If you are moving to Swindon you might be thinking something along the lines of ‘hey, when I move to Swindon I’d just going spend a day or two so driving back and forth from my old town to move everything’. While this might sound good in theory, in reality it’s not something you will ever want to undertake.
Lets explore the benefits of hiring a professional removals company to help with you move instead.
Planning is Easy!
If you are going to move everything yourself get ready to spend a few hours planning how you are going to tackle your move. Trust me on this! I did this once and it’s not as easy as driving everything to the new location. You will need to asses everything in your home and figure out if you will need to have a small truck or a moving van. And that’s just the start of your planning.
All of this is taken care of when you hire a professional moving company.
Everything is Insured
When you deal with a professional company the law states that they can not be in business unless they have insurance. That insurance will cover your belongings if there are any issues. Imagine you are 50 miles from home and 100 miles to your new home. Suddenly the truck you hired is hit by another car. Half you belongings end up on the highway and another car crashes to avoid hitting what came put of your truck.
Does your insurance cover that persons accident? The money involved could ruin your life compared to a few hundred quid that a moving company will charge. If you do everything yourself you’ll really want to buy some home movers insurance so you have the peace of mind knowing you are covered.
No Heavy Lifting
A moving company is going to come into your home and move everything for you. If you are planning to do everything yourself then what is your plan to deal with bed frames? Couches? TV Cabinets? Bookshelves and more. Doing the heavy lifting yourself means you’ll have to get someone hired to help or get friends to help. Now friends might not cost money but you are not the type of person expecting this done for free right? You’d at least want to take them to dinner after.
So, you see, doing the lifting yourself won’t actually save money.
Only One Trip
One of the best parts of hiring a moving company is that you won’t need to make several trips. As long as you are using a reputable removalist then everything should be taken care of. You’ll have everything packed and ready to go. They will come in and pack the trucks, then load up all the big items like the beds, mattresses and so on.
And that’s it. They are off to the new place and you can drive along or just give them the keys and they can take care of it all while you clean your old place or have a cleaning company come and do that work.
Best of All – It’s Convenient!
Hiring a moving company seems like a big step but it really isn’t. You just need to find a few that you like. Get some quotes and then take it from there. It’s quite easy actually. Where do you find a good company? It’s best to look locally first. As you are moving to Swindon you will pay extra for a moving company to drive back to Swindon. But if they have to come to you first you shouldn’t get charged more.
The best bet it to look in the Swindon Advitisor’s business directory for removals. Or click on their logo to the right.
This is the best part. Hiring a real moving company to do the work makes life easy. Ok, maybe if you live in a studio it’s ok to deal with it lone range and be Mr. Solo! But if you have a four bedroom home with 10+ years of junk that has been collected and you’re keeping it all. Well, that moving company is going to be a life saver.
The moving company does this for a living. They know what they are doing and there won’t be any surprises. You’ll be out of your old place and into the new one before you know it.
