Moving can be very expensive, so you may think you are getting a cheaper deal having your friends help you move. Your friends, however, aren’t professionals, and they may not take your valuables as seriously as you do. Not that they would not intentionally break anything or destroy it, but they since they aren’t professionals, they may not know the proper techniques for moving, or even have the proper tools. This could create the possibility for things to get broken and cost you more money.


With Ace Midwest Moving, your local Minneapolis movers, you will have a staff that knows how to properly move your stuff, as well as the proper tools and equipment for the job. This will result in safer handling and in result, money saving. Here are a few things to consider when making the choice between friends or professionals.


1. Reliability

Your friends may tell you they will help you move when the time comes. You may even be able to get away with paying them with pizza and beverages or nothing at all. But when moving day rolls around, will you be able to count on them? Professionals will be there on the exact day you book with them—it is their job. So you’ll know you can count on them whereas, your friends may decide to show up late or not at all. This could add significant stress to your move, which would not be ideal.


2. Distance

Consider how far your new home is from your old place. If it is quite a distance, you will want to hire a professional. Traveling a long distance with unprofessional movers allows for a greater chance of items being misplaced or broken especially, if the truck is packed incorrectly. Ace Midwest Moving’s team of professional movers and packers will move your residence or business locally, to a new town or to another state. We can even help with military moves.


3. Amount of stuff

The amount of stuff you have could be the determining factor for who should help you move. If you have a lot of heavy stuff to be moved, you may not want to risk injuring your friends. Professionals will have the right tools and equipment to get lots of big bulky items moved. This will cut back on the risk of injury significantly.


4. Stairs

Another thing to consider is the amount of stairs you and your friends may have to climb to get your belongings moved into your new place. Again, you risk the chance of somebody being injured carrying your stuff up the stairs. More than likely, your friends more will not have the correct equipment or training for this. With professionals, there is no need to worry about overexertion because we have everything to move your stuff up the stairs.
