Choose the perfect moving experience by putting your trust in
the capable hands of Spyder Moving + Storage

Hello, and welcome to the Spyder Moving Services blog! We’ll be updating our blog continually with fun content about moving and packing, so be sure to check back if you want to learn some cool new things!

In our first post, we’d be remiss not to talk about one of the most important aspects of our business — why it’s even necessary to hire a moving company in the first place. Many people have moved by themselves several times over, and plan to move by themselves again. So what, you might ask, is the benefit of hiring a professional moving service over going at it solo?

Why You Should Hire a Moving Company

It’s Easier on Your Body

Is there anyone who has ever moved a whole apartment’s worth of stuff to a new location, and said, “well, that was easy” afterward? Probably not. That’s because moving is a long and difficult process that has you lifting heavy objects over and over and over.

When you move, you’re constantly bending over to put things in the boxes, and then putting stress on your back as you lift heavy objects, such as bins, pieces of furniture, and so on. This puts a lot of stress on your body.

Meanwhile, moving companies have entire teams of packers and movers who are trained to do this kind of job every day. Do your body a favor and let them take care of it.

It’s Much Faster

Moving can be an extremely drawn out process. It may take you days or weeks to fully pack your stuff into moving boxes, and then if it’s just you with the help of a couple of relatives, it can take hours upon hours to get everything packed into your vehicle. Moving objects such as armoires, shelves, and other heavy furniture will also take longer without proper equipment.

Spyder Moving Services has a team who handles moving jobs every day, and you can bet we’ve learned how to work fast over the years. Want a moving job that won’t take more than a couple of hours? We’re the ones to call. Additionally, we have all the moving equipment you might need, such as dollies, straps, furniture pads, hand trucks, and more.

It’s Safer and More Secure

Another issue that’s really important in any moving job is safety. Moving can actually be quite dangerous if you’re not careful. Oftentimes, people lift up large furniture that’s too heavy for them to handle — dropping it can result in serious injury, or even worse if it falls on somebody else, such as a small child.

Security is also an issue. Amateur packing jobs often don’t secure items as well as they should, resulting in your possessions crashing and falling in the moving truck. The last thing you want is moving to a new location, only to find that everything you moved is broken.

Spyder Moving Services will ensure that every last one of your items is packed securely in our reliable moving truck, and because you’re leaving the work to a professional team, you can bet that there won’t be injuries.
