You’ve done it. You’ve found a new place and you’re ready to move in. You’re excited about a fresh start. All you need to do now is pack up all your stuff and shift it from the old house to the new. And there’s the rub.
Packing and moving can be extremely stressful. It involves heavy lifting, the delicate handling of fragile items, the possibility of misplacing treasured possessions, multiple trips by car, and frayed tempers.
Before you know it, you’re sitting on the floor of your living room, surrounded by boxes, covered in dust, with aching muscles and a crazed look in your eye.
And that’s when you know you should have called the movers.
Here are some ways they’ll make the moving experience a lot easier
1. A professional moving service cuts time and effort.
You don’t have to start packing up all your things weeks ahead of time. You don’t have to calculate how many car trips you’ll need to make. You don’t have to do a lot of things. The movers will do it for you.
2. Your belongings will be safer.
Transporting all your stuff from one place to another is risky. If you don’t pack it properly, you risk the chance of breaking or damaging precious items. Movers are professionally trained to pack and transport even the most fragile possessions safely.
3. You’ll avoid injuries.
Getting injured is the last thing you want, especially when you’re moving. It doesn’t need to be a serious injury either – even a strained shoulder muscle can throw everything into disarray. But if you hire movers, they’ll take care of all the lifting, the carrying and even the assembly of your furniture.
4. You don’t need to make multiple trips.
Renting a truck can cause a bunch of complications. It also costs you time and money. It’s hard to make a correct estimate of the number of trips you need to make. Objects can take up far more space than you realize. Professional movers won’t make that mistake. They’ll be able to plan, pack everything and take your stuff in one go, as quickly as possible.
5. Surprisingly, it saves you money.
One of the reasons people don’t call movers is they think it costs a lot of money. But doing it on your own could cost more. It’s easy to damage or break furniture. If you haven’t estimated the number of trips you need to make, the fuel charges will come as a nasty surprise as well. Most moving companies provide in-house estimates after a tour through your home. The sum quoted is the sum you pay. There will be no additional charges later on. Plus, moving companies don’t expect to be paid until the job is done – and done well.
