For some people, when the opportunity arrives for them to move, some of them will get stuck in a decisive situation where they should either move themselves or hire a removal company.
Which one would you prefer?
Moving yourself does have its advantages and disadvantages, hiring a removal company is the same too.
On the safe side, hiring a removal company would be the more ideal route to take, lets take a closer look why:
1. Moving Companies is more the reliable option
Think of this, if you are choosing to go the alternate route by asking for the assistance of your friends and family, what experience or training do they have compared to a removal company? Removal companies train all their staff the correct techniques, so that you can be rest assured they will take care of your items. What experience would your friends and family have? Not that much experience will be the answer.
2. Quick and Efficient
You know you are using a reliable removal company, when they keep their promises by arriving on time to collect and deliver your items safely. As we mentioned in the earlier point, the staff are all trained with the correct techniques. If you had to time a removal team to your friends/family carrying heavy items, the removal team would achieve that goal difference quicker than your friends/family.
In terms of timing, when you decide to move yourself with the friends and family you know, usually these events will take the whole day. If you hire a removal company, you can be guaranteed that your move will be completed within a few hours.
Before you do choose to hire the services of any removal company, you will be requested to send through a inventory so that they can quote you on your load and the journey. After that you don’t have to stress about recording all the items yourself as they are being loaded and off loaded. This task now belongs to the truck driver, he will record each and every item that is loaded.
4. Health and Safety
For anyone moving, health and safety is always a crucial element. During moving, the risks of injuries occurring is very high. If you decide that you will rather move yourself, keep in mind that you don’t have the experience of a removal company. As we have mentioned a few times already, these guys are trained correctly. They know how to carry heavy items correctly.
5. No Issues
Think of this, if you have friends and family assisting you with packing, you will find that it can become very challenging and confusing. You will notice that items will be mixed. Unless you decide to pack yourself, this would be a more ideal route to take.
Alternatively, ask the removals team to do the packing for you. They carry all the correct packing equipment, and have the experience to pack items.
Conclusion: At the end of the day, it all falls in your hands to decide which route you will be taking. We do strongly recommend that hiring a removal company is better, but we do respect that circumstances do differ from one person to the next.
