Are you considering hiring a moving company to tackle your upcoming home or office move? There are a ton of perks that come with a DIY move. You aren’t going to get these perks if you bring in the big guns and hire a moving company.
Why Hire A Moving Company?
1. ALL THAT BACK BREAKING, SOUL-CRUSHING, STRESSFUL WORK
Packing is pretty intense, but actually moving those boxes and that heavy furniture? That’s the stuff dreams are made of. If you love back-breaking work and simply aren’t getting enough in your average day, then why hire a moving company? They’re going to handle all the lifting, all the carrying, and all the loading and unloading, leaving you with nothing except a chance to sit back and relax while you enjoy your new space.
2. YOU NEED SOMETHING TO DO
Face it: you don’t have enough to do. The family, work, friends, hobbies, and other commitments aren’t keeping you that busy, and you’re basically sitting around twiddling your thumbs and just wishing you had some stressful, strenuous activity to fill the day. What fits the bill better than physically moving all of your stuff from point A to point B? Absolutely NOTHING. It will take hours, if not days, to make your move – days spent contemplating why you chose to buy the heaviest couch on the planet and wishing you hadn’t accumulated so much stuff. What could be more fun?!

3. YOU’RE STRONG AND YOU NEVER GET TO SHOW IT OFF.
Moving guys take all the feats of strength out of a move, but you know better. You’re pretty strong and, clearly your family, friends, and neighbors don’t know quite how strong. A move is a perfect opportunity to show off your hard-earned muscle mass by lugging box after box after box onto and out of a moving truck. They’ll be so impressed, they’ll probably ask you to help with their move, giving you more soul-crushing work to fill your wide-open days. Who really needs to hire a moving company anyway?
4. YOU’RE A TRUE DIYER WHO BELIEVES EVERYTHING IS REPLACEABLE
You fixed your car and your toilet, and you dealt with that pest problem in your attic. You are a lifelong DIYer. If there’s a problem, you’re all about handling it solo versus hiring an expert. Sure, it’ll cost you a few hundred or a few thousand dollars in additional repair work and eventually you’ll have to call in a pro, but no one’s perfect. The same rules apply to your move. If a few precious items and family heirlooms get destroyed en route, it’s all in the name of DIY, right?
