We’ve all heard those moving horror stories – a person waited until the last minute to begin packing and ending up throwing out things they wanted to keep simply because everything wouldn’t fit in their car or truck, or someone thought their friends were coming to help them move, but everyone cancelled or didn’t show. The person who had to move ended up transporting everything themselves and had to make multiple trips to get everything from their old house to their new one. At Billy Goat Moving in Fort Collins, we want you to avoid these types of situations, and with our professional moving services, you can rest assured that we’ll show up on time and that you won’t have to worry about a thing.
Moving Everything On Your Own
While it may seem like you’ll save on moving costs by transporting everything yourself, it’s important to consider the time and sweat it will take to load your car or a rented truck, drive it to your new home, and unload everything. If you’re relying on your own vehicle for your move, keep in mind the load capacity it can handle, as well as if you can safely drive with the car filled to the brim with your stuff. Overloading the car can end up causing damage to it, and that can leave you paying for expensive repairs. If you fill your car as full as you can and can’t see your rearview mirrors, you could end up posing a hazard while you’re on the road. With a professional moving company, you can leave the loading and driving to us, while you focus on more important things, like where you’ll put your couch in your new living room.
Relying on Friends
You’re friends with your friends for a reason – you grew up together, you have things in common, and you’re there for each other. You may think that your friend with a pickup will be willing to help you move, but when you ask, they’re either hesitant to say yes or unavailable on the weekend that you’re moving. They may be willing to let you borrow their pickup, but that can still mean you’re making multiple trips or you’re driving down the highway with your mattress strapped to the truck bed. This can be both unwise and unsafe, not to mention that if you don’t have everything secured properly, you could get pulled over and get stuck with a fine.
