Professional movers are great for many reasons. They get your move done on time and are trained professionals so they get your items from point A to point B without damage. Plus, unlike friends and family, there are no last-minute cancellations with the pros, and you won’t tweak your back from lifting too many heavy items improperly.
The cost of hiring movers is extremely variable. We offer a la carte services like truck rental, storage, loading and unloading, or packing and unpacking. So, the price depends on what services you book. Then, the type of move also affects the pricing. A large move of a four-bedroom home will cost more than it would to move a studio apartment, or just a few pieces of furniture. Other factors in the price include the time of year and the day of the week. The variability in pricing is the reason why most moving companies offer free quotes. That way you can compare the different quotes and find the company that offers the services that are most compatible with the services you want and your budget.
When you have specialty items, you definitely need to hire professional movers. Items like pianos and pool tables require special knowledge to move them without damage. These items weigh a lot and you could seriously injure yourself if you try to do it yourself at worst, and damage the item at best. Movers have the training to get the item there without these risks.
Hiring movers is simply safer. There are risks to your own personal health that occur when you try to do things yourself. The most common moving injuries include back strains and hurt fingers or toes. Those can put you out of commission for at least a few days! The other way that pro movers are safe is that they pack your items to last in the moving truck. They have been trained both for their own physical safety and the safety of your belongings. When you pack a truck yourself, you may not have the expertise needed. Something may fall over, breaking or damaging something else.
