If you need to move house soon, you should consider hiring one of your local furniture removalists to assist you. Continue reading to discover why.
There is almost no risk of your current house or new home sustaining damage during the moving process
If you and your other household members are not particularly strong and you do not have any tools or equipment that can make the process of lifting your furniture easier (such as lifting straps, for example), there is a very good chance that attempting to carry furniture out of your current property or into the new house without professional help will result in you dropping said furniture.
This could not only damage the furniture itself but could also potentially inflict damage on your current home or the new house.
For example, if a heavy dining chair slips out of your hands whilst you're carrying it across a hardwood floor, the impact of the chair landing on the floorboard could cause that board to chip or crack.
Similarly, if you try to walk through a narrow hallway whilst you and another family member are carrying a large table, and you lose your grip on the item midway through this journey, the table could hit the wall as it falls and, in doing so, could damage the wall plaster.
You would then not only have to incur the cost of repairing this damage but would also have to spend time arranging for a tradesperson to carry out the work. This is time that you could have otherwise spent unpacking your belongings and settling into your new property.
Conversely, if you hire a team of physically fit furniture removalists, who have access to top-quality lifting equipment, there is almost no risk of the any of the above-mentioned incidents occurring, as the removalists will have the physical strength, stamina and tools required to keep both your furniture and your house safe throughout the moving process.
You'll have more energy left for the unpacking process
Picking up and carrying heavy furniture is a physically strenuous task, which is likely to leave you feeling exhausted, even if you are quite a fit person.
This means that if you choose not to have furniture removalists assist you during your house move, you will probably be aching, tired and completely worn out by the time you reach the new property.
In this situation, it is highly unlikely that you will have any energy left to unpack your belongings. This could result in you having to live in a messy, disorganised house filled with unpacked boxes for the first couple of days after moving into your new home. This, in turn, could make it harder for you to relax and settle into the new house.
However, if you arrange for your local furniture removalists to help you out with the heavy lifting, it is much more likely that you will have the energy required to unpack your belongings as soon as you get to the new property.
