The thought of moving gives some people panic attacks. You have to spend weeks packing, then move everything and then you have to unpack. Add in unhappy kids, stressed out pets, and trying to keep things together. You can see why moving will never make any popularity list. Hiring a moving company can help make your move a lot less stressful. Here are seven undeniable reasons why you need professional movers to help:
1. Saves Time
How long would it take you to load a moving truck, get it across town, and unload it? Will one load do the job? For many, moving an entire house or an apartment can take all day, even with friends and family helping.
Movers know how to get the job done quickly and efficiently. That is what they do every day. What might take you an entire day will likely take them a few hours.
Your friends have lives to live. You ask for their help, and they are willing to do it. But it may be only for a few hours if they have time that day. You may find yourself with a truck that’s half loaded (or unloaded) with no one around to help.
When you hire professional movers, that’s not an issue. The movers will be at your house when scheduled. They will also be there to unload.
Moving is strenuous work. People get hurt all the time during moves. Strained backs, pulled muscles, and even occasional broken bones are not uncommon. Don’t get hurt moving, and don’t ask your friends to get hurt either.
Moving professionals know how to do the work safely, using the right equipment. That will save you a lot of pain.
4. Tools of the Trade
You don’t have to rent or buy moving equipment. Movers have all the equipment necessary to make your move efficient. From hand trucks to furniture blankets to furniture dollies, they bring everything they need with them.
Having the right tools allows the movers to get the job done quickly and efficiently. It also keeps your possessions in good condition.
5. One Less Thing to Worry About
Moving involves a lot of details. Even if you’re only moving across town, you need to set aside time for the move, do the packing, get address changes done, move the utilities, and keep the kids and pets from stressing out.
Letting the professionals do the actual move is one less thing you need to worry about.
7. You Can Ensure the Move
You have the option of insuring your possessions when you make a professional move. That means if the movers drop the TV, insurance will pay to fix or replace it.
If you were to drop your TV moving it yourself, you would need to pay out-of-pocket for repairs or replacement.
7. Keep Friends Friendly
Be honest. If a friend asked you to help him move, you wouldn’t be happy. You hate the very act of moving. Now, what do you think your friends’ reactions will be when you ask them?
Hiring professionals handle the move is the best thing you can do to preserve your friendships. All you need to do is remember to invite your friends to a housewarming party.
