Moving can be a real strain on you and your back. Aside from the stress of packing and logistics, heavy lifting can be very bad for you. Here are three reasons you should leave the heavy lifting to the professionals when you move.
You risk being injured when you attempt to do it yourself. Professional movers have the equipment, training, and manpower to move your heavy furniture, like sofas, chairs, dressers, china cabinets, and desks, without getting hurt. With a moving company handling the physical work, you are spared the agony of pulled muscles, strains and sprains, pinched nerves, and broken bones, so let the movers lug your couch down into and back out of the moving truck.
Often our heaviest furniture is also the most expensive. Dropping a large piece of furniture such as a desk or an armoire can do more than injure you—it can cost a lot of money. Ask your moving company about valuation protection and insurance.
It always takes longer than you think to do something yourself. Moving is the same way—you anticipate that loading your furniture will take a few hours and then unloading at your new place will take a few more hours, but after an entire day of loading, you’ll wonder what you have gotten yourself into. Letting the pros move you ensures that things happen on time, every time.

You may have decided to hire a moving crew to help you with your long distance move, but now it’s time to choose a moving company that can move your goods safely and promptly. Here are a few features and services you should always look for in movers that can help you identify whether or not you should hire them.
- Make sure that the moving crew inspects your house before giving you an estimate. Looking at your goods before the move will give the crew a good idea of the time and money necessary to move your belongings.
- Always check how much liability the moving crew will assume for damaged goods. According to the Southwest Movers Association, most movers will assume liability of $0.60 per pound per article. If you think that certain goods are more valuable than that, make sure to talk to your moving company.
- Make sure that the mover has insurance and is licensed. Licensed movers have higher standards than unlicensed movers. Unlicensed movers may commit moving fraud and try to keep your goods until you pay them more money. Licensed movers promise a higher quality of service.
- Opt for quality over price. Some moving companies are cheaper, but they may also deliver your goods damaged, or they may not be able to work with your schedule. Some moving companies are more expensive, but they may deliver your goods on time and undamaged.
