When to Hire Movers?

One of the things to think about when you are planning to move to a new home is whether to hire movers. There are going to be quite a few things to consider, one of those is whether your budget allows you to pay for professional movers. Many people try to avoid shelling out extra to pay for movers by doing the move themselves. But there are circumstances wherein hiring movers is the only option.

Read below to know when it is a good time to hire movers for your upcoming home move.

You are moving long-distance

When you are going to move long-distance, you need to know that it is a lot difficult than moving just across the city. You will have to handle not just the packing of your belongings and loading them to your moving truck, you will also need to drive it all the way to your destination. This is definitely exhausting, plus the amount of time that will be spent during the transit is just not practical.

Hiring a moving company is your best bet. You won’t have to worry about loading your belongings to the truck because you have professionals to do it securely and safely. The transit of your belongings from your old home to your new home will be handled safely and efficiently as well.

You have bulky and heavy items

It’s easy to move by yourself if you don’t have bulky furniture and appliances to move such as a couch, mattress, freezer, etc. But if you do, hiring furniture movers is a wise thing to do. You may have friends or family members to help you out on your DIY move, but you may risk damaging some of your items if you don’t have enough knowledge on how to properly and safely move heavy items. Worst, you also put yourself at risk of potential moving injuries. Remember when Ross bought a couch and decided to move it with the help of Rachel and Chandler, instead of paying a delivery fee? You don’t want your precious couch to end up as Ross’s couch did. You also don’t want to suffer the same fate as Ross, Rachel and Chandler, do you?

With the help of reliable movers, you can ensure a safer move of your bulky and heavy items. They have enough knowledge and experience, plus they have the right equipment to do the job.

You have speciality items

Bulky and heavy items are difficult to move, but you know what’s more difficult to move? Speciality items like pieces of art and antiques, pool tables, chandeliers, and pianos. If you own one of these items, you must know that moving such is quite complex than the other items you own. These items need special care. Specialized packing materials and techniques are needed to ensure their safety.

Moving companies can best provide what are needed to ensure the safe moving of your speciality items. Professional movers have equipment and materials to pack and move the items safely, and most importantly, they are experienced and knowledgeable in this field. With their expertise, you don’t have to worry about damaging any of your speciality items.

You don’t have anyone to help you

Moving is not a task that you can do alone. You will need extra pair of hands to help do this taxing task. If you don’t have any friends or family to help you out because they may be busy, live far away, or not physically capable of helping you, then calling the help of moving professionals is your best choice.  

Your employer will provide a relocation allowance

When you’re moving due to a new job, chances are, your new employer will offer you a relocation allowance that will cover relocation-related expenses, including temporary living expenses, cost of hiring movers, travel expenses, and even home-hunting. In this case, consider yourself lucky, and take full advantage of this benefit. There’s no reason why you should not hire professional movers to help you relocate.

You’re lacking time to plan

Moving to a new home requires a lot of time. The best way is to prepare at least two months in advance. This way, you have plenty of time to plan and organize your move. However, not all have the time to prepare in advance. There are instances wherein you may need to move on short notice, it may be due to employment, or even relationship change. In this case, you don’t have the leisure of planning your move well and arranging the logistics of moving your belongings to your new home. Getting Auckland movers or Wellington movers on board is the best way to tackle a time constraint move. Having reliable movers to do the job will lighten your burden, figuratively and literally. You don’t need to do the backbreaking tasks of moving heavy boxes and items, and you’ll have more time to tackle your other moving tasks.

If you are in a hurry of hiring movers in NZ, then it’s best you submit a request on Wise Move to gather competitive quotes you can choose from. As soon as you submit your request, Wise Move will notify various moving companies, furniture movers, a man with van services, piano movers, and other speciality movers around your area, it doesn’t matter where you are in NZ. Auckland movers, Wellington movers, Christchurch movers and movers all over NZ will come to your aid in making your move as easy and stress-free as possible.
