if you rent a portable storage container.

Start Packing Early

The earlier you start packing, the less you’ll have to worry about rushing to get everything together before the big day comes. The earlier you start putting the things you don’t use on a daily basis in a box, the more you’ll avoid stress as the day inches closer and closer.

And once your things are already packed up and ready to go, you don’t need to stress about them breaking on their way to your new home.

Take Time Off

This goes hand in hand with packing early. If you really want to avoid stressing yourself out over a big move – consider booking a couple extra days off work that you dedicate just to packing the small items that you know won’t be needed in the interim.

Ask Your Friends for Help

The easiest way to save money hiring a moving company, is to enlist the trusted help of your dearest friends. Unlike movers, they will feel obliged to help you without requiring payment (beyond pizza and beer) and they will be much more likely to take care when moving your valuables – because if they break your grandma’s priceless lamp, they’re going to feel mighty guilty every single time they see you.

Rent a Portable Storage Container

A portable storage unit will allow you to slowly and surely pack and store your valuables in your spare time, as you go.

Rather than taking a few days beforehand to rush and stress out about the entire thing – you can get your moving situation under control far in advance – and the best part is, rather than having your boxes filled up taking over your home while you’re still living there – you can get them out of your house and ready to go in the unit.

In the end, it is completely possible to manage your move without adding the expense of the moving company to your final bill. You just have to be ready to take advantage of any opportunity that arises, and make sure you manage your time in the most efficient way possible.
