Why hiring professional movers can make your life easier

Whether you’re moving your home or office, relocating can be a very stressful experience.

Fortunately, there’s a way to move without any added headaches. In this article we’ll show you
how choosing professional movers could help save you time, money and stress as you
prepare for the big changes that lie ahead.

Moving is more stressful than you think

According to a recent UK survey, the stress involved in moving house can make the process
almost as traumatic as divorce or changing careers. While it may seem simple enough to
organise your own move, it’s easy to underestimate the difficulty involved in the upheaval.

Hiring professional movers makes great sense when you recognise that moving is a complex
. Packing, storing, trucking and delivering your valuables isn’t something that should be
left to chance – or to your well-meaning cousin who offers to lend you his bakkie and trailer. Not
forgetting the fact that you could be asked to return the favour in the future!

The number of variables at play during a move (from lost and stolen items to vehicle
breakdowns) make it extremely difficult to manage with just a few friends or relatives to help
you. Here are some key reasons why a professional moving company should be your first

You’ll save money

If you’re thinking of moving your own furniture and belongings because it sounds cheaper,
here’s some surprising news: hiring a moving company can save you a lot of money.

  • Packing materials including boxes, bubble wrap, tape and straps can end up costing thousands of rand – especially when you buy them at retail price. These items are usually included in a professional moving quote so you won’t have to budget for them individually.
  • Making multiple trips with a borrowed bakkie or trailer will soon start to add up in terms of fuel costs, broken items and the expense you’ll incur by hiring casual laborers. A moving company will move all your items safely and efficiently, letting you get on with more important things.
  • If something gets broken by yourself or even a friend who’s helping you with the move you have to deal with both the emotional loss and the hard cost – yourself. When professional movers pack your items and you accept the transit risk cover in your quote, any breakages during transit will be covered by the moving company.

You’ll save time

Moving takes a lot longer than a few hours in the day. Unless time is your friend and you
have a week of leave in hand you’ll need to start packing your belongings weeks in advance,
and repeat the process to unpack them at your destination. Packing and unpacking could
add up to more than 100 hours of your valuable time.

  • To reduce the stress of moving, a professional moving company will pack your belongings quickly and efficiently in a day or two. This means you’ll be able to enjoy your old home and its contents right until the eve of your journey.
  • Every hour you spend packing and moving is time you can’t get back – not to mention the risk of injury from lifting heavy boxes and furniture. Let professional movers take care of the heavy lifting while you focus on your career and family.
