Why you should hire a moving company
- Insurance: When moving items over a long distance, mishaps may occur along the way. Extreme weather, potholes and road accidents may damage the items. Moving companies use insurance to cover such occurrences. They have content insurance for the items and workers compensation for the employees conducting the move. Your friends may also break and misplace items when helping with your move. Their inexperience coupled with lack of equipment results in inefficiency. In such instances, you cater for the loss alone.
- Value for money: Moving companies have services that are worth every penny spent. They are well organized which ensures the move flows smoothly the entire day. The company has enough labour to deal with all items within the given time. Your items are wrapped and safely packed in quality boxes. Movers use trucks that are fairly new and modified to increase their efficiency. Moving companies have the option of full-service moves which include packing and unpacking. They also have storage facilities for all types of items.
- Swift: Moving companies work faster than your friends. They have conducted thousands of moves successfully. They have a clear view in mind of how the move should progress. This makes them work seamlessly for long hours. The employees are trained to pack, load and transport the items fast. The workforce is sufficient and well-coordinated. They use equipment like dollies and ramps to move heavy items like stacked boxes much faster. Advanced technology such as real-time satellite tracking ensures the trucks use the shortest and safest routes. The drivers work in shifts to ensure they have no stopovers. The trucks are modified to move for hundreds of miles without any breakdowns.

Tips for having a smooth move
- Preparation is important to conduct a successful move.
- After booking the services of a professional mover, enlist friends to help with your move.
- Inform the neighbors of your move. It is polite to let them know of any disturbance expected.
- Sort out your stuff. Sell or donate items you no longer use. Ensure friends who help with the move are considered first when giving away stuff.
- Inform the movers of any new developments that may arise when packing.
- Label the boxes clearly. In case of fragile items, use strong colors and huge letters, to enable easy identification.
- Have an overnight bag with you. This helps you on the first one or two nights before you complete unpacking.
