Why You Should Opt For Professional Packing

28Nov 2014

Moving house is certainly one of the most stressful processes you will undergo in life. Not only that, it also costs you a chunk of your money, irrespective of whether you hire professional movers or do it yourself. However, anyone who has moved houses will tell you that do it yourself can be overwhelming, and not many people who try that option return to it again. Logistically as well, it makes sense to have people who have been trained in handling this task allowed to do it. This bores well for the safety of both you and your belongings. Sometimes, because most people use professional help for every part of the moving process, they often want to do the packing themselves, either for self-assurance or to save money. However, not everyone can be proficient in packing all kinds of items safely and securely in spite of the many tutorials that are available online.Trying to pack your belonging yourself instead of employing professional removal help to do it for you might sometimes not be such a good idea as you think it is. Here are some of the problems that you might encounter in the process. 1.    Underestimating packaging material neededYou might have accumulated a lot of stuff over the years, and because you see them lying around all the time, you might not be able to a correct estimate of the volume of things that you have to move and the amount of packaging materials that you will need. This might end up affecting your move such that either you might not pack your items securely or you might have to make several runs to the shop to buy more packing material each time. If you run out of packing material at the last minute, you might not be able to refill your supply until the next day which is moving day. This might compromise or delay your move.2.    Not leaving enough time to packGiven that you will be taking care of so many things regarding your house move, it is only natural that you might keep putting off the packing. Besides, you might also think that you might need most of the stuff until the last minute or the last week and it may not be until then that you start packing. Usually, packing each item carefully is a very time consuming process and if you don’t leave enough time to do the job well or not use additional help, you might end up with broken and damaged items at the end of the move. 3.    Not so cheap as you thoughtIt is possible, since you don’t do it often, that you didn’t pack some things properly and that they were damaged or broken during the move. Not only will you lose your sentimental possessions, but will also have to spend money in repairing them or buying them. Besides, your items will not be covered by removal insurance either. If your move is delayed because you ran out of packing material and your house movers are kept waiting, they will obviously be charging you for the wait period as well. This is not to mention that you might hurt yourself in moving heavy items around and the cost to your health surpasses all other extra expenses.So the next time your removal company inquires if you need them to take care of packing as well, give it a thought and discuss it with your removals expert. Some moving companies will tailor a packing service that will meet your packing requirements and be within your budget as well.
