Moving can be one of life’s most stressful events, filled with chaos and emotion as you relocate all of your belongings from one place to the next. There are a variety of reasons as to why people move, but one thing remains the same with each – it is a process that requires planning, heavy lifting, and patience.
Many people think that if they use a professional moving service, they are going to end up paying far too much, and they try to do everything on their own. Doing a move on your own is not only stressful, but can cause damage to your belongings, damage to you, and can take an extended amount of time.
With a moving company like TWO MEN AND A TRUCK®, you avoid all of these hassles – and we put to rest the myth that hiring professional movers will break the bank! For over 30 years at locations all across the country, we have been helping people move forward in their life by providing top-notch moving services. Each one of our moving teams is trained to handle moves with the highest level of care, and they are professionally trained and uniformed when they arrive at your door.
We’ve compiled a list of some of the top reasons you should choose a professional moving company like TWO MEN AND A TRUCK, and we hope you think of us next time you decide to relocate!
The benefits of professional movers
Hiring professional movers means you are putting your items in the hands of people who are properly trained on how to move objects of all shapes and sizes. From furniture and appliances to safes and pianos, our movers know how to handle it all.
Trying to move large objects like furniture or safes can not only be dangerous to do on your own, but can cause damage to everything if they are not handled correctly. Leave the heavy lifting to us!
You can rest assured that when our moving teams handle your items, each object will be padded and stretched wrapped to provide maximum protection from one location to the next.
The perception of professional moving services is that it’s going to cost a fortune, but that is simply not the case, as there are a variety of factors that determine the price of a move. On average, a TWO MEN AND A TRUCK move typically costs $895. This is a price that must be considered when you take into consideration that you don’t have to do any of the work.
The time you save vs. doing it yourself
When you try to handle a home move yourself, there’s no telling how long it could take you. From trips back and forth to asking people to help you, you are taking on a major task if you do it alone.
With TWO MEN AND A TRUCK, a home move typically takes around 5.34 hours – that is getting everything from one place padded and stretch wrapped, loaded onto our 26 ft. moving trucks, and unloaded at your new home – just like that!
Don’t take our word on why using professional movers is a great option – just listen to what our customers have to say!
“I’ve moved five times in the past, all by myself with the help of some friends and family. I was dreading the process of moving again, and decided to hire professional movers. This was the best decision made about this move! It was fantastic having a team of professionals helping move our family’s things carefully and securely. The team was efficient, thoughtful, and knocked it out of the park. I definitely recommend TWO MEN AND A TRUCK to others now.” – Erik, Savannah, GA
“The entire move was handled as expected without surprises. While I was initially surprised to see an estimate for two trucks, I soon saw that the quote was spot-on. Looking back, there’s simply no way that I could have saved any money by attempting to move two truckloads and two cars from Atlanta to New Orleans by myself. The moving crew was professional, courteous, meticulously careful, and exceptionally hard-working. We have a number of irreplaceable antiques and they were handled separately with incredible attention to their care. It gave us peace of mind to know that our interstate move was expedited without the need for sharing a truck or warehousing our belongings, and to have the same crew load and unload added a welcome familiarity.” Chris, Gwinnett North, GA
“My movers – Daniel and Daniel – did a phenomenal job moving me into a new apartment. They took time to inventory all my items, moved furniture around in the new place until it was just where I liked it, and were kind and courteous the entire time. My move came in under the estimate too! Overall, the experience was excellent and I’ll never be moving myself again! Thank you!” – Kay, Lansing, MI
