Moving Houses Should I DIY or Hire Professional Movers
Moving houses can often signify an important milestone in life. Be it, a sign of independence and you moving away from your parents’ care, or due to marriage. However, moving houses can often be tiring and time-consuming. One of the biggest questions that you will have to face is whether to hire professional movers or to Do-It-Yourself (DIY).
To help you, we have compiled the advantages of both options, so that you can have an easier time deciding whether to engage a lorry rental service provider or to hire a professional moving company in Singapore.
The Benefits of DIY moving:
If you are planning to try DIY moving, then you will find yourself having more freedom in terms of how you want to carry out the moving process.
This is because DIY moving means renting either a van or lorry, giving you access to the vehicle for a whole day, rather than the limited timing of professional movers. It also means that extra trips and sudden changes of destination are hassle-free. Furthermore, you get to control how your fragile furniture and plants are treated during loading and unloading.
Professional movers may charge you extra costs if you wish to go to a further location or if you have any additional locations. On the other hand, when you move houses DIY, you can rent a lorry or van at a fixed rate per day and use it however you want to. Giving you the freedom to travel to places uninterrupted.
Moving house DIY means everything is suited to you. Renting a lorry or van gives you more freedom in terms of planning your move, whereas if you are to hire a professional mover, you will have to pack everything within a designated time frame. This means that you will be able to pack and load all your belongings at your pace.
The Benefits of professional movers:
Professional movers are under contract, which means, unlike your friends or family members who might take their own sweet time moving your valuables, the professionals will turn up with all the necessary equipment and proceed to do their jobs swiftly, saving many hours.
Efficient and effortless, there is no doubt that one of the biggest selling points of hiring professional movers is the lack of stress. With little to no planning required and there being no need to lift a finger, you will find yourself relaxed during the whole moving process.
So, which option do you choose? Well as said in the opening paragraph, the chances are that you are moving houses at a milestone in your life, and making this decision depends on which milestone you are at. If you are a newly-wedded couple, the likelihood is that you will not want to spend too much on moving, meaning that DIY moving is an option for you.
With that said, in Singapore, it can be quite hard to find time to pre-pack your belongings to a specific fixed date due to the hectic work life. Which is why we would recommend most people to try DIY moving, as you will have full control of when you pack and move.
