Moving Yourself Or Hiring a Furniture Removalist

Recommended Posts

If you're moving, you'll need to figure out how you'll handle the entire process from start to finish: consider your furniture removal options for a local move, an in-state move, and if you're moving out of state, what alternatives there are. Most young people would prefer to complete the move with their own hands and a rental car. Others prefer to hire a professional moving company to do all the heavy lifting.

Advantages of moving yourself

Doing a furniture move yourself has many advantages. For starters, you'll always know who's to blame if any of your belongings get damaged during the move. Don't forget the wonderful pains associated with lugging all of your gear between two locations.

And don't forget to check if it's possible to do the whole move yourself. Can you move your sofa from its old place to a new one without causing havoc or damage to either place? Do you have enough energy to move box after box of heavy books?

Perhaps professional moving companies are a better option

Those who are strapped for time and those who are shy at the thought of all that trouble will pay double or triple what they would spend on their rental car. Professional moving companies will certainly make the situation much easier for you. So weigh both options; time vs money? What would you have more of?

Good furniture movers are sure to meet all your needs at an affordable price. A reputable company wants to maintain its reputation and therefore will hire the best to do the job well for you. You can rest assured that your belongings will be treated with the utmost care during the relocation process.

pack well

Pack the heaviest items in the small boxes. Just because you're not the one doing the heavy lifting doesn't mean you should make the biggest boxes as heavy as possible. Don't make the moving company's job harder than necessary, because that way they will make you happier. If they are injured, they cannot work for two weeks. The moral of the story is to be considerate. In any case, they wouldn't bother carrying a box they know is too heavy, so don't be surprised if that happens.

Be sure to secure the top and bottom of each box with tape. In this way, you have taken every precaution to ensure that your belongings are safely packed.

Light possessions should be placed in the large boxes. Pack your belongings according to the setting relative to the size of a box. Hanging clothes should be wrapped in plastic and then stored in a closet with a metal rail. Paintings should be placed in boxes that hug them tightly.

Please note that furniture should never be boxed. Items that are DIY kit products (such as those sold by Ikea) are generally not intended for transportation. They are often damaged during the move.

If you have the time and are willing to do the physical work, do the moving yourself. If not, there are plenty of professional movers willing to trade your energy for your money.
