Benefits of Hiring Professional Movers

July 07, 2019

Are you planning a move? If so, you’re probably trying to decide if you should hire professional movers or bribe your friends with pizza to load up a moving van on a Saturday afternoon.

Whether you are planning a short move or a major move, hiring professional movers is in your best interest. Here are some reasons why we think it’s your best option.

Consider Cost

According to Angie’s List, packing materials alone could end up costing you more than what you’d pay to have professional movers pack and schlep your items for you. So, take that into account when you’re looking at the numbers—it may end up being cheaper to hire movers.

Consider Insurance

If you use professional movers, your items will be insured if there is damage caused in-route; if your friend rents a van and something in the truck breaks, you’ll have no recourse to replace what was damaged.

Consider Safety

Professional movers are used to carrying large, heavy piece of furniture and boxes of books; chances are, if you do all the work yourself, you could end up getting seriously injured. Going with expert movers means that you won’t have to worry about getting hurt. Your movers will show up with all the necessary equipment for a safe and easy move.
