If you've ever moved before, then you know exactly what a pain it is. From the packing, to the loading, to the transporting, to the unpacking, it's one, endless string of things just waiting to go wrong. Which is why, if you're looking at another of these “adventures” in relocation, it's a good idea to leave it to a professional moving company.
Here are a few reasons why.
Reason #1: Saving Time
Moving is a full-time job, and if you're trying to get anything else done while you get ready to move it can be overwhelming. Which is why it's a good idea to get some help moving all your stuff. A professional moving company can load up an entire house in a fraction of the time it would take an average person to do the same, cutting the workload down to hours in some cases. If you add in the sheer number of hours you save from not having to do all the bending, lifting, carrying, and securing on your own, then you have given yourself entire days to handle all the other obligations that come with moving (making calls, switching utilities, changing addresses, etc.).
Reason #2: Safety and Security
If you don't move often, then chances are you aren't familiar with all the ways in which things can go disastrously wrong. How improperly packing a box can lead to everything in it getting crushed, or how putting the wrong box in the wrong location can create a domino effect of broken stuff in the back of your rented truck. A professional moving company can see the big picture, and they have the experience to slot all your stuff into its proper place to move it safely and securely. From tie-downs and pads, to proper distribution of weight, they've got you covered.
Reason #3: No Coordination Required
If you've ever tried to get friends and family to help you move, then you know how big of a hassle all that coordination can be. While you might have the necessary muscle to move your big stuff, and a friend of yours might offer their van or truck, it takes a lot of work to get that many people in one place, at one time. And then, once you have them there, you still need to try to direct their efforts. With professional movers they show up at a time that's convenient for you, and they get to work as a team. There's no need for you to stand nearby, managing their efforts, which frees you up to handle other tasks.
Reason #4: Insurance
There is nothing worse than trying to move something expensive, losing your grip for a moment, and listening to the sound of your TV shattering as it slams down into the tile floor. If you break something, or your friends break something when trying to help you, then there's nothing you can do about it. If the movers make a mistake and break something, then you'll be compensated by their insurance when it comes time to pick up the pieces.
Reason #5: It Can Save You Money, Overall
Hiring movers is typically thought of as one of the biggest ways to add money onto your moving expenses, but you need to look at the big picture. Would you need to buy boxes, and padding, for moving all your stuff? Will you need to rent a truck, and pay for gas to get you from where you are, to where you're going? How much time would you need to take off of work in order to make the move happen? What are the potential risks to your health if you injure yourself, or to your possessions if stuff breaks? All of those costs and risks are controlled when you turn the job over to the professionals.
