5 Reasons to Hire Professional Movers
Posted: Mar 23, 2017
If you’re thinking that you can move your stuff to a new home, don’t! It might sound a bit radical, but hiring professional movers proves to always be the best idea when it comes to both residential and business relocation.
It’s true that if you will be moving your belongings yourself, you will get to save some money, but you have to stop and wonder: is all that effort really worth it? Packing, disassembling, loading, finding the right mean of transportation and the friends to help you, driving, unloading, assembling, unpacking. Does it sound like a lot of work? That’s because it is and professional movers know how to do it right.
Here are the top five reasons you should hire professional movers:Professional movers know how to pack
Packing might seem like the easiest tasks of all when it comes to moving home or office, but once you actually get to do it, you realize packing is not that easy and, most of the times, is time-consuming. That’s why many people go for the combo movers and packers. Packing takes about 25% of the entire moving process and you will probably end up paying more if you decide to do this job yourself. Just think about it! You’ll probably spend an important amount of money on moving accessories, such as boxes, containers, moving blankets etc. and you might damage fragile items because you don’t have enough experience to pack them accordingly. Professional movers know how to pack everything fast and easy. You will save both time and money!Your belongings will be insured during the move
This a very important aspect of the moving process because, if you decide to do it yourself and somehow you break the precious vase from grandma, the cuckoo clock from grandpa, or more probably the precious TV, nobody will take responsibility for this except yourself.
If you decide to work with a professional moving company, they will provide insurance for your items and, in case anything happens to them, they will pay for the damages. Moreover, even if they refuse to pay, you still have access to their arbitration program that will settle your claim without having to go to court. That’s why is important to hire a professional and reliable moving company and make sure it has all the necessary licenses, insurance, and an arbitration program.Professional movers give accurate estimates
If you decide to hire movers, but not professionals that work in a moving company and are actually trained to do this job, you risk not only having your things deteriorated, lost or even stolen, but also paying more than if you were to hire a professional company. Why? Professional moving companies have no hidden costs that appear from nowhere when your things are already in the moving truck. They will send you a written estimate before hiring them, so you can decide ahead if you want to collaborate with them or not.The moving process will take less time
Like with all the other things that take a lot less if they are done by specialists, working with movers for moving your belongings will help you save a lot of time. They will do the packing and loading, transporting, unloading and unpacking. Can you imagine how much time will you save? They will also make sure to protect your floors, walls, doorways and stairways during the moving process because they have experience and are trained as…professional movers. And since time is money, saving time, it will also save you money by helping get back to work fast and find your pace again.Professional movers can help you with storage
There are situations when your things arrive at the destination earlier than you or earlier than planned. In this case, you need to find a storage facility to keep them. A removal company can offer storage facilities and help you with short-term, long-term or overnight storage. As expected, there will be additional charges for this service, but you will be able to relax knowing that your things are protected and safe.
