Choosing the right type of move

There are many different moving options.

There are many different moving options.

Moving can be an expensive process, but it doesn't have to be. By adequately researching and choosing the best the kind of move, consumers can save money and reduce relocation stress.

Hiring a full-service moving company is likely to be the most expensive option. Getting a number of different estimates is the best way to go. "A full-service mover should visit your home in person, not give a quote over the phone or online, and should provide a written estimate," the Chicago Tribune said.

Another option is someone renting their own moving truck, the Tribune said. There are a variety of different vehicle sizes available, and consumers generally pay by the hour and chip in for gas and other packing expenses.

Some people find a combination of the two the best fit. "With a hybrid move, a mover will drop off a large container at your home for you to pack," the newspaper said. "It will then load the container onto a truck, drive the belongings to your new location and drop off the container for you to unload."

The last option of using portable storage containers has been gaining popularity because of its convenience and low price.ADNFCR-3450-ID-19888394-ADNFCR
