It may come as a surprise to some people but I enjoy the thought of moving home, not the stress of packing part that comes with it, because let’s be honest no-one enjoys packing up an entire house, but more about the fact that you get the chance to sort things out, have a clear-out and begin fresh.
It can be a wonderful time, finding things you had forgotten about or have been hunting for, for months, and reliving good times as you pack up memorabilia from vacations and special events.
For some people, however, it can be traumatic and this is because I believe, they may not have used the right removal company, to begin with, which can set the initial tone and mood for the move.

Hiring a professional company versus going it alone.
Trying to save costs is on everyone’s mind, but some things are just best left to industry experts, you may think you are cutting the price in half by asking old Joe from down the road to lend a hand with his mate, but effort and petrol don’t always come cheap.
Not to mention that you may need to provide a meal of sorts for the pair, and if anything broke during transit you will feel obligated to let it slide as opposed to making them pay for a new item.

3 Top benefits of using the experts.
- Efficiency. I wasn’t aware that a packing service was something removal companies offered until the one I chose mentioned it upon enquiring for a removal date and booking in a slot. We have so little time as it is with life in general so having them help was a huge sigh of relief, and they know how to do it with high efficacy too.
- Family. The household and extra-curricular activities can consume the hours in the day without you even noticing, trying to juggle and balance all that while organizing and arranging a house move sounds like a nightmare. Let them do the work while you keep an eye on the kids and put dinner on the table (after making lunch boxes of course).
- Wrapping. We may have wrapped hundreds of gifts in our lives but when it comes to fragile items and precious articles the pros know how best to keep them safe. They have the quality of materials and packages which seemingly fit your items like a glove better than you could ever have managed.
