This is a question many people come face-to-face with as they prepare for one of the most epic moments in their lives: Moving! Although this seems like a very simple question to answer there are several factors to take into account.
From my experience, anyone willing to put tape on their furniture to keep the doors from opening while it’s being carried cares more about the final cost of the move than they do the care taken to insure thatnothing is damaged. I have also noticed that even the most determined do-it-yourselfer will tap out and hire trained professionals to transport the heavy items. Some people find their time to be entirely too valuable to spend it packing, renting a truck, carefully loading the truck, navigating traffic in a truck and carrying items into their new home or office. Lastly, when weighing the cost of doing everything themselves versus paying a moving company to handle their belongings most people find that it’s cheaper to just have it done right.
So if someone asked me “why should I choose a moving company” I would mention all of the previously mentioned points and add that the peace of mind associated with having trained professionals alleviate the stress of uprooting your household is priceless. That is, of course, if you choose the right company.
