Your home just sold, you’re ready to move into your new place, now it’s time to box all of your belongings, realize how much “stuff” you accumulated, and physically get them to your new home. You’ve almost made it to the finish line, but you may be wondering if it’s worth the cost to hire professional Houston movers or suffer through it and DIY your move. We’re here to help you weigh the benefits of hiring a moving company if you’re on the fence!
Benefit #1 Less labor for you
One of the biggest advantages of hiring a professional mover to handle your move is that you’re handing over the labor. Lifting countless boxes, large pieces of furniture, and appliances is no small feat. It can even be dangerous if you lift from the wrong place or overexert your body. Save yourself, and your family a few nights of icy hot patches and hire professionals.
Benefit #2 It speeds your move up
Your move may end up being more expensive if you hire movers but you’ll end up saving when it comes to time. Professional movers can load your items faster than you can on your own, and they have larger trucks which equals fewer trips. You’ll have to take less time off of work to complete the move. Plus, the icing on the cake is that you can save major time and labor if you opt to also hire professional packers to pack your home before your move.
Benefit #3 Your belongings are being handled by pros
Professional movers have the expertise to load your items efficiently and safely in the truck which reduces the chance of damage to your belongings during the moving process. They will also come equipped with standard supplies to protect your items like shrink wrap and protective blankets.
Choosing to hire professional movers can (literally) lighten your load during your move. However, ensure that you are hiring verified professional by checking that they have a TXDot# listed at the bottom of their website, checking their online reviews, and by asking your family and friends who they trusted with their last move. Happy moving!
