Four reasons to hire a Cleveland moving company instead of doing it yourself
Managing a seamless home or office move is a huge responsibility. Between the logistics of switching locations, the tediousness of packing and the manpower of loading boxes, it’s a wonder if anything everything makes it in one piece.
Still, it’s better than paying for a professional moving service, right?
Actually, probably not. There are a surprising number of advantages to hiring a professional moving company rather than trying to migrate all of your belongings on your own. Consider this:
Sure, you might be able to wrangle a few friends together to help you move, but you’re going to have to work around their schedules, especially if they have kids or jobs with odd hours. Plus, even after you’ve arranged for them to help, they may have other obligations come up, and postponing the move to your new place might not be an option.
By contrast, a Cleveland moving company will work around your schedule to transport your belongings, and you don’t have to worry about them cancelling at the last moment.
Lifting bulky pieces of furniture or heavy boxes can be dangerous.
Even if you manage to get everything packed up without hurting yourself, operating bulky moving trucks like U-Hauls can be extremely difficult for inexperienced drivers, especially during the winter. Not only that, but you also have to worry about insurance should you bump into anything (or anyone) while trying to maneuver.
A professional moving service has the muscle, know-how and experience (both in lifting heavy items and driving moving vehicles), to get your items to their destination.
They have the right equipment and supplies
We’ve all tried to move something fragile by packing it in a bunch of old T-shirts and newspaper. Even when it works, it makes the trip nerve-wracking after hitting every bump or pothole along the way.
With a professional moving company, you’ll also get professional packing. All of our movers must complete our rigorous three-month/100-move apprenticeship program. During their apprenticeship, our packers perfect all the skills they need to pack every type of item, from treasured antiques to kids toys and everything in between.
Packing is included as part of our Full Service Move and is usually included in Custom Moves as well.
It will save you time
Organizing, packing boxes, loading a moving truck, driving and unpacking at your new home or office all take time. That’s one of the best reasons to hire a professional moving service. You can let them handle all of the packing and moving so you can concentrate on work, family and settling in. You can even customize your move during your one-on-one consultation with our Cleveland moving company.
Another big reason a lot of people attempt to move on their own is to save money. However, sometimes the cost of moving everything yourself can outweigh the price of hiring a professional service, when you consider the cost of:
• a moving truck or trailer
• gas for the truck
• packing supplies and moving equipment
• missing work if you have to take a day off
This, coupled with the potential costs of broken property due to inappropriate packing, can quickly stack up.
