Hiring movers to assist with your move is a smart decision for a long list of reasons, but you might be debating as to whether you'll do the packing yourself or have the movers do it. If you opt for the latter, you'll need to schedule some dates to have the crew arrive at your home, pack supplies in hand, and pack everything up for your moving day. There are plenty of advantages to doing the work yourself, and there are also benefits to hiring the moving crew to take care of this task. Sometimes, your situation will dictate which approach you should take — here are some signs that you should have the professionals do your packing.
You're Too Busy
If your schedule is packed, it may be difficult to do your packing yourself. If you're already going to take a few days off work for the move, you might not be in favor of taking more days off to pack — and the packing can take several days of solid effort, even in a moderately sized home. If you're short on spare time, trying to pack yourself can be stressful. In this scenario, it's far better to hire household movers to take care of this job for you.
You Have A Bad Back
If you're nursing a sore back, having the moving crew working for you on moving day will allow you to avoid worsening your discomfort. It's important to consider the packing process and what role it might play in your back pain. Packing can be physically demanding — lifting heavy objects, moving full boxes, and performing other similar tasks can potentially strain your muscles or cause other injuries. To avoid worsening your pain in advance of moving day, think about having your movers handle the packing for you.
You Don't Have Any Supplies
Some people break down boxes from previous moves and store them, which helps in advance of their next move. However, if you don't have any moving supplies, you might not be looking forward to buying them or trying to get them for free in various recycling bins around the city. Instead of wasting time, think about the alternative of hiring your moving crew to pack for you. The crew will arrive will all manner of boxes and other packing supplies, including clear plastic wrap, bubble wrap, and more, to get the job done right.
