By Mark Bennett Subscribe to RSS | March 13th 2012 | Views:

There is always a question that pops up in our mind when we decide to move. The question is should we hire a moving company to move our things or do it by ourselves. Whatever the answer to this question is, which is quite difficult; there are some factors that we need to keep in mind. They are money, difficulty, time and the complexity to move.

If you're moving across town, a self-move may make more sense than if you're moving across the country. Still, to ensure you're making the best decision, it's a good idea to consider all the moving options.

In case you are choosing professional mover, it will save you a lot of time and efforts. Professional movers are quite experienced in their business and will give the assurance that your belongings will not get damaged. Below are the reasons why professional movers are opt for moving

Coordinating the moving

When your old home is only right down the street from your new home, it’s pretty easy to move everything. But sometimes the case may not be like that. If you’re going through multiple states, things can become much more complicated. A professional moving company can coordinate the entire process through a network of contacts, ensuring you have a solid team there to help you from start to finish.

Packing the boxes

It is a common thing that as an amateur mover, you are likely to make a lot of mistakes when you pack your boxes. While you may have moved five, ten, or even twenty times, professional movers have handled hundreds (if not thousands) of moves. When you hire a professional mover to pack your things, you can be sure that they will pack them safely and securely, as well as efficiently.

Space Calculation

Normal people tend to eyeball the amount of space they will need while moving. This goes from the number and size of boxes need to the size of the truck to the hallways and doors of the new location. The professional moving team will actually use methods that allow them to measure the cubic footage needed for each of these things.

Insurance Claim

One thing that you need to know is that when you are packing there can be chances when you move, you could damage and break your things. In this case, you have to deal with anything that is broken. If you chose the service of a moving company and something gets broken or damaged by the moving company; they have an insurance company that will handle the claim for you.


Another thing that could make you go for the moving company is that they are quite experienced as they handle these kinds of activities day-to-day. It is their job to have the right supplies (boxes, hand trucks, tape) and to know who to contact throughout the moving process. They also have individuals who are able to handle all of the heavy lifting for you throughout the whole process.

Stress Free

Your move is going to be stressful. Hiring a professional moving company can reduce that stress significantly. And even if something does go wrong, you are left with options that help make things right. Consider hiring a moving company to make the experience as pleasant as possible. Also if you are doing the moving by yourself, you may need to take leave from your office and put your other commitments on hold.

Now while checking out the above points, you may feel that hiring a professional mover is great, but you need to keep in mind that sometimes hiring professional movers can be expensive. Sometimes during the peak time, you may not get the right professional movers. Also some moving companies provide poor service by hiring inexperienced staffs who do the work less attentively.

So before you go and hire a professional mover, try to research a lot about the company before you hand over the responsibilities of your things.
