Of course, it is cheaper, but I’m sure you’ll encounter how you won’t have any friends to help. Inconveniently, they will all be busy that day, or have hurt backs from the last friend they helped move. Seriously, I have a friend who helped move a couch when he was in college and has issues to this day from the damage he did to his back. Our movers do this every day. They know proper and efficient lifting techniques.
Also, when you try to move yourself, you realize how incredibly easy it is to nick a wall or damage a piece of furniture. If you are moving IKEA furniture, no big deal, but if you have some valuable pieces, it pays to use professional movers in Newtown Square.
Professional movers have all the right equipment to get the job done. They come prepared with the right sized trucks, hand trucks, and other hand tools that your move calls for. Often when you take your move on by yourself, you’ll rent too small of a truck which requires more frequent trips back and for and this wastes a lot of time.
Hiring professional movers really comes in handy, not only because it saves your back and allows you to keep your friends, but it also frees up a lot of time that can otherwise be spent doing tasks other than the actual moving. This could be setting up your cable and utility service, getting a new driver’s license, or preparing your new home so that it’s move-in ready.
All of your valuables are insured when you hire a professional moving team. If you don’t trust yourself moving your valuable items and let’s say you don’t even trust someone else to move your expensive stuff, isn’t better to collect from someone else who broke it rather than having no one to blame but yourself for breaking it? We think so! It’s always a good idea to ask what your insurance options are as a consumer when initially hiring your moving company.
Believe it or not, hiring professional movers can save you money in the long run. If you add up what it would cost if you potentially broke something, rented a truck and hand tools, injured yourself, lost items, paid for refreshments for friends and family, and invested time in moving yourself then it may turn out to be cheaper and safer to hire professional movers.
