Moving house can be a wonderful time. There is much to look forward to. A new home, a fresh space, a renewed opportunity to organize things differently. All of these things, coupled with a bigger house, and a bigger garden, for example, can make it an exciting journey.

However, it can be equally stressful. Packing up your things, deciding what to keep and what to leave behind. In addition, what to sell and what to donate. All of these decisions can make the task daunting, overwhelming and take the joy out of what could otherwise be an exciting time. 

In addition, packing up boxes can transporting them can also be add further difficulty. Some may attempt to self-move believing that it will save them money and award them flexibility. This could not be further from the truth. Read on to learn why hiring professional removal services is the smarter option.

1. Security and Safety

The fact is, while you may want to pack your own belongings, professional removalists know how to safely pack and unpack your belongings so that they have the best chance of surviving the moving process. 

Large and expensive electricals and fragile ornamental pieces are all at risk of damage. Professional movers will have the experience to pack and unpack items for you in a way that protects them from unwanted disasters.

2. Insurance

The fact is, professional companies will offer insurance that will protect you in the event of any breakages or damage. This will give you peace of mind, especially if you have items that are sentimental or of high value. It also shows that your removal company are trust in their own skills and experience to not cause damage since they are at risk of a potentially large payout should anything get damaged.

3. Time-Saving

Packing up and unpacking is time consuming. Many people erroneously believe they can save time by doing it themselves. The fact is, when you have a large number of items to pack up and transport, this is going to take multiple trips over days or even weeks. A removal company can come at a time that is convenient for you, and pack up and transport you within just hours. This will make the process smooth, efficient and time-saving for you. If you have a time frame within which to move, it makes absolute sense to hire help to get it done.

4. Money-Saving

You may think packing and moving yourself will save you money too, however, it may potentially get more costly. If it takes you longer to move, then you may end up paying rent in both places too. In addition, you may need to take multiple trips which add up in fuel costs.

5. Less Stress

Moving homes is one of the most stressful things anyone can go through in their lifetimes. It is a complete upheaval of familiarity and routine, and the prospect of settling in a new place can be incredibly daunting for money. 

Given that it is so stressful in itself, hiring professional removal services to lighten your workload makes sense. They can assist you and potentially take a large portion of the stress off your shoulders. In addition, trying to move heavy furniture and electricals is also risky for your health and potentially damaging your back at this crucial time may not be a risk you want to take.


Moving home is undoubtedly a stressful time. Instead of taking on the task by yourself, you can move the smart way and hire professional removal services to take the load off you. They can pack and unpack your items, and offer you peace of mind when it comes to valuables. In addition, you can save time and money too.
