10 Reasons Why You Shouldn’t Move By Yourself (Part 1)

You have a big move coming up soon and are anxious about all the gritty details. You’re looking through Pinterest and Googling every “move hack” you can think of. YouTube makes it look so easy, but, in reality, you know that it will be much more difficult to move on your own than what you are seeing in the videos.

Speaking from a professional perspective, you are right to be hesitant and have good reason to worry. Moving is a huge undertaking that can cause serious frustration and hours of wasted time and effort if done alone.

Below, we help explain why you shouldn’t move by yourself and explain why professional movers are always the smart choice:

  1. Moving Happens After Work Hours

After a long day of work, you find yourself at home, resting in your usual spot. You look around, knowing that in just a few weeks, this room will no longer be yours. You will be sitting somewhere else, in the same chair, exhausted after another day of work. You know that should probably start to pack those boxes—well, you should probably go buy those boxes, but you already worked for so long! Motivating yourself to start packing is just too emotionally and physically taxing after work. How can you be expected to pack your entire house after the extensive hours you put in at your job?

The truth is that you shouldn’t be expected to! AQMS’s one and only job is to move your belongings and to make sure that your stuff gets to where it needs to go. If you are taking the time to move your stuff while simultaneously working, studying, and/or raising a family, you are more prone to hurting yourself or your items. So why not call professionals to come and do it for you?

  1. Moving on Your Own Costs Money

You scroll down the Amazon shopping list, desperately trying to find reliable cardboard boxes that aren’t insanely expensive. What is your money buying anyway? Are you really paying money just so you can do all the work on your own? That is a great question! AQMS is an affordable moving company that gives you a fair price. If you aren’t sure you can afford a moving service, let us come and give you a quote. We offer free estimates for any move, international or otherwise. Why pay to work when you can rest?

  1. Quality Time with Friends, Not Boxes

You know your friends love you, but you also know they have a lot of things to do. The last thing you want is invite your friends over after work (see reason 1) to help you pack your “delicates.” It seems like a good idea to at least ask your friends for help, but you know they will have to come over on a Saturday if real work is going to get done. Shouldn’t the weekend before your move be dedicated to quality time with those friends, rather than asking them to spend time with your recently purchased cardboard boxes?

  1. You’re the Best at Enjoying Your Things—Not Moving Them

You may (if you’re honest) spend a lot of time with your computer, your television, your artwork, your furniture, or your bed, but that does not mean that you know how to safely move them to a new location. One wrong Tetris-esque stacking job, one dropped box, one ill-placed item, and you can say goodbye to your favorite entertainment item. These things that you enjoy so much—we want to make sure that you get to keep enjoying them! AQMS has completed thousands of moves to thousands of locations. So we may not know your things as intimately as you do, but we definitely know how to move those things in way that will ensure their safety.

  1. Moving Is Inherently Dangerous

Moving is a dangerous endeavor—one that can easily go from “routine” to “extreme” in a heartbeat. So our question is: Why put yourself and your loved ones at risk for injury? When you hire our professional team of movers, you are investing in keeping your valuables and yourself safe from harm’s way.

So there you have it: the first five reasons as to why you should refrain from moving your valuables on your own.
