Moving is one of life’s most stressful events. There’s nothing more frustrating and destabilizing than packing up everything you own, even if you have the help of local and long-distance movers.

At Big Joes Movers LTD, we’re sure your friends are great and would move mountains to help you out, but that’s a lot to ask of anyone!

But when you find yourself facing a move from your Calgary home in search of a new life in Halifax, Vancouver, or anywhere in between, call one of the best cross-country moving companies in the area: Big Joes Movers LTD.
Consider these factors when planning your next big adventure. You’ll be surprised that often the cheapest way to move long distance is to hire a qualified long-distance moving company for help.
Five Shocking Health Benefits of Hiring Long-Distance Movers
You already know that moving across the country is one of the more stressful experiences you could ever have. If you’re staring down the barrel of a coast-to-coast relocation, you know exactly what we mean. And if you’re one of the many people from elsewhere in Canada looking to move to take
advantage of the amazing economic opportunities we’ve got in Calgary, this subject is likely at the forefront of your mind.
We’ve already gone over how hiring a cross-country moving service can save you time and money below. But did you know that hiring furniture movers can also bring you health benefits? Here’s a list of five surprising ways that hiring movers can improve your health!
1. Lower Blood Pressure
Medicine has known for a while that high blood pressure contributes to all sorts of horrible health problems. In fact, it often goes in tandem with the heart disease that kills millions of Americans every year. It’s the reason doctors recommend you eat more fibre and consume less salt.
You know what the biggest contributor to high blood pressure is after diet and exercise? Stress. Like the stress of spending a week with no sleep packing everything you own and anxiously waiting for the long distance moving truck to arrive, then cramming yourself onto a bus or catching a plane to get to your destination.
Don’t take statins. Hire us instead!
2. Reduce Back Pain
Did you know that chronic lower back pain is one of the number-one reasons that people get referred to pain specialists for? And slipping a disc is easier than you think. In our sedentary lifestyles, our bodies aren’t accustomed to the sorts of heavy lifting that cross-country moving entails.
When you hire Big Joes Movers LTD to provide our excellent moving and storage service, you let the big strong folks who lift heavy boxes every day handle it. That means there’s no chance of you tearing a ligament.
3. Avoid Repetitive Motion Injuries
Tennis players and office workers aren’t the only people at risk of repetitive motion injuries. Every time you bend down to pack something into a box, you can put as much as 60 pounds of stress on your neck! It’s not hard to see how a few days spent doing this could actually place some serious pressure on the muscles in your neck and upper back. To avoid a major kink in your shoulders, hire us for packing services instead.
4. Eliminate Headaches
Stress doesn’t just raise your blood pressure, but it’s also one of the biggest causes of headaches. Tension headaches happen when muscles can’t relax. And your muscles are constantly reacting to your psychological state.
When your move is over, your headache will probably go away. But all the Advil in the world won’t help that move go any smoother.
5. Get a Better Sleep
When you hire Big Joes Movers LTD, you take all the agony, anxiety, and guesswork out of the equation. It’s hard to catch a few Zs when your mind is racing thinking of everything you need to accomplish with your long distance move.
Instead, hire Calgary’s cross-country moving service specialists. You’ll sleep like a baby knowing your belongings are in our capable hands.
The Hidden Costs That Long-Distance Moving Companies Absorb
When making a relocation estimate for your next long-distance move, think about these questions. Accurately estimating the cost of your next trip isn’t as simple as getting a quote for a moving truck rental. How much will gas for your trip cost? What about lodging? Is the trip longer than one day? Can you fit everything you own in one truck or will you need two? Are your valuables secure and protected? Do you have adequate insurance in case something goes wrong?
All of these are the sorts of hidden fees that local and long distance moving companies factor into the cost of their services. And the best cross-country moving companies can take advantage of economies of scale that aren’t available to you as an individual home or business owner.
Don’t forget about all the hidden fees that can add up. You may find it more economical to hire one of Calgary’s best long-distance moving companies. Your wallet will thank you!
Your Time is Valuable
Uprooting is never easy. There are a lot of mental and physical strains that moving can cause. Have you considered the value of your own precious time? You should be resting and relaxing as you adjust to your exciting new life circumstances, not tearing out your hair as you pack up everything you own.
Call Big Joes Movers LTD and we’ll take care of all the details. If you still don’t believe that hiring the pros is the cheapest way to move long distance, give us a call. When you give us all your information we’re pleased to offer a free relocation estimate. And that comes with no obligation. But we know you’ll be happy with our swift and superior service.
