5 Reasons to Hire Professional Movers, Even if You Don’t Have a Lot of Stuff

By  Susan

It can be tempting to forgo hiring professional movers when you don’t have a lot of stuff in the name of saving money, but the truth is, hiring a professional team of movers is money well spent.

Here are five reasons why you should hire professional movers, even if you don’t have a lot of stuff to move.

You Can Customize Services That Fit Your Budget

It’s true that moving services will always cost more than doing it yourself, but that doesn’t mean moving services have to be expensive. That’s especially true for small moves when you choose a mover that offers customizable services.

For example, movers that specialize in moving just 150-2000 pounds have smaller trucks, and smaller trucks cost less.

You can also customize affordable services for your budget. You might choose to pack your boxes yourself to save money on having professional movers do it for you. You can also choose from things like curbside delivery or choose to have breakable items shipped while you take care of the easy stuff.

Mover Can Help You Streamline Your Move

Chances are, you’re no moving expert. Even if it’s something you’ve done a few times before, it’s not something you’ve done day in and day out.

But movers do conduct moves day in and day out, which means they can help you streamline an otherwise confusing process.

They can help cross things off your moving checklist and keep you on schedule. They may be able to help by offering:

  • Professional cleaning services
  • All of the packing supplies you need
  • Haul-away services for bulky items you no longer want
  • Indoor and outdoor storage options

Your Friends and Family Will Help—But They Don’t Want To

It’s impossible to do a move on your own. That means you’ll be asking your friends and family for help if you don’t hire professional movers.

Your friends and family love you so they will likely come to help if you ask, but that doesn’t mean they want to. Save yourself the awkward ask, and save your loved ones from having to haul a bedframe up a flight of stairs by hiring professionals to help you move.

That doesn’t mean your friends and family can’t help at all! Invite a friend over for drinks and snacks and have a packing marathon. Or, ask a family member if they would be willing to bring dinner by for a few nights before your move so you can pack up your pots and pans.

There are plenty of ways for your friends and family to help. Just make sure you leave the heavy lifting to the professionals.

Free Up Your Time to Focus On Other Things

Moving takes up a lot of time. It can take weeks to pack up boxes and prep large furniture items for transport. It can take a lot of time to load up a moving truck properly and unload it at your final destination too.

It’s normal for thoughts of moving to fill your brain, but there are so many other things that need your attention. Whether it’s taking care of small children, work, or other responsibilities, professional movers can help.

By packing, loading, and unloading your stuff, professional movers do all that stuff for you. That means you can take less time off of work and focus on getting the kids to and from soccer practice instead of moving.

Peace of Mind

A lot can go wrong when you move. Driving a big moving truck yourself is just asking for an accident, while improperly packed and loaded items can easily become damaged or broken during transport.

Save yourself the anxiety of trying to do it all yourself by having professional movers do it for you. They know exactly how to pack commonly broken items, like electronics, mirrors, and appliances so that they don’t break or shift in the truck and smash other items during transport. You’ll be able to rest easy knowing that all of your belongings will make it to their final destination in the same condition they were in before you left.

Don’t fall into the trap of thinking that because you don’t have a lot of stuff, you don’t have to hire professional movers to help. The truth is, a professional moving team is an important ally for any move—no matter how big or small. They can help your stuff get there in one piece, save you from the headache of doing it yourself, and even help you save some cash along the way!
