When I moved out of Montreal (Quebec) back to Ontario, I
decided that I was going to "save" a few thousand dollars and
accomplish it all by myself. I made about 6 round-trips
between Ontario/Montreal (about 420km one-way), packing my shit
all by myself into a Ford Bronco, from a 7th floor apartment to
my truck in the underground parking and crossing 4 different
doors along the way.

Most of the larger furniture could be dismantled (IKEA), but I
had all the time I wanted since I was on a month-to-month lease
in Montreal. The project was complete after 4 months.

I only needed an extra pair of hands with the mattresses and my
couch - and a larger vehicle (a van) that was graciously loaned
to me.

The whole process was somewhat cathartic. But I am not sure I
would want to engage in a 6 round-trip moving journey ever
