There are times when the "do-it-yourself" mentality provides good savings and brings efficiency. There are also times when that kind of mentality holds the potential of creating problems.

Moving the family or office to a new location fits in the latter category.

“I love that we help companies and homeowners through one of the most stressful times, says Matt Schwartzberg, an executive at New York City’s Steinway Moving & Storage.  “Our calmness and expertise is what lets us complete the projects.   Our job is to protect people’s items and get them safely and securely to their new office or home.”

A leader in residential and commercial moving for over 90 years, the company has completed over 100,000 moves.

The 4 Benefits of Hiring Professional Movers

No one enjoys having to move, but with professionals in their corner,  all the customer has to worry about is where to place the furniture and equipment and paying the bill.

The movers take care of the heavy lifting.

By the way, those postings on Craigslist do not qualify as a professional moving company. We are talking about insured professionals who are knowledgeable and well-equipped to handle any kind of move.


The four main benefits  of hiring professional movers include:

Protection Against Damages
Avoiding injury from overexertion
No need to purchase moving supplies and equipment
Time Savings

Protection Against Damages

Nothing will take the fun out of a move faster than damages to important assets or furniture. Professional moving companies take great care in the way they pack, move and organize things. If something gets damaged, the customer will have had the opportunity to purchase insurance to cover the replacements costs.

From door-to-door, a customer's assets are treated with respect.

Avoiding Injury

As individuals, we all tend to push ourselves a little more than we should. During a move, there's a lot of lifting and carrying that puts a strain on the human body. As amateur movers, we don't always know the proper way to pick things up or negotiate stairs.

We might also lack the tools necessary to make the moving process easier. For professional movers, taking on the physical stress of moving is second nature. It's best to let them do the physical work.

No Need to Purchase Moving Supplies

While the cost of hiring professional movers might be a little higher than renting a truck and buying beer for friends, there's savings in other places.

Professional movers will bring in the boxes and packaging supplies and safely pack everything for the move. Additionally, moving companies already have the requisite dollies and moving equipment to help make the process easier.

Time Savings

A properly staffed moving crew knows exactly what they are doing as they pack boxes and load the truck. The amount of time it takes a professional moving crew to empty out the home and transport the furniture/equipment to the new locations takes half the time it would take someone trying to move themselves.

“My ‘why’ is that I love fulfilling the dreams and plans for those who need to get to their new office or home, said Schwartzberg.  The completion of a project and knowing that it had to be done as a team is what drives me every day.”
