Reasons You Want to Hire Professional Packers and Movers

People often hesitate at the idea of hiring professional packers and movers. Moving is typically approached as a do-it-yourself task, leaving you responsible for everything from packing to driving the moving truck. However, there is a lot more that goes into a successful, hassle-free move than meets the eye.

Why Professional Packers and Movers are Your Best Moving-Day Option

Whether you have years of experience moving or it’s your first time, relocation can be a daunting task that spans several days. It takes a careful, organized approach to ensure that you don’t miss a single step – or item.

Handing the reigns over to professional packers and movers frees you up from the most time-consuming and physical portions of moving, allowing you to focus on getting settled in a new home. Plus, it’s hard to ignore the benefits of hiring a team of experts:

Your moving crew was hard working, efficient, and polite. My only complaint is that the head mover was slightly condescending to the other two team members, and those two team members were fantastic.

  • Your belongings are safe during packing and transit. Haphazardly throwing items in a box and failing to secure them in the moving truck increases the likelihood of damaged and lost belongings. Professionals come prepared on moving day with proper equipment & packing materials, and know how to best pack, arrange and secure items so they’re protected during transit. Additionally, most movers give you the option to purchase insurance, which covers the cost of any damaged belongings.
  • Movers can store items if necessary. Inclement weather, last-minute home repairs and inspections are just a few things that can delay move in. And if any of these unexpected events arise, you don’t want to get stuck with a truck full of belongings. Professional moving companies often have storage facilities available in the area, securing your belongings for an extra day or two until you’re ready to move in.
  • Professional packers and movers offer a variety of transportation options. Moving doesn’t always involve a few boxes and a moving truck. Cars, motorcycles and bulky furniture need to make the journey, too. Look for a moving provider that can accommodate these items. Worried about an aquarium breaking in the moving van? Movers can ship directly to your home. Have an extra car you can’t drive? Professional movers will load and deliver your car right to your driveway.
