Get a Free Estimate For Your Move


    Moving your home can get quite expensive if you don’t watch your budget and it can sometimes even be more than you can pay. That is the exact reason why many resort to packing and moving by themselves. This might seem like it will cost you less, but the truth is- the chances are it won’t. There are many shortcomings of the DIY relocation you need to know about before you get to move. Leaving the move to some of the best moving help in Clearwater is a much better choice and you will know why if you check our blog. We made sure to tell you exactly why you should leave your move to professionals and have a stress-free relocation this way.

    DIY moves are never a good choice

    You can be sure that even if DIY relocations seem like they cost you less than having some of the best movers in Trinity FL relocate your home, you are not quite right. The thing is, moving professionals charge for the things you really do need. First of all, experience. You and your friends don’t have any experience when it comes to moving homes, and movers do. Actually, some of them have all the experience they could need to handle any relocation without issues.

So, moving companies are the best possible choice for you. Still, if you need more reasons to leave your move to professionals, we have plenty!

    What are the possible shortcomings of the DIY relocation?

    There are many different shortcomings of the DIY relocation. Some are more and some are less likely to happen in the first place. So, you can be sure that everything will be fine if you hire professional movers and let them pack your belongings and move you as well. Yes, packing services are a great investment when it comes to moving. They will do the job in no time and in such a way that your belongings will certainly stay safe until they reach your new home. SO, if you are still wondering, here are some downsides to a DIY relocation:

    • You might get your belongings damaged while packing them
    • Packing will probably take a long time
    • You might damage something while moving it
    • You or one of your friends might get injured while moving your belongings
    • Moving by car is not possible for some of the belongings

    These are some of the reasons why you need to make sure you choose professional movers. You will know this is the right choice if you think of any time you helped your friends and family members relocate without professional movers.

    While packing your belongings, you will have lots of work to get done and a limited time period to do it. And while doing it, the chances are that something will get more or less damaged. That is why you need to make sure you let professional packers do the work for you. They have done it many times before and they know how to be extra careful.

    Packing can take a long time

    Well, packing is, after all, one of the moving processes that take the most time. So, you can simply leave it to professionals and they will do it faster. While packing, we usually run into some things that we haven’t seen for a while and we stop to take a look. This takes our valuable time, and professional movers don’t have this kind of problem.

    Moving might damage your belongings

    This can happen more likely when you move boxes with fragile items. If you and your friends don’t have experience in moving homes, the chances are that something will get damaged. And, that is never a good thing. And the worst thing is that unlike when professional movers move you, getting moved with friends doesn’t mean that you are insured, so you won’t get the money back.

    You or someone else might get injured

    When moving heavy items, you or your friends might get injured. And, you will definitely feel like it’s your fault. These injuries can sometimes be small and insignificant. But, if you, for example, move the piano and it falls on someone’s leg, that could be a disaster. Lifting heavy boxes is another part of the move people sometimes get injured at.

    Moving by car is really hard

    Moving without a moving truck is really hard too. You will have to go back and forth so many times. And, even with multiple cars involved, your washing machine, dryer, and fridge are the things that you likely won’t be able to move this way.

    On the other hand, moving with professionals is easy. They simply come, do all the work for you and go. You will be moved in no time, and you will have more time to spend with your friends and family. With all of these shortcomings of the DIY relocation, you will have a great move if you leave it to the pros. So, leave it to us and have a great move.

    Why Choose Us?

    Big Man’s Moving was a great choice for our recent long distance move! They cared so much about making sure that we were comfortable with the entire process. While I never met Josh, he definitely strives to “do things the right way”. James drove our stuff across the country and we never worried about it once. He was super professional, called us to give updates on his location and brought a good sense of humor to the loading/unloading process. I wish Big Man’s Moving would move to our new city, just in case we ever need them again!
