Why going with a professional removal service is a good idea when moving


Moving homes or office buildings can be a stressful and lengthy process, often marked by furniture that doesn't fit in your car, friends that bail despite promising to help you on moving day, and what seems like dozens of back and forth trips between two or more locations, sometimes a great distance apart. While it may cost you more than doing it all on your own, hiring a professional removal service to do the majority of your moving for you can save you a world of headaches and unforeseen setbacks. Their expertise and training will mean the entire ordeal is smooth, speedy, efficient and safe for your possessions and furniture. In a little bit more detail, here's a few basic reasons you should consider enlisting the aid of a removal service.

You can cut out all of the little stresses

Removal services are about a lot more than just offering transport to relocate your furniture from one place to another. Depending on who you go with, you can also hire removal specialists to plan, organise and carry out all of your packing and unpacking. Having the extra muscle means you'll never have to concern yourself with exceptionally heavy furniture or boxes either. A removal service's professionalism is also particularly good for businesses that require handling of fragile objects. 

Moving becomes faster, safer and more efficient

The extra set of hands and the assistance of large and extremely secure removal trucks that can fit a lot more items in them than the old family SUV will make moving much faster and more effective than if you were doing it on your own. Rather than having to rely on fickle friends or multiple back and forth trips, you can do most, if not all, of your moving in a single go. The time you have left over at the end of the day should be great for settling in. Removal services also often specialise in long distance or interstate moves that would be somewhere between impractical and impossible for you to do on your own. 

You only have to pay for what you need 

Finally, hiring removal specialists will not set you back financially as much as you expect. Some removal services allow you to opt for what's called a backloading removal. These essentially require that you only pay for the space in a truck that your furniture and boxes take up and is a great option for families who don't have too many things they need relocating. Furthermore, if you're happy to do the packing and unpacking yourself, you can choose to only pay for the transportation.

Consult a variety of removal specialists to decide what's best for you. The best services allow you to tailor your moving process as specifically as you'd like.

Storing my stuff while I'm on exchange

I'm going on a year of foreign exchange, so I am moving all of my stuff into a storage unit until I get back so I can save money on rent. I don't have much money so I am trying to do this for as little money as possible as I want to make sure that I know the best way to pack things to save space and get the smallest possible unit. This blog has some of the tricks that I have picked up in packing my household in the most space-efficient way and should be useful for anyone else packing up a household for storage.
