The average American is expected to relocate and move once every 5 years. Relocating is quite expensive. Not only do you need to pay hefty moving costs, but chances are you'll have to throw out a lot of appliances, tools and other types of stuff only to buy them again once you have settled in to your new home. With the average washing machine costing anywhere between $250 to $2,050, it might be wise to pack, load and bring your washing machine along for the ride.
When relocating heavy furniture and appliances to your self-storage unit, the strain of lifting the weight can result in muscular injuries. It's easy to overestimate your abilities. Using a moving dolly can help alleviate some of that weight and make the moving process a lot simpler and easier. A standard moving dolly can carry up to 500 lbs, and a furniture dolly can carry up to 1,000 lbs. When using a moving dolly, you still need to be cautious.
