Moving can be a challenging experience. With nearly 5 million Canadians moving every year, the question of whether or not to get professional movers is often left undecided until the very end. If you are currently debating as to whether or not you should get professional movers, then the following is for you. Below we list five ways professional movers can simply your life and make up for their cost. Let’s begin.
They Bring Moving Materials with Them
Many movers will bring packing materials with them. Their moving materials can include things like sheets, blankets, and other buffering objects that will keep everything in place and secure during transportation. With a professional mover, you may not have to go out and get the moving materials yourself, and never again do you have to worry about running out of tape or bubble wrap.
Some Moving Companies Can Pack For You
Packing is a service some moving companies offer. If you need assistance or are too busy to pack, then have a moving company do it for you. They will pack and label your belongings as requested, providing you more time to handle other aspects of the moving process. If nothing else, they will be able to use their considerable experience moving to pack things away as requested.
They Do This For a Living
You have a day job, and (presumably) you’re good at it. You’re well trained and take pride in your work. Quality professional movers are the same. They take pride in moving your belongings safely from one place to another. Do not choose a company that does this as a side business or hires part-timers. Choose a professional moving company that treats their employees well, offering high salaries, WSIB coverage, overtime, holiday pay, vacation pay, and other benefits. If you aren’t sure, check whether they are certified by the Canadian Associated of Movers.
Experience Transporting Challenging Objects
Along with being able to do the move in fewer trips, a professional moving company will have the necessary experience to transport challenging objects. For example, are you versed with the correct moving techniques for a piano or 72” television? Along with physically moving the objects for you, a moving company will lend you their talent and experience to delicately move even the most challenging objects.
One Less Thing To Think About
In the grand scheme of things, so much of what you will have to consider has nothing to do with physically moving your belongings. There is setting up the new home you will be moving into, there are considerations with work and life, etc. Provide yourself with one less thing to think about by going with a professional mover.
