Is it worth it to hire professional movers for your next home move?

TWO MEN AND A TRUCK mover talking with customers

In the nearly 40 years we’ve been in operation helping customers move forward, there are two questions we hear more than any other: How much does your service cost and is it worth it to hire professional movers?

We recently touched on the cost of moving and what you can expect when receiving a moving estimate, but determining if hiring movers is “worth it” narrows down more to your situation and personal preferences. Of course our main goal is to make every move we complete worthwhile for our customers by sending professionally trained, background-checked, and drug-screened movers to execute a seamless home move with the highest levels of care and compassion in the industry.

But finding out if hiring movers is worth it comes down to what you’re looking for in a home move, your financial situation, and how much you’re willing to do or how much you’d like others to handle.

Let’s go over some of the key areas to help you decide if it’s worth it to hire professional movers!

Home moving = heavy lifting

First and foremost, the biggest thing you’ll want avoid when hiring professional movers is the heavy lifting. It’s not easy to move your belongings from one home to the next, and getting couches or appliances up and down stairs and around tight corners requires the ability to be precise while lifting heavy objects.

If you’re not trained in moving heavy items, this could result in damage to your old home, your new home, and your belongings. This is something you’ll need to consider, especially if you have a larger home with more items than something like an apartment move.

Professional movers will provide the quickest moving experience

Building off what we said above about this being a job for professionals – it’s worth nothing that not being experienced in home moving will inevitably create a longer moving experience when you’re trying to handle the home move on your own.

TWO MEN AND A TRUCK moving teams specialize in safely and efficiently moving our customers. They are professionally trained at getting the moving truck loaded, transported, and unloaded so you can focus on more important things. If time is important to you or you don’t want to spend multiple days going back and forth between homes on your own, then hiring a professional moving company might be worth it in the long run.

Determining the best plan for your budget

Hiring professional movers will come with certain costs and factors such as how much you’re moving, how far you’re moving, and the resources needed to be allocated to your move, which all play a role in determining your final bill.

While renting a truck, acquiring professional moving equipment, and bugging your friends to help you complete the move over multiple days might be cheaper in some scenarios, it’s not as cheap as you might think.

It’s important to find out what your budget is for moving, how much time you want to dedicate to the moving process, and how much work you want to do on your own when determining if hiring professional movers is the right move for you.
