Self-Moving Mistakes: Why People Go with Professionals
There are several people who are under the impression where professional movers simply cost too much to use. However, that is not the case. And when you take into consideration these self-moving mistakes, that ultimately cost the person time and money, going with a professional mover is the best option.
Mistake 1: Thinking a rented truck is no big deal
Those who move on their own, think that renting a larger moving truck is easy. Yes, it may be easy to rent. However, driving this is another case. Many of those who have reportedly used these trucks found that driving these to their new location was harder than what they thought. There were even a few tales of a person running into their new garage door, over a mailbox and into their own vehicles.
Mistake 2: Thinking your friends are going to help with a move
While your friends may say that they will help, you may find that their idea of help is helping to load a few boxes and then be on their way. Too many people have learned this the hard way, and ended up having to do everything on their own. This results in more injuries to the person, and more damage to your personal belongings, since there are not enough people to help with the move.
Mistake 3: Not anchoring your belongings while moving
Rookie movers often think that gravity will keep those items in the back of their truck. However, how many people have seen those on the side of the interstate picking up boxes that have blown out of the beds of these trucks? Chances are, you have seen it more than once. So why risk it?
Professional movers are professional for a reason. They know the best methods for securing your items, know how to handle taking all your belongings in one trip and can move those larger items with ease. While you may feel that you can do this move cheaper on your way, weigh the costs of actually doing this all on your own. Those who self-move often wish that they had used professionals in the end.
