If you're moving across town, you and friends or family may be able to handle a local move more easily than you would if you were moving across the country; but even then, it depends on the size and complexity of the job.

Knowing which factors (time, money, and work) are most important to you will be your biggest aid in the decision making process when thinking about hiring a professional for moving services in Pensacola, Gulf Breeze...or anywhere in the country, for that matter.
Here are a few key things to consider when you're deciding whether or not you should hire a professional for your local or national residential move:
How Much Will You Be Moving?
The amount of work that you'll need to put into moving is very easy to underestimate. People often don't realize how much stuff they have in their homes until they start to pack.
You should take an inventory of exactly how much you have in your home that you'll need to move before you decide whether you can feasibly move it on your on. Check out rental truck companies to see what it would cost to use their equipment, and feel free to contact our Pensacola moving company for an estimate to compare that to.
How Far Are You Moving?
If you decide to rent a truck, you'll need to consider that long-distance moves will typically cost around 50% more, and after the cost of the rental itself, you'll want to include the cost of gas and mileage, then compare that to the amount you'd spend on a hiring a moving company. Not to mention the toll a long distance move can have on you, personally. In most cases, it's better to let a professional Gulf Breeze moving company take care of any long distance moving services you need, that way you can sit back, relax, and take comfort knowing all your stuff will be at your relocation site when you get there.
If you're moving locally, it's important to consider the amount of time that it will take to pack and unload, and the number of trips that you may need to take. While it may seem more feasible to take on local moves yourself, hiring Pensacola Moving and Storage for packing services alone can help save you a tremendous amount of stress. Our experts will make sure everything is packed up right, so all you have to do is relocate it to your new home.
