Alternatives to Hiring a Full-Service Moving Company

by Glen and Lillian Ridgeway 05/12/2019

If you plan to engage the services of a commercial moving company, you should consider the cost implications. You will spend a substantial amount if you are embarking on a long distance move, but the good news is that there are less expensive alternatives. You might not need to hire a full-service company and just go with rental moving trucks and few people that will assist you with heavy lifting, loading, and offloading your household belongings. Here are some money-saving alternatives to getting a full service moving company:

HireAHelper.com

Are you planning to move to your new apartment and looking for a helper that will help with heavy lifting, loading, and offloading of your belongings? You will get all you need from HireAHelper. It is one of the most reliable online platforms where you can find and book the services of moving labor professionals. 

There are two categories of movers on HireAHelper, the labor-only moving companies that help in loading and offloading your belonging, or full-service moving companies. 

Moving Help 

The Moving Help is similar to HireAHelper in the sense that it gives the customer access to search online and find a local moving service in their locality. The services include loading offloading, cleaning, packing, unpacking, as well as driving assistance. The website gives an honest review of the moving helpers, and it ranks all the moving helper according to their company's star rating. This rating helps the customer to find out the most reliable labor service without stress. 

To find moving helpers on this website, supply the date of the move and the zip code or state/city of your new apartment or moving location.

Truck Rental Add-Ons

If you are going to engage the moving labor professional, you may need to rent a moving truck as well. You should note that the majority of rental truck companies provide loading and offloading services via their website. Do not hesitate to check individual rental truck services to know the labor option available. The ‘add-on' section of the rental truck website contains information about these services.

Enlisting Friends 

If you have a couple of trusted friends willing to help, getting them to help with the packing, unpacking, loading, and offloading will save you a substantial amount. This option may be the best especially if you have reliable friends that are on the ground to help you out.

Apart from being economical, a DIY move allows you to have full control over your movement. Once you decide not to go for a full service moving company, consider the alternatives above and go for any one option suits you.
