When it comes to moving across the country, using a moving company is typically a no-brainer. However, many people will assume that they can easily handle shorter trips, such as moves across town, on their own. The thing is, shorter moves can be just as tough, and you may want to think twice about trying to do it without a moving company. The following are a few reasons why you should use a moving company even for shorter trips:
- Moving requires hard physical labor – Professional movers can make moving your boxes and furniture look easy, but they have the training and experience that’s needed. Not only can you wear yourself out trying to move your furniture and heavier boxes (making the process take longer than expected), but you could end up hurting yourself as well.
- Moving companies help prevent damage – It’s tempting to skip all the tedious bubble wrapping when you’re only moving 10 minutes away, but fragile things still don’t like being jostled, even for a short time. Movers know exactly how to pack boxes and furniture so that they will not be damaged during transport. Additionally, moving companies have insurance that will cover damaged items, whereas if you damage your things during a move, you’ll be out of luck.
- Moving companies can help save you money – Moving yourself usually won’t save you any money; in fact, it could cost you more money. Even if you don’t spend money renting a truck, odds are you’ll have to make multiple trips to get everything moved into your new home. The gas costs for this will pile up. And if it takes longer than expected, you may have to miss work.
