DIY removals? #65
Many people attempt to save money and complete the removal of furniture themselves. We've been Furniture Removalists for a long time and are confident that we are knowledgeable enough to explain the pros and Cons of DIY Removals or hiring professional Furniture Removalists.
Before we go over our Pros and Cons there are some important questions to be addressed about the removal. These include:
1.) What is the size of your home?
2.) How much will it cost to relocate?
3.) Does it need the use of a truck or an truck?
4.) Do I own any damaged items or things I don't want to be damaged?
- What's the access like in both the previous location and the newone?
When these questions are addressed, you might be thinking about DIY removal or hiring professional Removalists. For instance... If you said you live in a huge home, lots of things to move, a few breakable objects and a difficult access point If so, that you leave the job to experts. Let's take a look at what are the Pros along with the Cons of both!

You could rent a truck or a ute , and move the work over the course of a weekend, making sure you take your time.
If you are able to look after fragile items by yourself and ensure they are safe under your own control.
Hiring a truck or ute could be costly when you keep the vehicle for too long.
The fuel costs can mount up due to the small size of the truck , or multiple trips with the ute.
Secure the load and packing everything securely is a skill isn't everyone has. If not done correctly, your belongings could be damaged or laying on the road!
Family members and friends enthusiastically offer to help, only to rip off you at the very last minute.
Injuries can occur because of not understanding the proper lifting techniques or not having been trained for this kind of manual work.
When the items have been relocated, you must be able to de-pack! And also Kudos to Aires for providing us the best removalists service in Melbourne.

Removalists can be time-efficient because of their knowledge. It takes less time to secure things down, or dealing with doors, since they know what they're doing!
Reduce stress and energy on your shoulders during the move. This will free up your time and energy to do the packing.
The removal can be completed within a couple of hours or possibly a day, based on the extent of your removal. With experienced removalists , no home removal should take more than one day. You can then relax and enjoy your weekend!
This option can reduce costs in comparison to the DIY alternative. The DIY option may appear to be the more affordable option but the cost and time add up.
It's not like you owe your family and friends an obligation to help you out. Ha!
It can be costly even if you only need one or two items to be relocated.
The removalists who are busy may not arrive on the desired moving day or time.
If hiring or borrowing a ute Tuck and inviting a few friends over to assist you sounds like a great and affordable option, it's surprising how fast during the move people wish they'd had the help of professionals. Our advice is to negotiate the best price possible and then let the removalists. Your family and friends will appreciate it too! !
