How to Hire Professional Movers
Anyone can move items around when planning to move out of your penthouse and into your brand new home. Not everyone is skilled enough to get the heavier stuff moved into your pick-up truck. Sometimes the pick-up truck itself is not enough to fit all of your valuables. Ever considered to hire moving helpers? You simply have to scroll down and see factors to help you decide.
The common reason professional movers captured a market is because not everyone can carry a boxful of items needed for moving. It may be due to health reasons or fear of dropping stuff due to clumsiness. If you tend to trip occasionally and fear tripping on the wrong time, having some men do the heavy lifting, literally, for you will get the job done better. That is what outsourcing is for. You pay someone else to do the job that you are not exactly good at or a job you don’t like doing at all. Add the idea of moving items from a rented office - photocopiers, printers, desktop computers and all - and you would definitely more than 1 guy lifting stuff up. This brings us to the next pointer.
Renting someone else carry some boxes from the building to the trailer better be one who the driver tagged along for the job. Professional movers would send at least 2 men where one of them is the driver and the other would be assigned to do the packing, lifting and watching over the boxes with your valuables. A group of movers assigned to move the heavier equipment would have at least 3 men, driver included. Two men would be fit enough to lift furniture, equipment and other items around the house or office that cannot be disassembled for packing purposes.
- They understand the word “fragile”.
You may have seen that YouTube clip about a disgruntled customer complaining for everyone to see about how some movers mishandled his stuff. It led to breakage of heirloom items. With antiques and other valuables dropping their market value depending on how bad the breakage was, if you intend to sell some items off Etsy or eBay, that means losses for you. Whatever reason you have for having valuable keepsakes, you’d rather assign the heavy lifting on movers that know which items are best packed in boxes labeled “fragile”.
Don’t worry. Your pick-up truck, if you have any, can still come handy in the moving process. If moving out of state and you need to make sure that the movers are guided well, you can drive and let the trailer trail you. (Good pun.) It’s also a good place to stuff with items you’d rather handle yourself. Highly recommended if you have not shaken off any trust issues regarding professional movers like the poor chap in the viral YouTube clip. For any other issues that might still cloud your judgment, get in touch with an actual moving company close to where you are at the moment. Yelp will be your best friend.
