Removing from your current home is exciting but also a stressful act. You have two possibilities – removing by yourself or hiring a removal company. They both have their advantages and disadvantages. I am going to show why you should choose the first option – counting on yourself.
The first reason is because you will save much more money if you move by yourself. That is one of the main reasons people prefer not to use the services of removal companies. Considering all the expenses that you will need to do, such as purchasing a new home, paying for important utilities, travelling expenses, and others, you may not have money left to pay for a removal company. That is why you can hire a van, or ask a friend who has one. This will save you a lot of money.
Another advantage you have when moving on your own is the fact that you can do it when you want to. You won’t have to comply with anyone else but yourself. You will be the person saying when to do it and how to it. This means that you can do as many journeys as you want to your new home, moving small thing, for which you won’t need a van. You can do it at a time that is convenient to you, when you won’t have to take a day off at work, or when you won’t have to take care of the kids.
Also, you will be in control. It is easier to do it on your own, because you will know what is in every box, because you packed everything. You can open and reopen the boxes any time you want, and you can order your possessions however you want to. When you are in control, you can throw away unnecessary things, which even a professional removal company wouldn’t have thrown away, because they wouldn’t have known. You can make as many trips as you want to your new home. Of course, this costs money, but if the location of your new place is close to your current home, there will be no problem.
After you take care of your small possessions, it is time to load up the hired van with the bigger ones, such as fridge, washing machine, TVs, computers, beds, tables, and many others. You can ask friends or family members to help you in this initiative. You know that it is impossible to move heavy things like those on your own.
Yes, moving by yourself is harder and more stressful than if you use a removal company, but it will save you a lot of money, and a lot of stress, which they may cause you. You cannot know what removal guy will fall in with you. There are many unprofessional guys that can cause a lot of damage on your belongings. Many of them don’t know how to do their jobs and how to correctly use the equipment. So, if you count on your strengths only, you will be more certain and calm. There will be many things to take care of, but at the end, when the job is done, you will be very satisfied and pleased with yourself.
