Everyone is looking for a way to save some money where they can. This is especially true when you’re about to embark on moving to a new home. Moving can be an expensive endeavor no matter how you cut it.
Trying to scale back the costs of a move often starts with considering the do-it-yourself option. This actually may end up costing you much more than you’d think – or than you’d planned. Here are seven reasons why hiring professional movers in West Palm Beach may be one of the best decisions you’ll make regarding your relocation.
Your family and friends love you and they want to help you in any way they can. They may not say it aloud, at least in your presence, but they really do not want to help you move. Even under the best of circumstances, even with the promise of free pizza and adult beverages, the amount of stress and physically demanding work on their day (or days) off is not fun. Hiring a professional moving company can relieve that burden, and maybe save a relationship or two as well.
You may be in great shape, but moving bulky furniture and appliances can be awkward and downright difficult. Professional movers do this for a living; they know how to best maneuver these items to avoid property damage and bodily harm. They also come equipped with special equipment to help them do it quickly and safely.
You may find yourself in a position where your move was unexpected or happened much more quickly than you had originally anticipated. If you’re moving into a smaller home and you haven’t had a chance to decide what to do with all the stuff that won’t fit in it. A moving and storage company will pack it up and take it to a secure location until such time you’re able to do so.
Handling the move yourself is guaranteed to be time consuming. When it gets down to the last day, a professional mover will be ready, willing and able to free that time up for you to take care of more pressing matters. Getting the house ready for the new owners to move in, making sure your utilities are set up for you and any other last minute things.
If your television or stereo get dropped or damaged in a DIY move, you’re probably just out of luck. And the money you’ll spend replacing these items. A moving company will have a variety of insurance options from which you can choose to cover your personal treasures. Your movers take a complete inventory of your belongings and are fully accountable for their careful packing and safe delivery.
Your professional movers have a great deal of experience moving large, difficult-to-maneuver items. Getting your sectional sofa or oversized bedroom furniture around the corner and through that arched doorway is something they can handle with much less difficulty than you might find trying to wrangle it yourself. They have loading the truck down to a science. It gets done fast, efficiently, and above all, safely.
Many homeowners discover too late that they’ve underestimated the size of the truck they rented, the types of tools or materials they might need, the cost of fuel for long distance moves and the amount of time required to get the job done. All of these miscalculations add up quickly. Professional movers have the benefit of experience here, as well.
