Gentle Giant's response to the Coronavirus

Should I Hire Movers?

If you have even wondered to yourself “should I hire movers”, the answer is probably yes. There are many benefits that professional movers offer throughout the moving process, even after the move has occurred.

Once you have figured out when and where you are going to move, you’ll need to decide how you will effectively transport all of your belongings. Here are a few reasons why we suggest hiring movers.

1.) Hiring movers saves you time

For many of us, time is money, and the expertise of professional movers means your move will be prompt and organized. Our staff have been trained extensively to manage every type of situation you may encounter during the moving process, including staying calm and collected during the unexpected. We even offer packing services for those wanting to protect their items without sacrificing precious hours in their day.

At Gentle Giant in particular, you may have heard we implement “box runs” from your home to our trucks, which means we are in hustle mode constantly as we safely run boxes from point A to point B. This fast service means we are getting all of your belongings on the truck as quickly as we can. Doing so allows us to make sure we can get you settled into your new home as efficiently as possible, so you can get back to your daily routine.

2.) Hiring movers can save you money in the long run

The upfront cost of hiring movers can feel intimidating if you haven’t paid for professional moving services before, but we have seen the benefits of hiring movers outweighing the costs on more than one occasion. There are unexpected challenges which may arise when moving on your own or with a company who isn’t reputable, and we believe it is not worth putting your valuables or wellbeing at risk. You may end up having to pay more money down the line to repair items broken in transit if they were not packed properly.

We take care of your items as if they were our own, which means they are treated with the utmost care and minimizes damage. In the event of any damage to your home or items, our in-house quality control team is here to help and repair damages with compassion and a smile.

3.) Hiring movers allows you to invest in your community

Our organization loves any chance we get to give back to the communities in which we have operations. The Gentle Giant Charitable Foundation allows us to fund projects we care about and invest our neighbors and society.

The benefits we offer our movers and office staff are exceptional for our industry and include healthcare, parental leave and paid time off, among other healthcare necessities.

Companies with day laborers will not provide the same attention to healthcare or family life for employees, which can impact how they serve customers. We take care of our employees so they feel empowered and well to be able to offer the best to our amazing customers.
