Anytime you do something yourself, you can usually count on saving money. For instance, when we moved into our new home, we did all the painting ourselves, and you guessed it, we saved tons by not hiring a professional painter. Instead of hiring a landscaper, my husband mows our lawn and weeds the flowerbeds – another big money saver. Moving is no different. If you can do at least some of the work yourself, you’ll definitely save money – sometimes a significant amount. Let’s take a look at exactly how much you can save by doing a self-move and taking on some of the work yourself.

How you save with a DIY move
I may be telling you something you already know, but hired labor is rarely cheap. If you have friends and family willing to do the work for pay in pizza and cold drinks, why not?! Just make sure everyone is up-to-speed on proper packing and loading techniques, and put them to work.
And remember, with U-Pack there are no hidden fees – another way you save. Just pay based on the linear footage your shipment occupies in the moving truck, or the number of ReloCubes you use. There are no extra fees for fuel, highway tolls, or taxes. That’s the way moving should be. Low cost and easy.Get a free instant moving quote today and see how a U-Pack do-it-yourself move can save you money!
