What Do Professional Movers Do For You
So you have a big move coming up. It’s not just a quick move down the road or to a nearby town – it’s a long distance move.
At Muscular Moving Men, we’re here to help. If you’re unsure why you should enlist the help of professional and experienced movers, read on to find out more.
The Full Service Move
Full service professional movers can take care of all activities involved with a move. So, if you’re not wanting to involve yourself with all the tasks that come with a move, having professional movers take care of things means less stress and more time for you. Moving is a big job. And if you’d rather not take this on with your time and energy let the professional movers handle it for you. Of course, having the professionals take care of things isn’t the cheapest option, but the tremendous convenience, time savings, and stress savings is pretty much always worth it. So, your tossing around the idea of you not having to lift a finger during the moving process and wondering just what do professional movers do for you… let’s take a look.
Protecting Your Home
The first step professional mover will take will be to protect your home during the packing and loading process. Normally this will include putting down protective runners on the flooring and adding protective coverings around the doorways.
Big time saver. There won’t be any reason for you to make multiple trips to the store to gather up boxes, tape, packing paper, bubble wrap, etc. Opting for the full service move means the moving company will come with everything needed including furniture blankets and any additional pads needed to protect your belongings and your home.
Pack Your Belongings
Without question packing is the most difficult and time consuming aspect of any move. So, what do professional movers do for you? If nothing else, it’s the packing. Full service movers will take care of the packing for you. They’ll pack up the entire house and pack it safely in a fraction of the time it would have taken you. They will be able to expertly organize, pack, and wrap those specialty and trickier items to make sure they make the move safe and sound for the long, often bumpy journey ahead. The packers will generally not label for individual items in a box, only label by the room from which they found and packed it. If you want to be more specific on the labeling, then that will be something that you would be welcome to do.
If you have larger pieces of furniture that will need partial or full disassembly, professional movers will do this for you. They will also re-assemble your furniture at your new home when the time comes.
Loading And Unloading
This is a biggie for most all of us. Let the professional movers do the (literally) heavy lifting. After packing up your home, the team will load everything safely and securely on the truck and make sure it is all properly strapped in. And when they arrive at your new home the professional movers will unload and unpack for you as well.
When you use a long distance moving company to assist you with your move, one of the best aspects is that they do the hardest part for you – transport your items to their new location. This can be tricky and costly to organize, so having a professional, safe, and experienced company do it for you means you don’t need to worry.
Unpacking At Your New Home
As mentioned before, full service professional movers don’t just pack and load… the unload and unpack when the deliver your belongings to their new place. This way you can focus on getting settled in as quickly as possible. Your only job during the unloading and unpacking phase is to provide direction to the movers as to where the boxes go and they’ll take care of the rest. It’s simply all part of the long distance moving company service!
Removal Of The Packing Supplies
After a move in your new place will look like a packing supplies bomb went off leaving you with what could be hundreds of boxes and various amounts of packing supplies to get rid of. Your full service movers will make sure that the mess gets cleaned up and properly disposed of.
Full Service Moving In A Nutshell
If you’re wondering what professional movers do for you… if it has anything to do with the move, full service movers will most likely take care of it for you. As a part of the hiring process you’ll want to work with your moving company to determine the exact plan as well as what your expectations are that they provide as a part of what they are quoting you.
A Word On Costs
Just like any other service the more you want taken off your plate the more the move will ultimately cost. The final cost of your move will depend on factors such as:
- How many movers you have on your project.
- How much stuff you have to move.
- The distance of the move.
- The amount of packing materials needed.
- The detail of the tasks expected of the movers.
- The seasonal rates of the moving company.
What Do Professional Movers Do For You
- Your home will be packed by professional quickly and efficiently. You won’t have to spend hours upon hours dealing with procuring packing supplies and figuring out the best way and what boxes to pack them in.
- The movers provide the muscles, so you won’t become totally exhausted (and sore) from all the packing and loading fun.
- The professional movers have been trained for what they do. They have the required knowledge, skills and tools to complete your move as efficiently and safely as possible.
- Your belongings will be insured. Professional moving companies are required to provide liability protection. This minimum protection is only $0.60 per lbs per item. So, you should look at the options and deductibles available to you to more full cover your personal belongings.
At the end of the day, for most people, the time, energy, and stress saved makes going the full service route well worth the additional costs. Packing and moving yourself can take weeks to accomplish. With professional movers you’ll have a timetable set right up front. And when you arrive at your new place you can focus on getting settled in as quickly as possible and not spend the next several weeks breaking down boxes and trying to get them into your recycle bin.
