No one actually enjoys the moving process, but it must be done from time to time. Hiring professional home movers can reduce the stress—read these five reasons why.
Need help finding help? DexKnows has listings for all types of moving companies, from local movers to those who do long-distance and international hauls.
Unless you work or have worked as a professional mover, you just can’t pack with the same skill and speed. You also should never try to move valuable or delicate items as an amateur; piano moving without the proper steps can result in serious damage to your instrument. And if your next home sits in another country, say Canada or Mexico for example, you need international movers to help navigate the many issues involved.
You can certainly rent a truck instead of hiring local or international movers, but then you have to actually drive it. Not everyone has the strength to handle a large moving truck, much less the skill to navigate roads safely at the wheel of one.
When you use professional home movers, the company’s insurance covers any damage to your property or loss. It also covers damage to your home during move-out and move-in. If you already sold your house, the last thing you would want to do is pay for repairs accidentally caused by helpful friends and family members.
Professional home movers know how to properly bend and lift and carry to avoid injury. Do you? You may think you do, but add to your load a 50-pound box, and you might just reconsider. Medical bills can quickly eat up any savings from DIY-ing the moving process.
After a certain age, say college, asking friends and family to help you move when you can afford to hire professional movers can take a toll on relationships. Also consider how you will feel if a friend were to drop your flat-screen TV down the stairs. You can’t really be upset with someone working for pizza and beer at the end of a move.
Now that you know the five reasons to hire a professional mover, put together your plan, and use DexKnows listings to find international or local movers.
