Three Options For Local Moving

When you are moving across town, you might think that you and a rag-tag band of weekend warriors are up to the task. While your charge for using your friends and neighbors might be a few bottles of water and a platter of cookies, you get better guarantee of quality from professional movers. 

Weekend Warriors

When you enlist your friends to help you move, you would hope that they would care about keeping your belongings safe, but this is not necessarily always the case. Your friends may simply lack the skills to package your gear correctly, and trying to cram as much as possible into the back of a truck is not necessarily a recipe for a safe move. Besides, you are dependent on your friend's schedules. Suffice it to say that part-time movers are often overconfident and under qualified for what you are asking them to do.

Do-It-Yourself Moving

A second option when moving across town is to rent a moving truck. This leaves you in charge of packing your own boxes and loading them on your truck. This means that while you should not have to worry about your cherished belongings falling out of the back of a truck, they can still be damaged during the packing or loading stage of your move. 

Full-Service Movers

The third and most expensive option for moving is also the one that offers the best guarantee of success. Full-service movers like those at Palmieri Movers specialize in moving and will bring their experience to every phase of your move. They will choose the right boxes, expertly pack the boxes, carefully place the boxes in the truck, and then reverse the process at your new location. Not only is this the best guarantee of success, but if something bad should happen during your move, full-service movers offer insurance which will replace any items that may have been damaged during the move.

Because you have several options for moving, you should take your time to decide which one will best fit your needs. If you are moving a few items and are not overly worried about damage, then you and your best buddies may be all you need to make a move. On the other hand, if you have a lot of items to move and/or you have valuables that you really don't want damaged, you should trust your move to carefully trained and insured experts.
