Pros and Cons with DIY Moving vs Professional Removals Company

Deciding between Hiring Movers or a Do It Yourself Move plan, are moving companies worth it? DIY moving is a potential option for many, but let us help you make the right choice when moving home.

DIY Moving Property

Without essential skills and experience, moving home independently can be a hectic experience. Some individuals try to save costs by taking this challenge upon themselves and often injure their back, damage their vehicle (especially suspensions), goods and premises whilst moving belongings without professional help.

D.I.Y is extremely hard work, time-consuming and may be less cost-effective in the long run. Some take further shortcuts by not packing properly to save time, but fall victim to more hassle with damaged items. All for simply by not hiring a professional relocation company.

Hiring a Reputable Removals Company 

Your professional moving company will have the experience and reliability of an adept and meticulous procedure with all details being taken into account. A registered company with applicable experience will also run through everything with you beforehand so you can rest assured everything ensues the way you intended. Further advantages would be backup removal trucks and replacement movers with essential skills in an emergency.

Asking Friends or Family members when Moving

There are many people that can help you move like friends or relatives. This may be useful when you need help with packing boxes, but carrying out a home move could result in injuries to your friends or to your furniture which may cause you to regret your decision as property can also get damaged. If something comes up and your friend or relative is unable to make it, you may be left helpless with a deadline to move.

Most DIY Move Results

In fact, with 90% of DIY Move cases that we have seen, friends and relatives do not turn on up on the move day, simply because they know very well how physically demanding this task is. All would be regretted when something goes wrong, Tom would run off, Dick would not reimburse you and Harry would just say sorry in a hurry.

Emergency House Removal Service

However, with Elephant Removals, all decisions are made mutually with the customer with guaranteed results, so all you have to do is watch us go.

Packing Materials vs Your Goods

When moving yourself compare the prices of materials vs your precious goods. Try to start as early as possible, as packing in a hurry is a serious mistake, remembering to scope the removal boxes to use the space effectively. Keeping a track on what is packed will also save you the worry of thinking you have lost something. If all these points is a hassle to remember instead arrange a reputable moving company London based to do everything for you with an expert packing service, including dismantling and reassembling of certain items due to the safety of the item, properties and individuals around.
