You are only able to manage partial packing
In many cases, moving is a multi-man job. At first, you may believe that you are able to handle moving and storage all on your own, but eventually you may realize that you are only able to complete partial packing. Some items are too large to handle on your own. Maybe you have more stuff than you think.
From start to finish, your solo Boston area move takes too long
Moving is a time intensive activity. If you have strict deadlines on when you need to leave your old place and when you are able to move into your new place, time is of the essence. In this case, it may be better to hire a moving company or at least utilize your friends, to help you with your move. Solo isn’t always the best answer.
Moving day becomes too frustrating to manage
Moving day is a stressful day, especially if you are handling the entire move on your own. You need to organize everything correctly so that it fits into your vehicle or trailer. You need to drive. If you are doing an interstate move or cross country move, the day will be even longer. Maybe you even have some last minute packing to do. The last thing that you want to do is make it to moving day and realize that it is too much for you to handle on your own.
Frustration turns to a lack of great care
You should prioritize taking great care of your possessions. Yet, when handling the entire operation on your own, it is easy to for your frustrated and exhausted state to cause issues. Maybe you unintentionally, or intentionally, break some of your items. We do not want that!
