Mishaps that can be avoided by hiring movers

Apr 13, 2016

Moving is No. 3 on most lists of life's stressful events, according to Health Status. It's up there with marriage and divorce. Even if you're incredibly excited about your corporate relocation, there's still a lot of packing and unpacking to do. When it comes to moving, you might think that doing things yourself is the best way to ensure your items are safely taken out of your old home and placed in your new one. However, this isn't always the case. Here are some mishaps that can be avoided by hiring movers:

An injury

Let's face it: No matter how many times you've changed houses, you are not a professional mover. If you haven't been trained in how to lift and move items properly, you can hurt yourself badly. Heavy lifting can lead to back strain and other health-related issues. The last thing you want is to have to take time off work because you injured yourself while moving your sofa.

Sometimes, it just comes down to having the right equipment. Professional movers size your belongings to ensure they have the right hand tools to move them. That way, you can kick back and relax, instead of potentially ending up the hospital while moving a king-sized bed.

Items breaking

Regardless of much bubble wrap you order, if you try and move things yourself, it's likely that items are going to break. By hiring a moving company, you'll remove the stress of transporting your valuables from one place to another, safely. You don't want to christen your new home by breaking your television the moment you step through the door. Leave it in the hands of a professional.

Of course, accidents do happen. But Atlas Van Lines offers various coverage packages that insure your goods against damage. 

Loss of time

You are going to want to explore the new city you call home. Sure, you'll inevitably have to unpack, but you don't want that to consume all of your free time. With a professional mover, all you have to do is show up. He or she will load and unload everything in an efficient manner, allowing you to focus on more important tasks, like meeting co-workers or exploring your new neighborhood. 

Frustration

Planning a move is difficult enough. Professional movers know all the ins and outs that comes with moving day. They know the best ways to place an item in a truck and the fastest roads to get your new home. Knowing that your things are in the capable and trustworthy hands of a professional moving company will help eliminate some of the stress that puts moving No. 3 on the most-stressful-life-events list. With Atlas Van Lines, it might not even make it on your stress list at all.
