by | Jun 25, 2019 | Moving

Are you about to move house? There’s a lot to think about, isn’t there? It’s a massive job, so have you considered hiring a professional removals firm to help you? While you can always do it yourself or hire a ‘man with a van’, leaving it to the professionals transforms moving day from an anxiety-inducing mission into an efficient and very manageable task.

Professional movers make moving easier and less physically demanding

Hiring a professional removals team isn’t a big deal. It makes perfect sense for anyone with furniture or more than a carload of stuff to move.

Here’s why leaving the heavy lifting to the professionals makes moving day easier:

It takes a huge stress off your shoulders: You won’t have to worry about how you’re going to get the wardrobe up the stairs, or how many car trips you’ll have to do. Movers can even help with packing and unpacking, if you want.

More time to focus on admin and getting settled: You’ll actually be able to focus on preparing for your move, doing all the paperwork and setting up your new home.

Save yourself the bad back: Movers use specialist equipment to safely get even the heaviest pieces of furniture to your new home.

Know that you’re covered if accidents happen: When you use a professional mover that belongs to the British Association of Removers (BAR), your contents insurance should cover the risks of moving. Plus, the mover will be fully insured.

How do you know if a mover is reputable?

When choosing a removals company, check their website for:

  • A BAR accreditation badge
  • A direct contact number (make sure there’s a landline, not just a mobile number)
  • Positive testimonials from past happy customers
