couple unhappy with how hard it was to move by themselves

Reasons You Absolutely Can’t do This Move Yourself

Are you a pianist with a passion for sculpture and large couches? Are you a hockey player who loves having a TV in every room (including the bathroom)? Are you a student with book shelves lining each of your walls? If you have answered yes to any of these questions (and even if you haven’t), the truth is that you cannot pack and move yourself. Need further convincing?

Whether you have a baby grand piano in your home, sporting equipment, books, or electronics; moving these things will be next to impossible if all you have is a mid-sized car and an enthusiastic friend who is helping you for the promise of pizza and beer. Even if you have a pick-up truck, there’s just no way you can move everything you need to safely, quickly, and efficiently. Imagine trying to move an heirloom chest that your grandmother gave you: without having the expertise, how could you possibly guarantee that it will make it to your new location without getting damaged? Besides that, how will you avoid throwing out your back or getting a hernia?!

Moving is stressful enough, we at New City Moving seek to streamline your moving process and take the literal and proverbial weight off your shoulders. We provide full service options that include packing and unpacking everything. This means that we will put everything away for you once we arrive at your new home. Remember Grandma’s chest? We pride ourselves on making sure that your most precious items arrive without so much as a scratch.

True, your friends are helpful, but they aren’t capable of moving your piano, sculptures, or even your precious flat screen TV. Amateurs are great, but you get what you pay for. When you hire us, you get door to door service and a promise to deliver your belongings without damaging them. Obviously, if you are dead set on moving everything yourself, I’m sure you could find a way. I’m not saying that you can’t; I’m just saying that you shouldn’t. After all, how long it will take you and in what state will your possessions be once you have unpacked? If you have spent the days after past moves icing your back and wondering how all your books got wet, perhaps you should consider giving New City Moving a call.
