Reasons to Hire a Long Distance Moving Company

Friday, June 03, 2022

Big moves mean big headaches, no matter how exciting the life-changing event can be. With all of the logistics of moving your belongings across the country, it's no surprise that moves are listed as one of the most stressful life events there could ever be. 

However, life-changing, as it is, moving, is part of life and typically attached to a positive thing. Anything from a new job, moving closer to family, or just because you need a change of scenery, moving is not all bad. 


Reasons to Hire a Long Distance Moving Company

One way to make moving less stressful to the extent that it can be an enjoyable experience is hiring a long-distance moving company. Their job is to make things easier, and with professional packing and quality customer service, that can go a long way regardless of price.

Here are a few reasons why you should move with the assistance of long-distance movers.

1. Help!

With all the stressors of finding a new place to live or sending out resumes, the actual moving process can often be forgotten about until the last minute. Many moves are made out of the back of a friend's pickup or a cheap rental trailer that isn't quite big enough to fit all of your things.

It may be a right of passage, but moving a bed and dresser out of your dorm is way different than moving an entire house full of your (and your potential family’s) belongings across the country.

This calls for a helping hand, and with a professional moving company, that is what you get. From packing, loading, transporting, unloading, and finally unpacking your things, they've got you covered. 

This allows taking a breath and handling more important things, such as securing your new home or spending time getting to know the area. Letting go of the burden of transporting your belongings is worth every penny for those reasons alone.

2. Insurance Protection

Damaged belongings happen from time to time during a move, especially when you are underprepared to move large pieces of furniture or appliances. By utilizing a long-distance moving company, you get the benefit of the insurance that they carry. If they drop your couch or damage a mirror, it will be covered by an insurance policy. 

Because professional movers are good at what they do, the likelihood of them damaging your precious belongings is low;  but if they do, you can rest assured that they are insured.

3. Cost Savings

Because people believe it will be substantially less expensive to move without professional assistance, many consumers attempt to avoid hiring movers. Even while moving first seems to be more affordable, when you consider all the little aspects you could find otherwise.

In the case that you DIY your long-distance move, you likely are renting a truck for far too many days and paying for gas for multiple vehicles. In the example of a cross-country move, you are likely spending money on hotels and dining out. All of this adds up and can quickly cost more than simply hiring a moving company to take care of things efficiently.

4. Travel Arrangements Are Easier

If you have never driven a moving truck, navigating the interstate can potentially be the most stressful part of moving. They are large and clunky and are covered up with blind spots. Honestly, they are unsafe for those that are inexperienced in driving them.

With that in mind, professional moving companies have employees that drive large trucks every day of the week. They know what it takes to get your belongings across the country safely and can drive moving trucks like its second nature. 

Also, when using a moving company, your travel arrangements can be simplified down to just getting to your destination. Whether you are flying to your new home and shipping your car or taking an adventurous road trip across the country, you no longer have to worry about your belongings dragging you down.

At the end of the day, you can simplify moving by hiring a long-distance moving company. They are the experts and are there to take the burden and stress off of you and your family so that you can focus on what is important. Their job is to make your life less stressful, and because of that, it's a worthy investment.
