Firstly, ask yourself a few questions; do I have time to pack, load a van and drive the van to the new destination? Am I physically able to do all of these things? Will I need help from friends and family? What if something goes wrong on the day, do I have a back-up plan? When I finally get there, can I unload the van again? Do I rent a van or borrow one? Do I need extra insurance?
The whole process is very exhausting! As with many things, it is a good idea to consider professional help, which will probably come in the form of a team who can do the move much quicker than you can. You can still be packing while they are loading a vehicle fully equipped for the job.
