Moving to another home or location, however the distance can be an expensive endeavor no matter how you try to cut it. You may even attempt to scale back the costs of a move by considering doing it yourself, but it may end up costing you much more than you’d think – or than you’d planned. Here are the reasons why hiring professional movers may be one of the best decisions you’ll make:

- Reduced Likelihood of Injury

Even if you are in great shape moving bulky furniture and appliances can be very difficult and un-safe. Since professional movers are trained to do this on a everyday basis, they already know how to move these items properly to avoid harm and property damage. Movers come prepared with special equipment to help them do their work safely, quickly and efficiently.

- Spend Your Time To Do Other Things On Moving Day

Hiring professional movers are ready to handle the time-consuming task of moving furniture while you take care of important matters; such as making sure the house is prepared for the new owners to move in, your utilities are correctly set up, and for any other last minute preparations.

- Last Minute Heroes

If you are in a position where your move was unplanned or happened much more quickly than you had expected; that you find yourself with little to no time to pack, calling experienced packers and movers really come in handy.

- All Your Precious Cargo Will Be Insured

If any of your items such as your T.V. gets dropped or damaged in a DIY move, then you’re just out of luck, and you’ll have to spend money to replace these items. A moving company on the other hand, will have different insurance options from which you can choose to cover your belongings. Professional movers take a total inventory of your items and are fully responsible for their careful packing and safe delivery.

- You Will End up Saving Money

Many homeowners find out too late that they’ve underestimated many things such as the size of the truck they rented, the types of tools or materials they'll need, the fuel cost for long distance moves and the amount of time required to get the job done right. A good moving company will have all the necessary tools, truck, materials, and men to make your as stress free possible.

Most of us are fundamentally on the move; whether physically or figuratively. And a number of these moves aren’t always determined by us. In some cases, we wouldn’t move an inch if we had our way. But unfortunately, having our way, when it comes to moving, isn’t always a choice we have absolute control over. And there are a ton of reasons for it. Perhaps you may have just gotten a new job in a city outside your current location, and you are required to move to that city to resume work, or you just got married and you need to relocate, to join your spouse who lives in another city. Maybe yours is the case for a new apartment that you just rented, or a beautiful house – your dream home that you just bought. Moving can be very stressful and, a lot of times, over the budget. It can be even more stressful if the moving was triggered by the death of a loved one, a case of divorce, or an unexpected situation. While it is true that the thought of moving isn’t always a very cheerful one, moving is absolutely unavoidable. Whatever the case may be, the fact remains that every one of us, at some points, has to move to someplace in his or her lifetime. And for which reason, we must seek ways to make the process feel more bearable and pleasant. Highlighted below are a few tips that we have put together to help you make a budget-friendly and less stressful move:


Planning a budget is the first and, in fact, the most important step towards planning a move. It is imperative that you have an estimate of how much the entire process is going to cost; so you can compare it with your budget to see what other options are available to you. If not planned accordingly, you will find yourself overwhelmed with unexpected costs. Especially if it is your first time moving.


Let’s face it; there are a number of items in your home that have not been in use for several weeks, months and even years. Probably some antiques or books of high value or other items that you have grown used to having around. And you may not have a need for some of them, in the nearest future, if you ever will, in your lifetime. This category of items is usually the first set of ‘extra luggage’ that you may want to shed off when moving on a tight budget. Of course, this isn’t always an easy thing to do. But it will certainly make the moving process, and expenses, a lot more bearable. You may want to consider giving these items as gifts to someone who values them or simply donate them to a goodwill, libraries or some kind of antique resource.



Peak seasons for moving companies are usually between the months of May and September, mostly weekends, and national holidays. When moving on a tight budget, you may want to consider moving during the off-season or expect to pay higher rates otherwise.


When moving yourself, you may enlist the help of a friendly neighbor, family member, a colleague at the office or a business associate with a truck that could help you with your move. At first glance, this may appear budget friendly and convenient, however, disaster may be waiting to happen if they mishandle or even cause damage to expensive or fragile items that could have been moved in a more safe manner by a professional moving service. Hiring a local moving service, you will be able to gather information by their reviews, years in business, rates, and of course reputation. When comparing the two, you will be off to a better start in making the moving process easier and cost effective. Whichever one you choose, remember to have some snacks and drinks available, for in doing so, it will definitely help in the process!


Now, you or someone that you know no longer needs to feel financially stressed or overwhelmed about what should, or shouldn’t be done when planning a move on a tight budget. And if you decide to enlist the service of a professional moving company that offers a variety of great moving services at an affordable price, J&R Moving, LLC, would be a very smart choice!
