8 Benefits of Hiring Professional Movers

Moving is exciting, but it’s far from easy. If you’re moving to another state, across the country, or just down the street, you’re probably looking forward to when it’s all over. You might be asking yourself whether you can handle it all on your own (and with the help of family and friends). You might wonder if it’s even worth it to hire a professional Southern California moving company.

Of course, the decision is yours to make, but there are five key advantages to working with professional movers.

#1. Peace of Mind

Instead of worrying about whether your belongings are packed right and will arrive on time, experience the peace of mind that comes with knowing everything is in experienced hands. Professional movers know precisely how to pack, load, and unload every item. They know how to maneuver large and heavy moving trucks on any road. They’ll take care of everything, so you don’t have to.

#2. Reliability

It’s basically impossible for one person to move everything in an entire home on their own. Most people turn to friends, family, and loved ones to help them move, but this can be a lot to ask and some may be unavailable or unreliable. Professional movers will be there on time and ready to go.

#3. Accountability

What happens if something is damaged during your move? If you and your loved ones have packed everything, you’re the ones to be held accountable. If you choose a properly licensed and insured moving company, you’ll know that everything is covered. Plus, there’s a far lower risk of damage in the first place when movers use proper packing and loading procedures.

#4. Safety

Moving can be dangerous. You can strain your back and muscles from heavy lifting, and you could even be seriously injured by a falling piece of furniture or a heavy box. A professional moving company will have the right supplies, equipment, lifting methods, and personnel to safely handle the heaviest and most unwieldy items.

#5. Time

Think about how long it will take you to pack and move everything you own. Think about the hours you and your family or friends will have to spend to get everything done. You already have a laundry list of to-do items to handle, so why not have professionals handle the manual labor? You can focus instead on setting up and enjoying your new home.

#6. Experience

Unless you've moved countless times and have industry experience, you probably have a few uncertainties regarding your move. Which supplies are best? How long will it take? What should you do to pack fragile items? What size truck do you need? These are all questions and issues that can be addressed through experience. At AQMS, we've been moving Southern Californians since 1996. We know what to do and how to make your move as smooth as possible.

#7. Customizable Services

Professional moving companies like ours offer customizable services. They can be tailored to your needs and budget, giving you more versatility (and more options) than you might have thought possible. If you want full packing and unpacking services along with transportation and even storage, we've got you covered. If you just want us to load, transport, and unload your belongings, we can help. Plus, your final cost will be based on the weight of your items after they're all loaded on moving day. You don't have to worry about unexpected fees or costs, and you may be pleasantly surprised to find the cost is lower than expected!

#8. Less Stress & Hassle

With so much going on before, during, and after a move, you need all the help you can get. As professional Santa Clarita movers, we can handle it all so you can focus your time and attention on other important matters. In the end, this can significantly reduce your stress.
