Self-Moves or “do it yourself” moves are very popular for the budget conscious and willing and able. Our self-move companies provide a service where they drop off a container or trailer and then you are responsible for the loading and packing of the container. Once you have completed loading your trailer or container, you contact the company and they come and move your items to your new destination. You then have to unload and move all your items into your new home. Once this is complete, the self-move company removes their trailer or container.
There are a number of companies to choose from; but most don’t have locations in all cities across Canada. Some don’t move to your particular area and others aren’t available for long distance moves. Be mindful of how much time you need to pack and unpack your container. There can be some hefty “storage“ fees attached to your move if you need to keep the container longer than normal.
Most of these “Do it yourself” moves have very different programs and availability. By using Moveit you can quickly find and compare the right company for your needs. They may or may not be the least expensive option especially if you are moving long distance to a remote area or need to a lot’s of time to move your own stuff. Another thing to bare in mind is that there is no insurance on your items while they are being moved. Sometimes it’s good to compare prices on both a full service moving company and a self-move company to see if you are really getting the best bang for your buck.

Thank you for providing this service for Canadians… I’ll be sure to recommend you to all my senior friends, we are all forced to abandon our homes and move in apartments… just a fact of life, not a sad story.
Looking forward to my move, thanks to you.~ Annette Harris
