Whether you’re relocating entirely or just need to get a few things out of the way so that you can start the remodel of your dreams, moving large and heavy objects is no small feat. Hiring a moving company to move just one or two items might sound like overkill or something you could pay friends and family members to do instead, but this post discusses four glaring reasons why the heavy lifting should be left to the pros. If you need movers who can handle furniture, pianos, and other heavy items, call Kanyon’s Movers in Salt Lake City for a free estimate!
You Could Injure Yourself
The first and most important reason why you shouldn’t move large and heavy items on your own is that you could seriously injure yourself or those around you. It doesn’t matter if you’re moving an object just a couple of feet across the room or down several flights of stairs — without proper technique and lifting equipment for awkwardly sized objects, you could risk an injury that affects you or someone you care about for years to come. Our furniture movers underwent special training to understand how to lift heavy and awkward items properly — don’t make the mistake of thinking you can handle it on your own!
You Could Damage Your Home
Even if you keep yourself and anyone else helping you safe, you could still damage your home and find yourself in need of expensive repairs. From scratched floors to damaged drywall, light fixtures, and anything else in the surrounding area, you don’t want to find yourself having to pay for home repairs and hire professionals to get the rest of the job done. You can save yourself time and money by hiring our moving company instead!
You Risk Damaging Your Belongings
Some of the most common large and heavy objects we move include wooden furniture, pianos, pool tables, and other high-end goods. These objects are often hand-carved and made with luxurious materials, making them closer to works of art than everyday objects. When you try to move them on your own, you risk damaging them due to improper handling, loading, or because of the warnings outlined in the previous two paragraphs.
You Deserve Peace of Mind
As professional movers, we believe that the most important part of our job isn’t actually moving items to and from homes — it’s providing our clients with peace of mind. Whether you’re moving out of your home and need assistance with heavy objects or just need something moved from one area to another, changing your living space and handling heavy, expensive items is stressful.
Many other Salt Lake City moving companies charge high fees for heavy items in addition to their normal moving costs, but we put our clients first and offer affordable, accessible rates on all of our services — heavy item moves included. We would love the opportunity to tell you more about who we are and what we can do for you, so please give us a call or reach out to us through our online contact form to request a free, no-obligation estimate!
