While you might think that hiring your own removal van and moving furniture will save you money, you can’t then be sure that your belongings will arrive at their new location in the same condition as you left them! It’s true that you will save money by not hiring a professional removal service, but this could end up costing you more in the long run. What happens if you’re carrying your fridge with a friend and whilst trying to heave it up onto the van, it falls from your grasp and breaks? What if you don’t properly wrap your upholstered leather sofa and find that it has been torn during transit? These accidents do happen and can happen to you, which would in effect cause you to spend a whole lot more than you would have by calling in the professional movers! To help you reach the right decision, here are the benefits of hiring professional furniture removals!When hiring a removal company with a stellar reputation, you can rest assured that your belongings and particularly larger items of furniture will be handled with the upmost care. Meanwhile, think about it for just a moment. If you decide to handle all your packing and furniture removals, you’ll need to make time to do so! However by hiring the experts, you can minimise interruption to your everyday life! They’ll also come equipped with all the essential packing materials, furniture coverings, plastic wrap etc. as well as the necessary dolly-trolleys on wheels to transport heavy items like your fridge or washing machine. They’ll be no need for you to try and lift heavy furniture and risk permanent back or knee damage, forcing you to rest during such a busy and hectic time!Most items of furniture are very expensive and often mean rather a lot to most people. Or they may be of sentimental value. Either way, you’ll want to make sure all your furniture is safely loaded and unloaded as well as transported to your new home. That’s just another reason why the job of moving house is best left to the professionals. They will take real care of your furniture and their experience and training means they’ll know exactly how to dismantle any items of furniture than be, in order to better store them in the moving van. Not only are they well versed in the art of packing and carrying, but they know exactly how to pack a van, to keep your fragile items and larger pieces of furniture from moving around during transit and therefore avoiding any damage.Meanwhile if you’re moving large and expensive special items like a piano, then you’d be wise to hire professional removal services. While you may think you have it handled, just consider if anything happened to your piano or even a baby grand? You’d be steeped in regret at not having hired a moving company for the job! Once you’ve hired the professional movers, you must then trust them and let them get on with their work. Everyone works better when they are not being watched or scrutinized, so while you shouldn’t be totally absent during the move, you don’t want to be offering advice where it’s not needed on where to place the washing machine in the back of the moving truck, or how to store the mattress! That’s not to say you can’t lend a helping hand. All moving companies will be grateful for an extra set of biceps, but just don’t stand in their way of giving you an exceptional service!
