Are you unsure whether Tampa Florida movers are worth the investment for your next move? Don’t worry, you’re not the only one! Plenty of people find themselves straddling that line – to get professional movers or not – simply because hiring movers means spending additional money on your move. That said, though, there are more than a few benefits to hiring professionals to get the job done!
Tampa Florida Movers: 6 Reasons You Should Hire Professional Movers
1. Less Stress!
Moving in itself can be exceptionally stressful and overwhelming. This stress then gets funneled into every other aspect of your daily life and that causes a whole host of problems. What kind of problems, you ask? You become snappy and moody with friends and family, you lose sleep, your work performance is impacted, you become more susceptible to illness, you feel generally overwhelmed, and you spend less time doing the things you love and spending time with friends and family. This alone is a significant enough reason to hand over the job of moving to a professional moving company if you ask us!
2. It’s Safer
Professional moving companies are trained in how to properly pack, move, and unpack items during a move. This training includes how to properly handle items to avoid injury. Unfortunately, the extent of most people’s moving knowledge in this aspect is “lift with your legs, not your back”. This is easier said than done, though. The truth is that the majority of people who attempt their own move wind up getting hurt. Not only does injury risk damaging the items you were picking up when the injury happened, but it also means pain for you and the possible need for time off work…now who’s going to pay that new mortgage?
As organized as you think you are, there is a different system of organization when it comes to moving, a system that professional movers understand. This method of organization (when it comes to packing and moving) helps your moving company to get your move taken care of quickly and without damaging your property. Attempting your own move without this type of understanding and efficiency will wind up taking you at least twice as long and time is money!
We know that when most people think about hiring a professional moving company they see the expenses racking up. The truth is, though, that very often, hiring a professional moving company to take care of your move for you can save you money!
Because moving companies work with such efficiency and have so much experience, they can get your move completed in no time at all. This faster moving (compared to how long it would take to move yourself) means less time off work or more time to get those little errands that are inherent to moving completed.
You also save money when you hire a professional moving company because your property is completely insured against damage, loss, and theft. Conversely, when you decide to move yourself, you aren’t always going to be insured or you may not be fully insured and this means a financial loss.
Additionally, moving yourself can cost you more than you know if you wind up getting injured during the job. Injuries mean having to take time off work and in some exceptional cases, it can mean permanent disability.
Lastly, completing your own move tends to be a little more costly when you factor in all of the smaller expenses. There’s the rental truck, the gas, compensating friends who help with the move, taking time off work, etc. It may seem overwhelming when you first look at a bill for a moving company, but when you compare that amount to the cost of hiring a moving company, you’ll find that there’s very little difference at all!
Hiring a moving company is a much more reliable way to get your move out of the way. When you book a professional mover, they will give you an arrival time and at that time they will show up with the equipment and the moving team to get the job done. Unfortunately, when you decide to move yourself and you have friends help you with your move, things can be a little more unpredictable. Friends forget about commitments, they back out at the last minute, they decide there is something they’d rather be doing, they get sick, they can’t get their family members truck…the excuses are endless, but they can all wind up costing you money, a day of unproductivity, and time off work!
6. You Don’t Have to Be That Friend
We all know the feeling – a friend or family member mentions that they’re moving and there is no doubt that the next question out of their mouth is going to be “can you help me?” Now, it’s not that we don’t love our friends or family members, but most of us really dislike physical labor particularly if it’s not for our own gain. Hiring a professional moving company to help you with your move means that you don’t have to be that friend that relies on friends and family to get their move done, instead, you can be the one friend who didn’t take advantage of a relationship with others in this way! Trust us, your friends and family will be grateful!
