10 Reasons to Consider Hiring Movers For Your Long Distance Move

Whether you’re strong or weak, young or old, hiring professional movers to help with your long distance move may be one of the best decisions you ever make. All you have to do is make a few phone calls, decide on the right company, and wait for moving day. Your movers will take care of the rest.

If you’re not sure what good reasons there are for hiring movers, then you’ve come to the right place. Here are ten reasons why you should.

1. Time Efficiency

Moving takes a lot of time. First, you have to pack everything and organize it to fit in the moving truck. Then, on moving day, there’s a lot of walking back and forth from the house or apartment to the moving truck.

You’ll need someone to stand guard both at the door of your home and at the moving truck so that nothing gets stolen and this can last for hours or even a couple of days.

Save some time with movers that will work effectively and efficiently in a timely manner. In most cases, your belongings can be loaded up and on the road in just a few hours.

2. No Heavy Lifting

There are lots of heavy items in your house including your couch, bed, dressers, and any other large furniture. Not to mention that you probably have several heavy boxes. These items can be awkward and difficult to carry, especially around corners, up and down stairs, and even up the ramp onto the moving truck.

With professional movers, you won’t have to lift a finger. The movers will simply show up at your door and you can sit back and take care of other important items on your moving checklist.

3. Save Your Vehicles

If you’d prefer to avoid extra wear and tear on your vehicle, or your friends’ vehicles for that matter, calling in the professionals will help. You won’t have to worry about knicks and scratches on paint jobs or dents and other damages that could occur.

The interior of your vehicles will benefit, too. There’s always something that ends up not fitting in the moving truck and therefore gets crammed into the backseat of cars or hatchbacks causing problems with visibility while driving. You can avoid this hassle with movers.

4. No Bothering Friends

Of course, even without professional movers, you can’t move by yourself. You’ll need to enlist the help of friends and/or family to help you load and unload things and this can take a toll on relationships.

Stress is almost inevitable with a move and you don’t want to worry about saying something to a friend that you may regret later.

5. Organization

Professional movers will mark all over your belongings with inventory tags so that everything is organized and easily located. They’ll also keep most like items with other like items like furniture with furniture and keep kitchen boxes in one spot. This will make easier for the movers to keep inventory but also give you a running tab of where your things are at all times.

6. Care for Special Items

Especially if you have special items like a piano or antique furniture, movers are trained to take extra care while moving and transporting such items. You won’t have to worry about dropping or scratching or otherwise damaging your special items. Not to mention that your belongings are insured when you hire professional movers.

7. Packing

Many moving companies offer packing services as well. This ensures that your belongings are packed safely and securely with packing materials such as bubble wrap, paper, and even spacers for glassware and dishes.

Make sure to ask about packing services as part of your initial quote to be sure the company offers these services. Oftentimes, this is an additional charge.

8. Reliability

Remember those friends and family that you were thinking about having to rely on for your move? It can be difficult to arrange your moving day into a date and time that works for the people you need to help. But, with movers, you can rest assured that they’ll show up right on time and stay until the job is done.

9. No Equipment Rentals

You won’t have to rent dollies and other moving supplies because the movers will be equipped with everything they need to safely move your boxes and furniture so you don’t have to hassle with it. Besides that, some moving equipment can be bulky and difficult to manage.

10. Less Stress

Overall, hiring movers is far less stressful than trying to handle things all on your own. Taking into consideration all of the above, you’ll have less to deal with before, during, and after your move.

Final Thoughts

Hiring movers for a long distance move can make things easier on you and your family. Especially if you have pets, it’s nice to allow the moving company to take care of your belongings so that you can focus on getting your pets moved without added stress. Or, if you have children, you won’t have to worry about keeping your eye on them while you’re trying to move things and stay organized.

It’s a good idea to get a few different quotes from different professional movers so that you can be assured that you’re getting the best deal. Make sure the company is reputable and trustworthy and don’t hesitate to ask about additional fees besides your initial moving cost.
