There are few events in life that are quite as stressful and exhausting as moving! Am I right? That is why so many people turn to professional moving companies to relieve them of a large portion of the work. Yet, many people fear that they will endure something from those horror stories about movers breaking or stealing or causing damage. Believe me, I get those reservations! It is that dilemma that has brought me to deliver today’s post to help you decide whether or not you should hire a professional moving company to handle your move to Mount Pleasant. I hope this will help you make a decision with ease and that it brings you peace of mind.
Do You Have The Budget For Professional Movers?
One of the major reasons that people resist hiring the pros is that they think it will cost them an arm and a leg. Of course, just like with anything there are bargain basement rate movers and there are those that will indeed charge you an arm and a leg. Rates are also impacted by how long you will need the movers for and the distance that you will be moving.
According to MovingBuddah.com, it will run you between $300-$1,500 for a local move, depending on how much stuff you have. Moving to a nearby state or other comparable long distance moves will be closer to $2,400-$5,000 on average. Again, that depends on the size of your move. Moving cross-country will be significantly steeper thought so I suggest you collect a few quotes.
Do You Have Enough Free Time To Move Yourself?
Let’s be honest, not all of us have the extra time on our hands to do all of the packing, loading, unloading, and unpacking in a reasonable amount of time. Let’s assume you purchase a home in Mount Pleasant and go under contract today. On average, you will be closing in just 30 days. Assuming you’re like most people and want to move in right away, that gives you just a month to handle all of that moving in addition to the work you will have to do for the closing process, as well as, all of your regular responsibilities like work and family. So it is important to be honest with yourself about how much you can handle so you don’t become a miserable person during what should be a very happy time.
Is It Safe For You To Do The Heavy Lifting?
Finally, a lot of people don’t think about it but it isn’t always safe to move yourself. Depending on your age and medical history, is it really smart for you to be lifting furniture and other heavy items? What risk do you stand of getting hurt or worsening an existing injury? Those hospital and doctor bills could quickly exceed that of hiring professional movers.
