Are you the type of person who loves to “take care of business” on their own? Toilet backed up? Not a problem. Need to cut down a tree? You grab a chainsaw, climbing shoes, and ropes and get to work. Repaint the wall and lay down hardwood floors? Done and done!
Look at you go! In fact, I’m a little bit envious of your can-do spirit.
However, if you are over the age of 30, I want to share with you a word of caution when it comes to packing and moving.
You’re not as young as you think you are.
Your knees do NOT need to be doing all that bending and lifting of boxes all day long.
Your friends also don’t want to come help you for a few cold beers and Little Caesar’s pizza. (C’mon at least order Dominos!)
So for the sake of everyone involved, please hire movers.
Choosing to hire mover will…
📦 Decrease your stress level
📦 Keep away the gray hairs you’d get trying to drive a 20’ truck across the city during rush hour
📦 Prevent you from playing life-sized Tetris in the moving truck
📦 Allow you to focus on your family
📦 Save you hundreds of dollars in medical bills (because let’s admit it, you’d probably end up in the ER trying to lift that washing machine by yourself)
So yes, while hiring movers will cost you a couple bucks, I’d say it’s well worth the investment.
