If you’ve ever moved anywhere (in and out of college dorms count!) then you know how stressful and exhausting it can be. Most people have one (okay, multiple) pet peeves about moving — the packing! The unpacking! The broken dishes! The lack of cable and internet! No matter what bothers you the most, you’re sure to find out when you move. And the truth is, you’re not alone:
- According to the U.S. Census Bureau, an estimated 17 international moves occur each year throughout the world (and you thought just moving the next town over was rough).
- An estimated 40 million people move in just the U.S. alone.
- Research actually shows that couples with kids tend to make long distance moves more often than couples without kids.
No matter what your biggest pet peeve is, one thing is certain: you have more important things to worry about than broken dishes. Whether you’re moving ten minutes away or you’re moving across the country, professional moving companies can make your move a little less stressful. Professional movers come equipped with the right tools to pack up your house safely and quickly, so you can worry less about whether your TV will make it there safely, and more about whether you’ve packed enough snacks for the road (even if you don’t have kids).
Many people refuse to hire professional movers because the cost of moving is already so high — hiring professional movers? No thank you! I don’t want to empty my bank account completely. But many people find that hiring a moving company is actually the cheapest way to move. It saves you time and money, it cuts back on stress — what’s not to love? The moving process is complicated as it is; there’s no reason to make it any worse than it has to be.
