It has been said that moving home is one of the most stressful things we do in life, right up there with getting married / divorced or starting a new job. There is a lot to think about but the good news is that you can minimise the stress by making sure you are adequately prepared for the big day. When planning, consider the information below to assist with packing up your belongings and transporting them to your new home.
DIY Removals Vs. Professional Movers
There are plenty of instances where a DIY removal is not such a bad idea. If you are only moving a relatively short distance and you don’t have tons of stuff, you can probably hire an 8x5m Box Trailer, or even a smaller equipment trailer and a cargo trolley to get the job done with a couple of strong mates to give you a helping hand. There is also the option of hiring a small pantec truck which can be driven on a car licence. If you choose this option, shop around and get one with an electric tail lift. This will save you heaps of lifting. On the other hand, if you are moving a long distance or even interstate, it makes sense to use a professional removal company.
Lifting heavy objects is not something to be trifle with, it needs serious consideration. While some loads are physically impossible to hoist without the aid of lifting equipment, other things can be lifted but at what cost to your body and your safety? No matter what line of business you are in or how often you undertake DIY projects at home, it is virtually impossible to own every type of lifting or propping equipment you may need for all the jobs you do. Therefore it helps to know about the various types of equipment you can hire as the need arises.
