Making the decision to move is both an exciting and stressful time. The opportunity to relocate to a new home and create unique memories doesn’t overshadow the fact that work must be done to get from point A to point B. Some people opt for contracting full service movers in St. Louis, while others choose to go the DIY route and renting a moving truck. Here are the pros and cons of each:
Pros and Cons of Renting a Truck
The benefit to renting a truck or van for your move is that you have total control over the moving process, and are in possession of your valuables at all times. Rental trucks are also yours for the day or the duration of time that you choose to rent them for. If anything occurs to delay your move, there’s no need to rush as you have a larger window to transport your belongings.
Unfortunately, unless you contract All My Sons’ St. Louis packing service, you’ll be tasked with boxing your items, loading them onto the truck and transporting them to the new destination. Additionally, you’ll have to return the truck to the rental company or incur additional fees. Individuals who choose to rent a moving truck will also have to list any and everyone who will be driving the vehicle for insurance purposes. Anyone not listed will not be legally able to drive the truck and if anything were to happen where a second unlisted driver takes the wheel, they would be liable for any all damages that occur.
Pros and Cons of Using Full Service Movers in St. Louis
Full service movers in St. Louis relieve individuals of the burden that comes with physically packing and transporting their belongings. Moving is a burdensome experience that professionals are trained to perform more efficiently and effectively than DIY movers. With industry experts, there’s nothing for individuals to worry about except settling into their new home.
The main con with using St. Louis moving and packing professionals is that the price of services can be a bit high, depending on the weight of what’s being moved and how far it’s going. Fortunately, our moving team can discuss a plan that fits within your budget.
