For your first apartment, you might have been able to get away with bribing friends with pizza for their moving services.
However, most people have too much stuff to move into an apartment by themselves. If you have heavy furniture and countless packing boxes, you’ll need the expertise of a local moving company.
Keep reading to learn why it’s always a good idea to hire professionals for apartment moving.
Avoid Lifting Heavy Furniture
Do you remember that scene from “Friends” where Ross couldn’t get his couch around the tight corners of his new apartment building’s staircase? No matter how many times Ross screamed “PIVOT!” the couch refused to budge. Furniture is not only heavy, but bulky. This means that it can be difficult trying to maneuver your couch around hallway corners or lug it up the stairs. Save your back by hiring professional movers. Movers are used to carrying heavy loads and have experience in making sure nothing is broken in the process.
Even people who are in the best shape of their lives can get injured during an apartment move if they don’t know what they’re doing. Our residential movers know how to carry boxes and lift furniture in a way that minimizes risk of injury so they can continue on to the next job.
Would you rather load a moving van yourself for multiple trips or have movers do all the work for you? We don’t recommend trying to move by yourself if you have a lot of furniture and boxes. Our professional furniture movers have the experience needed to make sure everything is secure for transport in a timely manner.
You’ll want to hire a local moving company at least a month in advance if you plan on moving on a Friday, Saturday, or Sunday. Many of our customers choose to move on the weekend because they want to avoid taking time off from work. Hiring moving help helps you save time so you can spend the rest of your weekend unpacking before you have to return to work.
Protect Valuables from Being Broken
Professional movers know how to pack boxes and furniture so that they won’t be broken on the way to their destination. Furthermore, apartment movers are held accountable for anything that they break. If you asked your friend to help you move, it would be awkward asking for them to pay for damage. Avoid that awkward conversation by hiring a moving company that is professional and reliable.
Moving to a new apartment is stressful enough without having to worry about how you’re going to move all your belongings to the new place. The good news is that a local mover gives you fewer details to worry about. Instead of having to worry about whether your items will be safely transported, you only have to worry about unpacking and settling into your new home.
