What Items Require A Professional To Move

Three Movers

What Items Require A Professional To Move?

Any time someone moves, it’s tempting for them to attempt to handle part of or the entire job on their own. In some cases, this may make sense, especially if you’re operating on a limited budget. But in many cases, there are items that only a professional mover should handle. This mainly applies to large and heavy items, though you should look to the pros for help if there’s anything you’re moving that you think might be difficult to handle on your own. These items are riskier to move, not only because they could be damaged if moved incorrectly, but also because of the possibility of injury if you don’t have the right approach with the right equipment.

Hot Tubs

Hot tubs are one of the most difficult items to move, whether you’re a professional mover or trying to go about it yourself. With that said, always look to a professional moving company to move a hot tub if it’s an option. Not only are hot tubs large and heavy, but there are many small parts that could easily break if mishandled. There’s no need to risk damage to your hot tub by going it alone, not to mention there’s tremendous risk of injury should something go wrong. An experienced moving company has the manpower, equipment, and expertise to move large items like hot tubs without any problems.


Pianos fall under the same category as hot tubs when it comes to the items that are among the most difficult items to move. They’re also large, heavy, and tend to be asymmetrical, which makes them even more difficult to safely load, deliver, and unload without incident. Pianos also present another obstacle in that they’re not always easy to move into a home without damage to them or the walls of the house. Having a moving expert on your side will prevent you from taking on more than you can handle and ensure that your piano and your home are in perfect condition when all is said and done.

Another area in which professional movers are needed is when you’re relocating appliances like refrigerators, washers, dryers, or anything else that’s particularly heavy. Moving companies have specialized equipment to handle these things and, while you can the equipment yourself, it’s a much better option to have someone who’s experienced with such things to handle the job.


Safes are another item on the list of difficult to move items that you shouldn’t try to move yourself. Though there are smaller safes that you can move on your own, larger safes might require the help of someone who’s more experienced moving heavy, large, or unwieldy items. One of the main benefits of working with professional movers is that they handle the things you can’t or don’t want to move on your own. In our experience, safes definitely fit the bill of things that people would prefer that a professional mover to help with.

Heavy Furniture

Finally, there’s the heavy furniture. Large sectional couches or heavy dining tables, entertainment centers, and anything else you have that’s difficult to move are a good candidate for movers to handle. In the end, it’s about your comfort level and safety and if there are any doubts about either one, it’s time to call a mover. Even if you don’t need full service moving, there are plenty of moving companies that are happy to help with the more difficult aspects of your move.

Customer Reviews

I just wanted to say thank you so much for the great help with our move. We have so much stuff and I was really worried about being able to take the time off work to pack and get everything moved and unpacked. Three Movers saved the day! Your men showed up and had our house and garage packed fast and even put everything in the precise room at the new house. You saved me a great deal of time and saved my family a lot of money! Thanks so much!
