DIY vs. Full-Service International Moving: Which Is Best For Your Move Abroad?

Full Service International Shippers

Are you thinking of moving abroad in the coming year? Perhaps you’re going to study in another country, moving to live closer to family, or relocating as part of your job. Whatever the reason, you’re likely to be taking a large number of possessions to your new home.



However, if you’re moving abroad should you consider a DIY moving experience, or would it be better to hire a full-service moving company?



Read on to learn more about DIY moving vs. full-service moving. 



DIY Packaging vs. Full-Service Packaging



Packaging your goods in the right way is essential to avoid any unnecessary damage during transportation for either DIY or full-service shipping services.



With full-service movers, they will include this service as part of the moving process. You can expect to receive a detailed inventory of each item in every box, and your possessions will be packed safely and securely. This can ensure your goods make it to your new home in the same condition as they leave the departure point.



DIY Transportation vs. Full-Service Transportation



A full-service moving company will have its own fleet of vehicles ready for use at times that suit your needs. These vans will be in superb condition and be loaded with the equipment required to transport your goods safely.



Should there be any issue with a vehicle, the business will immediately substitute it for another. This allows your belongings to continue their journey without delay. 



DIY Logistics vs. Full-Service Logistics



EuroUSA has operations in both the US and Europe, so you only need to communicate with a single company for both DIY and full-service. You can then streamline your move and eliminate the need to coordinate with many different businesses. 



This can be invaluable, as you can arrange for your goods to be packaged and collected from your current location, and then relax, safe in the knowledge they will arrive at your destination with the same moving company. 



DIY Moving Time vs. Full-Service Moving Time



With full service or DIY you can arrange your moving plans with a single professional, who then works with their team to get your belongings to the destination on time. This can save you hours of hassle, allowing you to get on with other important tasks.



DIY Problem Solving vs. Full-Service Problem Solving 



The best moving company will have seen just about every goods transportation issue, and know how to solve the problems. They can use their expertise to identify any potential glitches at an early stage, and put contingency plans in place.



While you travel to your home, these employees will work tirelessly on your behalf. This ensures you don’t have to worry about your goods arriving on time. 



This specialized knowledge can be a critical factor in making your international move as smooth as possible.
