Moving represents a new part of your life that’s just about to begin. This can be exciting and fun, but it can also mean a lot of pressure and therefore stress. Most people have a lot of stuff: more than what a few mates or family members can tackle in a day. There are a million good reasons to hire movers, but we can’t make this page too long… so today we’re going to stick with our top 4 reasons for hiring professional movers.

1. Less stress

Too much stress is proven to be very bad for us humans, and it’s no lie that moving can be a very stressful experience if you don’t do it right. Professional movers reduce your stress during the move, not just by a little bit, but by a lot. You don’t have to worry about whether your mates are going to show up on time, whether they were able to borrow a friend of a friend’s trailer or van, and whether they’d actually help you move boxes or just use your move as an excuse for a catch-up. Professional movers arrive and immediately set to work.

2. No heavy lifting

No heavy lifting is another reason why hiring movers could be the solution for you. There’s no price on safety and it must be said that lifting heavy boxes all day can take a toll on your personal health. If you’re not comfortable with lifting heavy items, it’s best not to attempt it. Lifting incorrectly is one of the main ways to sustain a back injury: something you want to avoid at all cost. Professional movers are trained in lifting techniques and have experience in moving items, no matter how heavy and cumbersome.

3. It’s faster

Why hire movers? Well, it’s definitely faster than doing it yourself. An expert team of movers might be able to move your stuff in one day, rather than 2 or 3 days if you were to do it yourself. This is because they have routines, methods and techniques to get the job done as efficiently as possible.

4. It may actually work out cheaper

Think about if you needed to take 3 days off of work just to move your stuff. Presumably, you’d have to take those days out of annual leave. You could have worked those days instead, earned money and then just paid a team of movers to move your stuff in 1 day. So, depending on your situation, hiring a team of movers could work out cheaper for you in the long run.
