Moving to a new home can be incredibly hectic. If you are trying to find ways to make your move as stress-free as possible, you might consider trusting your move to professionals. A white-glove service will cover every part of your move from packing to unpacking. A pod service does not offer all of the services that white-glove movers will, but it does offer convenience. There are lots of options, but these two have advantages that are worth considering.
Full-service or white-glove movers get their name from the fact that they will box up, load, transport, unload, and then inspect your belongings. If anything is damaged during the move, they will insure and replace your belongings. Thus, there is little to worry about when you work with full-service movers. If you are unable to pack and unpack everything on your own, then you should consider working with full-service movers.
Keep in mind that when you schedule your move, you need to make sure that you are ready to leave your old house and move into your new one. If something comes up to prevent your move, you may have to pay a fee for canceling the moving service. Also, if you need to put your things in storage before moving into the new house, full-service movers will unload your belongings into a storage locker, but they will charge for unloading and reloading again to complete the move.
If you are able to do your own packing and loading, but you have too much stuff to fit in the back of a do-it-yourself moving truck, then you might consider working with pod movers. They will drop off a shipping container that you can load at your leisure. When you are ready to move, they will pick up the container and drop it off at the new house for you to unload at your convenience. If your new house is not ready to move into when you move out, then some pod movers will allow you to store the pod at a facility until you are ready to complete your move.
For the sake of convenience and adapting to the challenges that come up with a difficult move, hiring a pod service is the way to go. On the other hand, if you have all of the details of your move figured out, and you can't or don't want to move your belongings on your own, then a full-service moving service is the way to go.Share
