1. You are going to be a lot busier than you can imagine.
If you are making a long-distance move, you need to focus on arranging the logistics of getting your family settled into a new city. Transferring medical records, booking hotels, changing the address for mail, that takes time and you need to get everything right before you leave. And even if you’re just moving in the same zip code, you still need to schedule the move around your work hours, your kids’ school days and think of allocating enough time to unpack everything.
Professional packing services can help you shed some load off your shoulder and take away one less, but big, burden from you. Professional packers will help you secure your items.
2. Movers and packers are insured.
You’re moving into a new apartment and trip walking up the stairs. Whoops! Grandma’s prized ceramic egg is now in a hundred pieces. Too bad! (Hope Grandma’s not too furious.)
But if you hire a professional packing service, it’s covered. Do they accidentally drop your new MacBook? It’s covered. Snag your couch on an exposed nail? It’s covered. In most cases, though, professional movers and packers are a LOT more careful with your belongings than you are. They do this all the time (unlike you), so mistakes are rare. Wouldn’t you like the peace of mind knowing that your belongings are in good hands?
3. Moving companies have the correct equipment.
