Don’t Get Tricked: Why You Should Always Hire Professional Movers

To reduce the stress of moving, always hire professional movers to do the job right. You're moving! There are so many things to do. Here's why hiring professional movers should be one of the first decisions you make.

Movers vs. Friends and Family

Unless you are moving into a dorm or your first apartment, you probably have more heavy furniture than your friends or family want to handle. Not to mention that the last question friends want to hear is the “do you want to help me move?” Professional movers have the training and experience to squeeze your sofa through the doorway and up and down the stairs without damaging the sofa or the doorway. Can you say the same for Uncle Bob?

Insurance and Loss

Professional moving companies carry insurance against damage to your belongings or injury to one of your moving professionals. If your cousin drops your framed diploma, is she going to give you $300 to have it redone? Things have a way of disappearing during a move. A moving company will inventory your belongings and compensate you for any losses, should the need arise.


By the time you have purchased all the packing material, boxes, and tape required for packing, you probably have saved very little. You could use that time to organize your things for the move.

Proper Tools

There are times when furniture needs dismantling. Bed frames, dressers, mirrors, TVs, and light fixtures are just a few of the things that need taking down or apart. Professional movers bring the proper tools to handle all these situations. They also bring dollies, blankets, rollers, and hoists to get delicate or heavy pieces loaded and unloaded. No matter how organized you are, moving is stressful. For peace of mind, security, and reliability, always hire professional movers.
