Reasons To Hire Professional Movers

May 16th, 2016

Every single part of moving can be dreadful. From wrapping and packing, to the heavy lifting and sorting; moving is by far one of the least favorite things to do on a weekend or a day off. Hopefully by this point you have decided to hire professional movers. But, if you are still on the fence over this decision, the following reasons should help make the choice much easier.

Profesional movers will have the right tools. There are few worse things that could happen on moving day than finding yourself without a particular tool to disassemble that giant bedroom set which you just carried down three flights of stairs.  The professionals will estimate the exactly how much you have for the move and will provide the appropriate sized truck for the job. This ensures you a hassle-free move rather than renting a truck yourself and running the risk of getting one that is too small.

It saves money in the long run. The main reason people will often avoid professional movers is the cost. While hiring movers is not the first thing on many of our “To Do” lists, it can potentially save you money to let professionals take care of the heavy lifting. People often tend to underestimate moving expenses. They also rush to get things done, which lead to items breaking, injuries or lost items. Among other things that get overlooked are the costs of refreshments and food for the friends and family helping. If your are renting a truck consider the costs of gas for the truck and if you will be making multiple trips.

You can use your time for other important issues. The number of things to do on your moving day can at times seem never-ending. By hiring movers you will be able to utilize that time for all other important things like getting the new location set up for the arrival of movers. Having this extra time reduces the stress and the load of the move significantly. When you decide to move yourself it will take much longer and you will be doing most of the heavy lifting and work. By having a professional company take care of your move, you will get the job done right and much quicker.

You will have happier friends and family. Everyone knows that friends and family are always around and willing to help. What you may not know is that no matter if they may offer their help multiple times, they really do not want to help. The reason why, is that moving is exhausting and stressful and people just rather not do it. If you want to make sure all your friends and family are happy with you, its best just to invite them for a housewarming party instead.

The chances of getting hurt are reduced. One of the bigger benefits of hiring movers is that you will be less likely to end up in the emergency room. By not having to do any heavy lifting or pushing you won’t run the risk of throwing your back out. You will also reduce the risk of hurting anyone around you with big heavy items that may fall if tied poorly or if they slip from your grip. The professionals know what they are doing and are better prepared for anything that may occur during the move. They have the experience and knowledge to do the job right and safely. When your are not well prepared and don’t know what you are doing it could result in an injury, or worse, to yourself or others.

That sums up the list of reasons to hire the professionals. Hope this list is enough to convince yourself that hiring movers is the way to go. If you have any other reasons why you think hiring professional movers is the wisest choice, share it with us on our Facebook and Twitter pages!
