I have done both DIY as well as moving, storage and packaging by professional movers before both for office and home. Due to the nature of my father’s job we moved around a lot when I was younger and this continued for years later when I was an adult. Sometimes it included déménagement longue distance which means long distance moving in French.
When I was working with a conference organizing company at one time, we moved office 4 times! I didn’t stay around for the 4th move. Again, sometimes we DIY. However, once we used a professional mover. I was really impressed by how quickly they got everything done including removing all the computers and wiring, the packing and unpacking. Everything happened at lighting speed and we were back in business the very next day after the move in our new premise which is very important for a business.
For homes, it is okay to DIY your packaging, storage and moving if the move is very near and you have lots of helpers. Otherwise a professional mover may turn out to be more economical if the move is a distance away and involves things that require extra care like musical instruments for example.
Whatever it is, moving is both exciting and stressful at the same time. So, try not to stress too much about it and enjoy the move if you can. Although things can be unsettling for a while, moving can be fun too.
