We all know how stressful moving house can be: you’ve been to the new place a number of times and you can’t wait to go, but you’re still anxious about all your possessions and whether they’ll get there in one piece.
When trying to move house on a budget, many hire a large van and transport all their items themselves, but this ends up adding the stress and anxiety – and ultimately hugely impacts on the amount of time the move takes.
There are inevitably issues when it comes to transporting larger and heavier goods like pianos and fitness equipment, and if your journey is a long one then your fuel expenses will rack up very quickly.
Many people think that hiring a removals company is expensive and actually adds to the stress of a big move, but in the case of some companies this is far from the truth.
How hiring a removal company can remove your furniture and your stress
One of the biggest concerns people have when hiring an outside company to help with a move is the care taken over their possessions – an outside company couldn’t know how much that antique lamp meant to your grandmother, and you fear it will be thrown into the back of the van. When you hire a removals company you need to know that they will treat your possessions as their own, with careful consideration taken when transporting your cherished items from home to home.
Another stress many fear is that when the big van arrives outside to start moving your things you won’t be ready for them – that there will be items waiting to be packed and the company will start charging late fees or will simply not start packing the van until you’re finished, putting more pressure on you to hurry. You need a company who will assist you with your packing – even before removal day if you require – to help the day go more smoothly and to ease your stresses.
But what if you’re downsizing, or simply haven’t worked out where everything will fit yet and you don’t want to move every possession into your new home straight away? Then you need to find a storage solution – somewhere with variable sized units so you only hire the space you require, somewhere with 24 hour security and most importantly somewhere with carefully designed and well ventilated units to keep your personal belongings in a safe and non-damaging environment.
If you can get all the above in a well-run business which is trustworthy and reliable then that leaves you to concentrate all your attention on the important things – like who gets the biggest bedroom.
