Is Hiring a Professional Mover Really Worth it?
By dm support

Many people think they can save money by not hiring a professional moving company. However, the result is often just the opposite – people who try to move themselves often end up spending more time and money on their move.

Still, it’s only natural that people ask if hiring a professional mover is really worth it. After all, everyone wants to try to save money where they can. But the following will look at some issues that people may not consider when they weigh whether to hire a professional.

The Impact of Not Hiring a Professional Mover

By choosing to do a move yourself, you choose to do everything yourself. When you sit down and think about it, it’s a lot. Consider the following.

Time to Pack, Load and Drive

Packing all the items in your home is a time-consuming job, and you haven’t even loaded the first box, yet. Once you find a truck to rent, which in itself consumes a lot of time, then you must load all the boxes onto the truck, drive to the new location, and then unload all the boxes. Plan on taking a few days off work to accomplish all this.

Recruiting Help

No matter how you slice it, you’re going to need help moving large pieces of furniture, beds, TVs and heavy boxes. That means trying to recruit people to help you, and with no guarantee everyone will show up on moving day. Also, you need to worry about the possibility someone might get injured.

Getting All The Equipment

As mentioned above, it’s time-consuming to find and rent the right truck. But that’s just part of the moving equipment equation. You may also need ropes, stretch wrap, dollies, straps, and furniture pads, plus all the boxes and tape to pack everything.

Damaged Items

If you damage something when you move it yourself, you have no recourse to get your money back. If a professional mover breaks an item, the mover has insurance it carries to help replace the cost. If your friend breaks it, that cost is probably coming from your own pocket.

The Advantages of Hiring a Professional Mover

In addition to avoiding all the problems above, hiring a professional mover also brings plenty of advantages. For example, Good Greek Moving & Storage provides all the following services:

  • A professionally trained staff who knows how to handle all size moves.
  • An in-person, free estimate of your moving costs.
  • Packing services.
  • Packing materials if you want to pack yourself.
  • Disassembly and assembly of light furniture, such as a bed.
  • License to handle local, statewide and nationwide moves.
  • Secure storage space if you need to temporarily store any of your belongings.
  • Customer service 24/7.

The chances of damage to your furniture – or yourself and your friends – is much less if you hire professionals. Unless you have a tiny number of belongings and plenty of time to plan, hiring a professional mover is worth it. The important step is to search for a mover who has a good reputation and all the services you need.
