Being Motivated To Move

About Me

Being Motivated To Move

After I realized that the business that I worked for was starting to grow internationally, I volunteered to move so that I could see the world. I knew that the country where I would be heading didn't have apartments and houses the size I was used to, so I started looking for different ways to store my belongings. I also focused on improving my family's attitude about relocating, which helped everyone to be motivated to stay organized and complete the move successfully. This blog is all about being motivated to move and doing things correctly, so that you can enjoy a new place.


3 Ways Residential Moving Services Save You Money

Moving from one house to another is rarely cheap, and so most homeowners try to cut costs wherever they can. While this is understandable, it often means ignoring the benefits of residential moving services in favor of a do-it-yourself approach. While a DIY attitude has its time and place, it can actually cost you more money by the end of a move than the services of professional movers.

Take a look below at just three of the ways that residential moving services can actually be less expensive than trying to move everything on your own. 


Nearly all movers underestimate the cost of materials needed to safely pack all of their belongings for a move. Some of the more common packing materials required include tape, trash bags, bubble cushioning, and a reliable box cutter — not to mention dozens of boxes of different sizes. This does not take into account specialty materials you'll inevitably need if you are planning to move items that are bulky, fragile, or both. The cost of residential moving services typically includes all of the necessary materials, which means you won't have to worry about spending too much on materials you'll never use again, or, on the other hand, taking multiple trips to a supplies store because you've purchased too few materials the first time.


Paying for packing materials isn't the only aspect of a move that can be surprisingly expensive; taking the time to do it yourself can be more costly than you might think. This is mostly due to the fact that a move usually takes several days to complete, which means taking valuable time off of work. Rather than waste precious vacation days or unpaid leave, it is often much less expensive to simply hire residential moving services who can take care of the move for you, allowing you to focus on your day.


While moving house might not seem like the most dangerous of activities, it actually presents a number of potential health risks. Moving heavy objects can easily result in muscle sprains (or worse), and debris left over from cleaning out a room represent a constant tripping hazard. Many homeowners may also have to deal with the disposal of what the Environmental Protection Agency deems household hazardous waste (HHW). Leaving all of this up to expert moving services is not only easier, but can also save you money on medical treatment in worst-case scenarios.
