Do you hire a professional removalist or do it yourself? This is a question that many customers struggle with when planning their move. It’s not surprising that moving house can be expensive. People often consider the work they could do.
What should you think about when deciding whether to hire a removal company or rent a van to do it yourself?
Do I need to hire a removalist?
Yes, if you have the budget to hire a professional removalist company. Although it may seem cheaper, there are many reasons why hiring a professional removal company might be a better choice for you and your family. These are our top reasons to hire a Cornwall removals company.
1. Moving companies can help you save time.
It takes time to move house. It takes time to pack, move and unload your belongings.
Professional removal companies help people move every day. They are experts at packing! You’ve probably moved before and know how tedious packing can be. It’s especially difficult if you have to fit it all in with your job or children’s lives.
Loading: Consider how much time it takes to load and pack a small van. (Are you good at Tetris?) You may need to load several cars, particularly if the items are difficult to move (how did that delivery company manage to get that couch in there again?) Plus the trips back and forth for unloading, loading, and unpacking if you try to do it yourself.
There are many other factors that can delay or take away from the packing and loading process. There might be furniture that is difficult to lift, valuable or delicate items that need extra protection, or weather conditions that are not as favorable. This can lead to delays and make it more stressful.
You can trust your mover to take care of everything. All of this information will be taken into consideration when planning your move. This will ensure that the appropriate resources and time are allotted to ensure that everything runs smoothly.
2. Professional movers are experts at packing fragile, valuable and precious items.
There are many things in our homes that are valuable, sentimental, heavy or delicate. Just the thought of moving them all from one place to the next can cause stress. A professional removal company can help you avoid this. They will have the experience and knowledge to safely pack and transport your items securely and will be able to provide insurance to cover any damage or loss.
You will be provided with all necessary packing materials to ensure that everything is protected.
3. Moving with young children can be a lot easier.
Moving house can be stressful enough. But adding a child or two to the equation will make it even more difficult. Even the most sane parent can be overwhelmed by the task of packing, finding the right items to find in the middle of the night and keeping them out of reach.
A professional removal company may be able to help you with some of these tasks. It takes care of the packing and loading so you can concentrate on other more important tasks. Many removal companies offer unpacking services. Others have extra handymen or housemaids who can help you with all the details such as hanging pictures, shelves, fitting light fixtures, cleaning out your old house, and packing kitchen items into cabinets. This allows you to focus on setting up and getting settled in.
4. If your move situation is susceptible to change or problems arise, it could be easier to deal with them.
Moving from A to B is not always as simple as it seems. You’ve probably moved before and know that even the best-organized moves can be complicated or unexpected.
Temporary accommodation is a good option for moving
You might need to rent accommodation while you look for a house to purchase, or you may be moving in with your friends while your dream home is being built. Or maybe your chain has become stalled. It doesn’t matter what the reason is, you will be faced with one problem: how to deal with all your belongings while you are in transition. Although you may not be moving your house directly, there are many reputable removal companies that offer storage services. You’ll be able to rest assured that your goods will be properly packed and handled.
Last-minute challenges and problems on the move
Moving day problems can be difficult. Removal company crews and managers are trained to identify potential problems and address them quickly. You can focus on other things, such as finding a place to park your lorry at the new house or repairing an item that was damaged in the rush to pack.
5. Are you already stressed? Moving can be stressful enough without professional help.
Moving house can be stressful. It’s possible that you have been going through months, if not years, of stressful negotiations and anxiety to find a buyer and your new home. You have probably had enough of trying to get solicitors to respond to you and enduring new fees and dates that keep falling ….. We doubt that you had an easy time renting. After all, the viewings have finished and all the hoops are cleared by the landlords, we bet you are pretty stressed.
If you feel like this, the idea of moving into your new home is exciting. But the task of getting there is not so exciting. This is the step that you can leave to the professionals and do not need to be involved in. You can have your home at your old house and your new home in one day. All you need to do is get in your car and drive there, and point to the places you want. For a no-obligation quote, get in touch with a moving company.
