Studies show that the average person moves about 11 times in their life. While moving can be an exciting time to start something new, it can also be stressful, time-consuming, and expensive.
Luckily, there are steps you can take to make your moving process more manageable. If you’re moving in the Tallahassee, Lakeland, or Tampa area, Browning Moving and Storage has full-service movers that can make your move seamless. Here’s why hiring a moving service is a great idea.
Estimates indicate that, if you live in a three-bedroom house, you will need 80-100 boxes to move all your possessions. If you plan on handling this on your own, this means that you need to locate this many boxes, pack them with all of your belongings, and seal them securely.
With full-service movers, they will take care of all of this for you. Because they have experience with moving, they will know how to best pack your items to maximize space and keep them intact. They will also be able to pack up your home much more quickly and efficiently than you could in your home.
Some people assume that they will be able to handle their own move, but then end up injuring themselves on moving day. Your couch may be a lot heavier than you anticipate.
If you’re not familiar with how to safely move items, it can be easy to pull a muscle. It’s best to leave this to professionals since the last thing you want to add to the stress of a move is an injury.
Insure Your Possessions
No matter how careful you are, accidents do happen. A vehicle collision could damage possessions between your old home and your new one. A valuable item could also be stolen during transportation.
When you use a moving company, your items will be insured. This means that if an item is lost, stolen, or damaged, you will be able to recoup your loss.
In some cases, you will have to move out of your current home before your new home is ready to move into. Perhaps you have a lease that ended, and you haven’t found a new apartment yet. Or maybe you got a great deal selling your current home, and you are still searching for the right new home.
With a moving company, you will be able to securely store your possessions until your new home is ready to move into. Movers will pack up your current home, and then, when you are ready to move into your new home, will bring your items out of storage to your new home.
