If you are moving within the same town or even neighborhood, you may not be considering hiring the best movers to assist you. In fact, you may not consider hiring movers at all. With a new home so close by, it is easy to think that there will be little difficulty in moving into the new home. Some people are so confident in this that they spread the move out over a week or longer, handling everything on their own. The main issue is that trying to move without professional assistance only leads to wasting more time on the first phase of the move and an increase in hassle.
Moving in town is still moving
It does not matter if you are moving several blocks or 30 miles, a move is still a move and there is a lot to do in preparation. Moving requires a significant amount of time being spent on tasks that include:
- Decluttering to avoid moving anything unnecessary
- Cleaning the entire home
- Last minute lawn maintenance
- Breaking down furniture
- Wrapping up breakables and carefully packing art
These are crucial tasks of moving regardless of the new home's location. In fact, these tasks do not become easier during a move within the neighborhood. The work remains the same and it is best to seek professional assistance to ensure that everything goes smoothly.
Everything must be packed
Hiring the best movers is one way to avoid the drudgery of packing. Someone else can handle this aspect and make life a little easier in the process. We have many clients who hire us to handle the entire move, which includes boxing everything up, ensuring the boxes are labeled according to the room they belong in and then transporting the boxes. From dishes to clothing, our team can complete all the pre-move packing.
Moving day made easy
Another common mistake made by moving families is to assume that since the move is happening in town, family and friends will be available to assist. Sometimes this works out according to plan but there are challenges to this theory.
- Most people are busy with their own lives
- No one likes to move
- Being willing to help is not the same as being physically capable of doing so
As a result, relying on friends and family can often result on waiting around for them to show up or deal with chaos when they do. Moving day can become incredibly stressful when depending on the good graces of other people to lend a helping hand. By hiring a moving company, families can be confident of when help will arrive and of exactly what will be done on their behalf.
Additionally, even when friends and family do help with moving everything out of one house and into the truck, they may not have time to stick around and unload at the next location. There is simply no guarantee of the help that will be received, regardless of how good the intentions are unless a professional moving team is hired.
