As someone who has moved at least once every 3-4 years, I can say I am somewhat of an expert at moving. What I can also say is that I absolutely hate moving. It never gets easier. Ever. You may get better at it, you learn some tricks to make things easier, but in the end…it’s still dreadful.
Moving is STRESSFUL. When you are younger, think college days, going from dorm room to your first shared apartment with a roommate, to another shared apartment with roommates because the said first roommate left dishes in the sink, moving doesn’t seem too bad.
Your family members help out, or you bribe your friends with some beer and pizza and it’s a party! Moving when younger is almost, dare I say it, fun! But my college days are long gone and so is the strength in my friends, as well as my lower back. Lifting a gallon of milk is a struggle some days, and now I have to worry about a whole couch?
Now that I am older, I am grateful I can hire movers. I get to enjoy that pizza and beer without the fear of breaking my back. I can make my cheerleading dreams come true and support a team of professional movers from the sidelines. Do you think Amazon has some pompoms I can order? You know, just in case!
Now you might think, what could possibly be worse than moving? Packing! As much as I hate moving, I loathe packing. The idea of packing up my whole house doesn’t spark any joy whatsoever. All of the boxes, tripping over said boxes, packing materials, shrink wrap, tape – how is it that I still don’t know how to properly use tape? Is there a tape course I can take? It gives me a headache just thinking about it!
Should you hire professional movers?
Hiring professional movers is the smart way to go, but where to start?
The first time I hired movers was an experience, to say the least. I didn’t know about reviews, ratings, or reputations. That being said, my first piece of advice when hiring movers is to research many companies, compare their services, and read the reviews!
