Moving into a new home should be one of the most exciting moments of your life, especially when you’ve saved up your hard earned money to purchase a new property outright. However, moving home can be quite a stressful experience for some, particularly if you have little help when moving your belongings from your old home to your new one. In situations such as this, you should consider whether moving everything yourself is worth the hassle or whether you should hire a removal specialist to do it for you. In favour of the latter, here are 4 reasons why you should hire a removal specialist.
Above all, hiring a removal specialist to help you move homes will save you plenty of time in the long run. When you consider all that’s involved with in moving into a new property – packing, transporting, unpacking, returning vehicles used (unless you have your own, but it could take more than one trip) – the process could take you longer than you might expect. However, by using a removal specialist, you’ll save plenty of time and effort having someone move your belongings for you. Not only that, but if you opt to find a professional packing service too, then you’ll spend very little time actually packing everything away yourself.
Moving home can be a stressful time in some cases, especially if you’re trying to take everything on yourself or if something doesn’t quite go to plan. Unless you’ve prepared everything you need to move in good time, you may experience some last minute struggles such as not being able to rent a truck or van on the day you’re needing to move your possessions for example. Aside from this, some people are unable to legally drive and so many not even own a car, so arranging for someone to drive you and your belongings might prove to be tricky. As such, you can avert any difficulties you may encounter by using a removal specialist to help you move to your new property, as they’ll likely own a van and have personnel that can assist you with loading and unloading items. Also if you are planning on moving goods into a storage facility, you want the items stacked properly to avoid anything coming loose and breaking.
As a top level observation it would appear that hiring a removal specialist costs more than just hiring a van, but if you only opt for the van then you’ll have to move everything yourself. In addition, whilst van hire might on the surface look like a cheaper option, the general price shown on many websites is for the hire of the vehicle and there can be other extras added onto the top of your total bill. As such, when you consider the total cost of van hire (alongside needing to move everything yourself) and that you’ll have to return the van to its original location, the cost can quickly become even greater as you may have to pay for fuel for your vehicle or get a taxi for the return journey. Ultimately, it’s likely going to be more cost-efficient to hire a removal specialist and you won’t even have to lift a finger!
One of the greatest benefits of hiring a removal specialist is simply because it’s more convenient and far less hassle than doing it yourself, especially if you have a family with children. Moving home is a time that should be an exciting experience for the family, but it’s inconvenient having to pack everything and then unpack everything again. Ideally, the process should be as swift as possible so you can save your energy for making your house beautiful, which is where having the convenience of someone else take care of it all is the true value. After all, there’s nothing easier when moving home when all you essentially have to pack is yourselves!
In short, moving home should be a time of excitement and happiness, not one of stress and worry. If you don’t have all that much to actually move from one property to another, then it might be easier for you to move everything yourself. However, if you have quite a large amount of belongings then it might be worth considering hiring a removal specialist to save you time and money, so why not get in touch to see how we can make your house move as stress-free as possible.
