When planning a move, cost matters. You might want to save money by taking care of the packing, logistics and installation yourself. Before you do, consider how hiring professional movers can save you money, possibly more than you would by doing it yourself.
- The costs of moving yourself can add up – Moving companies typically charge a lump sum or hourly rate. As part of this price, they provide everything that’s needed. This means that you don’t have to rent a truck, a dolly or other moving equipment. The costs of renting such equipment on your own can quickly add up to the point where you might as well just hire a moving company.
- Moving companies will stick to a schedule – If you have a strict schedule you need to stick to, a moving company will ensure that you get all moved in on time. If you’re moving on your own, you’ll find that it’s extremely easy to fall behind schedule. This can end up costing you, especially if you’re forced to take off from work to complete the move.
- Moving companies are insured – If you don’t have moving experience and you don’t have the proper equipment, then you’re more likely to damage some of your furniture as you attempt to load it up into your truck. Additionally, any of your possessions could be damaged during the move if you didn’t pack or load your things properly. Not only do you not have to worry about this nearly as much with a professional moving company, but they’re generally fully insured in case anything is damaged.
- You’ll prevent injuries – If you don’t have the proper training, you’re more likely to hurt yourself attempting to move heavier objects. This can result in the need for time off work or for costly medical attention. Leave it to the professionals instead.
