Moving is one of those tasks that people often regret not leaving to the professionals. Unfortunately, by the time people realize how hard it is to move, they're knee deep in boxes and frustration. Professional moving companies have years of experience transporting goods from coast to coast, and they can do all of the heavy lifting while you relax. Below are some of the reason you should get a moving company to do the packing and moving for you:
One of the main reasons that people choose to handle their own moves with a truck and some friends is to save on costs. Unfortunately, many people don't realize that doing it alone can cost you more than hiring a professional. There is more to moving costs than the truck and some boxes. In order to pack your goods properly and prevent damage, you will need packing supplies like blankets, bubble wrap and speciality dish boxes. You will also need a way to carry your goods, so you may need to rent a dolly or hand truck. If you're transporting goods in your car as well as on the truck, you have to factor in the cost of gas for both your car and your rental truck. Truck rental companies often charge by the mile and these miles can add up quickly.
Depending on friends to help you move may seem like a good idea, but moving is a labor intensive job that few people are trained to complete properly. Friends may accidentally damage your goods, which can create an avalanche of problems. In addition, it can be hard to find friends who are available when you need to move. Moving your own belongings can be time consuming. You may have to take off days at work to complete your packing and spend an entire weekend on the task. If you hire a professional mover, they will come to your home, pack your belongings and load up the truck. In some cases, you can even arrange for them to pack up your home while you're at work.
