Our Moving Service Process

1-800-PACK-RAT is dedicated to making your move as stress-free as possible. We allow you to pack your self-service moving container at your own pace so that you can stick to your schedule. Here’s how our moving process works:

  1. Deliver: Choose the size and number of self-pack moving containers you need, and we’ll deliver them straight to your home.
  2. Pack: No need to rush through the packing process—you can take your time and pack at your pace, or visit our Professional Labor page if you need a helping hand.
  3. Pick up: Once your self-pack moving container is filled and ready to go, our drivers will come and pick it up for you, then take it straight to its final destination.
  4. Store: If you need time in between moves, you can store your container at one of our country-wide facilities, which are equipped with 24/7 surveillance, automated sprinklers, and no shared hallways. Once you’re ready, we’ll deliver it to your location.

There’s a reason we’re regarded as one of the top moving companies in the nation—our moving process keeps your schedule in mind so you can stick to your own timeline, giving you peace of mind to pack at your pace and have your belongings delivered when you need them.

Is It Better to Hire a Moving Company or Move Yourself?

Moving is a challenge, but when you hire the right moving company to get you to your new home, you can focus on the other important factors that go into a move. With 1-800-PACK-RAT, you can move yourself with little hassle, take as much time as you need, and even hire professional movers to help make the move even easier. If you choose the self-moving route, you’ll typically save more money because you won’t have to hire professional movers, and you’ll be able to pack and organize how you’d like to. However, this option can be less convenient, as you’ll be responsible for the bulk of the labor and moving.

On the other hand, hiring professional labor assistance can save you time as they’re more efficient and can reduce some move-out day stress. While this can be more costly, the benefits of being able to coordinate your move while movers handle the loading/unloading can be worth it. 1-800-PACK-RAT is the perfect solution to bring both options to the table. You can utilize our portable storage containers to take as long as you need to pack while also hiring trusted, third-party professional labor companies to assist with loading and unloading your container.

1-800-PACK-RAT costs are also market competitive, so you can move within your budget. You can get a free quote online or give us a call at 1.800.722.5728. Once you’re ready, we’ll take your moving container to your new home for you.

What Is a Self-Pack Moving Company?

A self-pack moving company provides limited moving services, giving more autonomy to their customers so they can pack and move on their own terms. 1-800-PACK-RAT is a premier self-moving company offering portable storage units that can be delivered straight to your home. When compared to moving trucks, you don’t have to worry about driving down unfamiliar roads in a large vehicle or loading and unloading heavy items off the back of a truck or unsteady ramp. We don’t want your moving experience to be a hassle, which is why we make the process as smooth as possible so that you can focus on more important matters. From ordering your container(s) to pickup and delivery to your new home, each step of the process is done with your convenience in mind.
