Preparing for a Big Move? 3 Reasons You Should Hire a Professional Mover

November 29, 2022

You’re driving yourself crazy getting ready for the big move. You’ve got dates to plan, boxes to pack, and forms to fill out. You’ve got rentals to arrange, valuables to worry about, and unpacking to plan. You’re at your wit’s end, really.

Of course you’d like to take care of the whole process yourself. You’ve got a friend who had a bad experience with a moving company, and you’re really not sure it’s worth the cost. Anyways, you’re an independent sort, and you’d really rather do it yourself anyways, am I right?

Those are all good points. Believe me, I understand where you’re coming from. But if you’re even considering hiring some movers to help you out, give me just a couple minutes of your time. I’ve got some things to tell you that should help you clear things up.

Fragile Antiques & Valuables

Now, do me a little favor: I’d like you to imagine the most precious items you own.

Maybe it’s a set of china Grandpa gave to Grandma the day he came home from World War II.

Or maybe it’s a sparkling mirror in an ornate wooden frame that’s been in the family since the 1800s.

It can even that old piano you can still remember learning to play “Chopsticks” on.

Whatever it is, I want you to imagine it clearly. If it’s in the room right now, you might even want to look at it. Just make sure you’ve got a clear image of it in your mind.

What if you went through all the trouble of packing your valuables and getting them ready to go, and when you unpack them you find they’ve been smashed? No more china, no more mirror. The piano will never play “Chopsticks” again.

Tragedies like this happen all the time in the moving process. That’s why Puget Sound Moving & Storage offers specialized antique moving services. With our experience and dedicated procedures, we ensure the safety of your valuables. Don’t let your precious fragile items come to harm. They’re worth too much for that.

Storage Options

Now let’s say you’re ready to move out, but not ready to move in yet. Maybe you’re moving across country and you haven’t settled on a new place yet. Or maybe you’re moving into a smaller place and you don’t want to move all your belongings in at once.

Whatever the reason, you’re going to need a storage service to hold all your belongings while you get yourself settled in.

Of course, you could go ahead and find a place on your own, on top of all the responsibilities you’re taking care of with moving. You could do that. Sure, it’d be a bother, but you could do it.

Or you could have the peace of mind that comes with knowing the very same people who helped you move are keeping your belongings safe in their storage facility.

That’s what the storage in Puget Sound Moving & Storage is all about. With us, you’ve got the flexibility of deciding when to have your belongings moved in. We’ll keep them safe and secure while you’re taking care of everything else.

Personal Cost & Hassle

Last but not least, the cost might be one of the big reasons you’d want to move on your own. Why spend all that money to get a professional when you can do almost as good a job on your own?

It’s a fair question. If I were in your shoes, I can imagine myself wondering the very same thing.

Maybe you’re confident you can get your valuables there in one piece. Maybe you know exactly where you want everything to go. But have you thought about the costs involved in moving on your own?

You’ve got to stock up on a whole house’s worth of moving equipment. Boxes. Tape. Packing tools.

What you don’t buy, you’ll have to rent. Moving vans. Dollies. You name it.

Let’s say you’re planning a long-distance move. How much are you spending on gas?

Who’s going to be there helping you move? A trusted group of professionals? Or a handful of friends who probably talk more than they help and who probably didn’t even show up on time?

When you add up all those costs, you have to wonder: how much are you really saving? And when you consider how much time and hassle you’ll be facing if you move yourself, let me ask you this: isn’t your time worth more than that?

Recap: Peace of Mind

With a professional company like Puget Sound Moving & Storage, you don’t have to worry about any of that. You can rest easy knowing that all your belongings are well-taken care of.
