4 Ways to Transport Your Belongings When You Move

 There are many transporting options available to you when you move. If you’re moving across town, the options are different than if you’re moving across the country. Whatever your relocation plans are, you have multiple directions you can go when it comes to packing, loading, and moving.


The DIY Approach

The oldest (and often most dreaded) way to move is the Do-It-Yourself approach. Renting a U-Haul truck, buying boxes from the Home Depot, and loading up your truck yourself is by far the most common approach to relocation. While it comes with some back pain and a decent amount of chaos, it also often comes with a smaller price tag.

Moving Companies

Hiring a moving company can mean a lot of different things. Moving companies can do everything from transport boxes that have already been packed up to packing everything up and then loading it. A moving company takes care of all of the heavy lifting and also transports everything without any physical burden to you. The price is high for these services…but such convenience always costs money.

PODS & Other Storage Solutions

Portable On-Demand Storage gives you the chance to move all of your belongings out of your home for transport. They storage container can be dropped at your house and left there for any amount of time. You can load it up at your convenience and have it transported to your destination. This method is easier than the DIY approach and cheaper than hiring a moving company. But it’s still not cheap, so be sure to do your homework.

Drop Trailer from Brockman

A drop trailer from Brockman Trailers is much like the PODS description below: A trailer is dropped off at your location, left there until you’re done loading it up, and then transported to your next destination. If you’re not ready to move into your next home, it can also be stored at one of our secure storage lots. The main difference between a Brockman Trailer and a POD solution: PRICE. Our trailers are half the price of a POD solution, but with more flexibility and convenience.

When it’s time to pack and relocate, let Brockman Trailers help you make the right move. Our drop trailers offer the convenience and price you’er looking for with the features and protection that you need to make sure you’re belongings will make it safely to their next destination.
