Moving, whether it is long distance or even just next door, is always coupled with the hassle and trauma of figuring out who will pack what where and how. Depending on someone else to pack your things comes with its unique dose of anxiety. But, there is another option and that is Self Packing.
Self Pack boils down to ABC common sense. You know how you want your stuff packed. The concept of self packing is very simple. Once you have made arrangements with the movers, they will drop off the number of crates that you require. These crates are weather resistant so be assured that your belongings will be safe and snug. All you have to do is pack your things and lock the crates and the movers will come and do the rest. But, before you embark on your task of self packing, make sure that you have all the packing materials you need. Once the crates are delivered to you, you can unpack at your leisure. Now how easy is that!
Self packing saves you a huge wad of cash because you don’t need to pay for the packers and the “un” packers. You also save time because you don’t need to instruct someone else to pack for you and then double check if those instructions were followed. Let’s face it, saving time and retaining your peace of mind are two trumps you really can’t pass up on.
If you are not a complete hands-on type of person then Self Packing can seem somewhat tedious. Also, if you feel you do not have good planning skills then it's safe to say that self pack is definitely not for you.
