Why You Should Not Move By Yourself

We all change locations from time to time, and for different reasons. It's a recurring part of living. And whatever your reason for deciding to move or change location is, there are different ways to go about it. You can either have your home move or furniture removals done by yourself or you can employ the use of a moving company. My advice, however, is that you use a moving company. The reason I say this is because there are cons with moving yourself that you can prevent when you a moving company instead.

Problems with self-moving and furniture removal

  • Lifting of heavyweights: I know that not all the items in your home that needs moving will be light weighted or easy to carry. There probably will be a couple of heavy furniture like chairs, bed frames, mattresses, refrigerators, movable wardrobes, and a lot more. Moving these things personally will be very hard on you and might be very tiring. Imagine having to move your refrigerator into your moving vehicle all by yourself, or maybe even with the help of a friend or family member, the stress on you and your helper will definitely be much. This is why I recommend that you use a moving company instead of doing this all on your own. You will be able to relax and watch the professionals handle everything for you.
  • Planning: Furniture removal and home moving require a lot of planning to be successful. You need to decide what to carry, how to arrange the loads in your vehicle to accommodate them, the perfect route, and so on. Long story short, the planning required for a home move is very much and can be so stressful that the best way to do it is to use a moving company. The companies have been in the business for quite some time and they have done some furniture removals and house moving job, this makes it easier for them to professionally make plans on your behalf.
  • Unexpected problems: If you decide to move all by yourself. You might be faced with unexpected problems in the furniture removal process, or even during the moving proper. When these unexpected problems occur, it might be hard for you to deal with them all on your own. This is where the importance of a professional moving company comes into play. Most moving companies have had enough experience with problems that arise during a home move or furniture removal. This makes them better positioned and prepared to handle any unexpected problem that might occur during your home moving process.

These above issues and more are reasons why you shouldn't move all by yourself, instead, use the service of a professional and recognized moving company. Be careful, however, when choosing a moving company. This is because using some moving companies also can have some disadvantages like:

    • Lost items during transit: Some moving companies have been reported to have misplaced client or customer items during the moving process and cause issues for the customer by so doing.
    • Delays with collection and delivery of items: Some moving companies tend to have a rather sluggish response to customer calls. They take time to remove customers' items from the old house and even take a long time before delivering the customers' items to their new home.
    • Damage of items: This occurs during removal, in transit or when installing items in new homes. There are moving companies who might be unprofessional and cause damages to movers' items. Also, some moving companies might cause damage to the walls, floors, or ceilings of the customers home or building they are moving away from, as well as the new property they are moving into leading to a need for extra spending on home repairs.
    • Cost: Some moving companies also charge too much for the service they are rendering to customers.

These problems associated with the use of some moving companies is the reason I am recommending that you use Wise Move when next you need furniture removal or home move service.

They helped us with a house move from Hamilton to Christchurch. On the day of the move the truck arrived well on time and everything was loaded and good to go in pretty much one hour! Matt was a great help and really friendly to deal with. As agreed on, the truck arrived two days later in Christchurch and unloading was done quick and efficiently! Just remember that, as reflected on their price, you can’t expect everything to come out without any scratch if you don't wrap it yourself. We made sure everything was good to go on the day of move and wrapped our more valuable stuff in bubble wrap, plastic wrap or in sturdy boxes. That worked great for us and made their job a lot easier I imagine.

Epic packing! Strong, fast movers and so polite and sweet. Only 2 items with tiny damage. But muddy crap conditions and I'm insured excess so not worth it, as I say nominal. For the price chur chur!!! I feel blessed that's all that happened to be honest! Paid for 3 both ways, 3 showed for pickup, 2 for delivery, don't refund, just buy the two a box. I thought delivery 3 hours?? Maybe?? Done in 1.5. So pleased. Thank you team, thank you, thank you. Moving from Whangarei Heads to Orks is hell stressful, your people did the job above my expectations and I am very very grateful. Highly recommend!!

Pawan and his team were excellent! We moved across the country, and despite this long distance we miraculously had no breakage of delicate kitchen items, and only a few minor scuffs and scrapes (to be expected) on a few tricky furniture items. They were great with communication, and arrived promptly with a load in and load out well faster than we expected. They were also very understanding and helpful when we had a lot more gear than we’d initially planned, with very reasonable pricing given we had to take extra space, and also scheduling flexibly for us so that we could be there at both ends of the trip. Payment was easy - they just gave us the bank details after the move was complete and were very easy to work with. Super lovely guys too - very friendly and reassuring which is exactly what you want on a high pressured and stressful moving day. Overall would highly recommend and will definitely be giving them a call again next time we have gear to move. Can’t thank them enough!
