It’s finally time to pack up and move. When moving it is important to know that you have options whether going across town or across the country. Probably the biggest decision will be to move yourself or have a professional moving company do the honors. Likely the biggest factor in making that decision is the cost.
Hire a Professional Moving Company or Do It Yourself?
At first glance, you may think to yourself that you will come out far ahead to move on your own. But let’s consider the real costs before deciding. Besides the cost of the truck, there will be incidentals such as gas, insurance, lodging and food if cross-country, and packaging materials. There will also be tremendous stress and worry when large, fragile, or costly items are involved. In addition, no matter what shape you are in, moving household goods is hard on backs and muscles, especially if proper positioning and tools are not used.
Here’s a breakdown of several advantages when using professional movers:
- Professional movers take all those unforeseen costs and wrap them up in one fixed price for you. No surprises. You know exactly what it will cost to move from point A to point B.
- Reputable movers have insurance for their workers, and they are experienced at moving all types of valuables. Your back and muscles will thank you for completely being removed from the picture.
- Depending on your coverage, the movers can assume responsibility for damage or loss.
- The stress of making sure all of your possessions are packed properly and moved without damage is lifted from your shoulders.
- Saves time. Professionals are experienced packers and know how to pack your items, and how to pack the truck efficiently. Time is something those moving themselves often fail to take into account. Your time is valuable. Spend it doing something you like instead of packing and moving.
