More than five million homes were bought in 2016, making it the best year for home sales in a decade.
While that means great things for the economy, it also means that a lot of people were moving from one house to another. And some of them probably made the mistake of doing it all themselves.
Moving to a new home should be an exciting time for you and your family. What it shouldn’t be is an exhausting and stressful time.
Rather than stressing out over an endless to-do list, trust your move to the professionals.
Below, we’ve outlined five reasons why you should hire professional movers the next time you change homes.
1. Professional Movers will Pack You Up
The biggest task of any move is the packing.
Most of us have an unrealistic sense of how much we actually own.
We end up buying too few boxes and having to make multiple trips to the store, which wastes time. Or we buy too many boxes and don’t know what to do with the extras, which wastes money.
Trust your packing to professional movers, and they’ll come with all the supplies needed to get your belongings boxed up and ready to go.
2. Your Most Precious Belongs Will Arrive Safely
Another reason packing is such a challenge is that most of us don’t know the best way to pack fragile items so that they don’t break in transport.
Professional movers have the experience and expertise needed for such a difficult task. They’ll know how to wrap and pack breakable items so that they arrive to your new home in one piece.
Plus, if you purchase insurance, you can be compensated if anything does go wrong.
Whether you’re moving locally or long distance, you’ll want that safety net for a peace of mind you can’t get by packing everything yourself.
3. You Have Guaranteed Storage if Something Goes Wrong
Even the best-laid plans have the potential to go wrong, and moving is no different.
If circumstances delay you or you have to arrive later than planned, the last thing you want is to worry about what’s happening with your belongings.
A professional moving company should be able to provide storage for your items until you arrive.
This additional cost is a small price to pay for knowing that your belongings are safe for as long as it takes you to arrive home.
4. Prevent Potential Injury
When you’re getting ready for a move, the last thing you want to deal with is getting hurt unexpectedly.
Trying to lift and move heavy boxes and furniture can often be the reason for unwelcome injuries.
Trust the heavy lifting to professionals, who have the right equipment to make the task easier and safer for everyone.
You want to start your new life in a new home on the right foot. Not on a broken one.
5. Learn About Your Neighborhood
Trusted local professional movers have probably worked in your new neighborhood before.
That will make your move more efficient, but your movers may also be able to share some information about your new neighborhood.
If they’ve spent time on other streets or driving around as they transport belongings, ask them if they have anything to recommend.
They may have passed a great park your family would love or a cool restaurant that could be great for a date night.
