Of course they will!

There are many customers that will opt to pack their own belongings rather than pay extra for packing services. While having your belongings professionally packed for your move can certainly save time as well as decrease the risk of damage sustained during transit, taking care of the task yourself can eliminate several hundred to several thousand dollars from the cost of your move, depending on the amount and weight of your goods.

However, if your belongings were self-packed, your movers' liability is greatly limited should anything unfortunate happen to your items while they are on the trailer. With the exception of provable negligence on the company's part, they will not be responsible for broken items that you have packed yourself.

If you would like to hire a moving company to load and transport your packed goods to your new home, you can start now by filling out our fast and easy form to receive free quotes from various movers!

However, if you are looking to save even more money, you could also employ a "You Load, We Drive" service. These companies will deliver a portable storage trailer directly to your front door. You will then proceed to load all of your packed belongings onto the trailer at your own pace. Once you are ready, the company will pick up the trailer and drive it directly to the door of your new home.

POD, PACKRAT, WeHaul and ABF UPack are several notable companies you can enlist for this cost-effective service. Start comparing free quotes from these companies and others right now at Movers.com, and do not forget to stop back and let us know about your experience by writing a moving review!
