Many relocating New Haven households are packing up themselves for out-of-state moves rather than hiring professionals, due to increased housing costs and interest rates. A new guide from the experts at Movers.com explains which common possessions are risky for individuals to move by themselves.
Elevated housing prices, interest rates, and commodity costs are driving many individuals to attempt "do-it-yourself" moves from their New Haven family homes. A new guide from the relocation experts at Movers.com lists 10 items amateurs should not attempt to move without professional assistance due to damage or injury risks.

Professional moving costs have risen more than 10 percent above last year’s prices, according to a recent article in the New York Times. Demand for services seems to be increasing at the same time as supply costs are rising, leading to the double-digit jump. In some areas, up to 55 percent of jobs are booked about 24 hours before the move - indicating individuals may have planned DIY moves but opted for help when confronted with deadlines and logistics.
Households planning to move particularly challenging items interstate can reduce stress by planning ahead, according to the guide. Many items on the list frequently result in destruction, injury, or accidental harm to other possessions as a result of novice moves, experts report.
Heavy, expensive items like pianos and pool tables can easily damage walls, floors and stairs when moved by amateurs. Repairs to both can be expensive - rivaling the cost of moving services. That’s not to mention the risk of physical injuries and potential delays to the relocation.
Ironically, moving exercise equipment can be hazardous, according to the guide. Even lighter-weight treadmills and ellipticals are awkward, leaving amateurs prone to back injuries. Many folded pieces have crevices for pinching fingers, which makes further loading painful.
The guide includes a few smaller surprise recommendations, such as hiring professionals to move items like wine bottles and prized plants. Vintage wines don’t take up much room, but they can be more valuable than larger possessions - and can ruin everything around them if they break. Likewise, plants can be temperamental and damage nearby items with soil and water.
The pros at Movers.com understand the reasons individuals attempt DIY moves - it’s one reason they publish so many relocation guides. They do, however, recommend hiring professionals for these specific items, since the goal is for possessions to arrive at their new home functional and intact.
“When it comes time to move, whether you hire a mover to help you pack or choose to do it all by yourself, it is entirely your decision. However, some things are too difficult for the average non-professional to handle safely,” a company representative said. “There's no shame in asking for a little help, so if you have one of the items on this list, consider hiring moving help.”
