Moving furniture and boxes can be exhausting!
It’s the process that involves wrapping each item, loading it onto the moving truck, securing it inside the truck, transporting it, and then unloading it safely into your new home. If you are only moving one item, that might not be too hard. However, imagine moving an entire house of 30-40 furniture pieces and boxes up and down a ramp all day! Now, that is a full day of hard work!
Here are a few guidelines to determine if you are up to the job or if you should hire professional movers:
1) If you need to move several items or just one item, do you have a vehicle large enough to transport it in? If not, then you need to see about renting a truck. If you are going to rent a truck, consider the cost involved to pay for the truck, the gas and the insurance vs. hiring professional movers. A moving company will arrive with the truck and moving equipment. It might be more affordable to hire full service Utah movers.
2) Are you physically able to lift your furniture? Many customers comment that they hire professional movers because they have hurt their back in the past and can no longer lift heavy items. Sometimes what you save on your own health is worth the cost of hiring movers.
3) Do you have knowledge of how to move furniture so that it doesn’t get damaged? Believe it or not, moving furniture is a skill. There are certain tricks to moving furniture so that it will fit through doors without getting damaged.
4) Do you have the necessary equipment? Moving requires moving pads, tie downs, dolly’s, and ramps which are all needed to wrap, move, and secure your load while it is being transported. Again, professional movers arrive with all of the necessary equipment so that you don’t have to worry about it.
While it might be tempting to move your household items yourself, it is usually more cost effective and time saving to hire professional Utah movers. You will be happy on your moving day when your shipment is safely loaded and delivered to your new home. Moving is hard enough without having to lift the furniture yourself.
