Moving house, or changing business premises, is a highly stressful time. There is so much to get done and such a limited time to do it! Many people choose to take care of the entire move themselves, from packing to transportation and even storage. While it is definitely possible to do all this yourself, it can be a real organizational nightmare when you least need the stress. Thankfully, there are removal companies out there who can take this stressful burden for you.
Below, you will find just a few reasons why you should consider using a professional removal company for your next big move.
There is packing and then there is expert packing – there is a world of difference between the two! While we have all probably packed boxes before, too often this is done poorly, or incorrectly. This can lead to boxes which are difficult to move and broken items. To avoid this, professional removal companies offer a packing service.
When you engage a removal company with a packing service, they will come to your home and do all the tedious packing for you. They will ensure that all your valuable possessions are properly prepared for transportation, in a way which greatly reduces the chances of damage. The great benefit of this, is that if your items are packaged by the removal company, any damages that result from inadequate protection will be covered by their insurance. If you were to pack the boxes yourself and your items became damaged as a result, then this insurance does not apply.
Another great benefit of having professional removalists take care of your move, is the detailed documentation which they complete whilst packing up your household or business. They will create an inventory of all items packed and will generally indicate which boxes you can find specific items in – this makes unpacking a breeze!
Of course, no removal can be complete without transportation. Removal companies have specialised and often purpose built removal vans, ready to take your possessions to their new home. This is a far better solution than doing it yourself. Not many people are equipped for a big move and rely on utes, or open trailers to move their household effects. This can lead to serious problems if there is a sudden storm, or if items are not fastened correctly. Every weekend around the country you can see items smashed on the roadside that have fallen from trailers and other private vehicles – don’t let this be the fate of your treasured furniture! Using a professionally outfitted removal van takes away a lot of the risk when moving.
If you don’t want to move into your new house straight away, it can be a struggle getting your items in and out of private storage facilities. When using a removal company however, this is no big deal. All quality removal companies have secure on site storage. They can hold your furniture and other items just like a storage unit and then deliver it to your new house on demand – how easy is that!
