Life's Changes can be Stressful: Remember to Delegate Tasks to Keep Things Moving Smoothly
Life can be stressful at the best of times, add moving onto that and it can get downright frantic. While most people only consider the physical aspects of packing (boxing up items, carrying them, etc.), there’s a serious mental toll that comes with moving as well. There’s changing your address, organizing the move of utilities, and purging your unwanted items, as well as a slew of minutiae that you may not have considered when you first started planning your move.
To keep the stress to manageable levels, you have to learn to delegate tasks and sometimes that means delegating to those who are professionals. Many people think that moving yourself is a quick way to save a buck, but moving with the help of friends or family instead of professionals can quickly turn more stressful than just shelling out the cash for the pros.
Here are some of the ways movers can help you save in the long run:
Hiring movers can save your back
Professional movers are trained to properly lift and maneuver heavy loads, and you’re probably not. For this reason, you may think you’re saving money but you may not feel that way once you see the bills your chiropractor will be handing you when you lift that stove using just your back.
Hiring movers will stop your friends from hating you
I know, they offered, but let’s be honest: no one wants to help you move.
Spending a Saturday morning schlepping your buddy’s stuff from one place to the other is something done out of love and obligation, but never something you would opt to do for fun. Just like you don’t really want to move anyone, they don’t really want to move you.
By hiring movers, you can rest assured that your friends won’t wish they never met you.
Hiring movers will let you focus on other important aspects of moving day
Getting the stuff into the house is only one part of moving day. There’s cleaning and organizing and unpacking. There’s getting the essentials in place and making sure the utilities are hooked up and cleaning the other home. In fact, moving day has a lot of stuff on the go outside of just the physical move. Hiring Freehold movers will allow you to have time to focus on these incidentals without worrying that your U-Haul is blocking the neighbors’ driveway.
Hiring movers means hiring the right equipment
While plenty of people see moving as something anyone could do, there’s actually a lot of specialized equipment that helps facilitate a move. From boxes and tape to dollies and tie down straps, you may be surprised at the amount of gear your moving company will show up with.
If you’re not hiring movers, you will most likely still want this stuff on hand to make sure fragile items don’t fall over or that heavier items don’t crash together. In this way, you’ll end up having to spend a surprising amount of money to purchase items you will most likely never use again.
