If you are moving across the street in South Windsor, CT, or to a new neighborhood across town, you are going to face many of the same issues you would if moving long distance out of Connecticut. You still have to plan, pack, load a truck, transport, and unload in your new South Windsor home. However, a local move makes it more tempting to attempt to save money and do it yourself, which could wind up costing you more in money and grief.
The Hidden Costs of DIY Moves
- Poor planning is a huge headache in moves. Often the little details become the biggest hurdles. A professional, having done this many times, knows the steps to take to make sure the move is safe, efficient, and quick.
- Not knowing the proper size of truck to get can result in needing a second truck, requiring more trips, or if the truck is larger than needed, paying too much for the rental.
- Packing boxes poorly and loading the truck incorrectly can result in wasted space or damaged goods. A professional moving company has the proper packing materials, packs boxes so they won’t collapse, and knows how to get the most efficient use of truck storage space.
- Getting friends to help sounds like a good idea, but consider that they don’t move for a living so they may not take proper care in moving furniture and boxes. Not knowing how to pack, the move may take much longer than is necessary. Also not knowing the proper techniques, your friends may injure themselves, and you may be responsible for the bill. Professional movers are insured and have had extensive training in proper techniques and the use of proper equipment.
- Being stress and worry free – priceless. Hiring a professional means no sweating over how to move those large furniture pieces, mirrors, or electronics. No wondering if loads will shift in the truck during the move damaging goods. You’ll have no worries about driving a large truck in traffic, or though the neighborhood streets of South Windsor.
Save yourself all these headaches and don’t try to do your local move by yourself – hire a trained, experienced, professional to do the heavy lifting while you take care of other things.
