With a warm, sunny weekend ahead of us, we are flying right into the heart of do-it-yourself season. But do-it-yourself doesn’t have to mean yourself. You just need to know who can help! And for these spring cleanup/renovation projects, hiring movers can make your life a lot easier.
1. Junk/old furniture removal
If you’re like most people, you’ve probably set a few things into your basement or garage, awaiting the time that they will once again be useful. And if you’re like most people, that time may never come. This grows truer the longer you live in a house; junk and old furniture will pile up. Taking it to a dump, or second-hand store, can be quite a task, if you have to do it on your own. However, many moving companies (ourselves included!) are more than happy to come and help you clear out your belongings. You can arrange for a donation, or just trash it altogether. The important thing is that you don’t have to do it yourself!
2. Clearing rooms for painting, flooring, or other renovations
A lot of people choose this time of year to tackle some home projects. If you plan on painting a room, refinishing the floors or carpeting, installing new windows, or anything else that might require you to clear out a room (or many rooms of furniture) – you can get help with all the heavy lifting. If you’ve got the room to store items at your own house, you can still hire movers to take everything and clear it out. You’ll have the floor open to do whatever it is you need to do.
3. Furniture delivery and assembly
If you plan on doing any furniture shopping, you may want to consider hiring movers to help you get things from point A to B. Even Craigslist (or other hand-me-down, person-to-person) pick-ups can be arranged by your local moving company. And if you do get some new furniture, there’s a good chance it’ll come in a box, and assembly could take hours of frustration. We suggest you save that aggravation, hire a moving company, and get outside and actually enjoy the beautiful spring weather!
