Many people wonder if hiring a moving company is worth it? As the owner of Professional Moving I think that it is worth it. But you must realize that I am biased in my opinion. But it is a good question: Is hiring a moving company worth it? So I set off to find a really good answer.
In my search I came across this very question on a polling website called Hundreds of Heads. Cool name, huh? They had a poll regarding if moving companies were worth it. here are the results:
- Yes 56.3%
- No 25%
- No Difference 18.8%
So more than half believe hiring a moving company is worth it.
Without a doubt there have been many people that have been scammed or have had a horrible moving experience. So I read a good 50 or so of those reports and I surveyed them to set if they used a moving company again...Guess what? My little informal survey said yes they did use moving compnies again. Close to 75% used moving companies again. So even though they had a bad experience they still thought hiring a moving company was worth it.
So what makes hiring a moving company worth it?
Very good question, and I for one, think it is about time that that question was answered:
- Moving companies save you time.
- They save you money.
- They ease the stress of moving.
- They save you from injury.
- They prevent damage to your home and belongings.
- They haul your household goods so you don't have to.
- They are professionals with years of experience.
- They are stronger and physically fit.
These are just some of the reasons that make hiring a moving company worth it. Now I could go through each and every one of those points and write an entire article on why those points are true, but I am not going to now...maybe later.
Moving companies provide a service and 95% of the time that service would be a good investment. Of course there will be that rarity where you may have a bad experience, unfortunately that happens, but if you research the companies first and follow the advice here in this blog you won't have a bad experience and you'll be saying that hiring a moving company was worth it.
