Why Professional Movers Make Your Life Easier

If you are getting ready for a big move, chances are you have plenty on your plate. You need to do some or all of these tasks:
  • Buying or selling a home
  • Setting up and canceling utilities
  • Researching a new city
  • Looking for a new job
Even so, you may plan on packing up and moving on your own. You may have your phone out, ready to call up your friends. No doubt they’re just dying to spend a back-breaking weekend of lifting and schlepping all of your belongings from one home to another. Before you start all of that, though, consider some of the ways hiring a moving company can make your life much, much easier. Hiring a Mover Will Save You Tons of Time Packing all you have accumulated over the years could take you weeks or longer to do on your own. Many moving companies offer packing and unpacking services, which can be worth their weight in gold. Think about this. Packing could take you weeks or months, while a professional moving company can finish in a day or two. An added bonus--- you won’t have to spend several weeks with half of your stuff packed away, trying to remember where you put everything! Movers will come in and box up all of your stuff for you---dishes, pots and pans, framed artwork, books, clothes, etc. They’ll bring in all the packing materials---saving you another trip to the home improvement store. On the back end of the move, movers can help you unpack and put everything where you want it. You’ll feel settled and at home much faster. Also, if the movers pack your items, and something breaks in transit, the items will be covered by the moving company. Not so if you pack items yourself. Hiring a Mover Can Save You Money On the face of it, it may seem like moving on your own will save you a good chunk of change. Dig a little deeper, though, and you’ll see that hiring movers can save you money in more ways than one.
  • A moving company provides the truck and all the moving materials such as dollies, pads, shrink wrap and straps.
  • If you have your movers pack, they will provide boxes (the correct size), tape, and packing materials.
  • You won’t have to go out and buy duplicates of things you already have packed away.
  • You’ll have less damage to your home and belongings.
Most importantly, you’ll avoid injury if you leave the heavy lifting to someone else. An injury could leave you with costly medical bills and lost wages. You Can Avoid Injury Chances are very good that you’ll underestimate how physically daunting it is to move on your own. Moving heavy boxes and awkward furniture is inherently risky. You know to bend your knees when lifting something heavy, but after a few dozen boxes, you may forget to take that precaution. One wrong twist or turn, and you’re in trouble. Being hobbled in the middle of a move will cause real problems. Professional movers know how to lift properly and avoid injury. Their livelihood depends on being injury-free, so they are careful to use proper mechanics. Plus, they know the tools of the trade that make moving heavy objects easier. Once you see your movers strap up a giant entertainment center, you won’t have any doubt that leaving moving to the pros is the way to go. You’ll Experience Less Stress Many psychologists and doctors consider moving one of the more stressful life events you can experience. Moving disrupts your routine, creates disorder in your living environment, and leaves you with little time for rest or relaxation. It can also invoke a rollercoaster of emotions, whether your move is welcome or not. When you remove the giant task of packing and transporting all of your belongings from your list of moving tasks, you’ll:
  • Have more time to take care of other moving-related tasks
  • Have some time for that other thing called your life
  • Reduce your chance of injury
  • Avoid the hidden costs of moving on your own
  • Experience less stress
Considering all of the ways professional movers can make your life easier, why would you want to go it alone? You Won’t Have to Bug Your Friends Sure, you can call up friends to help you move, but most people view helping friends move the way they view getting a root canal. You know that’s true because you feel the same way when they ask for your help!  Hire a moving pro, and you can forget about bugging your friends---or needing to return the favor.
