U Load, They'll Drive

Want to move yourself -- but don't want to steer some Goliath truck down a narrow street?

Try self-service moving. Full-service moving companies take care of everything for you; a do-it-yourself move leaves you completely on your own. A self-service move strikes a middle way: you pack, load and unload the truck, but you leave the driving to someone else. You save on a full-service move – but save yourself the hassle of renting a truck, picking it up, driving it and returning it.

There are two basic types of self-service moves. The first involves the use of a commercial trailer, which moves you from your current residence to your new residence. The second type of self-service move involves the use of special containers that you pack your items into – the containers are then picked up and shipped to your new home.

If the company gives you an empty trailer for your items, you pay for the linear feet or cubic feet that you use. If you work with a special container for your items, the amount you pay depends on the number of containers you use and how far the containers will travel. These containers are a good option because you know only your stuff will be in the container; with other options, the trailer can be used by other people who are moving.
