Why you should hire professional movers
Moving has heavy items such as L-couches and king size beds that require professional handling. They are dismantled and moved in bits. They take up less space and are moved much faster.
Relying on your friends to move such items may spell trouble. They lack the experience and training.
Professional movers have grippers which hold such items firmly. They can also be loaded onto dollies and strapped. This ensures maximum safety.
Mishandling these items can break your limb or lacerate your skin. It can also lead to chronic back and knee pain.
If you own expensive items such as electronics and heirlooms, it is advisable to use a professional mover. Some items are valuable and need extra caution when handling. They are delicate and require trained and experienced personnel to handle.
Items such as glassware are wrapped with bubble wrap and packed amongst clothing. This saves space and ensures they are well protected. Movers also use old wine boxes to move fragile fine china. They are wrapped with newspapers or magazines and packed vertically.
Keeping track of your belongings is a responsibility of the company. They can tell the exact location of the truck ferrying your load in seconds. The carrier is separated into different compartments and the expensive items loaded separately.
The company finally covers the items with full value insurance which ensures reasonable repayment in case of accidents.
