Why you should consider hiring a Moving Company instead of DIY
New job in the big city? Promotion across the country? Starting up your dream business out-of-state? Everybody moves eventually. And while leaving college may have been easy with a backseat full of garbage bags (stuffed with all of your worldly goods) many household moves are simply too big and complex to try to carry out on your own. Moving companies fill an important niche. They do a really unpleasant job that most people really don't want to do. While your new city may hold endless potential for adventure and discovery the actual process of moving involves lifting heavy stuff up and down stairs, getting really sweaty, and discovering just how dedicated your closest friends really are.
Moving companies aren't always the solution, but if you've never used one before, they will undoubtedly save you so much hassle and stress, you'll wonder why you ever did it yourself.
Here are some pros to hiring a moving service. Pro:
- No heavy lifting - Can't figure out how to get your couch through that narrow doorway, down the four flights of stairs and into a truck? You can worry about other things when you hire a moving company. Even if you're pretty physically fit moving can do a number to your back if you aren't used to proper positioning to carry heavy items.
- No Packing - For an extra fee many movers will pack up your house and apartment. Simply set them to work and they will box up everything, room by room, and you can focus on your new job, new school or whatever other challenges await you at your destination.
- No having to drive a moving truck or trailer - If you seldom drive or are used to a commute in a sub-compact car, the idea of driving a rented moving truck or trailer can be a bit intimidating. Add to the fact that said truck is filled with all of your prized possessions and the stress factor can really weigh you down. If you are planning a move across multiple states then driving a moving truck can be time consuming, costly and stressful.
