Saving Time & Money
When wanting to cut costs on moving, the first option that comes to mind is to do-it-yourself. However, there are a few good reasons why hiring professional removalists to do the heavy lifting for you is recommended.
1. Save Your Back
Can you really take care of the heavy lifting? Are you fit enough? Do you know the right technique? Professional movers have been trained to do this job regularly and correctly. They know the right way to pick up heavy boxes and furniture, so that they will not hurt their back or blow a disc.
If you do it yourself, you might end up hurting yourself. You spend money on physical therapy and you lose potential earnings because you have to skip work.
2. Spare Your Friends the Trouble
I’m sure friends would like to help, but it’s possible that they have other more important things to do. Also, as already argued in point number 1, are they really fit and ready to take on the task? What if they get injured in the process? I believe it’s just fair that you pay part of the medical expenses.
3. Save Time
Time is gold. If you want to put your precious time into more productive work, then leave the removal job to an expert moving company. Take care of other important matters associated with moving, such as switching utility providers, updating your address and subscriptions and preparing the new home for your arrival.
You also save time if you let the removalists pack your belongings. Their team can do the packing in a few hours or a day. If you do it, it would probably take days or weeks to finish.
Professional removalists have the equipment and tools necessary for disassembling furniture and making loading and unloading boxes and bulky furniture fairly easy. Without all these tech gadgets, it would seem like an impossible task for you.
4. Save on Damage Costs
In case you break or damage something during your move, you pay for its replacement. But professional movers have insurance coverage for such incidents. They break your china or your TV, they take care of the replacement.
