Reasons Why DIY Removals are a BAD Idea


“Why do I need a professional removalist?” you ask. Where do we even start? There are so many reasons why a professional removalist is the best choice when moving. Here are the top 3 reasons you should opt for a Professional Movers Sydney as opposed to attempting a DIY move.

DIY moves can be dangerous

DIY moves can result in damaged items, or worse yet, can result in bodily harm. Moving heavy items, such as furniture, requires not just physical strength but also the right equipment and expertise. Movers don’t just offer manpower but come with years of moving experience and know exactly how to maneuverer a sofa down narrow stairs, just as they know how to safely move a piano without compromising it in any way. Why risk hurting your back or twisting your ankle attempting a DIY move when you can simply hire the experts to do it for you.

DIY moves are not all that cheap


One of the biggest myths when it comes to moving is that DIY moves are so much cheaper than hiring removalists. But, is this really true? Let’s break down the costs and see. Firstly, when you’re doing a DIY move, you will have to hire a truck for transportation. Add to that the costs of buying cardboard boxes and other packing materials, and the time and effort you will have to invest, and the final cost of a DIY move is actually much higher than you assume. You also need to consider the benefits that you get when you hire professionals. For instance, AAA provides free boxes and packing materials, free utility changeover, and transit insurance. The benefits far outweigh the costs, which is why hiring a professional mover is the sensible thing to do.

DIY moves are inconvenient

Most people list the moving house as one of the most stressful life events. There are a lot of uncertainties involved when moving to a new place. You will be anxious and worried about making new friends and fitting into the community. It’s a big change and it’s only natural for you to feel a little anxious. But why make it worse by taking on the move yourself? Why not choose to have a hassle-free, smooth move that leaves you feeling relaxed? You should be doing everything you can to make the move pleasant, not add to your worries by taking on responsibilities that are best left to the experts.
