With the current rate of advancement in technology we are a long way from inventing teleporters and bending space-time. This means that we’ll be stuck with the old-fashion way of moving objects from point A to point B for the next, say, thousand years. So, it is safe to say that you can get that idea out of your head, for now at least.
For most people, moving is probably on the list of their least favourite things to do, right after getting stuck in traffic on your way to work on a hot Monday morning while still hungover from last night’s party. OK, that was way too specific, but you get my point – people HATE moving.
Although many people still go for the DIY approach, when they don’t consider the complexity and the severity of the issue, it may end up costing them a lot of time, energy, and money. This is why it is best to leave all that to the experts who not only have all the skills and the required know-how, they also have the right equipment such as a truck with the right size, various hand tools, and of course the right packaging equipment which includes bubble wrap, foam padding, tapes, cardboard packing boxes, and so on.
I can name a ton of reasons why you should go with professional movers, but here are a few of the most obvious ones.
Avoid Hurting Yourself
Lifting heavy object and carrying them up and down the stairs of high story building is the hard way of learning how unforgiving gravity can be. So if you want to avoid broken bones and strained muscles I suggest you leave all the heavy lifting to the pros.
Don’t Make Your Friends Hate You
Don’t drag your friends and family in your mess. Although they will come to help you, they won’t be happy about it at all, just trust me on this one. Again, let the professionals do all the work and you can invite your friends straight at the housewarming party.
As I said before, professional movers have all the right equipment do do the job. Don’t waste your time wrapping stuff in newspapers, making multiple trips just because you rented a small truck, and end up breaking or otherwise damaging you valuable items. Besides having the adequate packing supplies such as bubble wrap, cardboard packing boxes, protective covers and so on, movers will also have the right size truck and specialty equipment like moving pads, moving platforms, hoisting cranes, and many more.
Save Money and Time
At the end of the day professional movers will save you a lot of money and time. At first it may seem costly when you think about it, moving on your own also has its costs like breakage, injury, getting refreshments and food for your friends that came to help you, gas for the truck, and of course no insurance if something goes wrong.
