Why it Pays to Hire Professional Movers

The moving process can be stressful for many, whether you’re moving homes or offices, but professional movers like ours are here to ease this stress in several ways. Hiring a moving company frees you up in a variety of ways, allowing you to focus your time on other parts of your daily life while leaving the job to the pros — and that’s just one of many benefits associated with hiring professionals instead of moving yourself.

At Sullivan Moving & Storage, we’re happy to provide the very best residential and corporate moving services in San Diego and nearby areas, bringing you value and peace of mind in several ways. What are some of the specific benefits of going with professional movers instead of taking on the hassle yourself? Here’s a basic primer.

why hire professional movers

Saving Time and Energy

First and foremost, as we alluded to above, hiring professional movers allows you to simply relax and let us handle all the heavy lifting. In most cases, we can take care of everything from start to finish, including packing up your belongings and carting them away safely. You’ll have more time on your hands for work, family duties, or any other crucial part of life that typically keeps you busy.

Many enter a moving situation thinking they have enough time to juggle responsibilities, but quickly realize they’re out of their element. Not only can it be difficult to find the time to properly box up household items, but it’s also easy to become overwhelmed with all that needs to be done. Luckily, with our comprehensive moving services, you’ll never have to worry about a single detail again during the relocation process — and we’ll even help you unpack once we’ve reached your new location.

Experienced, Licensed and Bonded Team

When you work with us at Sullivan Moving & Storage, you’ll exclusively receive services from experienced movers who are licensed, bonded and insured. We also ensure every one of our employees undergoes a thorough background check to make sure they’re right for the job. What this boils down to is peace of mind, knowing your belongings are in good hands during the moving process.

On-Time Loading and Delivery

Once again, while you may think you have enough time to fit everything in here, most people tend to underestimate the amount of time it takes to pack up a home or office. Between filling boxes, loading them into the truck and then unloading everything at your new location, you’re looking at several hours for any reasonably-sized home or office — and in many cases, timetables that have to be extended due to unforeseen circumstances.

By hiring professionals, you’ll avoid these sorts of delays and get your items where they need to be when you need them there. With a valid window set beforehand, we can offer a precise timeframe during which we’ll arrive at your location and begin the loading process.

Protecting Your Belongings

Whether you have many high-value items or just a few, the single best method for protecting them is by utilizing proper moving supplies. In every instance, we’re happy to provide sturdy moving boxes and other packing materials at discounted prices, meaning you can rest assured your valuables are properly held throughout the entire trip. Or you can always have our experienced packers, pack, and protect all of your items.

Preventing Moving Injuries

Another issue that often crops up due to overconfidence in your personal moving abilities: Possible injuries, which can be anything from minor to severe. Whether someone decides to carry an item down a flight of stairs or attempts to lift a heavy piece without the proper equipment or experience, you’re at risk for harm.

This is especially true for anyone who’s older or has had past pain issues, such as with their back or knees — but what good does it do to hire movers only to attempt the process yourself? You’ll never have to think twice about any potential dangers when you let us handle this for you.

Additional Services

On top of everything we’ve gone over to this point, one of the key benefits of professional movers is all the extra services we offer. Here are just a few examples:

  • Packing and unpacking: We can handle everything from packing to unpacking at your new address, including the entire contents of your kitchen. If you’re living in an apartment or other complex where this would be difficult, it’s all included with our services. We even extend these services to large office spaces.
  • Debris removal:  After the goods have delivered to your new home and have been unpacked. We will haul away any empty boxes and packing material.
  • Storage needs: Are you moving out temporarily but need somewhere to keep your belongings until you’re back in the area? No problem! We can store your items at our warehouse for as long as needed.

Cost Efficiency

Finally, due to everything we’ve gone over here, it’s incredibly common for our clients to realize at the end of a move that our services have actually made their move more affordable. From the way we cover packing materials to all that time we save you — time that can be spent on other important tasks — it’s easy to see how hiring experts can save you money over trying it out on your own.
