Reasons to hire professionals when moving next door


In the relocation world, there is not a thing that has so many misconceptions attached to it as short distance moving does. For one reason or another, people often think that moving next door will be easy. Moreover, they feel like they have what it takes to move without any sort of help. Unfortunately, this is not true. Short distance moving can turn out to be even more difficult than interstate moving. To avoid any complications associated with relocations, your best bet is hiring professional movers.

Professionals will save you time when moving next door

According to different surveys, it has been estimated that an average American will relocate 11 times in their life. Sounds like a rather shocking number, doesn`t it? Now, imagine if you were to handle all 11 relocations on your own. Can you tell how many hours on average you would spend packing, unpacking, loading, and unloading for each of those relocations? And, if you are moving just down the street, how many hours would you spend carrying those heavy items from one house to another? If you wish to avoid all of that hassle, you need to hire decent local movers Brooklyn. They will save you precious time you would spend trying to relocate yourself over and over again. And, you know what they say – time equals money.

You will avoid any injuries

It doesn`t matter whether you are moving long-distance or just down the block. If you decide to have a DIY move, you will have to lift and carry plenty of heavy items. Carrying these items is how the majority of moving-related injuries happen in the first place. And, if you do not know how serious these injuries can get, take a look at these:

  • Back injuries, including pinched nerves and herniated disks, which are likely to happen when moving next door by yourself.
  • Injuries related to joints, fingers, and toes are also high up on the list of possible bad scenarios during a DIY move.
  • A hernia, which can happen as a result of straining while lifting heavy objects.
  • All types of muscle aches, which are a common occurrence after relocating by yourself.

Is there really a good reason for you to risk your wellbeing and not hire movers? If the only reason why you still have not booked your movers are your finances, then you should try and somehow make it work. We are sure your moving costs Brooklyn will be significantly bigger if they involve a hospital bill.

Movers know how to protect both your old house and your new one

Remember those 11 relocations we have mentioned a few minutes ago? Well, even if you have handled all eleven of them on your own, professional movers have handled hundreds, if not thousands of them. We cannot dispute that you could have experience when it comes to relocating. However, moving companies do that for a living. Thus, they know all the ways of ensuring both your old house and your new house remain damage-free. We are sure you are aware how easy it is to damage the paint or scratch the floors when you have to fit a giant dresser through a small door. Well, your movers will know how to manage just that. Whether they choose to disassemble an item or find some other technique for getting it safely through the door, it is up to them.

Movers will come armed with all the necessary gear

If you decide to move down the block by yourself, beware! You will have to spend days, possibly even weeks preparing for moving day. Gathering all the necessary moving supplies is a tedious and time-consuming job. Not only do you have to find plenty of moving boxes in Brooklyn, but you also have to get lots of protective materials, dollies, and the remaining gear. Why would you put yourself through all this unnecessary planning, when there are movers who can do it for you? Namely, if you opt for movers, you do not have to spend a day buying these supplies. On the moving date, the moving company you hire will come ready and armed for the relocation. Isn`t this one big perk of hiring movers when moving next door? 

You will not have to stress as much

An average relocation is often preceded by moving anxiety. And, in this situation, the distance of your move does not have a saying in how stressed you will be. As an unwritten rule, people are always stressed about packing up their belongings, cleaning the old house, as well as the new one, and unpacking upon arrival. Well, with the help of professionals, you do not have to stress as much. All movers offer a chance of getting packing services, which is one of the most frequently used moving services. If you hate packing for a weekend trip, then this service was simply made for you. Sure, you will have to spend some money in order to get it. However, you will soon realize this money could not have been spent better.

The conclusion

Moving next door is only as hard as you make it. If you decide to help yourself, as well as the people around you, your local moving can be like a walk in the park. To be able to afford reputable movers, all you have to do is make a few cuts. Perhaps you can stay in this month, cook at home and save some money that way? Or you can refrain from buying unnecessary, and expensive, cosmetic products for a couple of weeks? In the end, all of your sacrifices will pay off the moment you step foot in your new home, and your old neighborhood. We wish you the best of luck!

These guys are TRUE PROFESSIONALS! We've now moved with them twice (once in 2017 and then again this week) and we really can't say enough good things about them. Simi is incredibly easy to work with for scheduling and quotes, and the crews - John, Super Mario, and everyone - are just awesome. They're quick, incredibly careful and conscientious, and super friendly. If we ever move again (and god I hope we don't have to) we're absolutely calling them.
