Moving to a new home can be an exciting time, but the stress of doing it yourself can be overwhelming. Hiring a professional moving company can help make the process enjoyable and hassle-free. Taking a minute to evaluate your options early on can help save you from a lot of frustration down the line. Here’s 5 reasons a moving company might be the right choice for your next move.
1. It’s more affordable than you might think
First, tally up the cost of relocating everything you own. Then compare it to the cost of hiring professional movers. You might be surprised how affordable it can be to save yourself so much time and energy. There’s a lot of things that can go wrong with a self-planned move that can cost you more than you budgeted for. Underestimating the amount of packing materials, how many trips back and forth, or the rental period for a moving truck are just a few things that can cut deep into your moving budget. Don’t forget all the pizza!
2. Property and People are insured by a moving company
Your insurance may not cover damage to your possessions in transit to your new home when you move yourself. What’s worse is the potential for personal injuries to you or the people helping from pulling a muscle, to missing that first step. You should always be prepared with adequate muscle and the right tools when lifting and moving anything, especially heavy furniture or appliances. When you hire a moving company every mover and the items they handle are covered by insurance, and their goal is to protect everything they move. After all, their reputation is on the line!
3. The right materials and equipment
Air ride equipped trucks provide an added level of security to your items in transit. Professional moving companies can quickly asses the amount of materials needed, and always have the right equipment handy. You won’t have to worry about how to get your hands on a furniture dolly, moving blankets or other things you will only need once.
4. Time is money
A well-planned move can take weeks to orchestrate. There’s so many things to do before you can get settled into your new place. The most time-consuming part of your move will be planning how you will carefully pack, transport, and unpack hundreds of pounds of sentimental value. Professional movers can free up the days you would spend planning, packing, and loading allowing you to accomplish the other tasks related to your move, and all it takes is a phone call!
5. Comfort, convenience and complete satisfaction
Getting settled into a new place can be just as daunting as getting everything moved there. Having to hunt down the box with your toothbrush, or find the kids pajamas in a mountain of boxes is the last thing you want to deal with. The quicker you get the necessities unpacked and make it feel like home, the quicker you can begin to enjoy your new place. Experienced movers can make those problems vanish and get you settled in a fraction of the time.
