You – Moving is stressful; it is the 3rd most stressful situation in life following death and divorce. Planning a move is overwhelming and tiring. You have to pack, minimize belongings, find friends and family to help, find a truck, load all your furniture and boxes to fit in a truck, drive truck to new location, unload, and unpack.
Professional – Hiring a professional takes a lot of the stress and hard work out of the equation. You can have professional movers give you an estimate to have them load and deliver your stuff or you can go with full service movers, which will pack all your belongings nicely, unload, unpack, and even set up furniture. It may be a little more costly but will save you time and energy. Having professional movers gives you a reliable option that will keep your belongings safe and protected to give you a piece of mind.
2. Time: Don’t waste your time, spend with your family
You – Think about the time it will take to get all your packing, loading, and unloading done. Time is money. How much is your time worth? You could be spending time with your family, making dinner, getting the children to school instead. Plus, professionals will get it done in a fraction of the time.
The average person is not used to lifting and maneuvering a fridge or washer throughout a house or benching a couch. You will probably need to get your closest friends and family to help you move, hopefully they are willing to give up their weekend. With all different types of people trying to manage the move there will be some compromising on how to get it done.
Professional movers are trained professionals and are typically strong men that are used to lifting and moving heavy furniture and boxes. They also usually have a system to get it done quickly and efficiently. This will save you a lot of time from getting distracted and trying to figure a way to fit everything in a truck. While the professional mover is driving your stuff to your new location safely, you can be on a plane or drive and relax without having the worry of driving and maneuvering a large truck.
3. Breakage: Keep your TV and other items safe with moving professionals
You – If you or your friend or family member drops a flat screen TV or prized possession, you will be responsible for the damage and always secretly think about that one time your friend or family member broke one of your prized possessions.
Professional – The most important part of a move is how all your stuff is loaded into boxes and placed into the truck safely. Movers are trained on loading everything efficiently and effectively to ensure that everything fits and is kept safe. Plus, many moving companies offer insurance for special items and reassurance that everything will arrive in one piece.
If anything does happen and it is the movers’ fault they will be responsible for damages and keeping you happy.
4. Equipment – Nice to have all the equipment you need ready
You – It’s a pain to get all the boxes you need for your packing. In fact, many people underestimate just how many boxes they need and half to stop midway and find more. Plus, buying boxes or finding free boxes is time consuming.
Most likely you aren’t used to hauling a huge truck around with tons of your possessions. You may also jump in the drivers spot being in charge of all your belongings without any experience in driving a large truck and this could result in damages in your belongings or accidents. You may choose a truck that is too small to fit your belongings and realize it half way through loading it or get stuck with a truck that is too large and end up with extra space.
Professional – Movers come with all the equipment needed for an easy move like ropes, belts, and boxes. We are trained professionals and can navigate the streets and heavy load with ease.
5. Save your aches and pains
You – Save your aches and pains; moving is back breaking work. It requires a lot of effort and may even send you to the chiropractor or doctor if you aren’t use to such strenuous work. You may even have to spend several days recovering from the move with all your sore muscles and joints from lifting heavy furniture and boxes. You may need some time to recuperate and soak sore muscles. It could be days until you feel well enough to unpack, organize, and even feel up to meet the new neighbors.
Professional – Hiring a professional means you have more time to get used to your new house and even happy to meet the new neighbors. Some full service movers give you the option to have someone to unpack your things as well, which will save you even more time and effort.

Your agent’s packing team will arrive one to two days prior to the actual move day and will use the industry’s best packing materials to protect your belongings.
On moving day the van operator will inventory all items to be included in your move and provide you an inventory form for your signature. Carefully review this document, along with your other paperwork. Once signed, the loading process will begin.
Consumer tip: Separate all items being packed for the move from those being transported by you to prevent any confusion during loading.
After loading, the van operator will inform you when to expect delivery of your shipment based on your pre-planned window of delivery. You will also receive a phone call within 24-hours of your delivery as a final confirmation. Be sure to provide the van operator with your contact information during travel to your new residence.
Moving – Step 5: Delivery and payments
Please be at your residence to meet the driver, who will typically wait up to two hours for your arrival. Should you fail to arrive in that time, additional waiting time charges could occur for the van operator to remain at residence until you arrive or he/she may deliver and store your belongings in a local warehouse.
The van operator will require payment at your new residence. Acceptable forms of payments are: cash, certified check, or traveler’s check. A credit card may be used when arranged in advance.
Moving – Step 6: Unload and Unpack
Once unloaded, the driver will request your signature on all delivery documents. In the event of any loss or damage, please note the items involved on the inventory form prior to signing.
Consumer tip: Drivers are required to assemble bed frames and unpack mattress cartons to setup most beds. If additional services are needed, please notify your agent.
