What are the different types of moving services and companies available?

When planning a move, you have three basic choices: full service, self service, and do-it-yourself

  • Full Service: A full service moving company cares for every aspect of your move, from packing to delivery to unpacking again. Full service movers are the most expensive option, but also provide insurance against damage to your belongings.
  • Self Service: A self service moving company takes care of loading your packaged belongings onto a truck, delivering, and unloading. You care for everything else, from initial boxing to unpacking and placement of furniture.
  • Do-It-Yourself: Typically only suggested if you’re moving a short distance, the do-it-yourself method involves renting a moving truck and taking care of every aspect of the move yourself.
