The Advantages of hiring a Local Mover

January 09, 2014 | Staff

Moving to a new city or home can be stressful in itself, but just thinking about all the stuff you own that needs to be moved can be quite the headache. You may be under the impression that hiring a local mover is just one more expense you should try your best to avoid, but sometimes doing everything yourself isn’t the best idea. Many people get injured trying to move everything themselves, and usually end up spending near the same amount on equipment that they need to get the job done.

If renting a moving truck and learning how to correctly pack your valuables don’t seem all that appealing to you, I highly suggest hiring a local mover. These guys really know the safety precautions; have the muscle and best of all – already have all the equipment that is needed to successfully perform a move. Read on for some of the top reasons to hire a local mover for your next move!

1. No More PuzzlesPeople that have had to move in the past may understand this more than people new to the concept. Sometimes it really takes more than one brain to figure out how to get a certain piece of furniture out of a doorway or down a pair of stairs. How DID that L-shaped couch get in our basement anyway? If you find yourself puzzled with trying to make all the pieces fit, hiring movers can help with the migraine. They have dealt with all kinds of furniture in all kinds of places. Whether it’s a top floor in an apartment building or the basement of an old house, professional movers have the brainpower to get everything safely out of your home and unto their truck.

2. Think Economically Buying or even renting the materials can be a dent in your wallet that you do not need to make. Hiring a local mover will make less of a hassle for you, and they come with all the moving materials that you would need. No need to stress about if you forgot to order something; most of us don’t realize how much those moving blankets can come in handy when dealing with furniture. The professional movers have already thought about what would make the process easier and come prepared.

3. Time is of the Essence Your time is important and especially if you are dealing with an office or business move, time is extremely imperative to success! No one wants to lose business because of a relocation, and professional movers understand this. They work efficiently and within your tight schedule to make sure that all equipment is dealt with speedily and is taken care of. Hire a local mover that deals specifically with companies to make sure you get the most bang for your buck.

4. Packing is Enough of a Hassle Why make things harder on yourself after spending so much time on packing all your knick knacks into boxes? You deserve a nice break from the whole moving process and should be able to kick back the rest of the way. If you don’t even feel like packing, many local movers offer the service with the purchase of boxes. They know how to handle fragile items and (no offense), they can probably pack faster and more efficiently than you. This is because they were trained with their packing skills and have had a lot of experience working with different sized items to make them fit best.

5. Costly to Move Yourself – In More Ways Than One More than likely if you are attempting to move everything yourself, you will have to take time off of work. This will mean a piece of your paycheck will be missing and you will probably end up overexerting yourself in the end. Many people take on the whole moving process less seriously than it should be taken and end up getting hurt. They overestimate themselves and their personal belongings, often get damaged while trying to move larger pieces of furniture.

Keep these things in mind when debating between moving yourself and hiring a local mover. There are many advantages to having a local mover do the work for you, and overall the process will be much easier.
