Moving is a big deal, and there’s no lying about it. But, does this mean that a small move is a small deal? Not really, because, even a small move can get complicated. But here are a couple of ways to handle a small move that can help you throughout this process.
It’s hard to say what a small move is, so let’s first say what it’s not. If you’re moving your home with several rooms to a place that is not nearby, you’re definitely dealing with a regular or a big move. But, here’s are a couple of examples of a small move:
- moving a one-room apartment
- moving only a room, for example, relocating your home gym only
- if you’re moving just down the street
- moving only specialty items, like piano, or a pool table
- moving for college
- other similar kinds of a small move
Ways to handle a small move
There are several ways to handle a small move. You can either do it by yourself or hire movers to do it for you. And both of these have several options.
Hiring a moving company specialized in small moves
A DIY move might be harder than you think, especially if you expect your small move to be super easy. So, if you hire a company that specializes in small moves, you will have someone to share your burden with.
If all the items that you need to move can fit in one carload or two then this is the best option for you. First of all, it’s not expensive. Also, you will have full control over this whole process, as you won’t have to get other companies and vehicles involved. So, if something happens that changes your moving schedule, this way, it won’t be a problem.
DIY move with a rental vehicle
Instead of using your own vehicle, you can rent a truck or a trailer. This is the way to handle your move if you have any larger items or you need to move multiple rooms all at once. It’s less flexible then if you’re using only your own vehicle and there are expenses involved. But, on the plus side, this way might is more convenient in some circumstances.
Shipping larger items separately
There’s always an option to ship your items separately. Maybe it’s a piano, a car, a large piece of furniture… You can find a good company to help you ship your item to the desired location.
You might choose one of these ways, or combine these ways to handle a small move. Either way, you need to stay focused throughout the process. A small move is not that hard, but it’s not too easy, as well. So, be careful in order to avoid some of the typical moving mistakes. So, keep in mind that focus and attention during this process will prevent potential negative consequences.
