Should I Hire a Moving Company or Move Myself?

In this increasing do-it-yourself world, moving your office someplace new by yourself might seem like the perfect solution. You’ll save money, make sure everything is packed the way you want it to be, and stick to the schedule you’ve planned, right?  Think again.  There are many things that can go wrong during a move and you’re probably not equipped to handle some of those things the way professional movers are.

Hiring a professional moving company can prevent many headaches and strains, not to mention stress.

 

Cost and Time Organization

Professional movers organize your costsMoving by yourself doesn’t necessarily mean you’ll save time or money. It just means the costs will be spread out through different pieces of the process and that you have to schedule everything yourself. You’ll have to keep track of all those different pieces to ensure a smooth move. Scheduling and paying for the daily use of the moving van, moving within a set time frame and paying for the gas to do it, securing the packing supplies on time, paying for the insurance and managing any unexpected surprises can be overwhelming. A moving company will wrap all your costs together with a custom quote and simplify your list of things to worry about with a comprehensive schedule.  

 

Heavy Lifting

Professional movers have know how to pack everything securely Making the decision to move by yourself also means you’re making the decision to pack and load everything up as well.  Getting the right equipment and enough people to help you move can be a hassle in and of itself. Moving all your computer equipment safely and maneuvering all your furniture without damaging your walls can be nearly impossible by yourself. A professional moving company has done this thousands of times though, the experienced movers know exactly how to turn your desk to fit it through doorways, and on the first try too.  All computers will be packed securely as well, so you won’t have to worry about remembering which way the screen should face to avoid breaking it.

 

Security   

Professional movers are prepared for emergencies Do you have a plan in case there is an emergency during your move, for instance are you prepared if you drop your equipment and it breaks or the moving truck breaks down during the move? Things happen on moves that you weren’t planning for and if you don’t know how to handle the problem then your whole schedule might be altered and your business operations stopped. Professional movers however, are insured for your equipment and have extra trucks in case the first one does break down. A moving company takes into account all manner of possible incidents and plans for the worst so you can have peace of mind knowing that your office equipment will arrive in tact and on time.
