Moving to a new city or even down the street is a stressful experience, just think about all the things that needs to be done with the packing of the rental truck, Yes it’s a big headache.
You might be telling yourself that you are saving yourself so much money by doing this all by yourself… You’re a big kid now and can take on the challenge? Right? From the untold injuries that occur during a move to the broken items, hiring a professional does not sound like such a bad idea after all. You think you are saving money, but you really not: Most likely if you are trying to move everything yourself, you will have to take time off work. Now that means a little bit of your paycheck is going on the list of “Moving Expenses”.
Have you heard the phrase time is of the essence? My time is important so I am sure yours is too, especially If you have to deal with a commercial move. When hiring professional movers, they know they are paid but they also know there will be a tip at the end if done in a timely manner.
You had to pack your things now you have to move them? Give yourself a little break and mostly give your back a break, you need it! Trust me the stress will be waiting for you after everything is moved and the boxes ready to be unpacked, oh the stress of unpacking. I am sure you have heard people say, it’s been six months and I still have not unpacked all my things.
People don’t think about the extra cost of materials for the move: You will need blankets and packing material. Oh, I forgot tape, boxes, shrink-wrap, and mattress cover.
I am sure I am missing other knick knacks that are needed for moving, but you get the idea. Do you like puzzles? Well you better learn fast, when packing a truck or a pod it just like a puzzle… Oh, how do I fit a 3 bedroom house into 8×16 pod or 26 ft. Truck? This is where the professional come into the picture.
