Are you considering moving home? If you are, you are about to undertake one of the most stressful situations in life. According to healthstatus.com moving home is “notorious for causing stress” and ranks at third on their list. However, moving doesn’t have to be stressful, and by using a professional moving company you can alleviate a lot of the factors associated with stress. Here are some of the reasons you should never plan a move on your own.
Organizing Your Move
Any professional company worth their salt will visit your home and measure up the volume of your belongings. This will not be a rough estimate; it will be as near as possible to the actual total volume as possible. If you try to do this on your own, the chances are that you will hire a truck that is too big or too small. That will either cost you too much money, or mean renting another vehicle; both of which will cause you stress. A professional company will also work out the best route to a new property and have a time scale for the move that you can be sure will work, and will have an inventory that ensures all your belongings are packed and delivered to the room where you need your belongings to go..
After the measuring up, your removal company should give you the option of packing your belongings yourself or to have them pack for you. Most people will tend to want to pack personal belongings themselves (here is a great site to give you some packing ideas), and your company will supply the boxes and crates necessary for this. However, when it comes to your damageable belongings, it would be a better idea to let your movers handle them. This way you will know that your furniture, electrical goods and glassware will arrive in one piece and unmarked. You may think that insurance will give you complete peace of mind, but insurance will never take away the worry of your favourite things being broken en route.
Loading a moving truck is an art form that is beyond you and me. There is a logic to the way it is done that allows your belongings to be packed in as secure a way as possible, and also allows for the maximum use of the space available. A professional moving company, like movinonmovers.com, will have all the packing materials and equipment to make sure everything is as safe as possible. Packing will be placed between items, and everything will be strapped down to minimize movement on the journey, and this will stop items like furniture and crates scraping against each other. If you do this yourself, you could find yourself spending hours rearranging your belongings, all the while becoming more and more stressed.
As mentioned earlier, insurance can’t replace sentimental objects or a favourite chair, but it is comforting to know that it will automatically be in place with your removal company. Knowing that your new leather suite will be replaced should anything untoward happens can stop worry in its tracks, and knowing that your removal company’s insurance will cover the complete contents of your home means that the worst you can feel is apprehension of having completely new house contents. Not all insurances are the same though, so make sure that you check the insurance of your company before agreeing to use them.
This is what it all boils down to. A professional moving company will have the skills and experience to make your move go seamlessly and without incident. Without these skills, every time a problem occurs you will become more anxious, and every new problem will increase the anxiety. However, for a removal company to meet a new obstacle is rare indeed, and even if they do; they will already have an idea of how to overcome it. Every stage of a move to a new home can be stressful but, luckily, there is usually somebody else who can absorb that stress for you. So, if you want to know how to have a stress free move, the answer is simple; let somebody else move you.
