Many of the people who enlist the help of moving companies turn out to be folks who could, in different circumstances, just as well move by themselves (without the help of the moving firms). They nevertheless enlist the help of the moving companies due to:
1. The desire to make the move less stressful: whichever way you choose to look at it, the undertaking of moving from house to another or from one city to another is always bound to be stressful. But it emerges that many of the things that make the whole affair so stressful can be overcome with the help of the moving firms. Granted, a moving company may not be in a position to find you a new place, or to help you make new friends at the new place (which are some of the major sources of the stress associated with moving). But the moving company can help you in the packing and loading of stuff, as well as the unloading, unpacking and rearrangement of your stuff at the new place. These tasks always look daunting and are among the major sources of the stress associated with moving houses. To the extent that a moving company can help you with them, it would have helped you make the move less stressful.

This is the case, even if yours is just a modest living house or office. You need helping hands – and the most obvious place to look for this sort of help is in the moving firms we are talking about.
3. The desire to make the move safer: it is very easy to mess your stuff in the course of trying to move it from one house to another, or from one city to another. This is especially the case if you do so in an amateurish way; in the process knocking things or even losing things on the way to the new place. The people who man the (proper) moving firms, on the other hand, tend to be ‘ removals experts.’ With their help, you can make a safe move from one place to another, without losing or knocking stuff. Sometimes, the thought of the amount of money you stand to spend replacing such stuff that is lost or messed (by being knocked) in the course of making the move from one place to another is enough to motivate you into enlisting the help of the moving companies.
4. The desire to make the move less costly: many people have come to realize that if they try to hire trucks on their own, and then hire people to pack, load, then unload and unpack the stuff at the new places, they end…
