Cost Savings

You’re probably wondering how hiring a moving company can actually save you money. Well, for one, you won’t have to buy any of the packing supplies or hunt down boxes, which gets expensive when you buy them from office supply stores. A moving company will also supply you with a truck to transport all of your belongings.

Time Savings

They say time is money and a well-planned move can take weeks with the most time-consuming part being figuring out how to carefully pack, transport, and unpack all of your items. Professional movers will do the planning for you, which allows you to focus on other things related to your move.

Packing Services

Packing every item in your home is a time consuming, stressful task and you can hire a team of professionals to do it for you. One of the biggest perks of hiring a moving company is that many of them offer packing services along with their moving services. These services come with packing supplies that include durable moving boxes, bubble wrap, wrapping paper, moving blankets, packing tape, markers, labels, etc.

In addition to packing, they can disassemble your furniture, move your furniture with dollys or furniture pads, and they have blankets and shrink wrap to protect fragile items. Gone or the days where you’d have to gather your family to maneuver a heavy couch down the stairs and strain your back in the process. Moving companies will do all the hard work for you so you can spend your time doing more important things!

Health/Safety Benefits

You can avoid all of the heavy lifting, bending down, unpacking, and reaching up during your move by hiring a professional moving company. Movers know safety techniques to reduce the risk of injures like how to lift heavy objects without pulling out their backs. Also, if you ask friends or family to help you move, you risk them getting injured or pulling muscles.

Inventory Services

When moving to a new home, it’s easy to lose track of what you’ve packed. Many professional moving services will take inventory of all the items in your home to ensure that your belongings arrive safely to your new home. Each item is covered by insurance and if by any chance the items are lost or damaged in the moving process, you’ll be compensated by the company.
