Many people assume they will save money by moving themselves rather than hiring a professional moving company. However, when considering other potential costs, they may be surprised to learn it’s often more expensive.

While renting a moving truck might seem like a great way to save money, the experts at TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® remind consumers of the hidden costs they may not have considered, such as:

* Time to pack, load and drive belongings to the new destination – plan to take time off work to complete these time-consuming tasks.

* Time (and headache) trying to recruit friends and family – understand there’s no guarantee everyone will show up on move day.

* Renting or buying proper moving equipment – remember the furniture pads, ropes, stretch wrap, dollies and straps to protect belongings during packing, loading and unloading.

* Time to collect enough boxes to pack an entire home or business – avoid used boxes – no one knows what critters are living inside or if the boxes are strong enough to carry items.

* Replacing or repairing damaged items – set aside money to cover the cost of repairing or replacing broken items. If a professional moving company like TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® makes a mistake, it does what it can to fix the problem.

* Doctor’s visits after a rough move – research proper moving techniques to be able to train friends and family members how to move heavy furniture without injury.

“It may seem like moving yourself will cut down costs,” said Two Men And A Truck of Murfreesboro. “But when you add up the hidden costs of completing a move, I think most people will agree it’s less expensive – and much more convenient – to hire professional movers to take on the work and responsibility.”
