The Top 3 Benefits Of Hiring Professional Movers

by David Diaz

Renting a moving truck and handling your move on your own can be a very tempting option when planning your next move. After all, this is typically the cheapest option. However, cheaper does not necessarily mean better, especially when it comes to residential moves. If you are planning a move in the near future, you will want to seriously consider the use of professional moving services. You can learn more about three of the reasons why below.

#1: Professional Movers Offer Insurance Coverage

If you give into the temptation to handle your own move, you will be responsible for covering the cost of repairing or replacing any items that get damaged during your move. This includes damage to any of your personal belongings as well as damage to any of the moving equipment or your home. When hiring professional movers, the fee you pay for these professional services will include a set amount of insurance coverage that will protect you from any out-of-pocket expenses if anything is damaged. If an item does get damaged, having this insurance coverage available can easily help to offset the cost of hiring a moving company in the first place. 

#2: Professional Movers Can More Efficiently Pack Your Truck

Many DIY movers do not have the skills or experience necessary to pack their moving trucks in the most efficient way possible. This can lead to the need to make multiple trips. This will not only result in your move taking longer to complete, but it can also raise your overall cost when you take mileage fees and gas into consideration. With a professional moving company, you can be sure that your items will be packed into the truck in the most efficient manner possible. This can be especially beneficial for individuals who are moving more than just a few miles down the road. 

#3: Professional Movers Can Help With All Aspects Of Your Move

Many people mistakenly believe that professional movers are only available to help with the task of physically moving their items from one location to another. However, the fact is that many moving companies offer a full range of services that can help with all aspects of your move. This includes help packing your belongings and disassembling and reassembling large pieces of furniture. Choosing to take advantage of these types of services can really help to take the stress out of your moving experience and save you a lot of time in the process.

About Me

using a storage unit to organize a hoarded household

My mother turned into a bit of a hoarder when all of us kids moved out. It has been ten years since any of us lived with her and in that time, she managed to fill three bedrooms with all sorts of things that she really didn't need. All of that stuff was keeping her from being able to house my brothers when they came into town, so I offered to help her get organized. The first thing I did was found a storage unit nearby to rent. On this blog you will find tips for using a storage unit to organize a hoarded household.
