You want to move. You need to move. You have to move. Whatever the situation, moving is a reality that you’re tested to face. You’re able to move. You think you know how to pack a box and figure that loading a truck just takes a Sunday afternoon. The baby grand piano? No problem, you have some friends who played football in a group text. It’s all figured out… until, your back goes out, all your friends suddenly caught the “flu” and the Uhaul you rented might cost more than your home by the time you’re done making 75 trips back and forth or cross country. Often times, hiring a moving company is cheaper—substantially cheaper and best of all it doesn’t come with preconceived notions if you select the best company that supplies the best moving solutions for you. We have 7 Reasons Why Hiring a Moving Company Isn’t As Expensive.
Moving supplies can be purchased everywhere. Or, if you choose to use old banana boxes from Costa Rica, that’s up to you. But, keep in mind that you may be purchasing either too much of something, an inadequate amount, or an inadequate product. Purchasing too many supplies just adds to the often pricy bill of moving. Using scrap supplies can put your materials at risk: healing a broken vase because you didn’t pack it right is a real bother. We’ve seen it occur before. Save on experts who know how to pack using the right packing tape, boxes and protective materials.
Expert movers, professionals who focus daily, dedicating their time to this profession know a thing or two about moving efficiently. Did you photograph and properly bundle the cords to all your electronics? Did you properly tape bags of screws, tiny washers and ornamentally small and easily misplaced nuts together and safely attach them to the item they belong to? Or donate and dispose unwanted items for you without day-of-hassle? Take a deep breath. Then remember that saving yourself time, is as good as saving yourself money. Quality movers expedite the move and make the process efficient for you. And, they won’t lose anything if they’re good at what they do.
3. Your Effort
Moving takes a lot of effort. During these high-effort circumstances, injurious situations are more likely to occur. If injuries do occur mental and physical exhaustion or hospital bills may be on your horizon. Do it yourself movers might forget how to lift properly or entirely. Protect yourself positive energies and your items by hiring expert movers to do the heavy lifting for you. You will save on the back break.
4. Insurance Issues
If you own a business or have very valuable items, hiring a mover makes the most sense. That’s not even up for discussion. If your items are damaged — because you damaged them— say bye, bye to business and personal assets. If for some reason an expert mover damages your items you get cash and reimbursement. Insurance makes sense, so does hiring someone who is used to moving your possessions.
5. Big Delays
Your truck may be loaded and ready to go, but that unforeseeable snow storm just tossed a wrench under your wheel and you’ve not only totaled your vehicle but have lost a few family heirlooms in the wreck. Prevent the costs of pricey automotive accidents and delays. Instead focus on the things you can control, like choosing your travel day or how you travel. Expert movers see around delays and should have all your belongings arrive where they need to, on time. That way you don’t have to bother with staying in a hotel and delaying your move completion any longer than necessary.
Professional movers have phenomenal installation and deinstallation minds. When these individuals unpack you, you can have access to your belongings sooner rather than later. Instead of not being able to find your pots and pans (because you forgot to label a box) and eating out for the next three weeks because you’re busy adapting to your busy schedule, hired movers can literally transfer and set up your belongings in less than a day. Don’t call on Domino’s for weekly support. They’ll charge you for a product that’s just not that tasty. No matter what the proclamation. You’ll just get fatter and never make any progress. Don’t be a cheesy potato. Hire movers. They can prevent these types of day-after move expenses.
7. Children and Pets
We’ve known a few people in our time who can juggle almost anything. But, if you have three kids, two dogs, a gold fish, and a husband that practically wears a diaper, it might be best to hire a mover to take care of the heavy lifting. The emotional expense you have on moving yourself is far greater than when you hire a qualified and esteemed moving company. If you put more control between you, your kids, your pooch and the goldfish, you’re likely to save time and therefore money on your move. Keep those expenses down!
