In this day and age it isn’t surprising that people try to save as much money as possible. This means that they cut expenses wherever they can and when it comes to moving, you guessed it, people try to move by themselves at least once. No moving company, no “unnecessary” expenses, more money saved. But sometimes this isn’t the case, and although it may seem counterintuitive, hiring a good moving company can actually save you money.
Why would that be the case? Because the lack of experience in moving certain items may damage them thus reducing their value or completely destroying it. Or you may just have to figure out how to move a certain item and waste much more time than necessary. H2H Movers is a company that is experienced in moving and can help you even with items that seem impossible to move correctly. And our services are much more affordable than you may think.
What About Artwork?
If you cherish art and you have bought paintings, you may come to the conclusion that there really isn’t an easy way to move them. And you’d be true. You can read up guides online, but you still risk damaging the item, which will immensely reduce its value. Many people go overboard with packaging and although this can help, it by no means reduces the risk of other items hitting the artwork, which can again lead to damage. That isn’t to say you can’t move it on your own, but you will have to be very creative and find really sturdy boxes or materials to protect it.
And Then There Are Pianos…
This is without a doubt the hardest item to move or so it has been ranked not only by individuals but by many moving companies as well. You most certainly cannot handle that by yourself if you don’t know what you are doing. There are so many things that need to be factored in the move that you will either irreversibly damage the musical instrument or at least diminish its value by bumping it. The piano is the one thing that you absolutely would want to get a company to move.
Your Favorite Plants
Now, these are not particularly hard to move per se, but so many people fail to secure them properly, that we decided to give you some tips at least. First, ditch your ceramic pots. These are prone to breaking even if the road isn’t that bumpy. Plastic ones may not look as good, but they will survive a long trip. But you should move them to plastic pots some time before the move itself, so the plants can have time to settle. Also, if you are moving them in your vehicle, don’t try to save on gas by turning the A/C off (or respectively the heating). They need optimal room temperatures to survive.
Sometimes you just cannot avoid hiring moving professionals, because there are things more important than saving a few bucks. Reduce your stress levels and the chance of headaches by hiring a good moving company to take care of everything.
