Moving is something a lot of us just want to get done and over with. Before we even finish packing, we’re thinking about unpacking. And therein lies the problem; the sense of urgency we feel to get the actual moving part past us has led to countless scenarios in which we accidentally destroy our own belongings, leave too many loose ends, or even end up injured. Here’s why a professional moving company is your safest bet.
Your big screen TV has a much greater chance of surviving a move when dollies, ramps, and/or jacks are employed by professionals. The same goes for your piano, couch, and floor-length mirrors.
Professional movers also come equipped with tools they use to quickly disassemble furniture for safer packing and travel. They’ll also use these tools to reassemble your furniture when it reaches your new home. With everything else on your plate, is this something you have time to do efficiently?
A lot of property damage doesn’t occur because of a definable accident. In fact, many things break because they were simply packed incorrectly. Although the box was never dropped, the consistent motion of the trip seemed to be enough to jostle things until they broke.
Many pro movers also offer a packing service, so this is never a concern again. They’ll ensure that every single delicate item is wrapped and secured in a manner that greatly increases its chances of making it to your new location unscathed. Again, this is something many people in the midst of a move don’t have time to do properly.
And even if your movers don’t pack your boxes, they know how to pack a truck. They’ll load your things and configure them in ways that will prevent them from slipping, sliding, and falling over.
Because moving is a very temporary event, more often than not we don’t buy insurance for it. This means that most things we lose are just that: a loss whose associated cost we have to eat. Meanwhile, professional movers in Toronto take your trust in them very seriously.
Many companies will offer options on the amount of liability involved with your move. While this isn’t technically considered insurance, the value of your belongings can be covered in case of an accident. This is one less thing to worry about!
- Professional Transport
Maybe you just need your stuff removed during a remodel, you’re moving a long distance, or your belongings will need to be stored for a short period prior to moving in. No matter how long or rough the road will be, professional movers know how to store and transport everything you own.
From providing clean, climate-controlled storage to utilizing long-haul containers, movers are very involved in strategizing the safest way to get your stuff back to you.
When you move, you lose. But you don’t have to when you hire the right people for the job. Choose a mover that treats your belongings as they would their own, with the added benefits of the right tools, professional technique, good coverage, and smooth travel.
