Hiring Professional Movers
The Benefits of Hiring Experienced Movers
A lot of families and individuals moving locally prefer to have professional movers assisting the process of their relocation despite the distance between both locations. There are many advantages for those who choose to hire a moving company for help, including…
- If you choose full service moving or full packing services, you won’t have to pack up any of your belongings on your own unless their personal things or items of sentimental value. The movers will come in before the day of the scheduled transport to pack boxes, disassemble and prepare furniture, and safely package all your stuff before the day the moving truck is due to arrive. They will use all the right packaging materials and practice proper packaging techniques. All boxes will be clearly labeled and handled carefully using the techniques the movers learned during their training.
- You’ll save a lot more of your time and find it easier to focus on other facets of the relocation while the professionals handle the laborious parts of the move as well as the actual transport and delivery
- A lot of your stress will be lifted off your shoulders. You’ll have a much better experience with the relocation than you would if you decided to relocate on your own.
- You won’t have to go out of your way to buy packaging materials, rent a truck, find help, or purchase any kind of moving equipment for your relocation. The movers will handle it all and have everything they need.
- All licensed movers are required to have insurance coverage. They must abide by their state’s minimum insurance requirements. This is usually around $.60 per pound or so. Many movers including A1, will offer their customers the option of purchasing full coverage.
- Since you have less involvement with the process of relocation, you’ll be at less risk for injury. Not to mention, if you accidently break something of yours during the move, it is your sole responsibility to conduct repairs or replacements.
- With movers tending to almost the entire process of your relocation, you can rely on a smoother, less time consuming, and more successful experience.
The Cost of Moving
The final expenses paid towards your move through a qualified moving company is determined after careful consideration for a few things. To come up with the final cost for your relocation services, the moving company must first learn of the miles between both locations, the services you want, the present cost of fuel, the weight of all your stuff, as well as a few other minor details. Once the mover has gathered this information from you, they will calculate what they must so that they can give you an exact estimate.
Reduce the Cost of Your Moving Services
To minimize what you must ultimately spend on moving services, try to book with a moving company during the off-season or whenever they have a promotion or sale going on. Members of the armed forces, students and senior citizens are a few of the individuals that may benefit from a discounted price. Many movers offer discounts to these particular individuals. Never go without asking the mover about these discounts or you may miss out on an opportunity.

Another wonderful way to cut the costs of moving include packaging your stuff on your own instead of purchasing full packaging services. Use the proper packaging and supplies to start the packing process months ahead of time. These materials include:
- Boxes of all sizes
- Packing or box tape
- Box scissors or a razor
- Packaging peanuts
- Bubble wrap
- Permanent markers
- Ratchet straps, zip ties and rope
You won’t come across any reason for the movers to pack your things again if you do it according to their stipulations. Should they have to, you will be charged for the extra labor and materials.
