Moving with ProfessionalsAccording to a recent US census bureau statistics, over 15% of American move in a year, many of them during the summer because of the warm weather. Some people decide to move by themselves with the help of their friends and a few cars. Some rent trucks and load up their personal belongings and others prefer to hire professional moving companies to do the work for them.
When you’re working with friends or by yourself, moving day can be even harder than expected. Moving in general requires a lot of planning and work that leads up to moving day. What with packing, locating moving boxes, sorting through things and so on, by the time you actually get to the move, you’re so tired that doing it by yourself just adds to the stress levels.
By hiring professionals, people get insurance with their move. They’re insuring that they’re items will get to their new home, safely and undamaged. When you’re working with reliable movers, your move is taken care of. You don’t have to do any of the work after you’ve packed. Disassembling things, lifting heavy appliances, rugs and cumbersome items is not your chore. By hiring professional movers, you’re also not dealing with the little details like parking measures in different areas, risking injury from heavy lifting, wasting gasoline and putting on miles on your leased car from all the back and forth you would have by moving yourself.
Reputable movers like the local San Antonio movers will also make the moving day come and go faster. By having professionals drive the moving truck, bring your things into your new home, and help you assemble certain furniture, moving day and getting settled happens fast.
Of course, it’s always wise to do a little research when you’re looking for reputable movers. Compare prices and estimates, but remember that a low price doesn’t necessarily scream reliable moving company. Ask questions and what you can expect from certain moving companies. Don’t forget to also try to get your friends opinion and ask who they had worked with in the past. This will give you a general idea of what’s out there, helping you to further more compare and choose the right movers for you.
If you still think that you rather move by yourself, try to space out the work. Move items slowly, and on different days. You can then do it at your own pace, trying to reduce the stress a little. Use the weekend to do more work. Watch your body posture as you lift heavy items, and try not to overpack your moving boxes because they’ll be heavy.
