While most of us cringe at the very thought of moving house, hiring a local professional removalist to help can be just the ticket to a stress-free moving experience. So if you’re on the fence about whether or not to call a professional for help, below are some great reasons to hire a professional to help with your upcoming house move.
Stress Less & Save Time
Moving house can be a very busy and stressful time for most people. You can’t simply blink and just have your things magically appear at your new address. There’s lots to organise from packing your belongings into moving boxes to cancelling utilities at your current place and cleaning your old place – not to mention the need to organise the actual moving day itself.
Calling on a removalist to help with your packing and moving needs is an easy way to leave the burden of a house move in the capable hands of professionals – so you can stress less while saving time in the process.
Save On Overall Costs
While some people opt for a DIY house move, sometimes this option can actually end up costing you more than you bargained for. A DIY house move can sometimes mean having to make multiple trips if you are moving your belongings with a ute or car. And with the price of fuel ever on the rise, having to make multiple moving trips can end up costing you more in fuel in the end.
At the same time, with a DIY house, move there’s the potential for damage to your furniture or belongings if you haven’t taken the necessary steps to properly move them safely and securely. So save yourself the effort and money by hiring a professional mover to take care of your house move for you.
Professional movers have quite a lot of experience when it comes to moving people’s possessions. Doing this sort of work day in and day out means they know the fastest and easiest way to safely move your furniture through tight spots and stairways. They are also better equipped at preventing damage to your belongings.
Keep Your Belongings Safe
Unless you have very few possessions and furniture, moving house will quite often require a bit of careful planning and preparation ahead of moving day. From carefully packing your belongings into moving boxes to protecting your furniture by carefully wrapping delicate items in bubble wrap and plastic sheeting, it can take many hours to get your possessions packed ahead of moving day.
Hiring a team of professionals to carefully pack your belongings and take the correct steps to protect your furniture will not only keep them safe during transit, but also minimise the potential for damage – offering you peace of mind.
Avoid Heavy Lifting
Moving professionals are used to moving bulky, heavy furniture pieces day in and day out. And with experience like that, they know the safest and best ways to prevent injuries to themselves as well as damage to your possessions.
On the other hand, for the majority of us who don’t move house daily, there’s always the potential of causing a serious injury and breakages to our precious possessions. Which is why it’s probably best to leave the heavy lifting to the professionals.
The Right Equipment
Moving house requires specialist equipment to assist with handling large bulky items including the moving truck itself to trolley dollys, heavy moving blankets, quality moving boxes and bubble wrap. Hiring a professional removalist and packer when moving house means not having to worry about purchasing specialised moving equipment – saving you on costs and the need to go out of your way to purchase these additional moving supplies.
Storage Options Available
Can’t move everything with you to your new location? No problem! Most removalist companies offer flexible and secure furniture storage solutions for long and short-term needs. The beauty of this service is that it allows you to easily settle into your new space without having to worry about your safely stored possessions in the meantime.
