Hiring Removalists or DIY Removals

Furniture Removalists

Some people try to save money and do the furniture removal themselves. There are arguments for and against and certainly the money saving aspect heads the ‘for’ list. Perhaps we should ask an experienced furniture removalist to outline the Pros and Cons of DIY removals or hiring professional furniture removalists.

Here’s Jason –

There are a few questions about the removal that need to be asked before we skip to the pros and cons. These are:

1) How big is your house?

2) How much stuff will be required to be moved?

3) Are you going to need a truck? If yes, how big? Or will a ute be okay?

4) Any valuable and breakable items with which you need to be especially careful?

5) What is access like at both the current house and the new place?

Once these questions have been answered you can then decide on a DIY removal or getting in touch with professional removalists.

For example, if your answer was that you have a big house, tons of stuff to move, a few breakables that you want to be careful with, and that the access might be a bit tricky, the suggestion would be that it is a job for the professionals.

But we said we would weigh up the Pros and Cons, so let’s do that anyway!
