Should you do the moving yourself or hire professionals?
One of the first decisions you’ll need to make when moving locally is choosing between a DIY move and hiring a professional moving team. In any event, there are advantages and disadvantages to both. Therefore, it’s important to compare and consider all of the factors involved in the decision-making process. We have helped thousands of businesses and residents make the move safely and smoothly over the years. The following is a comparison of both moving methods:
DIY move Advantages:
- More cost-effective than hiring Miami local movers
- You make the moving schedule
- You won’t have to worry about moving scams
- You’re in control of the entire move
DIY move Disadvantages:
- It’s a lot of planning, preparation, and work
- It’s physically (and sometimes emotionally) demanding
- You don’t have the experience that the Family Movers Express team has
- You may need to take off additional time from work
Professional Movers Advantages:
- Alleviates the anxiety and stress of a DIY move and hands over the responsibility of the move to trained professionals (#1 advantage and benefit)
- Frees up more of your time and enables you to focus on other important tasks
- No heavy lifting and physical strain
- Professional Miami local movers are skilled at driving large trucks and trailers
- They have the industry experience required for a quick and efficient move
Professional Movers Disadvantages:
- Although Family Movers Express is a reputable and trustworthy moving company, there are others who aren’t, hence the occasional risk of getting scammed
- Higher up-front cost
- Since they make the moving schedule, you and your family must be flexible
- You’re entrusting your personal possessions to complete strangers
What separates our Miami local movers from other moving companies?
First and foremost, we are a full-service moving company. So, what does that mean? Unlike regular or standard moving companies that only provide the basic services – loading the truck, hauling your belongings, and unloading at your new location – we handle just about everything associated with your move. In other words:
- WE provide all moving supplies and packing materials including boxes, bubble wrap, packing tape, and wrapping paper as well as furniture blankets and padding
- WE disassemble and reassemble your larger furniture items (if requested)
- WE help you pack and unpack at your new home (if requested)
- WE load the truck, transport your belongings, and unload the truck
- WE help with the clean-up and remove all used packing materials as well as other debris from the move
Additionally, Family Movers Express gives you the option of choosing the Miami local movers services that you need. For instance, if you feel more comfortable packing your belongings, we can customize a moving package that doesn’t include this service. We work with every client to ensure our personalized services meet your requirements.
