8 Reasons Why It’s Worth Paying Professionals to Move Your Furniture
Moving is a stressful time for many people. It can also be rather expensive. One way a lot of people have saved on costs in the short term is through moving their own furniture, however, this may lead to higher expenses in the long run, for a number of reasons. Many people across Sydney, whether it’s in Sydney’s Inner West, or finding removalists in Western Sydney, Here are 8 reasons in favour of using a removalists service for your move.
Risk of Damage
Removalists do this work day in, day out. They know how to handle your heavy or fragile items. And they know how to stack them/ strap them in the truck so they are less likely to get damaged on the way. They know how to prepare and pack your electronic devices when moving. If you attempt to move your own stuff, you might find yourself dropping or damaging things.
Risk of Injury
Let’s face it, most of us don’t know how to lift or carry heavy or bulky items well. Most of us end up putting our back out, or spraining our ankles whilst moving house if we’re not careful. This won’t happen if we let the professionals do the heavy lifting and carrying!
Time is Money
So you think that you want to save money on your move? Consider the cost of petrol and tolls if you use your own car, plus hiring a van costs if you do this. The cost of taking days off work, or the potential damage caused to your possessions and your body by doing it, and suddenly these costs fully skyrocket. Get a high quality, reasonably priced removalist and you will actually SAVE money long term.
Those Pesky Stairs
The worst part is not getting your stuff out of your house or apartment. It’s not even getting it from your house to your new place. It’s when you have stairs or tight elevators to squeeze into. Get a removalist and you don’t have to be concerned with this!
Let’s be honest here. Sometimes things can get damaged or broken on the way. A removalist will have insurance to cover the costs of repairing or replacing if this does happen.
They Already Have All The Equipment
Wondering how to get your fridge safely up and down the stairs? Try the trolley that all removalists have with the tri-wheel structure making it a cinch. Not only this, but it means you can keep your fridge upright, and the fluids don’t mix up too much.
Faster, and More Efficient
As mentioned before, professionals have done this day in, day out. They know how to play the giant game of tetris to fit your stuff perfectly, and safely, on the back of their truck. They know how to lift and how to be quick. They’ve got all the right tools. They know how to take it all back off again.
It Removes All Of Your Stress
Moving is always a stressful time. If you have to organise your own hire truck, and move your own heavy items, you will find yourself becoming more and more stressful. You might miss things on your list of things to do for your move. However, if you can take this particular stress away, you can find yourself ticking through your to-do list with far less stress, and also taking less days off work, which, let’s face it, will reduce your stress levels when getting back to your email inbox at work!
We hope we’ve convinced you enough to allow yourself to hire a removalist, so that you can keep your move as stress free and smooth as possible!
