Move in half the time
Trying to decide whether to hire a mover or do it yourself? Professional movers answer this frequently asked question.
Why use professional movers instead of friends and family?
Keep belongings safe
"It’s less hassle for you to have three big guys come into the house and move everything. It would take you and your friends or family twice as long. We’re pros, and we know what we need to do to get the job done right. We wrap everything really well, and we have the necessary equipment to get everything from point A to point B without dents and scratches to your items," says Reese Farrow, president of Smooth Mooves Inc. in Watertown, Massachusetts.
"People rely on friends and family for as long as they can, then it gets to the point where the pizza and beer don’t really cut it. They find that their friends start bailing out. We’ll do something in two or three hours that would take an average person an entire day," says Pete Danz, co-owner of Mambo Movers in Philadelphia.
