Injuries You May Sustain Without Movers in Denver CO

Have you ever wondered why so many people hire professional movers in Denver, CO, instead of trying to move on their own? Hiring movers is more convenient, but that’s not the only reason. Moving can be dangerous if you don’t have a professional’s help. Here are some of the injuries that you can sustain if you try to move your belongings without the pros:

Back Injuries

The boxes filled with all of your belongings will be much heavier than anything that your life regularly. Even if you’re strong, it’s possible to seriously injure yourself while moving boxes if you don’t use the right lifting technique. To prevent injuries, it’s important to keep your back straight and bend at the hips and knees only when squatting down to pick up a box. Once you have a good grip on the box, begin to stand up by slowly straightening your legs. Ensure to keep your back straight at all times so you don’t accidentally injure the soft tissue in your lower back. Unfortunately, many people aren’t familiar with the proper lifting technique, so they injure themselves by moving everything independently. Learn the proper lifting technique here.

Foot Injuries

Getting a good grip on a cardboard box can be difficult–especially if it’s heavy and you’re struggling to hold the weight. As a result, many people who choose to move without the help of a professional are at risk of dropping these heavy boxes onto their feet. Depending on the weight of the box, it’s possible that you could break a bone in your toes or feet, which is a painful injury that can make it difficult to finish moving on your own. This is especially common among people who choose to wear flip-flops or open-toed shoes while moving since their feet are not protected in these shoes. But unfortunately, injuries can happen even if you are wearing the right type of shoe if the box is heavy enough.

Other Injuries

Some boxes are bigger than others, and if you attempt to move a fairly large box, its size could make it hard for you to see the path in front of you. This means if there is an obstacle in your way or a sudden elevation change, you may lose your footing and fall to the ground. People who slip and fall can suffer serious injuries–especially if they hit their head or land on their back. Depending on how you land, you may sustain head injuries, spinal cord injuries, broken bones, or soft tissue damage. To prevent these traumatic injuries, work with a professional who knows how to move boxes safely.

These guys were great. Very careful with my furniture and they were quick. Not one ding on the walls either. I highly recommend them. I will be using them again in the future.

I don't know what to say other than thanks Eden's! They helped me move twice now and both were smooth as you can expect a move to be. A broken cup or two but what do you expect, they moved my stuff across state lines and I have broken more moving myself, that is just part of the process. They were great about going over the coverage options too to ensure I was covered for any damages. Always get insurance for a move! Thanks again Eden's, I will recommend you to anyone!

The movers showed up on time, and did an amazing job dealing with some very difficult pieces of furniture. They moved things that I thought would be impossible to move. They worked hard and fast and were very careful with my walls nothing was scratched. Good work! Thanks!!

Highly recommended movers! We hired Edens movers for a local move in Lakewood CO and they did an outstanding job. The movers were professional and friendly and the entire move went smoothly without any trouble. From the start they were organized and clear and the price was more than fair. Thank you for your great job!

Best prices and great to work with. You have to wait a little bit longer for your stuff but they were very upfront about the time frame, gave us a range, and called a few days ahead of time. Our move was difficult because our stuff was in storage (we had already moved and due to another moving company dropping the ball we could not get back to finalize boxing everything up). They did a great job once they arrived organizing our stuff in storage carefully. I would highly recommend.

Save yourself the time and trouble of trying to do it yourself or hiring questionable movers - I fully recommend Eden's Moving Services to anyone who needs professional moving services! I used their long distance moving service, their storage service and their packing services and they did a great job. The teams where very professional and the entire move process was perfect.

My household has used Edens four times now with perfect results. The moved a massive Piano off the second floor – safe and quick. I hired them again with my recent long-distance move. The crew showed up on time, they were quick and careful with my stuff, and they made sure everything got placed where I'd need it.. Great experience once again. Will definitely use them again. extremely recommended.
