Why You Should Hire Professional Movers When Relocating
Wondering if you should hire a moving company?
My husband and I have moved quite a few times and, until recently, we have always done most of the work ourselves (with some help from family and friends on moving day).
The last couple times, however, would not have been possible without professional movers.
When you have a toddler and an infant, and you don’t have family nearby, you need all the help you can get — especially when relocating to a different state.
This is just one of the reasons why we hired professional movers to get the job done, but there are a LOT more benefits to hiring a moving company to help you with your move.
If you’re on the fence about whether or not to hire professional movers, reference the list below for ten reasons to hire a moving company.

Top 10 reasons to hire a moving company
1. Professional movers save you time
You wouldn’t believe how fast and efficient they are! When we moved to Minnesota from Iowa, a crew of three guys packed up everything in our home and loaded it all onto a trailer in less than two days. That would have taken us at least twice as long to do ourselves. Hiring a moving company meant that I was able to take care of my kids while the professionals worked.
2. Hiring a moving company reduces stress
Moving is stressful enough. But when you hire a moving company, you have one less thing on your plate.
3. Your back will thank you
Moving is physically demanding. I was pregnant during our previous move (across town) and having a crew of movers to carry our belongings was a necessity. When you hire a moving company, the professionals will do all the heavy lifting for you.
4. Your belongings will be safe from damage
Worried about your belongings getting scratched or tossed around in the trailer? Professionals know how to safely transport items to reduce the risk of damage. They carry supplies such as blankets and stretch wrap to keep your things safe.
5. They account for every single item
Moving companies use a professional inventory process to ensure that nothing gets lost. They are trained to communicate with their customers during the moving process to make sure that everything is accounted for.
6. Professional moving companies are reliable
How many times have you had to beg your friends and family to help you move again? And how many times have they flaked at the last minute? When you hire a moving company, you won’t have to bug your friends and family for help, and you know the job will get done.
7. You save money on tools and supplies
I don’t know about you, but it seems like we always have to go out and buy something while we’re in the middle of moving. The great news is that professional movers already have all the necessary tools with them, saving you a last-minute trip to the store.
8. There’s no guessing on the trailer size
Have you ever rented a moving truck, only to find out that it was too small for all of your belongings? Professional movers know how to determine the size truck you need, so it’s one less thing on your plate.
9. You won’t have to play real-life tetris
Even with the correct trailer size, getting everything to fit just right (without wasting space) can be tricky. Professional movers do it all the time, though, so it’s much easier for them to accomplish.
10. You won’t regret it
After all, can you put a price tag on your sanity?

I would love to hire movers! I like all your reason’s!
I love your format on this post. It matched my, “get the information and get out” mode of operation.
This is a very concise list, thank you. I’m trying to convince myself that it’s ok to let someone else pack my stuff when I eventually move.
I honestly didn’t have any problem letting other people pack my things (it helped that I packed up the most important things beforehand and had them ready to load into my vehicle). I know it would be really hard for some people, though!
Great tips! And I love that you recommend a specific moving company. Wish they were closer to PA, haha. We may be moving soon, and I am dreading it.
We have only moved a few times, thank goodness. The last time I was pregnant, not fun!! You pointed out great reasons to hire a moving company.
I was pregnant during one of our moves, and I could never have helped carry furniture or bigger things — plus, my husband was dealing with some physical pain at the time so he couldn’t do much either. Having movers was a lifesaver!
Yes on the moving company! I know there are horror stories out there but if you look at reviews and do your homework the convenience is amazing!
Yes, you definitely want to make sure they are a reputable company.
I wish we could’ve hired someone last year! Moving with 4 kids is no easy task!
Agreed, it’s SO much harder with kids!
We have moved so many times and have never used a moving company. We’re planning on moving next year and I am determined to hire a moving company this time.
I hope you do! It’s such a relief having someone else take care of most of the physical work.
I’ve never used a moving company, but I swore last time was the last time I’d do it without!!
It’s just so exhausting to do it yourself, even if you have friends and family to help. When you hire movers, you really don’t have to do any heavy lifting at all.
This is the ONLY reason I will move again– with the help of a moving company! For all the reasons you listed 🙂 Thanks for sharing.
This is a great list! I love that you provided a concise list and specifically on it helps with keeping you sane.
I’ve moved many times in life and have always done it myself with help from family. Now that I’m 60, I must hire help and did so last year. Great tips!
As an Army brat turned Air Force wife who has moved a LOT, I agree that having movers pack your stuff is a huge help. But the record for breakages is about the same with movers as it was when we did it ourselves. LOL Mistakes happen though, and in the end, it’s all just “stuff.” Next time I move, I’m throwing everything away and buying new stuff at the new place. LOL
Good idea! Lol.
