If you’ve recently purchased a home in Texas, or if you are moving from one apartment to another, you might be tempted to do the move yourself to save some money. However, moving can be one of the most stressful life experiences for you and your family. Having to arrange to rent your own moving van and plan out the logistics of the move will require a great deal of your time and attention that could be better spent elsewhere — like enjoying your new home!
There are many different benefits of hiring professional movers for your next move, but the biggest reason may be the benefit of a stress-free move. Professional movers, like our team at Einstein Moving Company, have loads of experience and know-how to move the right way. We’ll help you pack, relocate, and settle into your new home as efficiently as possible.
If you’re not sure whether or not you want to move yourself or hire professional movers, consider the following advantages of hiring professional movers to help you make your decision:
As we mentioned earlier in this post, a stress-free move is probably the most important reason behind hiring professional movers. A professional moving company takes all the guesswork out of moving by taking over everything from packing and inventory management to relocation.
Experienced, professional movers will be able to complete the move much more efficiently and quickly than you can. They know which routes the moving van needs to take to maximize fuel efficiency and save time, taking into account the latest weather conditions and any road construction or other situations that could cause a delay. Sure, you can rent a moving van yourself, but if you aren’t used to driving a vehicle like that, you’re likely to drive much slower than a pro.
Have you ever tried moving large furniture from your home to a new apartment on the third floor? What about a heavy box of dishes in and out of a tall moving van? If you have the strength and know-how to properly lift without causing an injury, this may not be an issue. However, most people don’t have the strength or training to move large household items quickly or efficiently. This can result in spending hours moving just a single piece of furniture!
Professional movers know what they’re doing, this means you’ll spend less time “pivoting” and more time moving.
Professional movers have the experience and equipment to move items safely to and from your home or apartment. This includes how to properly pack dishes, wrapping dining room chairs, and placing protective floor coverings to avoid dents or scratches.
By hiring a professional moving company, like Einstein Moving Company, you’re ensuring your belongings remain intact and accounted for from point A to point B, so you can spend less time worrying and more time getting excited for your new home!
Another reason why you should hire a moving company rather than doing it yourself is safety. If you aren’t accustomed to moving heavy items around, your body may simply not be up to the task of hauling furniture out of your home, packing it carefully into a truck and then taking it out at the destination to unpack and move it into your new home. Hiring professional movers will help you avoid any unnecessary injuries so you can get back to your regular schedule faster.
All moving companies in Texas are required by the Texas Department of Motor Vehicles to carry insurance and offer liability for damaged or lost goods. If a moving company is operating legally and is registered with the DMV then they are liable for any items broken, lost, or damaged at a certain rate for every pound the item weighs.
Therefore, if any item is damaged or lost by a moving company, it will be covered so you’re not out the cost. At Einstein Moving Company we provide a No Worries Damage Coverage — an extra form of protection for your home and items that are included in our hourly rates!
A big reason people opt out of hiring a professional moving company is the cost. There’s no doubt you can save money by doing it yourself, but at what expense? If the negatives like injury, damage, time, and stress outweigh the overall cost of hiring professional movers, it might be worthwhile hiring a moving company to take the load off by moving for you.
Your time is valuable, don’t waste it waiting around for your friend to show up without the boxes you asked them to bring! A professional moving company will have a date and time scheduled to get all of your belongings from point A to point B making it impossible to put a hold on or procrastinate your move.
At Einstein Moving Company, we provide an On-Time Guarantee that our movers will show up within arrival windows of 2 hours or less so you can spend more time moving and less time waiting around.
You have no idea how much stuff you have until you try to pack it all up! Taking inventory of everything in your home and deciding how to pack can be a daunting task that the most organized of individuals don’t even want to take on. Rather than spending hours packing up your belongings, a professional moving company, like Einstein Moving Company, usually offers optional packing services to help lighten the load.
Moving is made a little more hectic when children and pets are added into the mix. Hiring a professional moving company can help free up your time so you can spend more of it making sure your children and pets are safe and feel comfortable during the moving process.

Moving is made easier and safer with the right equipment. That includes straps, moving dollies, wall and floor coverings, protective wrap for furniture, and more! Renting all of this equipment can be costly and sometimes if you leave renting this equipment to the last minute before your move, you may be stuck without it. A professional moving company will have all of the necessary equipment to protect you from injury and your belongings or property from any damage.
Raise your hand if you’ve had trouble parallel parking. Now imagine trying to park a moving van. Not everyone is comfortable behind the wheel, especially when the wheel is in front of a moving van three times the size of your car! Professional movers, like ours, have the experience to drive large moving trucks across state, within our thorough ways, and how to park to minimize as much disruption for neighbouring homes as possible.
If you’re still not sure whether to move yourself or to hire a professional moving company in Texas, consider that if you book a move with Einstein Moving Company, we’ll plant four trees! You can help the environment without the heavy lifting — literally.
We recommend booking your move at least two to four weeks in advance so you’re most likely to get a time or date that best fits your schedule. High-quality moving companies are usually booked out for at least a week or two, sometimes up to a month if it’s their busy season! Therefore, hire the movers you want early to help you avoid a bad moving company — just because they have the date you need available!
