My anxiety grew when I realized that I would be faced with brand new coworkers and a new office. However, I decided to have a good attitude about it, and you wouldn't believe the difference it made in my life. It changed a drab, depressing move into an exciting change filled with adventure.

Why You Should Hire A Moving Company For A Local Move

If you're upgrading to a bigger house in the area or moving closer to work, it may be tempting to move everything yourself. But there are advantages to just hiring a local moving company, such as Walsh Moving & Storage, to do it for you!

Save Time

Moving companies often offer comprehensive moving services, including packing boxes, padding corners of large furniture, and of course, loading and unloading the moving truck. If you've ever packed and moved by yourself, you know that the entire process is extremely time-consuming and not fun at all. Let a company come in with a team of professionals and you'll be surprised at how fast and pain-free your move will be.

Save Your Back

If you hurt your back the last time you moved by carrying too many heavy boxes up 6 flights of stairs, you're at risk of injuring it again. Even if you don't have a bad back, moving your entire house is a strain on your body. You never know when your neighbor will drop a box on your toe, or when you could trip on an uneven sidewalk moving a large box. You're moving to improve your life, not make it worse. So don't be a hero, and save your body the stress.

Save Relationships

Moving is a big job, one that requires a lot of man power. If it's just you, or you and your spouse, you probably need backup. In the past you've asked various friends and family to help you come move; but maybe you've moved so many times they've stopped answering their phones! Keep friends and family around by leaving the heavy lifting and packing to a local moving company.  

Save Money

It might seem counterintuitive, but hiring a moving company can actually save you money in the long-run. You won't have to take those precious vacation days off of work to sweat and toil over boxes. You won't have to rent a moving truck, a dolly, or a trailer (that often come with non-refundable deposits). And you'll save money on medical bills if you would have gotten hurt while moving.

You may just be moving across town, but hiring a local moving company is a great option to avoid a lot of hassle and stress. You'll free up time to worry about more important things, like the new entertainment room you set up in your new house! Call a local moving company today for a quote and get moving on a better life!
