Self moving is a relatively new and increasingly popular method of transporting yourself and your possessions from one home to another. By doing your own packing, you save a lot of money and get an excellent opportunity to keep tabs on your things during the move.
The two most popular methods of self-moving are to have a trailer (generally about 28-feet long) delivered to your home, which you then load up with the boxes you've packed. You only pay for the amount of space you've used. The movers then collect the trailer and transport it to your new location. Alternately, you can have a storage container delivered for self storage self storage. Best for small moves, the container is packed and collected by the movers. Both the trailers and the containers can be dropped off at your new home for unpacking or to a storage facility that you select ahead of time.
