The average American will move somewhere around 12 times in their life, whether that be just across the street, to a whole new city, or even a whole new state. Moving is hectic, it's stressful, and it can be costly, especially whole home moves. According to the American Moving and Storage Association, the average cost of moving in your home state is $1,170. Because moving isn't cheap, you might be tempted to recruit some friends and do it yourself.

If you're planning to coerce your friends into helping you move into a new home or apartment, then we have one simple moving hack that will ensure moving day is a 100% hassle free experience.

It's simple: hire a moving company.

Fortunately for grown ups everywhere, there really is a simpler way to move. Enlisting the aid of a residential moving company is a good way to start. This might seem obvious, but too many twenty-somethings try to go it alone on moving day.

Never hired a moving company before? Here's how it works:

First, you need to have everything boxed and ready to go before the movers arrive. If there's anything you aren't keeping, you have three options: arrange for trash removal, donate your extra stuff to charity, or put it in storage facilities -- you can even have the movers deliver to the storage facility to help out. In fact, the best moving companies also offer storage facilities for their clients.

If you want to have less stress on moving day, then enlisting the help of local movers is a must. Not only are you more likely to damage yourself and your possessions during a DIY move, but you're also more likely to damage the walls or floors of your home. And because any legitimate moving company is required to carry insurance, you don't have to worry that any of your valuables will be damaged in the move. So long as you pack everything securely, professional movers will know how to transport them without any problems.

The more stuff you have to more, the more sense it makes to hire a residential moving company. Rather than wasting money and energy making dozens of trips back and forth, your movers will take everything to the new location in a truck. Enlisting their help can be a lifesaver on your back and your head. After hiring professional movers for the first time, most people can't imagine moving without them ever again.

So if you're moving to a new home and worried about the hassle of doing it all on your own, don't be. Reach out to a professional moving company and enlist the help of the individuals that make moving your items their business. You'll save time and headaches that way.

Give yourself (and your friends) a break; hire movers. After all, all the grown ups are doing it.
