Hire a professional moving company or not?
If you’ve been thinking of moving and preparing, you probably have come across the thought of “Hmm, I could probably do this myself with a couple of friends.” This is quite normal. As informed consumers, we are accustomed to weighing thousands of options to determine the most beneficial option. In fact, depending on your circumstances moving your house or office on your own can be more beneficial.
If you can fit all your belongings in your suitcase or if you can manage to fit everything in your car this might be true. However, in most cases, it may be more beneficial for you to hire a professional moving company as you won’t be able to fit your fridge in your car, or your mattress in your suitcase.
What’s so good about hiring Melbourne moving professionals?
I’m glad that you asked!
1. Protect your belongings and keep them safe
Your hired muscles have knowledge and experience in safely moving your belongings, to protect them from damage. Whether it be your grand piano or a brand new fridge, professional movers have the knowledge to pack and unpack and load them and move them without damaging them.
2. Piece of mind from insurance
Be sure to ask whether your mover is insured because in unlikely event of damages, you aren’t just left with broken items or furniture. Of course, you can just hire a couple of guys from down the street, but what if your couch is destroyed or your new TV is damaged? It isn’t worth the risk and makes no sense for someone without professional knowledge, and insurance to handle your possession.
3. Less work for you
Surprise, surprise…. This one is very obvious. Professional Melbourne movers will do the heavy lifting for you so that you don’t have to. They move heavy and bulky items with relative ease and safety. If you like carrying fridges and washing machines on your back, I won’t stop you, but most people would choose to lift boxes over fridges and washing machines.
4. Time-efficient Melbourne moving professionals
As are probably aware by now, time is of the essence when moving. You have likely to set up a short window of time to have your items transferred from old to a new home. Professional movers move all kinds of items on a regular basis. A good team of professional movers know how to be efficient, get more done in less time so you don’t have to pay extra in rent. Experience and know-how is something that cannot be transferred, and if time is an important factor, professional movers will save plenty of time and shorten the moving time to a minimum. Saving time often saves you money!
If you were to pick a professional moving company like Easy Peasy Removals, you won’t get nasty surprises in the form of hidden fees such as call out and travel fees. Yes, some companies will charge you for the mover team’s travel to and from your home. With Easy Peasy Removals, there are no hidden costs, and you won’t have to worry about paying hundreds of dollars for just having to a team of movers show up at your door. With transparent cost information, you can better plan your budget and maintain a healthier financial. Always ask if there are additional fees before making a booking.
6. Control your cost and better plan your schedule
Hiring a professional moving company can bring priceless knowledge to your move. As professionals, knowledge accrues over time. Professional movers like Easy Peasy Removals can give you a sound estimate, allowing you to better schedule your time and be in control of your moving cost. It’s easy for a non-professional to underquote hours required for a move by a significant amount. Choose an experienced and knowledgeable company in order to be in better control of your schedule and finances.
7. Responsive and transparent service
Is your mover responsive with your questions and issues during or prior to the move? It is often overlooked and overshadowed by pricing and moving location. However responsive and transparent service is key to your successful move. Some movers couldn’t care less about questions you may have. Experienced movers will have many know-hows and an honest mover will share these with you free of charge (This, and other blog posts for instance).
Of course, giving our advice regarding questions or issues you’re experiencing may lead to shorter time spent moving. While some movers see it as advice well given to save customers money, other movers may see it as a waste of time or loss of opportunity. At Easy Peasy Removals, we take pride in putting customers first.
