Moving is never really viewed as a small task or easy undertaking. But, the choice to move by yourself can definitely make an already difficult task more stressful. We understand that not everyone can afford to hire professional movers, but it’s important to keep in mind that movers offer a variety of services and prices. For example, you can pack your own things which will save you cost-wise. But, if you choose to do your move completely on your own without any help from a professional moving company, we feel like there are a few things you should know.
Professional movers are trained in packing your belongings in the most efficient and safest way possible. They are trained to pack in such a way that even your fine china makes it to its new destination without a scratch. Can you say the same? If you pack it, are you going to just use old newspapers and hope for the best? If it gets broken, how will you replace it?
Moving boxes and furniture is manual labor that is not easy on the body. If you are older or suffer from any type of knee, shoulder, or back issues, then moving is really not something that you should attempt. It is quite easy to injure yourself, particularly if you already struggle with pain in any of the areas mentioned. Our movers are trained to move all items in a way that is safe so they don’t sustain such injuries. They also have all the proper equipment needed to complete the task properly without unnecessary physical strain.
Even if you know how to properly carry boxes or move your sofa, what happens if you slip and fall while doing it? Even worse, what if you have a two-story home and fall while moving items down the stairs? Serious injuries mean time off work which is not something the average person can afford to miss out on for very long. Not to mention, if you are laid up with an injury, who is going to finish packing and moving your belongings? Who is going to unpack them and move them into your new residence?
