Hiring Professionals or DIY: Which one is Better for a Move?

by - March 01, 2019

To know if you should hire professionals for your relocation or not, kindly give this blog a very good read”.

When it comes to relocating, many people think that they can do it by themselves. Their main aim is to save money! However, many regret this decision later. I mean there are many cases in which DIY makes sense such as a home improvement project, gardening, etc. But in this case, I don’t think it does! Trust me.


It is easy to assume that if you do it by yourself, all you need is some help from friends and family (most of who will not appear from the second day!) and time. Having said that, don’t you think the time is money and you have other things to look after? If no, then it is okay. Just keep scrolling down and read this blog.

So here are a few costs which you need to consider if you are doing it on your own:

* A lot of packing essentials such as packing paper, cartons, packing tape, etc.
* You also have to buy food and drinks for your friends who are there to help you.
* You have to rent a truck separately. You might also have to pay for the fuel of the truck separately.
* You might also have to hire help who will help you move the bed and sofa from the trucks to the rooms and vice-versa.

Apart from these costs, you might have to take leave from your office. Moreover, if any of your friends or kids hurt themselves during the whole fiasco, then the cost is upon you. Even you can hurt yourself while lifting furniture or your piano!

Another thing which many people do not consider is that if you are hiring Movers Chicago, then your valuable items can get coverage via insurance as well. However, if you are hiring a normal truck, they will not take any kind of responsibilities regarding the misplacement or damage of belongings.

In many cases (if you do proper research, check reviews and ratings, etc), hiring professionals can be a cheaper and better alternative for you. Once you hire them, you do not need to worry about anything else. From packing and loading the items into the truck to unloading and unpacking them – the experts would do it all. 

Wondering about the cost difference?

Well, with a Naperville moving company, it’s a onetime cost and thus you do not have to worry that much. But things are different if you are choosing to move it on your own. You might save a little money if you opt for the second method but trust me, it is not worth it. You have to literally arrange everything by yourself and might end up choosing a driver who has no idea of logistics. You have to beg your friends to help you as well!

If your friends damage your goods, you won't get any kind of refund! Instead, you have to bear the cost of their injuries.

On the other hand, experts would provide door-to-door services. The movers are trained and experienced. They will bring their own vehicle, packing materials, equipment, etc.

So I think by now you are convinced of hiring professional movers and packers rather than doing it on your own. Why take the risk of breaking your legs and going to the doctor and physiotherapist for months when you can simply hire movers?!

I hope that this blog was helpful for you all. If yes, then do not forget to share the link with your friends and family! And if you have any questions, please write to me.
