While it may be cheaper to move yourself, it can be more hazardous to not only yourself, but your home and belongings too. Read today’s blog from Flannery’s Handymen on why it is more beneficial to hire a professional when it comes to moving!
If you’re unsure of how to move certain types of furniture of boxes, moving on your own can put a serious strain on your body. Because you’re not a professional, your body isn’t used to moving this way and it can feel drained and tired as a result. It can also result in back or knee injuries if you aren’t careful!
For most possessions, there is a certain way they should be packed to avoid any damage. For example, your dishware should be wrapped and packed upright and you should never lay your plasma TV down. If you’re uncertain of how things need to be packed, you can do more damage than good.
Damage to Your Home
Depending on the type of flooring you have, you may need specific protection when it comes to moving your furniture. A professional moving company will have this material that allows furniture and dollies to easily move about. You don’t want to be left without a security deposit because you damaged your home as you were moving out!
Along with your home, moving on your own can cause damage to your car or truck. You can be left with scrapes on the outside and rips in your upholstery if you are not careful.
While it may seem more beneficial to move on your own, you should really compare the pros and cons before you make your decision.
