Moving is a nightmare of an undertaking. It’s time-consuming, it’s hard and it’s incredibly stressful. This is especially true if you’re moving to a new city or a new state. You might have friends to help you load the truck but once you get out there what then? You’ll have to unload it by yourself or with your family. Not the most ideal situation.
On top of that, I’m only talking about the loading and unloading part. If you’re like me and you own a 2 door car then this just got a lot more interesting. Sure you can load up the back of it and call it day but if you’re moving hours away that just isn’t going to work. Plus, not everything is going to fit. (A fact I had to come to terms with) What other options are there for you? Here are 4 reasons you should look into hiring a moving company to handle your next big (or small) move.
1. It Got Lost In The Move
That right there is one depressing sentence to say. Anyone who’s moved before is familiar with that sentence, sometimes in regards to an item of sentimental value. Well, when you hiring a moving company that sentence gets retired from your vocabulary. Many companies use professional inventory management systems to ensure that all the items that get packed away and moved reach the final destination.
It’s professional and if an item does (it happens rarely) go missing there are often systems in place to reimburse the owner for the cost of that item. The whole process is easy and pain-free on the person moving.
Moving is a nightmare. I know, I know, that was literally the opening I used by if there was a better way to put it I would put it that way. Nightmare seems to fit. The whole process is difficult and overwhelming, I almost had a panic attack the last time I moved. Hire a moving company to help take that stress off your shoulders. They will take care of the hard part and leave you with the emotional stress of leaving your home. Although depending on your circumstance you may be overjoyed. Even still, they’ll make the whole process easier for you.
They will come pack away most of your belongings with some exceptions that vary from company to company. Then they’ll load them up in the truck and get them to your new home. All you have to do is pay and show up.
3. No Labor
Moving is not a labor of love. It’s more closely related to an unholy alliance that you make with labor. You have to put in the work or leave all of your stuff behind. Not with a moving company. You may also not be capable of moving your items yourself. With a moving company, you don’t have to lift a finger. Just sit back with whatever drink you best prefer and watch the men work. Supervision is the best job, obviously. The other jobs don’t come with a lawn chair and drinks.
We’ve had (or been) the friend that doesn’t show up to help out when someone moves. It’s frustrating and you were even paying in pizza! (The best currency) A moving company though is contracted. They will be there when they say they’ll be there.
