Short-Distance Move? Why It’s Still Worth Hiring Professional Movers

If you’re moving across town, you might be considering handling the relocation yourself without the help of professional movers. After all, you’re not moving far—so why not DIY the whole thing and save some money?

As tempting as it is to forego professional help during a short-distance move, there are several reasons that you should still hire movers.

Protect Yourself and Your Loved Ones

First, understand that the distance between your current home and your new home has nothing to do with the amount of work that goes into physically loading and unloading a moving truck. Without professional movers helping you, you’ll still need to get every box and piece of furniture from your home into the moving truck and your new place.

This can be a physically demanding endeavor, especially if you have larger/heavier furniture that you need to disassemble and reassemble for the move. When tackling this kind of physical labor yourself (or recruiting help from friends/loved ones), you could put yourself or others at risk of injury.

Why take that risk? Hiring a short-distance moving team lets you get all your items from point A to point B without worrying about moving-related injuries.

Enjoy Added Peace of Mind

When you hire professional movers, you can also enjoy the peace of mind that comes with knowing that your movers know how to properly handle and relocate even the most challenging furniture and other items without causing damage. In some cases, movers may even be able to disassemble and reassemble furniture pieces to get them transported safely.

Regrettably, if you choose not to hire professional movers, you will be responsible for any damage that may occur to your furniture or other belongings during the move. And since you are not a professional, there is a higher chance that this damage may occur. Unfortunately, these expenses can cancel out any savings you have gained from not hiring a moving company for your short-distance move. 

Save Time and Stress

Hiring professional movers for even a short-distance move can save you considerable time and stress. Without worrying about loading and unloading the moving truck or transporting items between homes, you can focus your time and attention on other important matters—such as getting utilities set up at your new place or handling other loose ends.

This is especially true if there is inclement weather on the day of your move. Do you really want to deal with the stress of loading, unloading, and driving a moving truck in bad weather? Leave it to the professionals, keep your belongings safe, and allow yourself to focus on other aspects of your move instead.
