Hiring a Moving Company versus Packing Things Yourself

It seems like you only realize how much you have in your home when you're trying to pack it all up to move. Between dozens of dinner plates and countless closets of clothing, you'd be surprised by how long it can take to get everything into boxes and moved into your new home. Since this can be a daunting task, a lot of people hire a moving company to help them manage.

Since each offers its own benefits, it's important to weigh your options in hiring a moving company or packing things yourself.

When Packing Yourself

You Have a Bit More Control

When you pack up your home yourself, you control every aspect of what goes where and when to pack. If you decide you want to pack up everything in your living room at 11 p.m., that's totally fine. You also put everything into your own truck and drive it to your new home yourself, which gives some people a little more peace of mind.

You May Have Trouble Moving Certain Things

Moving large items, such as a bed frame or a couch, or fragile items, such as glass decor and fine china, can be much harder to do on your own. Especially if you're moving items from above the ground floor, you may find it difficult, and potentially impossible, to manage this alone.

When Hiring Movers

They Cover Everything

Professional movers do much more than physically move your belongings. We cover everything from taking inventory, providing packing materials, carefully packing your items, moving them to your new location, unpacking them, and even arranging your furniture for you. Having professionals do most of the heavy lifting can make your life much easier.

You Experience Less Stress

Especially if you're trying to handle packing and moving on top of a full-time job and taking care of your family, moving can be extremely stressful and time-consuming. Hiring movers ensures that you're able to go about your day calmly, knowing you have a professional and trusted team taking care of the brunt work of your move.
