Don’t Ask Friends or Family to Help You Move – Here’s Why!

It may seem like asking friends or family is the easier option, but there are several good reasons why hiring a professional company is the overall better choice to move all your belongings into your new home. For the sake of your sanity, for the safety of your friends and your belongings, and to keep your relationships intact, please look at why you should be hiring professionals to help you move.

First – Let’s be really honest here; no one wants to help someone move. Your family and friends will say yes . . . but by no means are they excited about this opportunity. Some may agree, only to “forget” or have something “come up” on moving day and bail at the last minute. Because you are asking friends to help, you may have to work around their schedule, not yours. Some of your crew may show up late or leave before you have finished. Volunteers are great, but they are not likely to get your move done as quickly or as efficiently as it could be done. All of that can add extra stress to an already challenging situation! When you hire moving professionals, you can rely on them to show up, to be there for the entirety of your move, and to get the job done right.

Second – Moving is more than just heavy lifting. Like all professional trades, our skilled movers combine experience, techniques, and trade secrets in the art of moving. Unless your family members have worked in this industry, they are not likely to know moving’s best practices that make a move go smoothly. Just the proper techniques for how to lift heavy items can mean whatever money you saved on your move is being spent at the Chiropractor! At MiniMoves, we are professionals at packing and moving your items safely and efficiently. We know how to load, move, unload, and arrange your furniture in a safe and efficient manner that protects your items, your home, and eliminates the risk of your family or friends getting injured while helping you move.

Lastly – Moving is one of life’s most stressful events and can create an environment where conflicts over little things can become a big deal, especially when it’s a real-time debate with someone who really didn’t want to be there in the first place about how the sofa will or won’t fit through the doorway. By hiring professionals, you eliminate the risk of bickering with loved ones over silly disagreements or frustrations.

Maybe the best reason is this; if you ask someone to help you move, they may return the favor by asking you to help them when it comes time for them to move. If you do not want to have to help a friend move, don’t ask your friends to help you. Find a great company like MiniMoves and then share your experience to guide them to a better way to move. They will admire your wise advice!
