Deciding between hiring a mover or doing it yourself is a difficult decision. Moving saves money, but it takes a lot of time, planning and muscle. A professional moving company has the equipment and expertise to relocate your household quickly and efficiently. The decision on how to move is easier with an understanding of the pros and cons of each option.
Handling the entire moving process on your own gives you flexibility. You set the schedule and pace, pick up the truck and moving supplies. And decide how to pack. If you have friends that can help and access to a truck or trailer, expenses are gas for the move and maybe dinner and drinks for your friends. A do-it-yourself move is ideal if you are on a budget.
Moving a household is physically demanding. Appliances dressers and couches are challenging to manage for even the most physically fit. It takes strength and skill to ensure that walls, fixtures, and furniture are not damaged. Even with plenty of help, moving furniture, fragile items and countless boxes can be challenging.
Using your truck or trailer may be cost-effective, but it means multiple trips and extra fuel. It is generally easier to rent a vehicle capable of moving everything at once. Driving a vehicle, fully loaded with all your possessions is a big responsibility, so make sure you have adequate insurance coverage.
You are solely responsible for the planning. That means securing the necessary packing supplies, picking up and returning the vehicle, and coordinating the schedules of several people to ensure you have the required help.
Hiring a Mover
Hiring a professional mover eliminates the heavy lifting. They know how to get a refrigerator up a flight of stairs or a bulky couch through a tight doorway. You won’t have to be concerned with having sore muscles, scratched floors or damaged walls and furniture.
Professional movers are reliable and efficient. They show up on time, with the right equipment, ready to work. Hiring a mover eliminates the worry of not enough help and figuring out where to start. You may move only a few times in your lifetime, but professional movers are experts who do this every day.
Hiring professional movers mean giving up control. A full-service mover handles every detail from packing to transportation. Since manpower and equipment and limited even scheduling may be affected. You may have to be flexible with the moving date, especially on short notice.
The cost of hiring movers is another consideration. When you hire a mover, you are paying for the labor, vehicle, and equipment, as well as the skilled expertise of the company. There is a cost associated with the peace of mind that a professional moving company provides.
