When the time comes to move to a new home, whether you are moving to a new city or a new state, hiring professional movers can make your relocation process much easier.
Many people believe that the cost of hiring professional movers is far more expensive than simply renting a moving van or truck and getting friends and family to help you. In reality, hiring professional movers makes your move safer and less expensive in many ways, not all of which are immediately apparent.
4 Ways Professional Movers Make Your Move Easier
To illustrate this point, here are 4 ways that hiring professional movers can make your relocation process easier.
1. Relieving You From the Physical Task of Moving
The people that professional moving services hire tend to be of the strong, well-built variety who are used to heavy manual labor. They are also well-trained in how to safely move heavy furniture, boxes, and appliances without risking injury to themselves or damaging your possessions or home. The smart play is to hire the pros to move everything for you and avoid trips to the emergency room, expensive home repair bills, and the expense of repairing or replacing items that are damaged during loading and unloading.
2. Professional Movers Have Superior Skills and Experience
The vast majority of professional moving companies have been in their line of work for many years. They have a lot of practice getting furniture and other large objects through narrow doorways, stairways, and hallways without damaging their cargo or the walls and door frames around them. Additionally, if you also engage movers to pack up your belongings for you, they have the practice and knowledge to get everything boxed and ready to ship in far less time than most homeowners.
Add to that their extensive experience with packing a truck so that everything fits safely and securely in one trip, and you can rest easy knowing your belongings will arrive in the condition they were packed. Lastly, the fact that movers drive moving trucks year round will let you experience a move that takes less time and causes no damage to your belongings. All you need to do is simply show up at your destination, tell the movers where you want your furniture, and unpack your belongings in their new rooms.
3. Professional Movers Save You Time and Money
If you decide to do your move alone, you need to plan several weeks ahead to get everything boxed up and ready to load onto a truck – that is if you have a completely clutter free, de-junked life with nothing in your home or garage that you want to get rid of before your moving day.
If you’re like most people, you’re going to need a few months to get rid of those items via Craigslist or Facebook before you’re ready to start packing. All of these pre-move activities obviously take up a significant amount of your time after work, and may even require you to take some time off in order to make your move happen.
When you add up all the hours you are going to spend packing and preparing, the days you need to load and unload the truck, as well as travel time and fuel, you may find that you are actually spending more money and expending more effort for a move than if you just hired professionals to move your belongings.
4. Professional Movers Take The Stress Out of Moving
Moving is an overwhelming experience. Packing and loading up everything you own, driving a truck for hours to a new city or state, then doing all of the work of unloading and making sure that nothing gets damaged is exhausting. Couples and families often find that they fight the most when preparing for a major relocation due to the strain it puts on everyone involved. Professional moving services are often well worth the expense for the singular purpose of reducing your stress level and irritability when making the transition to a new home.
