Knowing When to Call in the Experts
Moving home can incur a number of expenses, be these; estate agent fees, solicitors fees or the completing of works on the new property. It is understandable that some opt to try to conduct the removal process themselves with a view to saving money. However, it is estimated that around 45% of those that attempt a ‘DIY house move’ don’t opt to do it a second time!
It is important to know when to call in the experts. What, on first glance, may seem a cost saving decision, can often backfire in the longer term. Removal companies benefit from decades of experience of organising the logistics of moving house and do this day in, day out.
Professional surveyors can accurately access the volume of goods you wish to move. From this they can appoint the correct size van and the appropriate number of operatives. To the untrained eye, it can be hard to judge the volume of goods and can result in the wrong size van being booked and the amount of labour required being misjudged. A professional removal team are highly trained in packing and lifting/ carrying techniques. Opting for friends and family members to carry out this for you, can be an enormous risk, both to their wellbeing and to your household possessions.
Moving day itself, can also be a rather unpredictable day. A professional moving company will have the great advantage of having the experience of dealing with every possible eventuality during their years of operation. Furthermore, a professional removal company will be able to offer storage facilities should you require it as an interim measure and then move your items out of storage when the new property is ready.
