Why Should I hire professional movers versus doing it myself?

Not everyone needs to hire professional movers. If you are only moving 10-15 boxes and no furniture, you can probably get away with renting a van and doing a simple DIY move. It’s a lot cheaper and you have the flexibility of moving at your own pace. However, if you have a lot of boxes and large pieces of furniture, it’s better to hire professionals. They know exactly how to maneuver tricky items through narrow hallways without damaging your items or the walls. More importantly, you won’t injure yourself trying to lift and move heavy items. Also, many buildings that have a doorman require their residents to hire professional movers as they are insured and can cover potential damages to the building during the move.
