Moving and Storage Tips for Large Families

While I am the stay-at-home mother of six beautiful children, my husband works in a field that requires us to move frequently. The first time we had to move, it was just the two of us, and while it seemed stressful at the time, that ended up being the "easy" move! As our family has grown, the moving process has become much more time-intensive, and I learned that if I don't create a moving "to-do" list and go through it step by step, I forget to get important things done before we move. I know there are other families of all sizes out there facing moves soon, so I thought I would make a blog to share my moving and storage tips with everyone who needs them. Come back often, especially if you are moving in the near future!

5 Reasons To Hire Professional Moving Services

Liam Morales

If you are planning a move, it's always best to consider the help of professional movers, especially if you are older or have any kind of health complications. Here are five reasons why:

  1. Peace of Mind: Full service professional movers will be able to pack your things in an organized fashion and bring them to your new home perfectly stacked in the rooms in which they belong. This ensures that you have no worries about your items getting to exactly where they need to be. 
  2. It's Fast: When you are moving to a new home, the process can be quite overwhelming and slow if you don't have the right help. Since you will want to get settled into your new life quickly, it's best to hire professional movers because the job will be done fast. 
  3. You Won't Have Heavy Lifting: This is an important thing to take note of if you have a health condition or you are elderly. Lifting boxes is extremely dangerous if you do not have the strength for it. Professional movers have experience doing this and they have the strength as well, which is why they work in this business. 
  4. Protects Your Items: Another reason to consider professional moving help is that it will keep your belongings safe. This is because, with their experience, professional movers know how to safely transport your belongings and move them without dropping or damaging them. When you have friends help you with moving, they don't have the experience to be sure that your items stay safe in this way. On top of this, most professional movers offer insurance, which means that if your items are damaged, you are compensated for replacement or repairs that are needed. 
  5. You Don't Have Time: If you work full time, have kids, and have to attend to other responsibilities, then you just won't have time to handle the move on your own. Not having to do any of the work when it comes to your move, you can focus on getting your family settled in and you also don't have to worry about the stress of the move taking away from your motivation you need to have at work and when attending your other responsibilities. 

When you consider these five reasons to hire professional moving services, you can see why the cost of their services is well worth it in the end. You can quickly settle into your new life without the stress of it taking away from your ability to settle in at ease.
