There are many things to take care of but you also have to think of the what-if situations. For instance, you cannot just concentrate on saving money now but also on the damages that could happen on your things.

The Advantage and the Disadvantage of Self- Packing

Self-packing is quite ideal especially when you only have a few things to bring. Even when you have quite a lot of things you can always pack them yourself as long as you have enough time just to save a lot of money.

However, along with that savings is also the risk of having difficulty in making insurance claims. For one, if you pack your own things and something happens to them while in transit the movers could claim that the damage was due to the use of inappropriate packing materials or due to poor packing practices.

Independent Insurance Important

Aside from the insurance provided by removals companies it is important that you get an independent insurance especially if you have very valuable items. At least, you are sure that you will be protected from total losses should something happen to your things.

On the other hand, the decision is still yours whether to actually get extra insurance and whether to pack your own things. In the end, you would have to consider and weigh the savings you are going to get against the value of your things.
