Hardly anyone can say that they know a person who hasn’t had a stressful time while preparing a big move. There are so many reasons why this period of your life can be nerve-wracking and all about testing your limits. If you have a big household and a big family, a big move can quickly turn into a nightmare.
To be completely honest, there was the time when hiring a moving company was a privilege of the wealthy ones. There, undoubtedly, was a time when only rich people could afford to hire someone to carry or – imagine that – pack their belongings. Nowadays, it has become a serious business and extremely helpful, not to mention affordable. So, why should you hire professionals to help you relocate?
Because you’re probably not a college boy
Kids who are moving to a college dorm can get away with their father’s SUV and a few bags or suitcases. So, we can agree on that – if you are moving away from your parents to go to college, and more importantly, to a place where you already have all the necessary furniture (but, maybe, a lamp that you can bring), you don’t need a professional movers’ help. Everybody else usually does. It is virtually impossible to transport all the household with your own cars, or with the help of your neighbors. Well, maybe if you’re lucky that your neighbor has a huge truck.
Because pros know how to organize
If you are, let’s say, moving inside a tri-state area and you are moving the amount of stuff that can fit into a four-bedroom house and on top of that, you have three weeks to plan everything – you have a bit of a problem. A moving company staff can help you organize the entire moving process without any stress or worry. It does sound impossible, but we promise it’s not.
Because you need the manpower
Many people, especially men, think they are strong enough to lift the heavy load. You might think you can lift your wooden closet with a couple of friends until you experience terrible back pain and can’t get out of bed. Is this necessary? Moreover, if you have any fragile or antique furniture, it’s more likely you’re going to destroy it while trying to transport it yourself. Save yourself the trouble and call the people trained for the job. I know, it can be terrible for the ego, but try!
Because you will have insurance
If you hire certified moving company, you will get the insurance coverage. It means you will be insured from every damage or loss. How can you lose your own stuff, you might wonder? Well, let’s say you pack both trash and linen in the garbage bags, and because of the poor organization, one ends in the trash can, and it’s not the trash – and you find out too late. Yes, the author might know this from their own embarrassing experience, but the important thing is that you can avoid it.
Finally, when you think of all the cost of begging someone to help you and driving back and forth five times to transport your clothes and kitchen appliances – you can hire great, professional movers for that. Save yourself the stress, some people do this for a living, and they do it amazingly well!
