For a lot of people, moving can be a pretty stressful process. Sometimes, just the thought of having to pack all your stuff and move to an unfamiliar place is enough to induce nightmares. That’s why professional movers can really be a godsend to the average American who, according to studies, move approximately 11.7 times in their lifetime. But despite the obvious benefits of hiring local movers to help, there are still a few myths that cast a bad light on them. In today’s post, we debunk a few of them.
1. You Have to Pack Everything Yourself
This is one that we hear quite often. Packing up your entire home is one of the most overwhelming and tiring parts of moving. Fortunately, most moving companies do offer packing services. Many movers even go the extra mile by labeling every box as well as doing the inventory for you.
2. Movers Will Not Be Careful With Your Belongings
A reputable moving company will be careful to treat your belongings as if they were their own. They will pack and transport your items with care to keep them safe while in transit. If your items do get damaged by accident during a move, moving companies will be more than happy to reimburse you.
3. It’s Cheaper to Move Yourself
Remember, moving can be a complicated and taxing process. While it may seem more economical to rent a moving truck and do everything yourself, your actual costs may end up being the same due to some unexpected expenses that most people fail to take into account like packing supplies, fuel, meals and even lodging.
