Whether you realize it or not, you can DIY a full-service move with U-Haul and Moving Help®. The best part is you get to experience the flexibility and affordability of a DIY move but it will still feel like you hired a full-service company. 

U-Haul Truck Rentals and U-Box Storage Containers

Let’s say you want to rent a truck, but you need help loading or unloading it. You can hire Moving Help to do the loading and unloading just like for a full-service move. 

Let’s say you don’t want to drive a truck. Let’s say you want U-Haul to do the transportation part of your move. You can choose to rent a U-Box moving and storage container. You can have U-Haul drop off the U-Box storage containers at your home, and they’ll pick it up when you’re ready. 

Better yet, you can hire Moving Help to pick up your U-Box, drop it off at your home, and return it to the U-Haul location. Additionally, you can use Moving Help Service Providers to load or unload your U-Box for you. 

What About Packing?

Most customers like the option where full-service movers come to their home and do the packing for them. That’s one of the more valuable benefits to hiring a full-service mover. 

U-Haul also gives you that option. 

You can hire a Service Provider from the Moving Help Marketplace to do your packing. Whether you need help completing all your packing or just a little bit of packing left, Moving Help Service Providers have you covered. 

Let’s also say you just want extra hands for a couple of hours, you can hire Moving Help Service Providers to come help you pack for two or more hours. 

What About Cost and Security?

The best part about a DIY full-service move is you get to choose where you want to spend your money having someone help you or when you want to do it yourself. This will help you keep you in your budget. 

U-Box storage containers are great for security because you provide the lock for the U-Box storage container, and you keep the key. Therefore, only you have access to your U-Box storage container because you’re the only one with the key. U-Haul facilities also have state-of-the-art security systems. 

Have Your Own DIY Full-Service Move 

You can DIY a full-service move with U-Haul by using Moving Help. You get full control of when you want to DIY your move or when you want some help where it’s like you’re hiring a full-service moving company. The Moving Help Marketplace has plenty of Service Providers who offer many services to help make your next DIY move feel like a complete full-service move while sticking to your budget and needs.
