Hiring Cross Country Movers: Benefits of Leaving it to the Pros!

Hiring Cross Country Movers: Benefits of Leaving it to the Pros!

hiring a cross county moving company

Whether you’re going across the street or moving across the country, the moving process is a big chore. Driving a big truck and loading appliances and furniture is heavy work, but it’s also skilled labor. Most people would do better to save money on the parts of the process they can handle, and leave the rest to trained, licensed, and insured movers.

Here are just a few reasons why hiring cross country movers is a better choice than moving yourself:


Moving is one of those jobs that takes much longer to accomplish than you might think.

There are a million details to handle when you’re moving, from turning off the utilities to changing your mailing address. If you rent a van and move yourself instead of hiring professionals, you’ll be under extreme time pressure on both ends of your move.


Think you’ll save a bundle by moving yourself? Think again.

Truck rentals cost big money, and it’s easy to exceed the terms of your rental agreement. If you can’t move out of your existing home on time, you could run afoul of the terms of your lease or purchase and sales agreement. Packing takes time, and you’ll likely have to take days off from work. You may end up paying more to move yourself than hiring cross country movers if you’re not careful.


Regular insurance isn’t sufficient for moving.

You’ll be driving a big, heavy vehicle full of valuable things. You’re not a truck driver or a mover, and you can do a great deal of damage to other people’s property as well as your own. Professional movers are skilled at loading and unloading a truck, and they are licensed and insured for much higher liability limits than you are. Your savings can evaporate in an instant if you strike a low bridge in a rental truck, or drop an expensive appliance down a stairwell.  Driving an over-sized moving truck rental isn’t for the average person.  Keeping your heavy load inside the lines for 3,000 miles is exhausting and stressful.

Personal Injury

Professional cross country movers aren’t just strongmen.

They are accustomed to handling cumbersome items without hurting themselves or others. They have better equipment, too. Remember, if you injure yourself while you’re moving, you’re not allowed to stop. If you’re seriously injured, hiring cross country movers on an emergency basis while you go to the emergency room can become your reality. That’s no way to save money.

The real fact is that hiring professionals is more economical. Moving is a really stressful procedure and without proper planning, it could become our worst nightmare. However, the professionals should be hired after proper investigation. Professionals has a lot of experience in such field and could accomplish such job successfully. Belongings should be packed properly in order to prevent their damage during the moving procedure.

I like how you said that long distance movers know how to lift and move heavy things without hurting themselves. My wife and I are going to be looking for homes across the country because I am getting a job transfer. We’ll have to make sure to hire someone to help us move because we are both getting older and I have a pretty bad back.

I never took into account that professional movers could reduce the risk of property damage and personal injury damage, as they are properly trained for that work. My aunt will be moving out of state, so I think she’d love to learn more about cross-country moving and it’s benefits. Do you have any tips for hiring a professional in her area?

I really like what you said about how moving takes longer than you might think. I have to move my family to a new city in a different state for a job I have gotten, and I’m worried I won’t have the time I need to do it. Thank you for the information about hiring professionals to avoid being under extreme pressure from the time on both ends of the move.

That is a good point that truck rentals cost a lot of money. It would not be fun to spend a lot of money and exceed my rental agreement terms. Maybe instead it would just be better to hire some professional movers.

I am moving long distance and have been wanting to find the best way to do it. It seems like professionals can help to make sure that your possessions are moved very easily. I think that it might be cost effective to help with the move myself.
