Compare Your Moving Options

Moving Truck Rental vs. Door to Door

People think that renting a truck is the most affordable moving option available. There are indirect costs and stresses that make moving by truck pricier than anticipated, making this one of the most stressful moving options available. Besides all the additional costs, driving a big truck can be nerve racking. If you damage the truck, you’ll have to pay for the repairs or take a hit on your insurance.

Moving Truck Rental

  • Truck rental fee
  • Per mile fee + gas
  • Insurance
  • Stressful
  • Difficult to load
  • Difficult to gauge size

Door to Door

  • Low up-front pricing
  • No hidden fees
  • Moving experts to help you
  • Charged only for containers you use
  • Easy to load and placed close to your home

Full-Service Movers vs. Door to Door

Full-service movers can arguably be the most convenient moving option, as they load, drive and unload for you. But they also are the highest priced option and historically have the highest claims rates for damages. Since full-service movers charge by amount of space your possessions take up on a truck and the weight of your possessions, you typically don’t know what the final cost will be until your possessions are loaded on the truck. At that point, there really isn’t any turning back if the price goes over your budget.

Full-Service Movers

  • Highest price
  • Highest damage claims
  • Cost can skyrocket
  • Tied to their schedule
  • Tied to their availability

Door to Door

  • Low up-front pricing
  • No hidden fees
  • Moving on your time table with up to seven days to load, or loading services in select markets
  • Secure

Door to Door Moving Services

Using portable containers for your move offers the affordability of do-it-yourself moving (renting a truck) with the convenience of someone else driving the truck (full-service movers). It is the most secure way to move, as you lock your containers and no one has access to your belongings until you unlock them at your destination.
