Deciding Between Hiring Removalists Melbourne VS DIY
When thinking of a house move, two things are there that will come to your mind. The first is where to move, and the second how we are going to do it. As a top-rated moving company, Removalists Melbourne is here to give you some advice on it. Both the options come with pros and cons. In this article, I am discussing each option in details. Let’s begin.
Hire Removalists Melbourne or not?
Many factors are there to take into consideration before making the decision.
* How much to move?
Well, I am talking about the nature of items to move and how much. If you have many items to move; including heavy furniture and antiques, then hiring a professional mover is advisable. Can we manage it ourselves? That’s the question you should ask yourself. Well, it’s not rocket science. You know what you have in your home and the nature of them. Can you drive the truck safely?
* How far to move
OK, now you have an idea of how much to move. If it’s just a town-to-town move (30 minutes drive?) Yes, you may have just a few items to move, but what if it’s an interstate move? Interstate moves are complex compared to town-to-town moves. So, if it’s an interstate move, then hiring Removalists Melbourne is advisable.
* Family situation:
Is your wife pregnant? How many kids do you have? I mean, if you are a family having 3-4 kids, then moving yourself can be a challenge. Moving with kids is a different topic, and I can write a complete article about it. Anyway, Removalists Melbourne blog has articles about the topic. On the other hand, do you have friends to get for help? Well, everybody has friends, but getting them to help you for a complete day is difficult today. If you can find help, then you can try DIY.
* Will do the packing?
Some people hire Removalists Melbourne just for packing. Hiring a professional mover for packing is a good option, but why don’t you hire them for a full-service? Yes, packing fragile items and antiques is not a piece of cake. Many people get it wrong there. Anyway, we have published many articles on packing tips and tricks. Finding quality packing supplies for the move is another challenge. If you hire a professional mover, they will do it efficiently, also; they use quality packing supplies for safety.
* What is the season?
Spring could be the best season to move. Summer is the busiest season, but moving in a hot climate is a challenge. Anyway, you can manage the both. Yes, autumn is also manageable. But how about winter? It’s the toughest season to move for sure. Extremely cold, the roads are slippery. Driving a truck in winter is a nightmare, and only a well-trained driver can do it safely. Think carefully and make the decision so. Am I going to drive the truck myself, or hire Removalists Melbourne?
Have you made the decision now? At Removalists Melbourne, we encourage customers to hire a professional mover for a full-service. Hiring a professional only for packing, and you managing the rest yourself will not work sometimes. Do your research before hiring a mover though.
