If you are moving on a budget, hiring a van to do the moves yourself could be an option for you.
This is however not something we recommend. In terms of dollar spend, hiring a van is definitely the way to go. However, handling the move on your own can be costly in other ways.
Large furniture and specialty equipment such as pianos and gym racks can be very difficult to move. We strongly suggest you hire an expert to do it in case of injury.
You also need to be aware that if you hire a van to move your belongings, you might need a special license to drive it. Handling a van loaded with your heavy possessions is much tougher than you think. You might end up unwittingly damaging your belongings.
Although we seem biased, we believe that relocation should not be something that you’d want to save money on. This is because moving heavy objects around such as furniture can be dangerous and physically demanding. Also, driving a van is much harder than most people realize. It is best to hire our experts to help you out.
