You Can’t Lift It
Bench pressing 250 pounds at the gym doesn’t guarantee that you and your roommate can figure out how to move that basement fridge up the steps and out two skinny doorways. Professional movers will have seen lots of moving scenarios and can quickly devise a plan to move difficult and heavy items. Getting stuck with a sharp-edged stove staring at you in the middle of a flight of stairs isn’t a pleasant experience. If you’ve completed the checklist of todo’s prior your move, then you’re ready to call out the pros.
Professionals Are Quick
Experience in the field is invaluable. Movers who’ve been in business for years have built proper work habits. Once professionals come at your address, they’ll instantly get to what is most necessary and avoid doing any extra work that will slow them down.
They’ll load the truck with your belongings at least twice faster than an average person who moves on his own and doesn’t know any loading techniques. A non-professional will also find it really hard to carry moving boxes and heavy furniture properly.
You Don’t Have a Van
We can’t be 100% sure you don’t have a van but most people don’t drive a van on a daily basis. If use a standard vehicle, you’ll find it really hard to fit your furniture inside. Moving out will take you at least 5 or 10 courses even if you get everything properly disassembled. In the end, you’ll realize that hiring professional movers is in fact a budget solution.
You Will Save Time & Money
A large-scale move, as well as the packing process for it, along the rest of the preparations required, can take you an entire day to complete. If you’re alone. it may even take a few days or up to a week before the job’s fully done.
According to the man and van experts from the UK Fantastic Removals company, you can’t skip any essential steps of the move such as decluttering, packing, labeling, securing electronics, furniture, taking it apart and more. If you to do this by yourself, sooner or later you will end up realizing that you’re not prepared for it. Spending finances and time in order to get anything you need for the job will eventually cost you more than hiring a company to help.
You’ll Get an Insurance for Your Belongings
Your belongings will be safe in the hands of professionals. Specialized movers pack them according to the specifications of the move and if the company is trustworthy, it will give you full insurance when items have been packed by its employees.
Get Additional Care for the Property
Most moving companies can also help you leave the property in good condition. If you live on rent, your tenancy contract will most certainly require you to clean the property before moving. It’s a tedious task and most tenants prefer to book a move out cleaning service for the purpose. If you book one with the moving company you’ve chosen, you may even benefit from a discount.
It’s a DIY world, right? You may feel that moving is one of those chores anyone can do. Unfortunately, having to handle your interior as a couple or having to cope with pet friendly living can be challenging to achieve. Relocating is not just a matter of packing stuff up and loading it onto a truck, taking it off and putting it in place at your new apartment.
Our advice, however, is to slow down and think about it first before you are frantically calling moving companies at the last minute to help you finish the job you shouldn’t have started. There’s no reason to wait, as you can always get a moving estimate for free and start the planning immediately.
Disconnection Looks Complicated
While some things simply plug in, others may be connected directly to the power source. An experienced moving team will know when it’s time to call in a professional electrician. Sure, you can turn off circuit breakers and cut cords, but then what do you do when you want to reconnect that item?
There is an Art to Properly Packing a Cube or Truck
Those famous last words, “It ain’t goin’ anywhere,” have been uttered by many DIY movers, but when the truck or cube is opened at the end of the move, and broken chairs, desks and mirrors come tumbling out, DIY no longer looks like such a great idea — save that for HGTV. A lot of problems can arise while on the road, and if furniture is not tightly and almost scientifically packed, damage can occur. Pro movers know how to avoid disasters, but unfortunately you most-likely don’t. And they’ll also ensure a great liability plan — a huge benefit to you.
The Tools You’ll Need
Not only do experienced movers carry the tools for disassembling items like beds and desks, they will do the work knowing they have to reassemble the items at the end of the move. Pros also have the proper hand-trucks and dollies that facilitate safety. Sure, you can get these at the truck rental place, but do you really know how to use them?
Way Less Stress
Sometimes you get what you pay for, and if you don’t want to pay for professional movers, you will pave the way for unnecessary stress. You’ll have to find and book a truck, pick it up, figure out all the supplies you’ll need, and last but not least – find help. It can be extremely dangerous for you to move large appliances up and down stairs on your own. Imagine how you cringe every time you scrape a wall, hope everything fits, and try to get it all done on time. People that have tried a DIY move once usually swear that they will never attempt something like that again.
You can see that hiring professional movers is good idea, but this doesn’t mean you can’t make the whole process easier buy doing some preliminary boxing and organizing. You can even disconnect unpluggable appliances and have everything as ready to go as possible.
By letting pros handle the big stuff like storage details and the loading up process, though, you’ll have taken positive steps to ensure a good moving experience.
