2. Selfmove is not cheaper. While relocating yourself there are many things that you need to take care of like rent a truck, getting insurance cover for your move and many more such things. Work outon each one of these costs and you will find out that if you hire a moving company for your move, it will be cheaper than self move.

Generally people miss some minute details to tell to the movers. For example, if your furniture does not fit in to the door and the moving company identifies these things on moving day, it will not only take longer time, but will also prove to be costly to you.

Each and every room from where the goods are to be taken for relocation. Especially the items that are fragile in nature must be shown to the representative of the moving company.

Ignoring all these pricey matters will prove costly to you. Arrangement of these details may help you in getting different prices from different companies.
