Moving house and home isn’t only expensive, it’s incredibly stressful. You have to worry about being able to connect electricity, connect utilities, and other general connections to make sure your new home is livable, while having to budget for other expenses. It’s a process that’s so nerve-wracking you might lose sleep and some sanity over it.
One of the best ways to mitigate such anxieties is to hire house movers, also known as moving mates. Some might advocate doing your move yourself to trim your expenses, but when all is said and done, the sheer convenience of moving mates pays for itself.
If you’re torn between having a low-cost move, or low-stress move, here are a couple questions you should ask before hiring moving mates.
1. How Much Stuff Do You Have to Move?
If you’re a bachelorette or a bachelor moving into a single bedroom apartment, then it might be easier and cheaper to just do things yourself. However, if you need to move your whole entire family into a three or four bedroom house, then chances are it’ll be worth your money to hiring moving mates.
2. How Far Are You Moving?
Distance can also be a huge factor, because you have to consider the cost of mileage and fuel. Many moving mates will charge one flat rate, making it easier and more affordable to move longer distances. If you’re moving down the street, or a mile away, then it might be easier to do things yourself. However, if your new home is 20 minutes away, then perhaps moving mates would be a wiser choice.
Answering these two questions will help you decide if you should hire moving mates or not so that you can have the cheapest, most stress-free move imaginable. If you have any questions, feel free to ask in the comments.
