That time has come. Congratulations are in order as you’re about to move!
After you’ve sorted all the paperwork, financing, surrounding areas, services and the nearest take-away restaurant, you can almost see light at the end of the tunnel.
However, there is still one very important task to consider. The actual move.
The question will quickly arise and have you considering if you should take matters in your own hands or trust the professionals to do it for you.
Both approaches have their arguments in favor and against them, but we will let you decide what suits you best.
The approach where you take care of your own move is as valid as any other.
You know your belongings better than anyone else. You have purchased most – if not all – of them and therefore can valuate each and every single item from a financial and emotional perspective.
A move is always a great chance to get rid of things that you planned to get rid before but for some reason haven’t. You may give them away or do a yard sale before the day comes as very often many items won’t transition to you to your new home.
Moving homes yourself does come with some logistics issues with the first consideration being whom will actually be making the move and how.
Transitioning everything you own from one home to another can be an incredibly difficult task.
Even if you can convince friends or family to help you, there are too many things that will need packing, carrying and transporting. There are heavy and bulky items such as mattresses, furniture, endless boxes that also pose a risk to your health when you handle them.
This task will involve a lot of time, using whatever means at your disposal, buying endless materials to protect your valuables and, most likely, rent a larger vehicle to take it all.
The main advantage is that you may save some money, but overall it may not be as much as you think when you consider all the time, hard work and difficulty involved.
A professional, however, is paid to ensure your move is made with a strategy in mind.
Great rates are available and you should consult a professional relocation Company before you make a decision.
Movers know exactly how to handle heavy items such as the ones described before and hold the means to pack everything safely and deliver it to your desired address.
While they do so, you won’t be risking your health, your personal relationships – as asking someone to help you move houses isn’t the same as inviting them over for lunch – and, most importantly, you will have time to focus on important things such as choosing the new drapes for that new place!
A professional will ensure that your items are packed in the correct manner and deliver them promptly to your new address.
Overall, when you consider both approaches, the time and money a professional may save you, alongside the preservation of your health and personal relationships may just be worth every single penny!
