Thinking about hiring a Seattle full-service moving company to handle your next move? It’s definitely a smart idea. Many people wonder if it is cheaper to hire movers or to simply move yourself. While in the short-term, moving yourself may be the cheaper option, there are hidden costs and detriments to doing so. Our Seattle full-service movers at Established Moving & Sturge understand that you may be on a tight budget for your upcoming move. Why waste precious time moving, when we can move your belongings for an affordable price? Here are a few reasons you should consider hiring movers, even if you are on a budget.
Depending on the size of your move and what you are moving, you may need to rent a moving truck. Pricing depends on the size of the truck needed and how far you are going- a cross-country move will end up costing you. Add in truck rental insurance and gas, and you might be paying as much as it would cost to have Seattle full-service movers come over and help you out (truck included).
Moving that heavy sofa, table, mattress or bed frame is a daunting task, especially if you don’t have the right equipment. Not only can you injure yourself, you could damage the furniture or the walls and floor of your home. Then consider all the packing supplies, moving boxes, padding, tape, etc. that you’ll need to get all your other belongings safely to your new home or office. Purchasing all these supplies for your move can add up, especially when you realize you also have to do all the packing and lifting.
Even if you don’t hire a professional moving company, you will still need some help on moving day. If you have friends and family that can come out on moving day to help you, you should be prepared to thank them with food and drinks, dinner, or a small gift to show your appreciation. It can be tough to find volunteers to help out, much less those who are skilled at loading and unloading heavy boxes and furniture. This could lead to broken or scratched up items or worse, a moving injury.
Arguably more valuable than money is time and energy. Moving is a process, from organizing, cleaning and packing all your items, to loading and unloading them from the moving truck. It is both physically and emotionally exhausting. Why put yourself through that mess when you can hire a moving company to do it for you? Instead of worrying about executing every detail of your move, you can relax and focus on what is important to you. Nothing is more valuable than that.
