Why you should hire professional movers
April 10, 2018
I love change. I love new things, I love new places, and I love new experiences. But I really hate moving. The entire process is just too much for me. It’s just a waste of time, effort and a lot of stress. Or at least it was. Now that I’ve discovered what a blessing hiring professional movers is, I don’t even think about the old moving process anymore.
Once, I believed that you only hire a moving company if you have no friend around to help you. But that’s wrong. There are numerous reasons to hire a moving company, and some of them can help you a lot.
Moving can be hazardous to your health
The first time I ever had to move, I tried to do it on my own. A friend helped me with his pickup truck so the only thing I had to do was to load my belongings onto the truck. I almost broke my neck when I tried to bring an armchair down the stairs. And it wasn’t even a heavy one. At that point I decided stay away from any bright ideas that involved lowering pianos down the side of the building.
Why hurt yourself when professional movers know exactly what they’re doing? Hire a moving company and I guarantee your back and joints will thank you. You’ll save a fortune in medical bills. And the movers will also do a lot better job then you’ll ever be able to do.
Your friends and family will love you more
Your friends and family may agree to help you out, but I guarantee they won’t like it. Nobody likes to spend their weekends hauling heavy stuff from point A to point B. At the end of the day, they’ll hate you. Even worse, they might expect you to help them out when they plan to move.
If you want to keep your friends and family happy and also avoid future headaches, just call a moving company. They will be really happy to help and they will definitely not resent you at the end of the day. They’ll probably like you even more.
You will save a huge amount of time
Nobody ever tells you how much time moving really takes. It’s not just the packing, loading, driving, unloading and unpacking. There’s also planning, disassembling, labeling, securing and a lot of other things. If you plan on doing it right, you’ll need to take a few days off from work. Maybe even a week.
But, again, you can avoid this just by hiring a moving company. The company’s representative will visit your home, plan the move, send the movers to grab your belongings and to move them to the new location, where they will also unpack and place your items in the designated rooms.
Movers know what they’re doing. They’re more efficient and they will move you a lot faster and a lot safer than you could ever do it.
Movers have the right equipment
You’ll never know how important it is to have the right equipment until you actually have to move. I mentioned earlier my piano idea. That’s one situation where having the right equipment can really come in handy.
And professional equipment doesn’t just mean cranes to help you lift the heavy stuff. Movers also have other, specialized tools, to take your furniture apart and afterwards put it back together. With a moving company, you’ll avoid injuries, you’ll avoid any damage to your property and you’ll also save a lot of time and money.
All honest moving companies provide their clients with moving insurance. This is awesome. Because, no matter how good a moving company is, the truth is accidents can happen to anyone, anywhere and anytime.
Losing something that was in your family for generations will upset you, but the blow won’t be as hard if you’re compensated. Just think about it. If you do the move yourself, you might damage your property. If you hire movers, they’ll get your belongings to your new place safely. And if they don’t, you’ll be paid for everything you lose. No matter how you look at it, hiring professional movers can save you money.
Hiring professional movers is a smart investment
So why are some people reluctant to hire professional movers? There’s just one thing. It’s the cost. There’s no doubt that, in this economy, you should save as much as you can and not throw your money away. But, as we’ve already established, you will definitely throw money away if you decide to do a move by yourself.
Let professionals take care of your belongings. They’ll move your property and they’ll do it safe and fast, so you won’t have to skip work or spend thousands of dollars on medical bills. And if some accident happens, there’s always moving insurance. That will cover you.
In the modern world, where people are always on the move, professional movers are worth their weight in gold.
