Moving across the state? Thinking of hiring a truck or just asking friends for help? Don’t waste time trying to track down a rental truck and then enlisting friends to do the heavy lifting. Preserve your friendships and hire a professional moving service for your move. It can benefit you immeasurably and you won’t regret it. Here are a few ways hiring movers can help ease the stress during your intrastate move.
1. They Pack and Unload
Movers will become your best friends during an intrastate move. They have the resources and capacity to pack, load and unload all of your belongings with the utmost care. Treating your belongings like their own, they arrive complete with all packing boxes and implements necessary for your move. They will painstakingly pack all of your belongings without getting lost in the nostalgia of the move. You know you are apt to take a 30 minute detour from packing to reminisce about the handprints in the concrete sidewalk and the height notches on the door frame. Allow professional packers to come in who can stay focused and complete your work.
Professional movers also have the capacity to keep each box labeled and associated with the room it came from. They will not be accidentally including living room decoration with the bathroom items. This will greatly increase your ease of unpacking when you arrive in your new home; and, if you are still too busy, many of these companies now offer unpacking services. No more distraught searches for towels on your first night in your new home, everything will be unpacked and thoughtfully placed in the linen closet.
2. They Store Your Belongings
Are you moving across the state but don’t know where you will be living? Hoping to stay in a hotel for a week while you look at rentals? If so, you may need storage services for your belongings. Trying to find an affordable storage service in an unfamiliar place is just another headache. By using professional movers, they have the facilities to carefully store all of your precious things until you are ready for them to arrive. This means you will have one trusted company doing all of the packing, storage and unpacking and greatly reduces the risk of any lost items in your move across the state.
3. They Allow Flexibility in Your Shipments
Some movers will have you fill the truck and if you didn’t get a chance to finish packing up your last couple items the day before you will be out of luck. Fortunately, there are good companies out there who allow you to add on to your shipments and alter what items are going or staying more readily. If you already have a large shipment going out one day, they have the capacity to add-on smaller shipments with it, creating more continuity of the move and less opportunity for belongings to be misplaced.
