How Professional Movers Can Help With In-Home Moves

Did you know that you can get help from professional movers even when you're not moving into a new house? Here's why you might call upon the pros and what you can expect during the process. 

What Is an In-Home Move?

Rearranging large or unusual items in your home, business, or yard can be dangerous or financially risky if undertaken on your own. For instance, you may need to move a sensitive piano to another floor, replace large home appliances with new models, disassemble and reassemble beds in different rooms, or reorganize the equipment in your barn. Improperly handing such items can cause injury and damage. 

For these reasons, many moving companies offer their services for in-home moves. They are often called upon to help with things like home medical equipment, fitness equipment, hot tubs, air conditioning units, copy machines, farm or landscaping equipment, safes, and antique furnishings. You get the value of their professional experience with all sorts of goods, their planning expertise, and the right tools for the job. 

How Does an In-Home Move Work?

If you want to call on in-home moving services, how does it work? Generally, the movers will visit your home or property to see what you need moved and how complex they assess it to be. You will likely receive an estimate or quote based on the job as a whole. These estimates are often quite cost-effective because you don't have to pay for the moving truck or mileage and you don't need a large block of committed time. 

Some jobs may warrant an hourly rate, depending on what you need done. This could be the case, for instance, if you need to rearrange several rooms but haven't figured out where everything will go or if you don't know much about the level of disassembly and reassembly needed. 

On the day of the job, your professional movers will arrive with the moving equipment they may need based on their experience — including pads to protect the house and the objects, floor protection, dollies and hand trucks, and tools for disassembly. They'll get the job done under your direction and finish in a timely manner so you can get on with your project.
