It goes without saying that professional movers make any move easier. They know what they’re doing, they know where to go, and best of all: they do the heavy lifting. But what about trying to do it on your own? Should you even attempt it? If you’re trying to justify moving alone, whether it’s to or from a building with a doorman, a 4-story walk up, or a cozy townhouse, we’re going to convince you that there’s no “I” in move!
Moving to an Apartment Building
If you’re lucky enough to afford an apartment in New York City, then you deserve to move into it with ease. When you’re moving to a smaller apartment building with only one elevator, that’s going to create a lot of issues. Waiting for it to come up and down and only being able to cram some of your stuff in each time is going to take forever, and you need all the power you can get. Multiple team members mean you’ll always be ready to move another load. Larger apartment buildings will typically have more than one elevator, so use the extra strength to your advantage! By hiring professional movers, you can have several people making trips at the same time, expediting the moving process. Not to mention the fact that moving hard objects like furniture and crates can damage an elevator’s interior. Professional movers know how to get in and out of your building without damaging it.
Moving to a Walk Up
Yikes. The laws in New York are changing to accommodate those with disabilities, but many buildings 5 stories or less do not have elevators simply because they were never required to. Whether you’re moving in or out of a walk up, it’s not going to be easy. This is really where the muscle behind professional movers comes in. Sure, you can ask your friends to lend a helping hand, but so many trips up and down could make you enemies by the end of the day.
Moving to a Townhouse
A townhouse may seem less daunting than an apartment building due to the sheer size difference, but don’t let them fool you: you’re still going to have to make a lot of trips up the stairs. Professional movers won’t just leave your stuff on the ground floor to deal with later (which we all might be a little inclined to do after a long day), but they’ll actually take your stuff up to the floor you want it in.
No matter what your move is, do it right, do it easily, and do it with Divine Moving.
