However, it is far more likely that hiring professional movers will be considerably cheaper. You may be surprised to know that hiring professional movers is often cheaper than hiring your own truck. In addition, their experience and professional conduct helps to make the move as fast and hassle-free as possible, as well as taking the best possible care of your furniture, fragile goods and other items, minimizing and even completely preventing breakage and loss.

They also have vital equipment such as large ramps or dollies, critical to ensuring a smooth move.

Professional movers are also likely to give you good advice ahead of time on how to avoid unnecessary costs and how to plan your move successfully. Isaac’s Moving and Storage provide this handy list on how to prepare for your move.
2) Get your timing right
Like most businesses, moving companies have varying demand based upon the time of year. Planning your move far in advance allows you to schedule your move during off-peak times, allowing you to take advantage of cheaper billing rates, less traffic and faster service.
Planning far in enough in advance also allows you to start packing as early as you like, avoiding the cost and chaos last minute packing. Your moving company will also have all the packing equipment you could possibly need.
