Moving is considered to be one of life’s most stressful events, right behind the death of a loved one and divorce. And it’s not hard to see why. For one, moving causes a major disruption in your normal routine, especially if you have a family and children. There’s new commutes to deal with, possibly new schools to acclimate to, and the adjustment that comes with leaving an old, familiar home and living in a new one. Plus, there’s also all of the extra work that comes with a move: packing, loading the moving truck, loading things into your new home, and unpacking everything while trying to figure out where things ended up and where they should go now.
The best way to ensure a move is as smooth and stress free as possible? Hire a good moving service. Though it might cost more than doing-it-yourself, well-qualified, reputable movers more than make up their cost in the sanity-saving services they provide.
Movers Save Time
First, movers can save you time. Most people are already busy with a full-time job, a family with a jam-packed extracurricular schedule, social commitments, housekeeping, etc. It can be hard to find time to eat an entire meal uninterrupted, let alone pack up your entire life. Movers are trained to pack and move your entire home as safely and efficiently as possible. Depending on the size of your space, they can get you packed up an moved out in as little as a few hours.
Movers Reduce Stress
Movers also reduce the stress associated with moving by taking the largest part of the job off your plate, so you can focus on all of the other tasks associated with the move; things like canceling cable service, scheduling closing dates, finding a new babysitter, getting new insurance, etc. Every helping hand counts during such a big change.
Movers Get Things There Safely
Last but not least, movers will ensure that all of your things arrive safely and on-time to your new home. Good movers take care to wrap up valuables, add protective layers around furniture to prevent scratching, and load moving trucks in a way that ensures your things will be secure until they arrive at their destination. Quality movers are also trained and experienced in lifting heavy pieces, and maneuvering awkward furniture in and out of tight spaces, making sure your things avoid nicks and scratches during the move.
