Planning to move to a new home isn’t easy or something that most residents in Chicago want to do. However, it may be a necessity if you got a new job, had a life-changing event, or because you want to live in a smaller/large space. While it can be done alone, most people prefer to hire a moving and storage company in Chicago because they take most of the hassles out of moving.
Less Expensive to Hire a Pro
While it doesn’t seem like it at first, it can be cheaper to hire someone than to do it all yourself. The goal here is to ensure that you’re comparing costs the right way. Make sure that each company you consider offers the same things. While they may all claim to be full-service or inclusive, they may not offer the same services.
It’s also important that you determine how much it will cost you to do it all yourself. You’ll have to rent a moving truck and pay for the gas you use, take time to load/unload items, get insurance for the truck, purchase and setup packing supplies, get appropriate moving equipment (furniture pads, dollies, etc.) and may require treatment from a chiropractor or hospital if you injure yourself.
Professional movers usually include all the things mentioned earlier as part of the package or cost. Plus, they know how to stay safe so that they don’t get injured.
No Familial Issues
Recruiting friends and family can seem like a good idea, but they may come to resent you, especially if they get hurt. It’s best to hire a professional who has a team to help them do everything.
