You’ve found your new home, and now that moving day is fast approaching, what are you doing? Are you spending major bucks to buy boxes and packing materials, or worse, bringing home every halfway decent box you can get your hands on from work, friends or dumpsters behind stores? Are you stressed out because you overloaded a box of books and it broke specatularly all over the floor? Upset because you didn’t wrap your grandma’s china properly, and it chipped? Frustrated because you haven’t had a moment to relax? Read on to discover how much easier your life could be if you hired professional movers to do the packing and moving for you.
- Safety first.
Even under the best of circumstances, moving puts a lot of stress on your body. From carrying heavy boxes and going up and down stairs to the constant bending and moving of heavy furniture like couches and dressers, it’s easy to pull a muscle or aggravate an existing injury. Oftentimes, inexperienced movers can even seriously injure themselves, so it’s best to leave the heavy lifting to the professionals.
- Your family and friends will thank you.
It’s pretty widely accepted that the two major favors people dread being asked for are a ride to the airport and for help moving. It always sounds like a fun time in theory—and it may very well start off with pizza and laughter—but by the fifth exhausting hour of wrapping your knick-knacks and carrying heavy furniture up or down stairs, your helpers will regret saying yes. It’s much more fun to let someone else do the tedious work, and instead, have your friends over for the first meal in your new home.
- One less thing to worry about.
Moving may take a lot of time and energy, but it’s only one thing on your to-do list when you’re getting settled somewhere new. Think of all of the things you could accomplish with the time you’d save if you hired professional movers, like disconnecting your utilities and setting up the utilities in your new home, cleaning, going to the DMV for a new license, doing your preliminary new home shopping and much more. You may have a limited time to accomplish everything, so don’t spend it moving boxes.
- Your stuff is secure and insured.
Unfortunately, there’s always the possibility that in the hustle of moving, something will break or be damaged. Not only is this more likely when professionals who know how to best pack and transport things aren’t involved, but if you (or a helper) are responsible, there’s really nothing to be done. On the other hand, your belongings are insured when you go through a professional moving company. Many companies even offer additional insurance for those big-ticket items, like TVs and expensive appliances.
- Emergency storage options.
Sometimes, circumstances change, and you aren’t able to move in to your new home immediately. Or, maybe you overestimated how much you could fit in your new pad. Whatever the reason, if you find yourself in need of some short-term storage and you moved yourself, you’ll need to find a storage facility as quickly as possible so you can return the moving truck or face hefty fees. When you hire professional movers, they can store your things with less hassle while you work out the logistics.
