DIY moving without a rental truck
While most people immediately think “truck rental” when they think of self-service moving, there are other options available. Small, local moves can be done with cargo trailers or multiple trips in a personal vehicle, but those options aren’t ideal for every situation. If you want to save money on a long-distance move, but would like to avoid long hours behind the wheel of an unfamiliar vehicle, a method that doesn’t involve driving may be best. Compare truck rental to a DIY moving service like U-Pack® to see how you can save.
