Top Reasons to Hire Professional Movers

Save Time and Money With Professional Moving Services

Will a DIY move really save you money? It most likely will not save you time. Instead, you will invest a good portion of your valuable time planning, gathering supplies, and packing. And, the expenses of a DIY move can add up. A successful move takes organization, planning, and plenty of patience and coordination.

Plenty of professional moving companies will cite peace of mind and stress free moving as top reasons to hire them. Those are important, especially if you have special circumstances such as an elderly parent to move. But, let’s look at some of the more concrete benefits to hiring a relocation service like Alliance Relocation Services. We help with not just packing. We help with planning, organization, unpacking, disconnecting and reconnecting, and settling in.

Time Savings

Professional movers have the process down to a science. A team arrives with the experience to pack everything neatly, safely, and quickly. They have all the right packing materials and supplies at their disposal. They won’t have to do a last minute search for just the right size box for your special items.

Packing Services

Much of the stress comes from the packing process. You approach your kitchen with all the dishes, glasses, pots and pans, small appliances, silverware and more, and you become overwhelmed. Where do you start? Let professionals take care of packing, and your stress will melt away.

Focus on Your Job

Perhaps you are moving for your job, or perhaps for other reasons. Still, you have your job to do. It’s hard to concentrate on a moving to-do list and take care of daily tasks at work. A professional moving team can help guide you through the process, answer your questions, and free up your valuable time to get your own job done.

Focus on Your Family

Relocating your household whether it’s across town or across state lines can be emotionally draining for everyone. Having professional movers means you get to focus on your family members and enjoy the fun parts of moving to a new home and neighborhood. Let the professionals handle the packing and other elements of a relocation, so you can focus on what’s important.

Cost Effective

After renting tools, equipment, furniture pads, and a moving truck, you will find that the expenses of a DIY move add up quickly. You may need to purchase specially shaped boxes and other packing materials. Then there’s bubble wrap, packing peanuts, tape, floor tarps, and more. If an expensive piece of furniture or a valuable antique is damaged in the move, you have no recourse to recover the damages. Get an estimate from several movers and compare that cost to what your true costs of a DIY move will be.

Customizable Services

Your needs are unique. Many professional moving companies offer customizable services to meet those needs. You can choose from full or partial packing options, or opt to have help unpacking and reconnecting electronics and appliances. If you need help packing your fragile or specialty items, your mover may offer custom crating services.

Move Coordination

Having a professional guide you through the entire relocation process is very helpful. A personal move coordinator can answer your questions, offer valuable advice, and connect you with vetted service providers. A single point of contact is a true time and money saver.


A professional mover will offer you options to protect you in case of loss or damage during the transportation of your goods. Make sure you understand your options at the time you receive a moving quote.


Experienced movers know that packing, lifting, loading and handling furniture can be tricky. Don’t risk straining your back or injuring yourself. Professional moving teams are efficient and have the skills it takes to move your oversized couch down two flights of stairs safely.

Add-On Service Packages

Like customized services, many professional movers offer a menu of services so you can choose the right ones to meet your needs, budget, and timeline. These services could be box/debris removal or cleaning services. It’s your choice.
