Moving in and out of a home is always a stressful event. No matter how much you plan, it always takes longer than it should. But if you hire professional movers, you can greatly improve the experience. Whether you're moving to the other side of Berks County, or across the country, here are 4 reasons to use professional movers the next time you move.


No matter how you slice it, moving can potentially lead to injury. If you use professional movers, you'll be protecting yourself from injury.  Professionals know all the tricks to staying safe and know their limits. Many times when we move, we push ourselves too far, thinking we need to get the job done no matter what. 

Not only can you aggravate a pre-existing injury, but you can acquire new injuries which can linger and become chronic. Strained backs and broken fingers or toes are just a few of the most common injuries people get while moving. Hiring professional movers will nearly eliminate the likelihood of getting these types of injuries.

Save Time

Saving time is also another obvious advantage of professional movers. Movers commonly have large enough trucks that the process of moving is usually completed in one trip. Without a large enough truck, you may have to make several trip. And if you have a deadline to move out, the efficiency of the movers will ensure you get out by that time. If planning ahead isn’t your thing, invest in professional movers for a day and rest easy knowing time won’t be an issue.

(Potentially) Save Money

You might think that hiring professional movers is far more expensive than doing it all yourself. But if you add up all the costs of moving yourself and compare it with hiring help, you might find out they come out even. Professional movers have an hourly rate and don’t require any supervision. So, rather than taking off work and moving yourself, you can have them move while you work and bring in a paycheck, resulting in a lower overall cost.

Also, professionals have the equipment necessary for moving, which you probably don't have. Renting dollies or trucks can cost a lot, and it isn’t always a given that everything will work.

Ease of Mind

Moving isn’t just stressful because of the physical moving, but the entire process altogether. Coordinating friends to help you, dealing with busy traffic, and wasting tens of minutes trying to fit furniture through a door all add up to one of the most stressful events a human can go through. Professional movers help with so much more than just moving heavy objects. They are the ones who coordinate with each other, deal with traffic and the troubles of fitting furniture. They also, almost always, have insurance policies which protect your items in case they get damaged, something that isn’t the case when you move by yourself. 

In the end, hiring pros to help you move makes sense. It saves you time, stress, and possibly even money.
