Anything can be done on our own but is it truly safe to do so? If we are out just to cut down on some costs, then we might just be incurring additional unnecessary costs at the end of the day if we are not doing it right. We have to practically have some knowledge in the field to at least be certain that we are handling things right. Should we feel that the whole process is even more troublesome than before, then we probably shouldn't be doing it in the first place. Spending more time isn't really worth it eventually as compared to spending more money if we are unsure of how to do things.
