Removal Companies can Save you a Lot of Time
Time is the one thing you can’t buy more of. Moving house takes time. From the weeks of packing in advance to the loading of the van, travelling and unloading at the other end – it’s a time-consuming process. If you’ve ever moved yourself you’ll know how long packing takes – it can take some people weeks on end, especially if you are fitting it in around your day job or taking care of the kids. A professional removal company helps people move every day, so they’ve got it down to an art. If you want to save your time then get the movers in to take care of the whole moving day so that your time will be your own.
So many people completely underestimate the sheer volume of items they’ve accumulated over the years. Packing one of the more time-consuming tasks, you can save yourself a lot of time by hiring a removals company who do this for a living! Then once the packing is complete, the next time-consuming job s loading the van. This is certainly not easy, especially if the van is on the small side or if you have tricky to handle items. It can become like a complex game of Tetris with many trips back and forth from the house.
Moving to a new home is a long process which requires a lot of effort. There is more to do than simply pack up your belongings and move them. If you leave that to the movers then you are free to take care of everything else. There’s the admin, finalising the payments, the address changes, registering at new doctors, the schools, settling the kids in. When you use a removal company like AVM, you can rest assured that they can be left to it while you work on something else.
Professional Removers are Skilled at Packing Precious, Valuable and Fragile Possessions
We’ve all got things around the house that are heavy, delicate, valuable or even just sentimental. not only will a fully trained removal crew have the right experience and knowledge of exactly how to pack and transport these kinds of items safely and securely, but the company will also be able to offer you insurance to protect your goods in the unlikely situation that something should get damaged or broken while in their care. They do this for a living so have years of experience. With a removal company, you will not need to stress about how you are going to get your grand piano in a van from its position on the top floor. We are certain that any difficult task you could present to the AVM removers, they will have experience in something similar and know exactly what to do.
It’s a skill and a profession. If you want your move done properly then leave it to the pros. Removal companies have all the correct equipment that go beyond boxes and duct tape. Size-specific lorries, blankets/covers, packing paper, van blankets are just some of the removal specific accessories that AVM have on offer to ensure a safe and smooth move. So as we have all the appropriate tools and accessories, why not let us help you make your move as stress-free as possible!
A Removal Company Can Take Away a Lot of Stress
The process of moving house is stressful. If you’re buying/selling then it’s likely you’ve just been through months or even years of anxiety and stressful negotiations to secure your new home and a buyer for your old one. You’ve probably had just about enough of chasing solicitors to get back to you, enduring additional fees and dates continuously changing. If you’re renting then we doubt you had an easy ride either, by the time the viewings are done and you’ve jumped through all the landlords’ hoops we’ll bet you’re pretty stressed out too. If this sounds like you, then the thought of finally being in your new home probably sounds great, but the thought of how to get there isn’t so exciting.
One of the main reasons people find moving house stressful is because of the immense workload involved. Moving house is exciting, it’s a new chapter, an adventure. Don’t let your spirits be horribly dampened by the associated stress. Why not outsource some or all of that workload to a company trained to do exactly that? Removal companies can provide such a wide range of services that if you want to, you can wake up in your bed at your old house one morning and go to bed in the new home the same night without having to have done much more than getting in your car, driving there and pointing to where you want things.
Moving house is stressful enough, but when you add a baby, young children, pets, or maybe an elderly relative into the mix the stress tends to multiply rapidly. Finding time to pack, keeping the boxes out of your way or locating items you thought you wouldn’t need in the middle of the night when someone is crying can drive even the sanest people mad. Using a professional removal company can help alleviate some of that though. By taking care of things like packing and loading, it leaves you free to concentrate on other, more important things.
Some removal companies will also help with unpacking, while others even have additional handyman or housemaid services to help with the finer details of a move like hanging pictures and shelves, assembling furniture, fitting light fixtures, cleaning your old house and unpacking kitchen goods into cupboards leaving you to concentrate on getting set up and settled in. If this sounds good to you, contact AVM today!
Hiring a Removal Company is Very Cost Effective
A removal company may not be the cheapest option. Recruiting friends and borrowing your Uncle’s van is probably initially cheaper but, there is more risk that you friend could drop your TV, ram your table in the door-frame, or the van could be too small. The costs of doing your move yourself will gradually build up. A removal company is a much clearer cut-price and with insurance, any breakages or accidents that take place will be covered. Those accidents are pretty unlikely if you’re using the experts. So, it may not seem cheap but it is a cost-effective solution.
A Removal Company Will Be Prepared
Not every move is as straightforward as moving from A to B. If you’ve moved several times before then you’ll be aware that even the most organised of moves can throw up challenges or unplanned surprises. You might find there are items of furniture you can’t lift properly, delicate or valuable items you need extra protection for or bad weather that you hadn’t prepared for too which can cause you delays and make the job take a lot longer than you expected. This can make the moving day really stressful, especially if you’ve got new owners waiting outside ready to move in. Hiring a moving company means you can leave all of this to them. They will take all of the above into account in planning the move to make sure the right time and resources are allocated to ensure everything runs smoothly and on time. When it comes to problems on move day, removal company crews and move managers are highly trained to spot potential problems and deal with them as and when they arise. It might be something simple like finding somewhere to park the lorry at your new house, bad weather or something more complicated like dismantling an item that’s been overlooked in the rush to prepare for move day – whatever it is they will deal with it calmly and professionally, allowing you to focus on other things.
With A Removal Company, Nothing Will Be Left Behind
If you are moving this time of year, then there is nothing quite as devastating as realising two weeks after you’ve moved that you left your Christmas Tree and Decorations in your old garage or even the worse, the presents you bought nice and early in preparation. With a removal company like AVM, you can have peace of mind that the experts have all the experience to know where to check and double check before they leave your house. You will be able to enjoy your new property will all your belongings accounted for.
Insurance – Safe and Secure
Although not all removal services come with insurance, there are a few companies that will be able to ensure your items during transit for an extra fee. This can be a great way to get a little peace of mind, and can really help if you’re moving a lot of fragile or expensive items, or if you’re preparing for office removals. If you are hiring a company, make sure you inquire about their insurance policies to see if you can be insured or not.
One of the main reasons why people rely on removals companies is to help with all the heavy lifting. A removals company will literally do all the work including the heavy lifting and dealing with the awkward angles that you may struggle with or may not be able to do yourself. Moving furniture and furniture removals can be a tough business, especially if you suffer from any existing injuries, if you live on your own or if you have a lot of furniture to move. Hiring a moving team can be incredibly beneficial if you’re facing any of these issues, as they’ll be able to swiftly and easily carry and move your furniture with ease. It’s also a good idea to hire professional help if you have antique, rare or expensive items of furniture that you want to see being handled with care.
Removal Companies are generally bigger and provide a wider variety of vehicles. Your moving company should be able to provide you with the perfect sized and safe vehicle to transport your items with. Moving with a large van is a much better idea than moving in your own car or small van, as you can fit in more items and therefore make fewer trips between properties. You might even find that hiring a removal van works out cheaper for you than driving in your own car would, especially if you’re moving to a new area or planning for a long-distance move.
Support and Advice
Hiring a company that can provide you with skilled and experienced movers can give you a lot of breathing space, and you’ll also be able to get the help and support that you really need at such a stressful time. Whether you’ve moved house a thousand times before or if you’ve never moved on your own, removal companies can offer you advice, help and support that you might not know that you needed. From physical help with lifting, carrying and loading, to practical advice when it comes to packing or unpacking, your movers can provide you with invaluable information that will keep you calm, prepared and collected on moving day. Hiring professional moving teams can really make a huge difference to your move, so have a look to see what the companies in your area have to offer!
Professionalism and Experience
Professional removals companies like AVM, train all of their staff on how to lift items safely and efficiently, as well as training on health and safety regulations. Customer service is also something that’s incredibly important to us and all our staff are dedicated to ensuring they provide the best service possible to all our customers. It’s their job to ensure that everything in the home is transferred safely without any potential accidents. A good removals company will make sure that the appropriate measures are taken to maintain the goods of your home, but are also covered with the appropriate insurance if need be. Your friends and family can probably help you out on removals day but a professional removals company can ensure that everything that is packed will stay intact.
There is a way to pack items keeping them safe, secure and protected. The van will be loaded with purpose and with logic. Your movers will consider the order in which to load and to empty the van based on which items will be needed first. Professional removals companies also have multiple staff and will be readily available, meaning service is swift and efficient. A man with a van service may offer something similar but are rarely able to compete with the size and efficiency of a professional removals company.
It might be that you need to go into rented accommodation while you search for a new house to buy, or you might be moving in with friends or family while your dream house is being built, or maybe there has been a delay in your chain? Whatever the reason, it leaves you with one problem – what to do with everything you own while you’re in a period of transition. Many reputable removal companies also provide storage services these days, so while you’re not directly moving house it’s always worth considering this option. Not only will your goods be packed and handled properly, but you’ll also have peace of mind knowing they’re stored safely and securely for the duration you require.
