Hiring A Professional Mover | What To Expect

Hiring a professional mover doesn’t have to be an expensive or difficult process.

In fact, it shouldn’t be. A good moving company should have all their bases covered, which includes being well-organized, having proper insurance, moving supplies and be able to handle difficult-to-move items. Here’s what type of services you should expect when you hire a mover:

Organization

Hiring a moving company is a great way to simplify your move by keeping everything, from costs to services, in one place. You won’t have to worry about renting a truck, finding boxes, or even investing your own time and labor if you don’t want to.  

Insurance

One of the biggest advantages of hiring a professional mover is that all your belongings are covered by insurance during the moving process. Every mover must carry insurance and it should come standard as part of the overall price. (In some cases–mainly with rare or high value items–additional insurance can be purchased.)

Supplies

If you don’t like the idea of hunting all over town for the supplies you’ll need to move, hiring a professional might be for you. Things like boxes, tape, furniture skids & covers, hand trucks, and crating services are all things that a good professional moving company will take care of for you.

Oversize Items

Whether moving something that is large or just too heavy to move yourself, a professional moving company can be tremendously helpful if you find yourself in this situation. Moving items like hot tubs, safes and pool tables can require special equipment, which a professional mover will have access to. Professional movers will also have access to the best deals on auto transport companies such as A-1 Auto Transport
