So you have decided to start a new chapter in your life but aren’t sure if you want to move all your worldly possessions yourself or hire a professional mover in Calgary? We understand!
Video Transcription: [00:00:00] Hi there, Dean here from ASAP House Buyers. Are you thinking of moving? Have you called the mover yet in Calgary? Well, here’s a couple of things to consider before you do. So first of all, should you do it yourself or should you pay the fees to get a professional to do it? There’s a number of things that you should consider during this. [00:00:22] One of the things is how much are you moving? If there’s a lot of, cumbersome items and, expensive things, maybe a professional would, would be a good idea. If however, let’s say your furniture isn’t worth as much as it costs to, to ship it or, or to move it, then maybe you should just donate that. [00:00:51] But that leads me to my next thing. Something to consider is how far are you moving? If you’re just moving across town or to the next, you know, neighboring [00:01:00] community that I’m sure that you can, you know, call up some buddies, bribe them with with beer and pizza. And that’s probably a great option. Maybe you got a bunch of trucks that you can use rent a Uhaul. [00:01:13] Great. But something also to consider is how good a driver are you. These Uhauls are, are quite large. They don’t have great visibility and a insurance claim could certainly make that move a very expensive thing as opposed to just hiring movers. The other thing you have to think of is what is your time worth? [00:01:37] If you have to take a weekend off of work and you could have made that much money at work, as opposed to you breaking your back, moving your couches and everything else. Maybe you consider just doing what you’re good at going into work that weekend and paying a professional to do [00:02:00] it. [00:02:00] And then you’re helping another family in Calgary as well. Nonetheless, these are just some things to consider. If you’re planning to relocate from Calgary to another place or even within Calgary. Another thing to consider if you are moving, cross country or even a little bit further than across Calgary is keep items that you’re going to need right away in a suitcase. [00:02:29] This is just a little pro tip because. If you’re going on a long trip, you’re going to need toiletries clothes, items for work or school and other things close by. You don’t want to be rooting through boxes in the back of the Uhaul or even worse if it’s been packed away by a professional. [00:02:49]. So the other thing is if you’re moving further, maybe take the delicates and the fragile items in your personal vehicle and drive it yourself [00:03:00] over. There is a risk, obviously in any move, whether it’s doing it yourself or a professional of something getting broken. [00:03:08] So the things that you really care about that you want to make sure stay in pristine condition. It’s sometimes best to do that yourself.
