It’s not unusual for people to shy away from moving for the simple reason that it’s one of the most stressful things you can do. The thing is, movers simplify and speed up the process greatly. So, when people ask are movers worth it, we say yes, every time. Even if you’re only moving a few items of furniture, movers know what they are doing, and they ensure your move is stress free. How? By doing pretty much everything for you and keeping your items safe.
Movers Pack and Unpack
It has been said, perhaps more than a few times, preparation, preparation, and more preparation. With moving, packing is easily the most daunting aspect, and it’s where professional movers can help the most. Movers will help you pack all your belongings swiftly and safely. They know all the best methods to keep your belongings safe and greatly mitigate the risk of damage. Movers do this by wrapping things carefully, putting them into the right size box or specialised crate, labelling them and making sure the boxes with fragile items are taken extra special care of. To make things even easier, you can ask them to unpack for you too.
Movers Create Inventories
Inventories can be a big job, but they are essential if you’re planning to run a tight ship—rather than a loose mess. Movers will help you by creating an inventory as they are packing your belongings. This time-consuming task ensures you know exactly what has been packed and where it goes so you don’t lose track of anything.
Movers Load the Truck for You
As with packing, there are methods that movers use to load the truck. They ensure that they place each box in such a way that it does not damage them, they don’t shift around and are unpacked in the right order. Keeping bigger items such as furniture safe can also be risky if you aren’t sure how to prevent them from shifting around, how to pack them, wrap them or load them.
Movers Safely Transport Your Belongings
Even if you are prepared to take on the risk of packing, loading and hiring a truck, are you able to drive a truck? Depending on the size of the vehicle, you may require a specialised licence to drive that truck.
Movers Offer Moving Insurance
If you go it alone, you might be able to cover your belongings with household insurance, but it is likely the coverage will be limited. Movers mitigate a lot of risk through careful loading, packing and transportation of your belongings but without that, your insurance company may not be willing to risk covering your move. Movers offer insurance specifically for this purpose.
Movers Offer Storage
Another delightful aspect of movers is that they can put your belongings straight into storage if there’s a delay between moving out of your old home and moving into your new one.
In conclusion, for the sake of your mental health, movers are worth it. The stress is overwhelming when you are worried about many other details such as switching your service providers and getting your children into new schools. For more information and advice, just give us a call today.
