Moving related injuries are hard to avoid. You could hurt your back lifting a dresser or mattress out of the house and into a truck. You could trip over a box on the floor and hurt your ankle or leg. You could strain your muscle lifting too many heavy boxes at once. Trust us, your doctor wants you to hire professional Raleigh movers for your next relocation.
There are many ways to avoid moving injuries. Move slow, don’t run, and take your time when you are lifting heavy items. Don’t try to carry items that are too heavy for you, don’t carry more than one box at a time and don’t carry items on your shoulders or your head. When you lift heavy items, bend at the knees and keep your back straight. Make sure your home is free of tripping or slipping hazards before you start moving out. You can also wear moving gloves with grips to help maintain hold of items. Does your head hurt yet? Avoiding moving related injuries on your own is a nightmare.
If there is bad weather, there is another wrinkle to your moving day. Now you need to make sure you don’t slip outside when carrying those items from the house to the truck. All in all, you are going to be stressed out about avoiding injuries, taking extra time that you need for other aspects of your move and your life to spend on moving slowly.
Don’t spend your first days in your new home in a cast or in bed. Hire professional Raleigh movers to help with packing, unpacking, disassembly and reassembly services and focus on the more important (and safer) aspects of moving.
