Moving is a stressful undertaking no matter what. Between finding a reputable company, packing, and timing the move it can be a lot of work. Moving on your own, however, is even more work. So when it comes to moving, you should hire the pros for an extra set of helping hands. Not only will they save you money, time, and energy, they will safely move your belongings from point A to B. Equipped with materials to ensure a safe move for everyone, it’s worth the money. Read about Emmanuel’s first-time hiring movers and their success story below.
Before the Move
Emmanual had not hired movers prior to hiring Atlantic Coast Movers this year. Any time Emmanual had to move in the past, it hasn’t been far and they had been able to manage on their own. Plus, after hearing and reading about moving experiences ending up poorly, Emmanuel felt it was best to do it themself.
When Emmanuel decided to move, they calculated the specs of their move and determined that it was time to hire a professional mover. Thinking about moving all of their stuff from a third-floor apartment, and being the longest distance they’ve moved, it just didn’t seem plausible. Plus, with the pandemic, they couldn’t even have friends and family help them out.
That was another hesitancy from Emmanua -l- the pandemic. Moving is a very interactive job, including both the homeowner and crew. However, moving companies are ensuring they all follow all health and safety guidelines to protect your family, home, and crew. Read about how you can safely move during a pandemic here.
During the Move
Being their first move, Emmanuel wasn’t sure what to expect. Right away Atlantic Coast Movers had great communication, was clear about the plan, and answered any questions that Emmanuel had — which was quite a few.
On the day of the move, the crew arrived on time and got to work right away. This was important as Emmanual was worried about being able to move everything from their 3rd-floor apartment in the allotted time frame. To Emmanuel’s surprise, the crew was quick and efficient, without sacrificing carefulness. There was no rushing, which could have put Emmanuel’s belongings at risk.
As there were some larger items that Emmanuel couldn’t take apart and pack themself, the crew was accommodating to pack them up. They used their equipment and ensured that awkward or delicate items were packed carefully and relocated with care. Emmanuel actually forgot to pack some of their wire drawers, which were full of miscellaneous items. Without hesitation, the crew wrapped them up to secure any loose items and packed them with the rest of the stuff.
After the Move
The extra care that the crew took in packing and moving all of Emmanuel’s belongings meant a lot. Moving is stressful for that reason alone. You’re leaving all of your personal belongings in the hands of a stranger. From the extra packing materials provided for additional cushion, to packing up larger items, and finally packing items that Emmanuel had forgotten about without any complaints, Emmanuel was amazed with the crew.
Moving is a stressful experience. However, hiring pros to take care of your stuff can provide many benefits. With proper equipment, knowledge, and experience they can pack, move, and unpack your belongings properly, efficiently, and with care. Most likely in half the time that it would take you and your friends. Plus, attempting to move large items through stairwells and other tight areas can put you at risk for injury. With the added comfort that movers are taking extra precautions, such as online quoting and PPE, you can feel safe hiring them to help.
